Being relatively new to the world of Kindie Rock, I was not familiar with Gustafer Yellowgold until yesterday, and it appears that my daughter and I have some catching up to do. This little guy came to Earth from the Sun and landed in Minnesota. Since 2005, he's been the subject of several multi-media tales, brought to life in hand-drawn music videos from cartoonist/songwriter/performer Morgan Taylor. His fifth DVD/CD package, Gustafer Yellowgold's Year in the Day is set for release on April 3, and after checking out a preview of a song and video called Pancake Smackdown, my daughter's first word was ''More?'' Check out the video below.

In the new DVD/CD combo, we find Gustafer Yellowgold ''experiencing his own, unique take on a year’s worth of Earth holidays, both classic and unusual. Groundhog Day, Pancake Day/Fat Tuesday, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, and many more receive the one-of-a-kind Gustafer blend of blissful pop-music, lyrical poignancy, and cartoon absurdity.''

There's an entire multimedia live show that goes along with with Gustafer, and in true Rock Father fasion, creator Morgan Taylor hits the road with his wife (singer/songwriter Rachel Loshak) and his two boys, Harvey and Ridley. Curious where to catch them on tour this spring? Dates below:
