Cinefamily Kids Around with "Yo Gabba Gabba"
Clear your Fridays in May: The Cinefamily is showcasing a series of obscure and funky kids-oriented films and TV programs from the 1970s and 1980s. And here's the cool part: It's being curated by "Yo Gabba Gabba's" DJ Lance (Lance Robertson), as well as animation producer Kevin Sukho Lee.
The event includes "Animation Night: European Stop-Motion Favorites" shown with "Hugo The Hippo" on May 7; "Infra-Man" shown with "Godzilla vs. Megalon" on May 14; "J.T." shown with "The Wiz" on May 21; and Mondo Krofft-O (feat. "Pufnstuf") on May 28.
They're calling the event "The Big Blue Marble" (which, you may recall, was a popular early 1980s kids TV show).
Also, on Tuesday, May 11, the folks behind "Yo Gabba Gabba" will hold a screening, discussion and more, centered on the origins and inspirations behind their hip tot hit.
