    Least Favorite Episode

    We all obviously love LazyTown but there is definitely better episodes than others so if you had to pick what is your least favorite episode?
    Mine is probably Play Day.

    Greatest Hits and Robbie's Greatest Misses to start off. I did not see a point to having a flasback episode during season 1 or even 2 of them.

    Re: Least Favorite Episode

    Maybe Ghost Stoppers. Reusing the ghost disguise and I'm not too fond of the song either. Also reusing the "boy who cried wolf" idea on Trixie, when it was already used with Ziggy in the first season. Just kind of a meh episode.

    Re: Least Favorite Episode

    For the first two season I would say Play Day also because too much blah blah, for the last two seasons that would be First Day Of Summer because that is the only episode where I dislike Robbie's behaviour.

    I kinda liked the fact that they made it look like he was losing his mind without everyone there.

    Robbie's Greatest Misses wasn't a a flashback episode though, if I remember, everything in it was fresh material.
    I personally liked some of the clips shows, PixelsPix and Greatest Hits in particular. Greatest Hits was a nice collection of songs in an episode format, and I thought Sportacus chasing after Robbie in the computer was great fun.
    I can't say I particularly liked Sportacus on the Move though. It seemed way too different to the other episodes, and didn't have much substance to it.

    I am sorry. I just skimmed through Robbie's Greatest Misses. You are right it was all original material. My mistake. Though I was not a big fan of PixelsPix It did have some good stuff in it

    While you're entitled to your own oppinion, I still have to disagree with your there Matt..
    Greatest Hits was a true hit for me, for reasons you might already have figured haha. You have a sole episode here, jam packed with 8 entire songs!
    You have Stephanie walking around the town, interacting with every single inhabitant. They all name their own favourite song, which means you get to understand each character even better.

    Now, there are actually a few things I dislike about that episode though.
    First of all, the name of the episode is a bit misguiding. It's called "Greatest Hits", but the songs listed are nowhere near the best LazyTown had to offer for the first season. I can understand this though, as it was more hinted towards the characters favourite songs, but that leads me to the second point;
    The songs does not all correspond to the characters that names them.
    What's up with The Mayor listing "Teamwork", Trixie listing "Spooky Song", and Pixel listing "No one's lazy in LazyTown"???
    I know that The Mayor and Bessie does not have any other song but "Man on a Mission", but the other ones did actually have a choice.

    In an ideal world, the list would've been like this:
    The Mayor - Man on a Mission
    Ziggy - Cooking by The Book
    Trixie - Step by Step
    Pixel - Gizmo Guy
    Stingy - I'm a Prince (Way better than The Mine Song..)
    Sportacus - No one's lazy in LazyTown
    Robbie - Master of DrDresguise (Though You are a Pirate was actually better for the episodes sake. That song is always nice ♥)

    Anyways, I totally get why you think that it's unneccesary to have a "flashback episode" so soon. It did feel like they skipped across the episode too lightly, and if I were to plan it, I would have put it as the very last episode of the season.
    I'm as sneaky as can be. None's sneakier than me.

    You make very good points. And yeah if it was at the end of the season I agree it would be better.

    Mine is Sportacus Who?. I just think having Sportacus forget who he is and do unhealthy things is sad.

    Re: Least Favorite Episode

    I don't think I have any episodes disliked completely. There's just some aspects from some episodes that I don't like, but don't completely change my opinion of the episode in general.

    As much as I dislike this episode, I would say that this being Robbie's favourite song actually does tell us something very significant about him. It supports the theory that Robbie really does like being with the kids, but he can only do it in a disguise, and not as Robbie Rotten. Sad isn't it?

    Also, I have a feeling that the writers asked the actors/puppeteers which song they liked the best rather than thinking of the actual characters.

    Exactly what I was thinking. It implies that Robbie actually has fond memories of singing that song and just fooling around as a pirate with the kids, which is really sweet, especially in the context of Stephanie just having been friendly with him when she wanted to know his favourite song too.

    Your theory might actually hold up, I know Stefįn said his favourite song was You Are a Pirate at least (as late as in 2016). But I always sort of figured they picked the songs they did partly to be representative of the characters and partly just to get a good mix so not every choice ended up being obscure. All the songs in the episode, while not necessarily the best, are catchy, happy and share the LazyTown spirit. Heck even You Are a Pirate, despite being a Robbie song, isn't contradictory to the show's message: "Run and jump all day!"

    To answer the question about my least favourite episode though, definitely Sportacus on the Move. That episode is the only one I can say is just "boring", other ones can be less entertaining but still have good parts, such as Hero for a Day.

    My other theory is that everyone already knows every lazy town song, as if there is a list to choose from; how else does Trixie know Spooky song if she wasn't even in the episode?? There are exceptions of course, one being Ziggy not knowing Twenty Times Time before the episode.

    I know!!! Pixel records everything in LazyTown, right? He probably has cameras everywhere. This is supported by the fact that in this episode he says he has No One's Lazy in LazyTown on his computer and proceeds to start the video. He also has The Mine Song like we saw in PixelsPix. So it's possible that he recorded Spooky Song and uploaded it to PixelsPix which he used to show it to Trixie. Another possibility is that some of the songs are sung in LazyTown on a regular basis, since Cooking by the Book is in two different episodes for example, and maybe Spooky Song was sung in a different context where Trixie was present that we just didn't get to see.

    Lol, all this trouble to try and explain logical inconsistencies and continuity errors in a kid's show. The whole reason they even made the episode was that they were struggling to produce enough content xD

    Probably have to go with ghost stoppers...the song was forgettable and the plot wasn't interesting. I would have to choose Sportacus On the Move for the earlier seasons, I don't think I dislike any of them that aren't flashback episodes

    Re: Least Favorite Episode

    I think season 1 and 2 and season 3 and 4 both deserve attention on their own since they're quite different to one another, really.

    Of season 1 and 2, i'd probably say Play Day is my least favorite. Feels like two short episodes combined into one, and they're not even all that fun. The cowboy part was fine, but the 'wild beasts' part makes me feel many different kinds of embarrasment. It's not great.

    Of season 3 and 4, Baby Troll is far and away the worst episode. The trolls are completely out of place in the series, the random hints towards the past feel super forced, and worst of all, the problem could've literally been solved without Sportacus as Stephanie had the solution in her hands at one point. It's awful.

    Let's Go To The Moon also isn't particularly great, the writers make it seem as if bullying Robbie for no real reason is favorable, therefore going against the actual morals of the show. For the rest it isn't as bad, it just rubs me the wrong way.
