A new season of the musical educational show Yo Gabba Gabba! will premier on Apple TV+. Plus, children will soon be able to tune in to Apple’s streaming service to watch previous episodes, which offer music, live-action characters, animation and a very optimistic attitude.

This is part of the growing collection of children’s programming on Apple TV+.

More Yo Gabba Gabba!

The show will be produced by WildBrain, which promises, “The new series will invite Apple TV+ audiences to return to that magical land of endless possibilities and promise, in a new reimagining based on the heart and essence of what Yo Gabba Gabba! is — a fantastic land of optimism and fun, where kids and families are taught life lessons through song and dance that allow them to learn, laugh and heal.”

Expect a return of beloved characters Brobee (the little green one), Foofa (the pink flowerbubble), Muno (the red Cyclops), Toodee (the blue cat-dragon) and Plex (the yellow robot).

When the new episodes will premiere has not been announced. The previous episodes are not yet available in the Apple TV app.

Lots of children’s programming on Apple TV+

This isn’t the first deal Apple made with WildBrain. The two work together on The Snoopy Show. And they’re collaborating on a new collection of Peanuts specials.

The Yo Gabba Gabba! agreement is similar to one that made Apple TV+ the home for Fraggle Rock. That brought classic episodes of the children’s show to the service as well as new ones.

Plus, the streaming service has a collection of other programming for younger viewers. There’s StillwaterDoug Unplugs, and the Emmy-nominated Helpsters and Ghostwriter.
