As a fan from the beginning, I have to admit that it is still a little surprising to hear Yo Gabba Gabba be brought up in regular conversation on television, but it happens all the time! Whether it's written into the dialog (like on Community and Dexter), a stuffed Brobee doll appearing on an episode of Parenthood, or celebrities talking about how much they love Yo Gabba Gabba in interviews, it's hard to find any other children's television show talked about so often!
The most recent celebrity shout outs come from Jerry O'Connell, Joel McHale, and Conan O'Brien's interview with Jack McBrayer!
We have video of Jack McBrayer discussing with Conan O'Brien his appearances on Yo Gabba Gabba's Knock Knock Joke of the Day segments!
On today's episode of The Talk, observant Gabba Friend, Dillonsmommy, alerted us to Jerry O'Connell talking about letting his kids stay up to watch Yo Gabba Gabba, and the fact that he and his wife, Rebecca Romijn O'Connell, are both very excited about seeing Yo Gabba Gabba Live in Los Angeles! In fact, O'Connell told PopEater today, "My wife and I keep joking that we're going to rent a limo, get really drunk and go see the show. I called my mom and told her I'm getting tickets for Yo Gabba Gabba and she said, 'Oh for you and Rebecca?' I was like, 'Yeah just for the two of us.' My wife and I were joking about how funny it would be if just the two of us went. We love all of them, Plex, Brobee."
I'm sure all of us can relate to being more excited than the kids for Yo Gabba Gabba Live!!

Speaking of Yo Gabba Gabba Live in Los Angeles, another show was recently added! Check out the Yo Gabba Gabba Live Website for more details!
I also came across this quote by Joel McHale in an interview he did with MomLogic!
MomLogic asked McHale: By the way, "What the Kids Are Watching" on "The Soup" is absolutely hysterical. Do you watch those shows with your kids and then use any funny material you might see?
And Joel McHale responded: "Well, Eddie is pretty train-centric these days. We are to the point now where we watch train documentaries with him. And like even though I like it, like he is not into Yo Gabba Gabba or those types of shows. I like Yo Gabba Gabba. I want to be on 'Yo Gabba Gabba.'"
Believe me, Joel McHale, Gabba Friends all want to see YOU on Yo Gabba Gabba!
