The Flaming Lips. Yo Gabba Gabba. Well, Duh.

We've known for awhile now that the Flaming Lips would be appearing on this, the third season, of Yo Gabba Gabba. But one look at a clip from the upcoming episode "Fairytale" shows just how perfect the two are for each other. The Lips re-work "I Can Be a Frog" from their 2009 album Embryonic... and by re-work, I mean, change "I" to "You," and that's about it lyrically, it would appear based on the 1-minute clip Viacom shared. It's also a little sunnier in tone, but the video itself looks like, well, every other Flaming Lips concert clip I've seen. Utter chaos. (But in a good way.) Catch it all when "Fairytale" premieres on Nickelodeon on Friday, Nov. 5th at 11:30 AM.

Oh, and if you want to hear the original...
... the official (pre-YGG) video is a little odd, though I don't think it's inappropriate for kids per se. But you might get some odd questions from the little ones. Or perhaps your spouse.
