    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    1. Back in the 2003-2007 days, I used to watch nick Jr. A lot and LazyTown was one of them and years later in 2016
    While listening to memes I discovered a WANO behind the meme video and the thumbnail had a childhood villian looking face
    And the title had a classic name and a classic character name and so I watch the video and I realized it was one of those nick
    Jr. Shows from 2004 and so my interest in LazyTown came back and I been watching LazyTown episodes and memes since

    2. Go Step Go

    3. A. My favorite puppet is Ziggy because he's cute

    B. My favorite puppeteer is David because he does the mayor's voice
    Stepixel, Meansbody, Sportarobbie, and Strixie FOREVER EVER EVEr EVer

    In 2008, I was watching some videos on YouTube, and there was a related video on the one I was watching with a strange looking thumbnail. It was of a blue man and a pink girl who looked like real life cartoon characters. I liked the way that it looked, so naturally, I opened up the video to see what the heck it was. I watched as equally strange looking clips from a thing called LazyTown played over an unrelated song. The video was clearly fan-made, and so I then wanted to see the source of the clips that were used. I came to understand that this LazyTown thing was a television show, and one of the first things that I learned about it was that the show had a ton of original songs. Some of the first LazyTown songs that I listened to were Spooky Song, Cooking By The Book, and You Are A Pirate, and I found that I kind of liked them. I wanted to learn more and more about the show, so I found a torrent online with songs and episodes and started to consume the content. Nine years later, here we are.

    It's ironic that the most commercially successful (sans memes) song is the Time to Dance remix of Bing Bang, since that's one of the only LazyTown songs not produced by Máni Svavarsson. LazyTown songs are way above the bar as far as children's shows go, but very few LazyTown songs could just be placed as-is on a platform like contemporary radio and be successful. But I think with some fixing up, many songs could make the cut. If you take a look at the radio edit of Always A Way performed by Selma Björnsdóttir, it serves as a good example of what LazyTown songs could be with a more contemporary sound in mind. It would be incredible to hear a similar treatment be done with other LazyTown songs. If I was going to peg some songs to be successful after such a treatment, and maybe some lyrical changes, some that come to mind are We Will Be Friends, Ég á mér ósk, and Let's Go To The Moon.

    The Robbie Rotten puppet from Secret Agent Zero for a few reasons.

    1) I have a strange relationship with the puppets that were made under the Wit Puppets name. It's like an "It's-so-ugly-yet-I-can't-look-away" type of thing. I'm attracted and repulsed at the same time. So given that this is one of those puppets, I have a complicated affinity for it.

    2) One of the things that has kept me interested in LazyTown for so long is the depth that the product has. I started down the rabbit hole nine years ago, and because LazyTown has existed for so long and in so many forms, I have yet to explore it all. But as I keep digging, I am able to link more and more things from LazyTown's past and present together, creating a fuller understanding of the whole. This is something that I find rewarding and at times amusing. This puppet contributes to that in a special way that the others cannot, because when it is used in the show, I am able to realize the history that the puppet has, which brings a whole new appreciation to its presence.

    3) The brief scenes that the puppet is in are really funny!

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    1.. As a fan how did you first get interested in Lazytown?

    Well... I wasn't a fan when I was little as I thought it was lazy, I only watched it one time on YTV and that episode was Sportacus Who...

    The We are Number One memes made me in it, as I was searching Miiverse one day and people were posting all about that meme. Then, I found out LazyTown was active, and not lazy.

    I hate my childhood xD

    2.. Bing bang was the obvious hit song from the show.. What other song do you think should be a hit?

    While No one's Lazy in LazyTown, You are a Pirate, Cooking by the Book, The Mine Song and other songs are popular, I think that the LazyTown song "Let's Go" is underrated. It was in the Christmas-themed episode Sportacus saves the Toys, but it isn't about Christmas. It's about "You can do anything" and moving around.

    I wish more people would watch the official video on YouTube and edit some more. It's at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18CuW5pA10k.

    Also, same with Go Step Go.

    3... This is a two-part question:

    A.. What is your favorite puppet from the show and why?
    B... Who is your favorite puppeteer from Lazytown and why?


    1, All of them! (except for Bessie) cause why not!
    2. For puppeteer, same as LAJMS123's answer.
    Enjoy!

    EDIT: I just watched Sportacus Saves the Toys yesterday, and it's not Christmas related.

