There is something about magic, mysteries and spies that entertain and fascinate children. As least for my daughter. And when I think of magic I cannot help but be brought back five years to when my husband and I watched all three seasons of Arrested Development. That is when I was first introduced to Jason Bateman and laughed at Will Arnett’s character Gob, and unsuccessful professional magician, until my sides hurt.
Back to the new release, Yo Gabba Gabba: Super Spies features an episode featuring Jason Bateman as a mean balloon art stealing spy! We all enjoy the quirky, nostalgically Japanese essense of Yo Gabba Gabba and I know that the parents probably enjoy the guest stars more than the children, which makes it more enjoyable to watch the episodes together.
This DVD is available in stores now or find it at your favorite online retailer such as Amazon.com.
