    Jodi Eichelberger's Interview

    Well, I sent the questions off about 2 nights ago. And I sent LOADS, so Jodi is answering in installments.

    "Hi,


    Wow, that's a lot of questions. I may have to do this in a few installments. Let's see how far I get. I'll answer within the text below.

    Questions from the LJ LazyTown Community and various other forums

    1. Can I marry Stingy? (asked by me, Racoon and Ultra Magnus)
    Well, that's really a question for Stingy so I'll ask him.

    Me: Hey, Stingy!

    $tingy: Yes?

    Me: There are some people who want to know if they can marry you.

    Stingy: You mean they would like to say to me "Will you be mine?"

    Me: Yes, that's the idea.

    Stingy: That's impossible!

    Me: Why?

    Stingy: Because I can never belong to somebody else! But they could belong to me....

    Hmm. So there you have it.

    2. What is Magnus like, and is he a good boss? (lots of people)

    I just had brunch with Magnus this last Sunday. I saw him out the window snapping the cover on his red convertible MG. He wears a driving suit with a scarf and some goggles. It's hard to tell where Magnus ends and Sportacus begins. He's a big personality on set and off. He demands the best from everyone and pushes me to my limit. The only person he expects more from than the people he's working with is himself.

    3. Are you friends with his wife? (mizz_pink)

    I've danced with her a couple of times but she's much more involved in the business side of things, so I don't spend that much time with her. We see each other at lunch now and then.

    4. Do Sportacus and Stephanie end up as a couple? (lots of people)

    I had my viking Tarot cards read at the base of Snaefellsness, which is supposed to be a very mystical place, but they said nothing about this!

    5. If yes, how? (beticaforever)

    Yes, how?!

    6. Can you tell us anything about the movie being made in the future? (lots of people)

    The tarot cards didn't say much about this either.

    7. Are you aware of the extent of the online fanbase the show has? (Ultra Magnus and me)

    I have seen livejournal before and a few things on YouTube. One of the other puppeteers has a google alert set up so that he is notified whenever something new comes online about LazyTown but I'm not quite that wired into it. I think it's great and I love the creativity that people express.

    8. If so, how aware? (Ultra Magnus)

    9. What do you think it is about the show stand out so much and garner this reaction from this many people (of all ages)? (Ultra Magnus)

    The show doesn't preach and it doesn't try too hard to make sense. I think this has something to do with why it's popular across a lot of age groups. You can approach it on a lot of different levels. It doesn't just shout words at you for 22 minutes.

    10. Can I marry Stephanie? (yhpets)

    You guys are obsessed with marriage. In general, I don't think television characters make very good life partners. You could ask Stephanie's father for permission..... if you can find him.

    11. What's the best thing about working on LazyTown? (Sportasentai and me)

    Working in Iceland is a huge plus. I live in New York and so it's amazing to go to a place that is so clean and surrounded by mountains and wide open spaces. Another great thing about working on LazyTown is how everyone is welcome to share ideas. We can even improvise a lot of our lines and they often get included in the final edit. That doesn't happen on a lot of shows and I think it gives the show a sense of life that many shows are missing.

    12. What do you think of the other cast/crew members? Are they as nice as they seem to be? (Sportasentai)

    The cast and crew is amazing! They've become like a second family to me. We've been working on this show now for 4 years and a lot of the same people have been there from the very beginning.

    13. How is production going? Are there a lot of new, exciting things to look forward to? (Sportasentai)

    Yes, the current production is a very different format so I think it allows for you to get to know the characters a lot better.

    14. Are you aware of how LazyTown has literally almost DISAPPEARED in the United States? (Lack of store merchandise, not many episodes airing, etc.) If so, are there plans to do something about it? (It would really benefit more of today's kids in the US if it was promoted more, like it used to be.) (Sportasentai)

    Being american, I am very aware of the state of LazyTown in the US. Fortunately, the show is such a huge success in other parts of the world and that has kept it going. The company hasn't given up on the US so hopefully we can look forward to some new exposure in the future. Sometimes it seems like America has to see that someone else thinks a show is cool before we adopt it. Look how much of our television has come from the UK for instance: The Office, Idol, Who wants to be a millionaire....ect....

    That's it for now... I'll see if I can come back to more another day.

    Excellent stuff.
    I didn't realise you were going to send him/them every single question we asked, though.

    Actually, thinking about it, we have something good out of this, Racoon and Ultra Magnus... we're three people who can officially claim to be officially owned by Stingy!

    Some of those questions were pretty retarded, no offense but asking about them getting together and the married business was pretty stupid.

    Other than that, good job.

    Awesome work! It was fun reading all that.

    True about things outside the US getting famous before getting to the US. Like this New Zealand show called, "Outrageous Fortune" is so famous there is a carnation of it in the UK and in the US.

    *Thanks to Ultra Magnus for Nindanjoe.

    oh jeeze...*facepalm* you asked that? you actually asked THAT??? no offense to you personally. i mean i know people told you to ask, and you were just trying to please them. but COME ON! you might as well have asked if Sportacus and Robbie were gay and Stephanie was their gay-adopted daughter. it makes about as much sense.

    seriously, that was inappropriate to ask for all sorts of reasons. i'm actually embarassed that you asked that, and i had nothing to do with it. you know, if someone asked Magnus he would laugh and be like "WTF?" but it was just stupid to ask this guy... he is the puppeteer for Stingy! that question had nothing to do with him. how could he possibly have an answer for that? at least he tried to make a joke out of it. but i'm sure he thought that was creepy and weird as hell though.

    and if anyone tries to point out how i fag the show up... i'm aware of that. but honestly as far as i'm concerned there are no real couples on LazyTown. even Milford and Bessie aren't together. every character is asexual. ok? ok.

    and for future reference (on the slim chance that anyone who works on LazyTown ever does a fan interview thing again): you don't ask people who work on a show if the pretend couples in your head are going to get married and make babies. that is no good! you're doing it wrong if you do that. srsly.
