The folks at The Hub are kicking off 2014 in-style with new episodes of their original series' THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW!, LITTLEST PET SHOP, SABRINA: SECRETS OF A TEENAGE WITCH, and MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC. They've provided The Rock Father with details on all the new episodes, which I'm sharing with you below. All times listed are Eastern, and additional details can be found over at HubWorld.com.
After a short run of Season Two episodes this past summer, THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW! will return to The Hub for the Holiday Season, with the first of three specials, CHRISTMAS WITH THE AQUABATS, set to debut on December 21. News just hit Rock Father HQ this afternoon, and I've got details on all three new Aquabats specials below. Fingers crossed that they bust out their awesome cover of Lindsey Buckingham's "Holiday Road" that I like so much.
With the Emmy-Nominated THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW! making a triumphant return to The Hub for Season Two (airing Saturdays at 1pm ET | 10am PT), THE ROCK FATHER caught up with Drummer RICKY FITNESS and Co-Creator/Executive Producer/Writer/Director JASON deVILLIERS to get the low-down on the Bats' latest and future adventures on the screen (and the stereo!), along with some rock-infused discussion about possible AQUABATS! Action Figures, secret weapons, and hidden rooms within the Battle Tram. And, with Father's Day fast-approaching, these three "Rock Fathers" have to show some love for their kids...
It's been a very long time since I did a "Toddler Jukebox" column here on The Rock Father, but now the time has come to dust it off as a regular feature. When I did the first couple, I had an actual toddler in the house, but with Addie now a preschooler and Finn still an infant, I'm questioning the use of "toddler" in the name. The original concept was that Addie would grab a CD from the archives here at Rock Father HQ and I'd be forced to listen to it as an opportunity to revisit some songs from days long since passed. While I might still have the kids pull random selections on occasion, I'm looking at this as a way to revisit the past through my little ones - some pre-Fatherhood rock explored with a new generation. What better way to start then with an album called AGES 3 AND UP?
It's a video that's been floating around for a couple of years now (33K+ plays on YouTube thus far), but one that deserves to be shared some more. Take two of my favorite bands - THE AQUABATS! and THE ROCK-AFIRE EXPLOSION - and put them together. What happens? Well, if you haven't seen it already, you just need to watch the video below, then... don't you?
The weather here in Northern Illinois is unseasonably warm today. As the temperature neared 70 degrees this afternoon, our family worked to put up the outside Christmas lights while thinking about the road ahead. With the Holiday Season in full-effect, we'll be putting a lot of miles on the car as we catch up with family members that are scattered. Being "The Rock Father," the folks at Kia Motors asked if I had any suggestions for some songs well-suited for a Rockin' Holiday Road Trip Playlist, and I certainly do. Below you'll find ten great seasonal songs (in no particular order) to be played as a part of your Holiday Road Trip Playlist.
