The Return of Doctor Tony

March 17, 2010

That's right, Toodee, I am.

The Yo Gaba Gabba! episode featuring Anthony Bourdain aired last week, and it was just as surreal as the preview made it out to be.

There’s a tradition of notoriously foul-mouthed celebrities appearing on children’s shows: George Carlin was Mr. Conductor on Shining Time Station (as was Alec Baldwin), go back and you ‘ll find Uncle Floyd and Soupy Sales, but those hosts didn’t drive home the creepiness the way Tony did when he said “That’s right, Toodee, I am.” Just look at that smirk: what is he really thinking?

As an extra bonus, the episode contains the wacky tune from Of Montreal:

Snark for the adults, snacks for the kids – what more could you want from television?
