New interview: Yo Gabba Gabba! cocreator Christian Jacobs
Thu Oct 15
You would think that as a father of four, Christian Jacobs would want to leave juvenile antics at home when he heads to work. Not so. This kidult--who regularly skateboards around the set--feeds off kids' creative energy and fuses it with his love for music and pop culture to create Yo Gabba Gabba! Jacobs chatted with us about his inspiration, his family, his critics and all the celebs who want in on the Nick Jr. action.
Ronald McDonald House turns 35
Thu Oct 15
Back in 1974, the first of these charitable houses opened in Philadelphia with a mission to provide comfortable shelter for parents and their ill children, as they traveled to distant cities for treatments, surgeries and consultations. Today, the organization continues to provide care and support to families in need, and now operates almost 300 houses all over the world. We're happy to celebrate the birthday of such an important charity, and hope that it continues to grow for the next 35 years.
