Last year, after living together for 14 years, I learned something disturbing about my wife that had somehow never emerged... She doesn't like Scooby-Doo. This came as a real surprise to me, as I'd been known to wear the occasional Scooby t-shirt over the years, but I guess we'd never really discussed it before. Too bad for my wife, since thanks to Cartoon Network and a certain 36-year-old 3½-year-old (Addie), Scooby-Doo makes frequent appearances here at Rock Father HQ.

My daughters love PAJANIMALS. In fact, they're a part of Addie's nightly bedtime ritual, as we wind down by watching an episode, then follow it with their "La-La-Lullaby" song that we have on the DVR courtesy of Sprout. Now, the Jim Henson Company has announced that the cuddly characters are packing their bags and hitting the road for PAJANIMALS LIVE: PAJAMA PLAYDATE - a new, live musical production set to visit 50 cities in 2013. One of the dates happens to be just 15 minutes from Rock Father HQ, so it looks like we'll be checking this out! Full tour dates and details below...
