    LazyTown in the US gone for good?

    Note: this is about the USA

    First Nick Jr. dropped LazyTown right when I learned it was still on TV. Now it seems as of 2008, Noggin doesn't show it anymore! Since there's no more LazyTown on TV, time to buy all the DVD's! Yay...*finds way to make extra cash fast and legally*

    Please tell me there's some other source to view LazyTown. >_<

    Re: LazyTown in the US gone for good?

    I thought I saw it in an afternoon timeslot somewhere too?

    Basically the short of it is the USA's television system sucks ass. Viacom's logic is that they shouldn't air LazyTown because it's a licensed import that they have to pay extra for rather than an in-house advertising machine like the rest of their programming.

    It's not that they don't have an audience. There are plenty of LazyTown fans out here in the USA in its intended demographic, even now when the show hasn't had a regular timeslot for over a year. There was a live LT stage show at a theme park in my area a few months ago (that wasn't really advertised), and over 2000 people attended. And that's just in the greater Philadelphia region. Viacom's just choosing to ignore their audience in favor of the money they can make from Dora.

    The only chance LazyTown really has in the USA is if they can somehow end their contract with Viacom and go somewhere else.
    I seriously need a new sig. Will try Photoshop later.

    The U.S./Region 1 DVDs were all discontinued, back in August or September I think. Good luck finding them all. I still haven't been able to find Surprise Santa.
    I'll probably buy all the UK ones. Aside from that, Netflicks has all the US DVD's.

    Re: LazyTown in the US gone for good?

    :wtc: Ok...it seems LazyTown is back up. I've been using this site as a source for what episodes are playing (http://television.aol.com/show/lazytown/73366/upcoming) and LazyTown was deleted from the database when I first made this post. W00t, no more bitching about no more LazyTown! In fact, they have more play times listed!

    Re: LazyTown in the US gone for good?

    So it's not completely gone But there's still the issue of extremely limited exposure, plus Noggin never premieres episodes or airs the newer ones, so it looks like we'll never see Energy Book, Birthday Surprise, Lazytown Goes Digital, Lazy Rockets, The Lazy Genie, Once Upon A Time, Dancing Dream, or Sportacus Saves The Toys.

    Re: LazyTown in the US gone for good?

    I would love to take action, write petitions, storm nickjr, send them thousands of piles of sports candy demanding the series back on the air, but I doubt it will do any good....

    I just wish they would at least give somekind of press release or an answer to this all on the official site or something...

    LazyTown is on Noggin twice a day now. The newest episode I've seen listed so far is PixelsPix though.

    That is true but Noggin only shows the first half of the first season and 1 episode from the second season.

    Re: LazyTown in the US gone for good?

    Some of my DVDs got scratched up during my move. I thought I'd buy some new ones, but daaaaaaaaamn that's expensive.
    I guess that's just the result of everything LT seemingly being discontinued here.

    Re: LazyTown in the US gone for good?

    I don't know where to put the info but this seem to be a right topic (and after page 8 I stopped searching because it got worse and worse.. )
    This news is already about three weeks old, things are moving forward and I don't know if it's a good thing or not. LazyTown is sold to the TBS company, an official announcement will come later, probably in the same business newspaper. I heard that Mágnus was asked for explanation by one of the people from the newspaper but didn't say anything yet about it. This is the press release from juli 21, 2011

    http://www.grapevine.is/News/ReadArticl ... y-Lazytown

    American Company Might Buy Lazytown - 21.7.2011
    An American broadcast company is offering to buy up Latibær, known to many outside of Iceland as Lazytown.

    The show, which has proven itself to be remarkably successful, syndicated by television networks all over the world, is shown in the US as part of the Nickelodeon children's television network. Nickelodeon is owned by Viacom which, among many other assets, also owns MTV.

    RÚV now reports that Turner Broadcasting System - which runs, among other networks, CNN, TNT and Cartoon Network - has offered to buy up all shares of Lazytown.

    TBS is asking to pay 12 million USD. While this may seem a paltry sum for a television show with as much merchandising as Lazytown does, this is actually 20% higher than the company's total worth, the business newspaper Viðskiptablaðið reports.

    One of the conditions for the takeover, sources say, is that Magnús Scheving - Lazytown creator and the actor who plays Sportacus - remain on in his role for at least another three years. These same sources also say that takeover talks will be continuing over the next week, with the expectation that they will end in a deal.

    It ends for me as well

    It's a pity, a big pity...

    Well, we are talking about Warner, the company where Magnús wanted to make the Movie. But it's a pity sell the TV Series too. Well... I saw good TV Series made by Warner, but you know... it's not the same...

    If I could, I would like buy the debt But for it, I need to win the lottery.

    I cautiously support this.
    Glad to hear the talks are nearing a finalization though.