    XD

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    1. I'd seen Lazytown on TV as a child, but didn't pay much attention as I was growing out of kids shows, but I did understand the general premise. I'm from Australia and wikipedia says Lazytown only started airing here in 2008, when I was 12. Then last year the all the word replacement memes came along. More specifically, "We are number one but every one is replaced with a song from Lazytown". On a whim I decided to click on it and loved most of the songs. Then naturally I started watching all the episodes, and enjoyed a lot of them.

    2. If it was the 60s, The World goes round and round. But in all seriousness, Dancing on the moon could become popular. You could blast it in a nightclub and nobody would have any idea where it came from.

    3. Stingy is my favourite. He is the funniest of them all and gets great one liners, my favourite being when he says "She's (Bessie's) got more stuff than me" in the First day of Summer. Favourite puppeteer, well I'm not too knowledgable on all the puppeteers, so I'll have to go with Stingy's puppeteer, just because it's Stingy.

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    1. As a fan how did you first get interested in Lazytown?

    Back in 2010, a former colleague of mine was discussing kid shows his young son watched excessively (and that he secretly enjoyed), including Yo Gabba Gabba, Backyardigans and LazyTown. I'd heard of LazyTown before this, but had never watched an episode or knew the basic concept of the show until he explained it to me (in much detail). Soon after, he sent me a Youtube link to the Cooking By The Book L'il Bigger Mix mashup, which I thought was both hilarious and cringeworthy. But, this piqued my interest in finding out more about this weird puppet television show for kids. Luckily, I caught several episodes on Nick Jr and found myself thoroughly enjoying this strange live action cartoon with puppets, especially the energetic nature of the show, the show's production values, the music, and of course, Stefán Karl's performance as Wile E. Coyote aka Robbie Rotten. Then, I started looking for more LT content online and the rest is history, as they say...

    2. Bing Bang was the obvious hit song from the show.. What other song do you think should be a hit?

    If you are asking which LazyTown songs could be commercially viable today, that's hard to say. As Chris has pointed out, some songs could be re-worked for contemporary listening with changes to the lyrics, arrangements, genres and he gave some good examples.
    Other suggestions: Life Can Be A Surprise, Friends, Friends For Life, All Together.

    Some of the remixes by LazyPooky and others get the thumbs up in my energy book. In particular, the reggae dub version of Galaxy by Dub Dragoon is fantastic and can be enjoyed by anywho anywhere.

    3.A. What is your favorite puppet from the show and why?

    Pixel. I have a slight affinity towards him because his demeanor reminds me of myself in my youth.

    3.B. Who is your favorite puppeteer from Lazytown and why?

    Ronald Binion. The puppetmaster behind my favorite LT puppet... 'nuff said.

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    1.. As a fan how did you first get interested in Lazytown?
    Looking for reruns of Blue's Clues actually. I knew what LazyTown was but thought it was strange. Still do. The show's songs were soothing enough to sit through a perceived juvenile program. Believe it was Teamwork the music video provoking a response; well enough to poke around online. I remember feeling indignant at what I found. That was the motivation.

    2.. Bing bang was the obvious hit song from the show.. What other song do you think should be a hit?
    Go For It. Because that song is still stuck in my head from the first time I heard it. Particularly the chorus part where it goes "come on and follow me". Suppose a hit would have to be catchy. Though I do not give value to what song is considered a hit. It's up to the individual whatever song they like.

    3... This is a two-part question:

    A.. What is your favorite puppet from the show and why?

    Trixie because it's the only one that looks normal. It is an aesthetically pleasing creation.

    B... Who is your favorite puppeteer from Lazytown and why?
    Gummi Thor. I never imagine Ziggy even has a puppeteer. So he's obviously doing a good job.
    Everybody needs a little time to play around. Have to heat it up, better burn it up. Cool it down.

    Awesome with some cringe, but most teens are Sportarobbie fans.... (and I'm not one xD)

    5. What does the concept of “Lazytown” mean to you?

    LazyTown... means.... having a healthy lifestyle, playing sports and memes, in my opinion.

    6. Have you ever met or spoken to any of the cast or crew from Lazytown… if So, can you briefly describe your experience?

    Unfortunately, I haven't yet since I'm 13. I want to meet Magnus someday...

    7. For those who didn’t get to meet anyone from Lazytown...If you ever get to meet one of the Lazytown cast members, what kind of souvenir would you like to take home with you?

    Maybe some unused or never-before-seen LazyTown content to share it for the world xD

    It's true, the questions are hard to answer.

