A Boobah Enters My Life


On the The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week she showed a Dancing Boobah. When she squeezed its hand to make it dance, instead of dancing and playing music—it farted. Caught off-guard Ellen nearly fell out of her chair laughing and said “It did not do that in rehearsal.” TiVo was rewound about 20 time to watch the Boobah fart and see Ellen’s reaction.

So… guess what I got for the holidays—that’s correct—my own pink Dancing Boobah named Jingbah that does indeed–fart. The toy is for 2 years and up–the up would be me. It also plays 11 different songs and dances. I have come to love the reggae dance with a fart in the middle of the song. Intrigued I watched the actual Boobah show on PBS to find out what our 2-year-olds are learning. I was a little freaked out but at the same time I could not stop watching the bright colors and feeling very hypnotized. The Boobah’s did not fart on the TV show nor on the Boobah Zone website but they do fart on the PBS site…enjoy.

    My 2-year-old daughter loves this show. It really creeps me out. I thought Teletubbies were scary, but Boobah takes it to a whole new level. Since it debuted, the number of times that it shows during the week on KLRU have been reduced significantly. We now DVR it whenever it’s on and save them to spring on my daughter when we need 30 minutes of peace.

    The toy sounds hilarious. Anything that farts is funny. It’s too bad your post didn’t happen before Xmas or my daughter would’ve had another new toy. I may have to pick one up anyway.

    i can’t recall where i read this–i’ll post the url if i can dig it up–but the way the characters say ‘booh-bah!’ it was made/designed to be the same musical interval that parents all over the world use when they call their children. take a listen, and you’ll hear it. i’ll try to get back with you on that url within the next few days.
