Hello everyone!
I've posted in threads before, but this is the first one I've actually started.
So as I've mentioned several times before, I am working on a LazyTown fanfiction called Ástin Opnar Augun Skćr. (Love Opens Up The Bright Eyes in Icelandic)(sorry, the way I work, I have to finish the whole thing, in case I think of twists later that would need hints at the beginning or something, so I haven't got any links for you yet.) Now it had been over a decade since I last watched the show, and so as "research" for this fanfic, I decided I couldn't release it until I've seen every episode, so I can get a better idea of the characters and their world. It later came to me that I should note down some of the things that happen for future reference. The slightest detail may be important. For example, I could write a character being allergic to nuts, but they eat peanut butter sandwiches in an episode.
I have a Google Sheets page where I'm planning this. One of the sheets is called "Episode Notes". And in this thread I will post what I've found and have noted down on that sheet.
By the way, this is a "Sportarobbie" fanfiction, so a main function of this is to look for moments where it looks like Sportacus and Robbie Rotten don't actually hate each other at all. There may be points where you will be like "Take your Shipping Goggles off!"
The notes for each episode will be posted in a random order.
Also, there will be talk of headcanons and theories I've come up with. For example, the name Rin will come up a lot. She is Responsive Intelligent Network; Sportacus's airship A.I. She is basically in all of Sportacus's gadgets, and monitors people's danger and distress detected by the crystal. When the crystal goes is off, she calls it "sounding an alert". Sportacus has ADHD. I've called Stephanie's mask the Placebo Mask.

In a nutshell, this thread will be my notes on LazyTown episodes, and you can read them if you want.