    The fanbase is struggling, which is not surprising since LazyTown isn't producing. I know that GetLazy is not the end-all-be-all of LazyTown fans, but I think that it's fair to use it as a microcosm, and many of the active members are the same old people that have been around for years. We've all been making attempts at filling the void with fanmade content, but it's never going to bring the same attention as if LazyTown went into any kind of production again. I'm happy that the recent meme fad surrounding LazyTown gave it some exposure, but the fact is that most of these people are either only in it for the dank memes, or their fascination with LazyTown is fleeting and shallow. I guess only time will tell how much this exposure will actually affect the fanbase. I'm in it for the long haul, but if LazyTown truly is over and no more content is produced, the fanbase will be doomed to forever shrink. C'est la vie.

    To me, LazyTown is about fun and silly characters who live in a fantastical world first, and healthiness second. LazyTown has a special focus on physical health via Sportacus, but children's shows promoting "health," whether it be physical healthiness, mental healthiness, social healthiness, moral healthiness, are nothing new or special. Almost all of them do in varying degrees of obviousness. What defines LazyTown is the world that it exists in and the characters that inhabit that world.

    Yes, I visited the studio in 2014 and met a lot of them and have also interviewed some about LazyTown as well!

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    4. How would you describe the people in the fanbase for Lazytown these days?
    Young. We're finally starting to see people who watched LazyTown as children join the ranks. It's exciting. They are bringing new perspectives and a level of enthusiasm that I was not expecting.

    5. What does the concept of “Lazytown” mean to you?
    I associate LazyTown with a specific feeling. When you are swimming on a hot summer day, it is there. Or when you are finishing some worthwhile endeavor. I can only describe it as the intense cognizance of being alive. This is what the LazyTown concept means to me. Living life, playing games, making stuff, taking risks, being loud.

    6. Have you ever met or spoken to any of the cast or crew from Lazytown… if So, can you briefly describe your experience?
    No. I did receive an online message one time from Mark Valenti, the head writer of LazyTown. He asked me to remove public Facebook images I posted on the fan forums. We didn't find out until later that he was Noah Zachary. Still wouldn't do it, but I would have thanked him for writing my favorite shows.

    7. For those who didn’t get to meet anyone from Lazytown...If you ever get to meet one of the Lazytown cast members, what kind of souvenir would you like to take home with you?
    I guess a photograph of Julianna Mauriello and myself would be cool to have. Or maybe just a conversation with her or something that I could keep as a memory.

    8. What's your favorite Lazytown instrumental song?
    I don't have one. The LazyTown songs are great, only the electronic style of music is just not my taste. So I'm not listening to LazyTown instrumentals, except during a montage or the credits.
    Everybody needs a little time to play around. Have to heat it up, better burn it up. Cool it down.

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    1.. As a fan how did you first get interested in Lazytown?

    Well, I wanted to do "research" on what episode The Mine Song was from, so I watched it. (I watched Pixelspix -_-) Then, I watched the stage plays, and it went on from there.

    2.. Bing bang was the obvious hit song from the show.. What other song do you think should be a hit?

    Easy, Woof Woof Woof. I find it way too underrated.

    3... This is a two-part question:

    A.. What is your favorite puppet from the show and why?

    Stingy because he's such a savage.

    B... Who is your favorite puppeteer from Lazytown and why?

    Gotta be either Gumi or Jodi.

    4. How would you describe the people in the fanbase for Lazytown these days?

    Like all fanbases, some parts are awful. But it has a lot of good parts to it.

    5. What does the concept of “Lazytown” mean to you?

    Healthiness!

    6. Have you ever met or spoken to any of the cast or crew from Lazytown… if So, can you briefly describe your experience?

    No, sadly.

    7. For those who didn’t get to meet anyone from Lazytown...If you ever get to meet one of the Lazytown cast members, what kind of souvenir would you like to take home with you?

    A picture with all the cast.

    8. What's your favorite Lazytown instrumental song?

    This one's tough. I have to pick four.

    4. Go Step Go

    3. New Games Everyday

    2. Master of Disguise

    1. Take it to the Top

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    4. How would you describe the people in the fanbase for Lazytown these days?

    A friendly lot for the most part. As with most fandom, there's always the good, the bad, and the ugly "otaku." I'm sure LT fandom is no exception.

    5. What does the concept of “Lazytown” mean to you?

    The usual suspects: Promoting a healthy lifestyle, fitness, positive thinking, friendship, community spirit and teamwork, etc.

    6. Have you ever met or spoken to any of the cast or crew from Lazytown… if So, can you briefly describe your experience?

    Nope.

    7. For those who didn’t get to meet anyone from Lazytown...If you ever get to meet one of the Lazytown cast members, what kind of souvenir would you like to take home with you?

    Heh. Hey Maggi, can I have this awesome photo of Stephers?

