Aquabats: Watch the Original Five Minute Pilot from 1999!

This week's cover story on the Aquabats and their new TV show for the Hub, The Aquabats! Super Show! will debut this weekend on Saturday, 8 a.m.
Now, the Aquabats are no stranger to many OC fans, having been crucial part of the third-wave ska revival of th 1990s. But more than that, the band's frontman Christian Jacobs, aka MC Bat Commander, made a name for himself as co-creator of Yo Gabba Gabba.

His success with Yo Gabba Gabba breathed new life into the idea of an Aquabats TV show--a project that he's wanted to do since the mid-'90s, as this 5-minute pilot, made in 1999, will show. 

Check it out after the jump.
