    What If LazyTown Was Acquired By Someone Else?

    Seeing how Turner basically abandoned LazyTown not even four years after buying it, this question popped in my head.

    What if LazyTown was bought out by someone else? And who would it be?

    My bet would be on Viacom. After all, Lazy Town only became a hit because of Nickelodeon itself. I know, they had their problems, but they kept it on the air for about 7 years (on both Nick and Nick Jr). However, if they owned it completly, it would like LazyTown came full circle in owner ship?

    What other companies would be a good fit for LazyTown?

    There's a sentence I never thought I'd see … xD

    But no, it wouldn't. Disney didn't turn Giselle from Enchanted or Princess Leia into a Disney Princess because both of them were first depicted in a live-action movie and they don't want to pay the actresses for using their likenesses in merchandise.

    Anyway, didn't Turner just commission two more seasons of LazyTown because four seasons is better for marathon airings, and they never intended to have it continue? I think it was Jodi Eichelberger who said so in the GetLazy interview.

    I don't think Stephanie would appreciate that.

    @RobHomeboy94 This was said in the interview with Mni Svavarsson.

The reason being that LazyTown was sold to Turner, and Turner started production of season three and season four and funded that, but now I think their feeling is that they have enough episodes to be what is called evergreen in this business, which means that you can start on season one up to season four, and you will have this package that TV stations like. They will get episodes to run for almost two to three years with on-off breaks, and I think that was their goal with making season three and four, just to have a bigger package of episodes, and thats what they have now.

    In the Jodi interview, he said that he and David would do a YT collab together if they still owned the puppets. If LazyTown does become a YTR series, RIP my bank account cuz I'd definitely get a subscription.
    Why would you have to pay for watching it?

    I do not doubt this theory. But at the same time as we have seen with many,MANY Disney Series we can pretty much kiss any chance of a Full LT Release on DVD Or Blu Ray Goodbye

    Re: What If LazyTown Was Acquired By Someone Else?

    I think Nickelodeon would still be the best company to buy LazyTown because then, Seasons 5 and 6 will go back to its roots. There might be people complaining that LazyTowns quality decreased after being bought like how Spongebobs quality decreased after the first movie.

    I never knew LazyTown got updated for Season 3 and 4 until the We Are Number One memes appeared.

    True, they started with them, but then they decided they wouldn't pay for the licensed import that is LazyTown and wouldn't air it.