    8. What's your favorite Lazytown instrumental song?

    I don't have one favorite, per se. Some favorites include Man on a Mission, Twenty Times Time, Teamwork, New Games Everyday, Playing on the Playground, Time to Play, Snow Give Me Snow, No One's Lazy in Lazytown (2007), We Are Number One, just to to name a few.

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    I must apologize but I forgot to answer the last lot of questions as well.

    4. How would you describe the people in the fanbase for Lazytown these days?
    I would say that these people are a group who are motivated to stick by a "dead" show, by that I mean a show that isn't coming back. Because, it isn't coming back, Magnus himself has told us that
    5. What does the concept of “LazyTown” mean to you?
    LazyTown is a wonderful land that I could ask to for 3-4 years of my childhood life and now I'm reliving the magic again!

    6. Have you ever met or spoken to any of the cast or crew from Lazytown… if So, can you briefly describe your experience?
    I've never met one in person (unless you count fake, pay-your-money-for-a-picure ones) but I have SPOKEN to Mani, Tina (Chloe's mom), Chloe and Magnus.

    Mani: Mani is a great guy who's a lot of fun to talk to and he has such an interesting life.
    Tina and Chloe: Both are motivated to talk to LazyTown fans and want to help me with my work.
    Magnus: The man himself. Here we go, hold on tight, because I may be the only member of GetLazy, who is in frequent contact with Magnus.
    Magnus is a genius! There's absolutely no way to deny it. He was on a mission and he didn't stop at nothing to complete that mission to perfection. He is a pleasure to talk to and I really hope that I can fly out to Iceland to meet him, one day....

    8. What's your favorite Lazytown instrumental song?
    No One's Lazy in LazyTown

    9. What are your favorite seasons?
    1. Because it was my childhood and that is LazyTown to me.


    10. What are your least favorite seasons?
    The end of Season 2, because Julianna didn't give it her all. Magnus seemed depressed that the show was ending and the plot-lines were "over-zonked".

    11. Ok, here’s the ‘Why’ questions...What are your favorite episodes from the seasons and why?
    Sportafake because it is funny and it shows that Robbie could be a superhero, too. It has a lot of good values and the episodes of LazyTown that are 1. Simplistic storylines: A small village and its inhabitants, I find a lot more interesting than the number of genies and knights they managed to zonk in. 2. Good values: Because let's face it that's what LazyTown is really about. 3. Directed by Magnus: The genius himself, need I say anymore?

    12. What are your least favorite episodes from the seasons and why?
    I can't be bothered answering this, they're all good.

    13. Who is your favorite Stephanie (Shelby, Julianna, Chloe) and why?
    I refuse to answer this question because of a number of reasons. I don't feel that it is fair to pick people out of their job and say who is the best. Because that's not fair, Julianna was my childhood, but Chloe is someone I know personally. I don't think this is a fair question so I'm not going to answer it.
    14. Who is your favorite Robbie Rotten...naw just kidding!.....What is your favorite Robbie episode?
    Robbie's Dream Team

    15. What is your favorite Robbie disguise and why?
    Sportacus, I've already explained why.

    16. Which Robbie Rotten invention impresses you the most?
    Dunno...His time-machine maybe?

    17. Do you think the real life Stefan Karl is anything like Robbie Rotten or is he the opposite?
    I don't know... I've never spoken to him. J But all jokes aside, he seems like a really nice guy...so. I would love to speak to him. Perhaps, I will some day....

    Phewww...That was a lot of questions. See ya later.....

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    9. What are your favorite seasons?

    1 and 4 because they both have good songs.

    10. What are your least favorite seasons?

    2 and 3 because it feels uncomfortable listening to Juliana's aged voice when it's supposed to be an 8-10 year old and I don't like the break it down bits in 3.

    11. Ok, here’s the ‘Why’ questions...What are your favorite episodes from the seasons and why?

    Season 1: Prince Stingy or LazyTown's New Superhero because Stingy and great songs. 2: Trash Trouble because Clean Up is a great song. 3: The Blue Night because Here We Go. 4: The Last Sportscandy because ROBBIE BUILT A HECKING TIME MACHINE.

    12. What are your least favorite episodes from the seasons and why?

    1: None. 2: None. 3: All because "Let's break it down!" 4: Secret Friend Day because WHY DOES SPORTACUS HAVE TO GO TO A GLACIER JUST TO GET WATER. ALSO, HAS HIS WATER SUPPLY NEVER RUN OUT UNTIL NOW?

    13. Who is your favorite Stephanie (Shelby, Julianna, Chloe) and why?

    Juliana because she gets into it easily. Also, Chloe's wig is too big. (Hey, that rhymes!)

