Here is something that came out of the blue. Before LTD was addicted to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse his love belonged to Yo Gabba Gabba. It was all Yo Gabba all the time, he even watched the episode, New Friends, featuring Jack Black. This first viewing went without incident or notice. However, a little while later he was watching Mr. Black riding his motorcycle through Gabba Land and he just flipped out. Big time. All we heard from the kid was a strong chorus of ‘I don’t like Jack.’ This was followed by tears and screaming. I don’t like Jack. It became the little guy’s mantra. He would say it randomly and unconnected from the TV. I’m talking a severe and mighty reaction that seemingly came out of nowhere. ‘I don’t like Jack.’
On the now few occasions when we play a Yo Gabba Gabba episode, before it starts LTD chimes in the with now familiar refrain. I don’t like Jack. The good news is that I won’t have to sit through Black’s version of Gulliver’s’ Travels anytime soon. I’m just glad we don’t live in LA in case we bumped into Jack at a fancy restaurant where I can only assume we would be dining.
