    Re: Robbie's Soft Side?

    I agree. And I think Stefan said it pretty well about Robbie. "He's the guy that wants to be a criminal but could never pull it off."

    Re: Robbie's Soft Side?

    I think if Robbie ever succeeded, he'd realize very quickly how much he missed Sportadork and the crazy kids. They're like a dysfunctional family, maybe.
    I seriously need a new sig. Will try Photoshop later.

    Re: Robbie's Soft Side?

    I agree with that. He'd very quickly realize how much he missed them. It's like the Christmas album when he was staring at them. He realized how much he wanted to join in. I always cry when I hear the Robbie's Alone song.

    I know! Stefan knows Robbie better than all of us. So, it would only make sense he can sum Robbie up in a sentence.

    That's probably one of my very favorite Robbie moments! xD I love his little "No! No! It's too late! It's too late now! *pouts*" He's freakin' adorable when he's all pouty like that.

    Re: Robbie's Soft Side?

    Haha yea, that really made me laugh! Him acting all childish and stuff

    I really like the comments, faces, and sound effects he makes when he's spying on the children through that thing of his, in his lair.

    *Robbie spying*

    Sportacus: Eat lots and lots of Sportscandy! ^^

    Robbie: *repeats in disgust* Eat lots and lots of Sportscandy! *makes a throwing up face followed by a burp sound* lol XD

    I just love his comments to the things he sees. It always amuses me. And when he's caught, his little 'trying to get out of trouble with being cute' expressions.

    Re: Robbie's Soft Side?

    The latest episode within season/series 3 (with the Beach setting as part of it) really showed Robbie's softer, more vulnerable side, but if I were to rewind to seasons one and two, I'd say this sort of thing with him wanting interaction was visible even then, if to a smaller degree. It's what makes him less of a dangerous villain and more of a realistic, flawed and yes, pretty clumsy one (in execution, fictionally speaking mind you). He's more than a two dimensional guy tweaking his curlicue mustache cackling maniacally as folks are about to meet their doom. I don't recall Wile-e-Coyote ever showing remorse over his actions against Roadrunner, which is probably what sets him apart in my mind from Robbie. I'm seeing a guy who wants to have quiet time and activities...he just has a hard time expressing and achieving it (And that's okay! It makes the show interesting.).

    Re: Robbie's Soft Side?

    Think about how much different of a character Robbie Rotten was back in the theater days of Lazytown, when Sportacus' costume wasn't even blue. Back there he was a proper villain, funny of course and entertaining for the kids but still a villain in flamboyant clothes that made him look as if he had escaped from a noir movie of sorts. This Robbie for me doesn't exist anymore for a reason. He is not a villain and it is proven due to the fact that he doesn't wish to harm anyone actually (all under the influence of Magnus' idea of how the ideal hero should act, being kind and friendly even to everyone unconditionally). Even the times he gives sugar to Sportacus, he doesn't overdo it. There could have been more ways to send Sportacus or anyone for that matter away in a more dark and sinister matter, something that could have passed the mind of the first Robbie. He doesn't do that, not only because it's a children's show, but also because this Robbie is not meant to be mean.
    This is very obvious on the second episode of the third season where he shows he is awkward around concepts he's probably not much familiar with and yet he wishes to participate in their fun. And he's not in denial about it, he's genuinely having fun with everyone, no plans attached. Key point for me is that when Sportacus confronts Stingy, he mentions Robbie taking part in the games. I am thinking this was Sportacus' plan all along, from the very first time he actually started inviting Robbie to play/accepting his challenges. He treated Robbie equally and patiently let him warm up to the idea of having friends and sharing etc etc.
    Ah I ramble too much, sorry. ^^'

    I love that Robbie is soft, but I'd also love to see a dark side to him.

    Hats off to whoever wrote the teleplay for this episode.
    Everybody needs a little time to play around. Have to heat it up, better burn it up. Cool it down.

    Re: Robbie's Soft Side?

    I hardly see any movies and the picture doesn't remind me of any, but I do watch southpark and I think there is a resemblance of Robbie and the southpark devil

    I have noticed that Robbie can be nice at times. I feel he is a nice person but puts on an evil mask to make himself appear undefeatable to others - maybe giving him that extra power to survive.

    Re: Robbie's Soft Side?

    It's true. According to the trivia section of this article: http://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Robbie_Rotten

    During a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) Stefan Karl revealed that Robbie wishes he could be friends with the kids of LazyTown although it will never happen.

    Kinda sad to think about. Poor Robbie just wants to be accepted.