    14. Who is your favorite Robbie Rotten...naw just kidding!.....What is your favorite Robbie episode?

    Energy Book because "You're hot!"

    15. What is your favorite Robbie disguise and why?

    His normal because of all the silly compliments he gives like "Love your hair!"

    16. Which Robbie Rotten invention impresses you the most?

    I think it's obvious. ^

    17. Do you think the real life Stefan Karl is anything like Robbie Rotten or is he the opposite?

    I still think he's silly as Robbie.
    If every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs.

    Re: Interview with Fans at Get Lazy

    4. This is a hard question for me as I've only been a fan since the recent meme craze. Most fans I imagine are those who grew up watching Lazytown but that doesn't explain it's appeal to adults. Perhaps fans of Lazytown are quite knowledgable about music as this is what the show is known for.

    5. Lazytown is all about being healthy and having fun... and memes.

    6. N/A. Wish I could answer this one!

    7. If any of Pixel's gizmos actually worked in real life, I'd have one of those, otherwise I would love to take home a Stingy puppet.

    8. Definitely Man on a Mission. Excellent saxophone work there.

    9. Favourite season is season 1. I think most would agree. It just had more thought put into it, and of course the most episodes!

    10. This is a hard one - probably season 4. It was not as memorable as other seasons' episodes.

    11. Season 1: I really liked Secret Agent Zero because it was just downright hilarious. It pokes fun at themselves with the puppet jokes, and they purposely tried to make it look like a cheap imitation of James Bond. It's one of those things were it is so bad that it is brilliant. Honourable mention to Dear Diary.

    Season 2: Dancing Dreams comes to mind. It was an emotional episode, but only for the characters when the audience knows what is really going on. It was probably the closest episode to a grand finale that we got as well. Honourable mention to Birthday Surprise.

    Season 3: By a mile, maybe even 2 kilometres, The first day of Summer. Robbie slowly realising that being lonely is no fun was quite extraordinary to watch. I was also made aware that the scene with the faces of the children on volleyballs was a reference to Castaway. That shows exactly why this show appeals to older people and not just kids. Honourable mention to Who's who?

    Season 4: I have to go with Secret Friend Day. Finally an episode focused on Trixie. The part where Stephanie has to take Robbie to go out to sea was pretty funny. Honourable mention to Mystery of the Pyramid.

    12. S1: All from the compilation episodes (minus Dear Diary) weren't that good. Apart from that, didn't like Play Day. There wasn't much of a story line.

    S2: The Energy Book felt more like an advertisement for the energy book product than an episode.

    S3: Roboticus felt really rushed. Nothing much more to say about that really.

    S4: Let's go to the moon was an inferior version of Ziggy's Alien.

    13. As someone who didn't grow up with Lazytown, I still think Julianna had it Chloe covered on the acting and maybe the singing, but as for the songs themselves Chloe got better songs than Julianna.

    14. The first day of summer of course.

    15. Either the pirate or the wolf, or any other that doesn't show his face.

    16. His disguise machine

    17. Stefan is definitely not a rotten person! He's quite the opposite from what I've seen and heard.

    9. What are your favorite seasons?

    I love the rest of them.

    10. What are your least favorite seasons?

    Same as LAJMS123's answer.

    11. Ok, here’s the ‘Why’ questions...What are your favorite episodes from the seasons and why?

    I can't decide!

    12. What are your least favorite episodes from the seasons and why?

    None of them.

    13. Who is your favorite Stephanie (Shelby, Julianna, Chloe) and why?

    All, since they're amazing. But Shelby was only in the pilot...

    14. Who is your favorite Robbie Rotten...naw just kidding!.....What is your favorite Robbie episode?

    Robbie's Dream Team.

    15. What is your favorite Robbie disguise and why?

    I don't have a favorite.

    16. Which Robbie Rotten invention impresses you the most?

    Watch out Sportacus, the Memorizer 3000 is coming, and it has been used three times on him! (but he was better later).]

    Used in Sportacus Who?, LazyTown Live The Pirate Adventure (it was in english, but the only one on YouTube is in Portuguese) and Latabæjarhtáíð í Höllini. (Speaking of Latabæjarhtáíð í Höllini and LazyTown Live: The Pirate Adventure, we need it english translated soon!)

    17. Do you think the real life Stefan Karl is anything like Robbie Rotten or is he the opposite?

    Kinda the opposite.

    You should get in touch with PurpleDove, who owns lazytownpoint.com.
    Maybe she would agree to host it on her site.
