    Seasons 3 and 4 Intro

    I'm not exactly sure where I should post this, but I have a question regarding the intro/Welcome to Lazytown segment in Seasons 3 and 4. In all the versions of Seasons 3 and 4 episodes I've seen, there has been no intro/theme song portion. Searches for an intro featuring Chloe Lang seemingly only return fan made videos. Was there just no theme song in Seasons 3 and 4 or what?

    This seems like a perfectly good place to ask

    Welcome to LazyTown's length was decimated for seasons 3 and 4. A bad decision in my opinion. But it is still there in some sense. Many broadcasts of the show cut the cold opens as well to better fit air times.

    I always just assumed that they shortened the theme song in season 3 and 4 because Stephanie isn't "new in town" anymore. I guess there would be a lot to reshoot with Chloe if they did the whole theme song.

    Re: Seasons 3 and 4 Intro

    From my understanding, the main reason why it was cut, same as the credits, was to give more time in the actual episode part of the show. In season 3 specifically, the songs were on average about 36 seconds longer than season 1 and 2's (I did the math), so there's some time there. In both seasons 3 and 4, there was also a larger emphasis on Sportacus and his gadgets, which was done largely for (failed) marketing reasons. Also some extra time spent on Stephanie's new superhero persona. All in all, I think it's another symptom of the season 3/4 mentality of "more is better."

    I remember when season 3 was announced, I thought a lot about the different directions they could take; reshoot the old intro with Chloe, keep the intro as-is (unlikely), make a new intro with a new song... I never imagined that they'd do what they did. I was disappointed, and not the only time I was disappointed watching Roboticus after it premiered. I hoped it was just a one-time thing but nope. Then I hope again that they'd revert the change in season 4... double nope.

    Haha, you would do the math for that . That would make sense regarding trying to squeeze in more episode time. A few of the newer episodes have rushed moments, even in Bing Bang I feel.
