Are your kids ready for KISS? No matter, because Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and company are ready for your kids. Word is out that the timeless rock band is currently developing a half-hour comedy for kids.
Also getting into kids entertainment is the band Devo, which recently whipped up a performance of “Watch Us Work It” for the hit show Yo Gabba Gabba — which itself sounds like a Puff Daddy song. Try to detect it. It’s not too late
With all of this rock-to-tot crossover going on, I’m wondering what other well-known musical acts might see the kids’ space as a way to expand their fan base. A few suggestions:
“Ozzy Does It”
In this game show, Ozzy Osbourne makes various statements aloud; kids compete to see who can make sense of them first.
In this half-hour, half-dressed series, Lady Gaga performs fashion makeovers for kids using only the school supplies and adhesive material found in their lockers.
Pooling their talents, Adam Ant and Adam Lambert visit unsuspecting families in the bible belt to teach makeup tricks to their sons and daughters. (Well, sons mostly.)
“The Bowling Stones”
Mick Jagger and his bandmates look for satisfaction competing against high school bowling teams across America. Tune in to see how many students actually know who The Rolling Stones are, and who’ll score the most Lucky Strikes.
“Graduation Day! with Kanye West”
Kanye West surprises high school graduation ceremonies across America by running onstage during the valedictory speech to show love for the salutatorian.
In this touching documentary series, Puff Daddy talks to young rappers with bronchially-challenged fathers.
“Houston, We Have Problems”
Whitney Houston uses her sound judgment to help kids across America overcome their relationship and addiction issues.
