    LazyTown Curiosities

    I'm not sure what else to call it, but scattered across many of the episodes of the TV show are references in some form to the original stage plays. It's always really amusing to spot them, and here's one I just noticed now:

    Stina's robe from "Glanni Gl?pur ? Latab?"


    One of Robbie's extra disguises


    Not the best screen shots, but it's just to make a point.

    So! What jokes/references have the rest of you spotted? I know of a few more XD

    LazyTown Curiosities

    In the first episode, the card stephanie is stacking say laterbea (yeah, I know I spelled it wrong, big whoop)
    In crystal caper, Robbie Rotten offers coins from every country "including iceland"
    Sportacus hails from "an island in the north"
    There are also a lot of musical references to movies, such as when Stephanie is dangling from the rope in "new superhero" (mission impossibleish) and the rockey theme in "hero for a day"

    Also, robbies greatest misses, Robbie clicks his hooves together and says "sportacus, come out and playay", a reference to "The Warriors"

    In The laziest town, the music when Bessie runs for the last phone and it goes all slow-motion and blurry, the music sounds like Chariots of Fire. You've heard it, it's so famous as a 'victorious' piece of music that using it has become cheesy.

    And obviously the 'I'm sportacus!' 'no, I'm sportacus!' bit.

    Also on the subject of puppets, in Pixel TV, 'where do we get the puppets?' XD

    Yeah, I think the puppet show in pixel tv was kind of poking fun at other children's shows, I actually found it quite accurate.

    In Sportacus Who, Robbie 'informs' Sportacus that the 'kids' call him names behind his back, such as "the blue elf". Sportacus is particularly offended by this name.

    (I believe Iprottalfur (I can never spell that) was an elf in earlier incarnations of Latibaer?)
    I seriously need a new sig. Will try Photoshop later.

    Sadly the german translation is "blue idiot". :/
    It makes more sense with elf. <.<

    Oooh, I didn't know about that one. Now I need to go rewatch that to see...

    Also in Double Trouble, the mayor is stuck outside of town wearing a rabbit suit while Robbie takes over as the mayor, just like the stage play. Although I don't know why he dresses up in a bunny outfit in the play... but still very silly XD

    And I forget which episodes it's been played in, but in a few you can hear Ziggy's theme from the first play as instrumental in the background. They totally need to transfer the full thing to the show. I like that song...

    I think they play Ziggy's sad theme in Hero For A Day and Ziggy's Alien.

    LazyTown Curiosities

    This has been bothering me for a while now.

    How old are the puppets supposed to be?

    We know Ziggy's the youngest, because everyone was teasing him about it in Ziggy's Alien.
    I reckon Stingy's around the same age as Stephanie, because (apart from Ziggy) he's the one she hangs around with most.
    I'd say Pixel was a bit older, because he doesn't play with them that much, he's more into video games etc. (and he's the tallest).
    I can't place Trixie, though.

    Any thoughts?

    I think the ages were mentioned on one of the incarnations of the lazytown.biz website...

    Ziggy-6
    Stingy-7
    Trixie-8
    Pixel-9

    I had a look on lazytown.biz, lazytown.com, go-go-lazytown.com and another one I can't remember before I asked and couldn't find anything.

    So, that would mean Trixie & Stephanie are the same age, but Steph hangs around with Ziggy & Stingy a lot more than Trixie. Hmmm...

    I think Stephanie has a thing for younger guys.

    ^Maybe so, maybe so....I always liked Stephanie/Pixel though.

    This version of lazytown.biz (then lazytown.com) from 2004 has the ages I mentioned.

    I don't trust the archived version of the official websites, older versions mention Bessie being Sportacus' mom and they state that Sportacus is always struggling with the temptation to eat junk food and give in to lazy ways.

    ^True, but I think the ages are reasonable. Maybe they can't be official canon, but they sound likely.

    Although Bessie being Sporty's mom would be kinda neat in a weird way. Maybe that would make an interesting fanfic...

    I don't recall Ziggy giving particular mention to "Choco-Sugar-Yummies" either.

    Or is that just something that was dropped with the UK dub?

    Oh, so THAT'S where the "Bessie is Sportacus' mom" thing came from.

    http://www.internationalhero.co.uk/s/sportacus.htm

    This bio is full of bizarre misinformation and it always bugged me. "Where the hell is this guy getting this stuff?"

    I'm actually working that into a fanfic I'm writing, except Bessie was 15 when she had him, and he was adopted by Nine and his wife, hence the lack of family-ness between them (neither of them know, and poor Bessie is in for a bit of a shock). His (rarely used) given name is Alex, which at this point only Steph and Robbie out of the canon characters know, but his legal family name is Sportacus.

    ^Oh, I've seen your fanfics at FFN! I like your whole idea of Sportacus being a female originally. Awesome stuff, can't wait to see more!

    Seconded, and now I'm interested in actually reading it.

    ^Now that is weird. Shelby Young Stephanie, and Sportacus has a ghetto crystal. The logo's interesting, but I like the current one better.
