    Who was the mayor running against

    So I was on Tumblr and user rikkihannerbestur posted:

    the Lazytown opening sequence has posters of Milford that say “Re-elect Me” but before Sportacus shows up the only Lazytown residents of age are Bessie, Robbie, and Milford himself, so the question is: who is he running against? The town is already lazy so it doesn't seem like Robbie would have any interest in being mayor, and Bessie doesn't seem like she cares that much. Did one of the kids try to run against him? Is he just worried that people will forget who he is when it's time to vote? and while we're at it, how long has Milford been in office??

    So lets start a mini discussion... who was the mayor running against? Or why is there an election if the Mayor is just running against himself.

    I'd say Stingy thanks to the Jodi interview + knowing how much money he has... he's pretty much the 'Donald Trump' of LazyTown if he does become mayor.

    That or they need to have an election to make it 'legit'.

    There would be other adults in Lazytown, we just don't see them. Would be one of them who was running against Milford.

    It'd be interesting if it was the original puppet for the mayor

    Re: Who was the mayor running against

    Most likely he is running unopposed but they still have to vote. I know a town like this where they've elected the same mayor for 40 years. And nobody runs against him because he's the mayor. Are you telling me there's an adult citizen of LazyTown who isn't too lazy to run? Stuck in their habits no doubt. After all, Milford's mayoral role is just as much his identity as his job.

    Re: Who was the mayor running against

    Maybe Stingy's father? He's supposed to be the richest man in town I think, so you'd think he had a bit of influence.

    Anyway, my personal headcanon is that there ARE other adults living in LazyTown (including the puppets' parents), but all of them have jobs out of town and therefore they are never present during the day. The Mayor, Bessie and Sportacus temporarily take over the parenting roles in their absence. The reason you never see the puppets' parents when they go to bed is that they are in the house, but sleep in different rooms. This would explain why they say that everyone is there in The First Day of Summer despite the fact that you only see the main cast: Everyone who is ABLE to go to the beach during the day is present. (Well, except for Robbie, but they don't think he would want to.) I'm not actually sure what Bessie's job is if she has one, but Milford is obviously the Mayor so he has to stay in town at all times, while Sportacus and Robbie don't have proper jobs outside of "being a superhero" and "villainy" respectively.

    Yep, I am aware of that, but if everyone else who doesn't have a day job out of town is on the beach too there's no reason he has to stay and keep track of things. What I meant was that if my theory is correct, the reason there seems to be so few adults in LazyTown is that those you do see either have no jobs or work inside the town like the Mayor does.

    Yes but if they brought it in the actual show I have a feeling they would have it be a different character

    Who was the mayor running against

    LazyTown is not consistent with this idea, nor should it be, but generally, it's implied that there is more to the town than what is followed on the TV series. So if I'm forced to come up with something, I would say another unseen citizen of LazyTown. Or maybe the poster is several election cycles old, and they just never took it down. It is LazyTown after all. Or maybe it was Robbie Rotten haha.

    I love how you said that... but they're not lazy to put up MORE posters!

    Well, chronologically, the footage seen in the intro would either be taking place alongside or close to the events of Welcome to LazyTown. The dilapidation of the town was a problem then, but was mostly solved after that.

    Re: Who was the mayor running against

    Stingy,Ziggie,Trixie and the others must have parents...probably brothers and sisters too. Theres a mail box so there is a mailman. Garbage cans so they have garbage men. and they read, so they must be teachers around. There are alot of empty holes in LZ town. So somebody wants to be mayor and make money.

    I Agree he's kinda lazy and he sleeps all the time!

    - - - Updated - - -

    In The mine song Stingy claims a triangle sign with a sleeping person on it

    So He could have been running for mayor as well

    I can't see Jives wanting to be Mayor. Though it would be nice to see at least one episode with him in it.
