Co-Creator Of Yo Gabba Gabba, Christian Jacobs Discusses His Background & Influences

Christian Jacobs writes, produces, and directs Yo Gabba Gabba, a series on Nikelodeon that mixes live-action segments, short animated sketches, and musical numbers for kids. The costumes on the show give the appearance of the characters being cartoons or toys. Christian’s background as a child actor, an extra-curricular that left him without much time to hang out with other kids, fostered his passion for toys. As Christian grew-up, he decided he did not want to be an actor, and turned his ambitions towards music with his band, The Aquabats, a group notorious for their cartoonish costumes and larger than life persona.

Watch the video interview HERE as Christian discusses his background, influences and thoughts on taking chances.
