As he's bounced around from Canada, United States and China, it's hard to track down Metta World Peace's whereabouts.

Thanks to his always active Twitter account, though, the eccentric Lakers forward keeps the public well informed. According to one tweet Wednesday, World Peace and his 8-year-old daughter, Diamond, will appear on Nick TV's "Yo Gabba Gabba" on Sunday at 8:30 p.m.

It's unclear what their exact role entails, but based on the photo above and the video below, it's safe to safe to say World Peace will act his normal goofy self. Unlike his appearances on Jimmy Kimmel, though, World Peace probably will be fully dressed. After all, this is a show targeted for kids.

On a somewhat related note, reports that World Peace will appear on a spoof called "Real Vampire Housewives" are false, according to a person close to the Lakers forward who wasn't authorized to speak publicly.
