WandaVision brings Yo Gabba Gabba to the MCU and the mother and father are delighted
Parents everywhere were thrilled to see the popular children’s program, Yo Gabba Gabba, featured on the latest episode of WandaVision. Without going into the details of the episode for those who haven’t seen it, there was a moment on WandaVision that saw Brobee and friends singing and dancing on TV. This may seem insignificant to some, but the show’s cameo makes Yo Gabba Gabba officially “canon” in the MCU.
Yo Gabba Gabba! is one of the most popular children’s programs that many parents love to watch with their little ones. Because of this, many people expressed their enthusiasm for merging the series with the MCU. Hours after the WandaVision episode hit Disney +, Yo Gabba Gabba had started trending on social media, with parents celebrating the lovely surprise.
“yo gabba gabba in the mcu is the crossover that we didn’t ask for but that we needed,” read a popular tweet, including crying emoji to imply tears of joy.

Recognizing Yo Gabba Gabba also means that every guest star and band on the program now technically exists in the MCU. This excites other fans for a variety of reasons with a tweet: “Now that Yo Gabba Gabba is canon. My chemical romance exists in both the MCU and the Aquabaten.”

“If Yo Gabba Gabba is MCU canon, it means Biz Markie is MCU canon too,” wrote another fan of the show.

Others go so far as to propose other theories, such as a fan who suspects this will lead to the introduction of the Fantastic Four. “Yo Gabba Gabba is canon in the MCU now,” says one fan. “What if they’re the Fantastic 4? The guy is Doctor Doom and the robot is the silver surfer. Marvel / Disney with the 4d Chess.”

One of the big reasons it was so strange to see Yo Gabba Gabba on WandaVision is that Disney does not own the rights to the Nickelodeon series. There are any number of children’s programs that Marvel Studios could have pulled from Disney’s content library in order not to pay royalties to a competitor. Maybe the producers are just really big Yo Gabba Gabba fans, but given the nature of WandaVision, some fans are wondering if there is some hidden meaning behind it.
“I’m trying to find out how important Yo Gabba Gabba is in #wandavision,” said a tweet with a corresponding GIF.

Yo Gabba Gabba originally ran on Nickelodeon for four seasons between 2007 and 2015. The series, hosted by DJ Lance Rock, featured both live-action and animated segments with five costumed friends: Muno (he’s tall and friendly), Foofa (she’s pink and happy)), Brobee (the little green one), Toodee ( she likes to have fun) and Plex (a magical robot). Together, the group taught the children everything from the importance of sharing to trying new foods.
It remains to be seen if DJ Lance Rock and his furry friends from Yo Gabba Gabba will return to the MCU at some point in the future. There are only a few episodes left on WandaVision, and the surprises will likely be even more shocking from here. New episodes appear on Disney + every Friday.
