Sid the Science Kid Gets His Own Feature Film!

Sid the Science Kid
Lisa Henson, CEO of the Jim Henson Company, and Al F. Barry, Chairman of Nine Eyes Stone & Shanghai Animation Film Studios in China, have signed an agreement to co-produce Sid the Science Kid: The Movie, a full length feature film based on the popular TV Series.

The movie begins when Sid and a classmate, Gabriela, enter a science experiment contest. When they win, they get the chance to make a visit to a new museum that hasn’t yet opened to the public. While at the museum they meet an unusual scientist who designs robot tour guides. They also get the chance to make friends with some kids from China who also won the same prize. You can’t have a movie without a challenge to overcome, and this one doesn’t disappoint. The robot scientist of course loses control of one of his creations. Thankfully, Sid and friends know just what to do!

The movie appears to have great potential as the scientist is voiced by none other than Christopher Lloyd, who played the quirky scientist in the Back to the Future movies. The Jim Henson company veteran Bradley Zweig wrote the script, so no there’s no lack of talent for this brand new film.

Kickin’ it Yo Gabba Gabba Style

Yo Gabba Gabba is a unique show in and of itself. It has great appeal to a multitude of people and spans many culture, languages, and barriers.  But what makes this show so amazingly popular?  Is it the live action puppets? Or the indie rock music? Or those cool 8 bit looking graphics? It’s a combination of all of these things and more.

The Yo Gabba Gabba Live Show toured 55 cities and performed 130 shows in 2011.  Not bad for a show that’s already in its fourth season.  Usually it takes at least 20 years for a brand to catch on to all age groups.  Not only has this show caught the attention of preschoolers, toddlers, and adults alike, but it’s caught the attention of 20 and 30 somethings.

The show also has many retro elements in it, making it look like a show from the 70s. Retro is back in style and so is Steve Urkel.  This day and age it’s cool to wear just about anything, especially if it’s mismatched.  Perhaps that’s why adults and hipsters everywhere are embracing their inner child and rockin’ the Yo Gabba Gabba shirts.  Click on the link and then select “adult” under the “clothing” tab. We also have styles for your little tike too.  You can even put their name on it.

Rock on!