Welcome to Lazy Town

Here's a headcanon I need to work out; why is Stephanie staying with the mayor, and for how long?! And why does Bessie think she knows so much about raising kids, when it doesn't look like she has any of her own? Now one YouTuber made a theory that Robbie killed Sportacus 9 because the disguise tubes have disguises in them, among other things. Or he likes making costumes and is too lazy to put them on manually or something. Why is the ice cream stand closed when ice cream isn't healthy?! "This is exactly how I, Robbie Rotten, planned it. Lazy Town is the laziest town on Earth." What do you mean, planned it?! The pink house is by the Mayor's house as usual. "[The journey here] was okay. I like riding in trains." Stephanie. So she took the train. Her parents didn't supervise her to the Mayor's house, at least. "Well, this could mean trouble!" Robbie, after seeing her. "I'm so happy you've come to visit!" Mayor "Have a nice summer!" Mayor, after giving her the playing cards. "When Ziggy goes "Kids, playing in Lazy Town?!" an alarm on Robbie's periscope goes off. "She's talking to Ziggy." Robbie knows Ziggy's name. Pixel falls in love with Stephanie at first sight. Need to acknowledge this in Ástin. "That's what we're playing, Pinky!" Trixie comes up with this nickname within a minute of meeting Stephanie. Judging a book by its cover, I think. Robbie seems to look scary enough to take Stephanie aback. "Just the laziest, grumpiest, won't-do-anythingest person in all of Lazy Town!" Trixie "Why thank you! Took years of practicing!" Robbie "A ball! We were playing!" Stephanie doesn't sound very scared. Where did Robbie get the videogame Super Power Lizards from? Robbie knows exactly what will turn the kids back to laziness. There is a small sound effect-Trixie managed to break a window with a rubber ball. Stephanie's first impressions of Robbie are very low, but this is totally understandable. "Dear Diary... It's really weird here." Stephanie The Mayor suggests he cleans the town up when his niece says the town is messy. "You know [the local children] used to [play] but then they stopped!" Mayor "I remember a story, about a hero who came from an island in the North Sea!... there was a big number 9 on his chest!" Mayor. This is Sportacus 10's dad. "Don't do it, little girl! No! It will only cause trouble!" Robbie knows what that tube does. If he were more evil, he'd actively leave his hiding place and force Stephanie to stay away somehow. Why does he just stay back and watch it happen? This scene is used as evidence by fans for the "Nine abused Robbie" theory. Stephanie keeps changing her mind about which way round the letter "N" goes. "I've heard of Lazy Town before!... It used to be a great place to live, but now it needs help!" Sportacus, pulling out the town's history book. He opens it to a page titled "SPORTSDAY" He signs the letter "10". Where is he? Yes, in his airship, where's the airship? Stephanie was probably the first person Rin registered on her psychic scan. She would have prepared to pick up, or actively sought distress readings in Lazy Town after Sportacus gets the letter. There are two analogue pressure-meter things on the turning wheels. How did the paper aeroplane fly to where it needed to be? "Another one?!" Robbie, after Sportacus says he's Number 10. "Let's just say I'm a slightly-above-average hero." Sportacus Stingy and Trixie are playing on a seesaw, not a games console. Stingy's danger levels above threshold sets Rin off for the first time. Sportacus catches Stingy in his arms, as new acquaintances. Robbie wouldn't want to be in Stingy's shoes yet. Next to set Rin off are Ziggy and Trixie. She would register them before or soon after. She'd also note Robbie's distress when Sportacus arrives disturbing the peace. He's probably thinking something along the lines of "He has to go! Somehow!" Maybe a little "Swiggity swooty would you look at that booty!", but purely lustful. "And now it's time to put an end to Sportakook! Once and for all!" This is the first time Robbie says Sportacus's name, and he doesn't even get it right. I don't think Robbie's thought about rejoining the family business just yet, he just wants to nip this new irony in the bud. "It's Bessie!" Robbie knows her name. He hides behind a wall when she approaches. Why didn't he just stand up and tell her to go somewhere else? Why didn't Rin go off for Bessie?! We didn't see it, at least. "I don't get it. [The crystal]'s still blinking." Sportacus. Stephanie, without any help or prompt, has brought a life ring to get Bessie out of the hole. Sportacus basically lifted the Mayor, Stephanie and Bessie up with a rope. Afterwards, Robbie grabs at his chest, looks up, then down. What does this mean?! Not an insta-romance, please! Robbie, please get out from behind that wall. Why doesn't he leap out and protest? Sportacus looks to the right while considering staying. Did he see Robbie? And/or the kids' hopeful faces? Where is Robbie going when he falls into the hole? To tell everyone he's not happy with this? Where does Sportacus fly off to after Bing Bang? "I, Robbie Rotten, will not be beaten by a costumed Sportaloony, and some pink cheerleader!... I'll stop 'em, if it's the last thing I do! And then, Lazy Town will stay lazy, FOREVER!" Robbie. Bessie was fine, but his head and right foot are bandaged and his arm is in a sling. It hurts when he stamps his foot on the table in frustration. Post-episode, Sportacus is the one who gets Robbie out of the hole and bandages him up when he causes Rin to sound an alert. While Sportacus thinks he's a potential new friend, Robbie is not grateful for his help at all and rages at him, threatening that his days in Lazy Town are numbered before storming back to his lair. Robbie keeps the whole town awake for a little bit with his evil laugh, realizing that if he wants rid of a hero, he will be a villain like his family. It is his destiny. This probably scares Stephanie and the other kids. Rin warns Sportacus to watch out for Robbie Rotten.

Dr Rottenstein

"For I am Ziggycus, the strongest hero in the world!" Ziggy Of course Stingy's vegetable patch has signs saying "Mine" on it. Okay, why is Robbie spying on them behind the wall. Darn you UK for mixing up the episode order. Now I don't know where everything goes, and what Robbie thinks of Sportacus when. At least Play Day happens later so it can be an even slower burn. From where Robbie popped up, he was likely watching everyone from a point where he could only see Sportacus from behind. First of a lot of instances, by the looks of it. He saw Sportacus flip over him- did he see Robbie? "Hey Robbie!" Ziggy. Sounds friendly. "Don't you 'hey' me!" Robbie. Stephanie has this suspicious look on her face. Robbie's back cricks when he does a Sportacus impression. He calls them "vegetables" rather than "sports candy". He kisses a carrot. Probably doesn't like the taste. Robbie basically gets changed by wrapping himself in a long strip of cloth. Stingy can play the harmonica. Ziggy thinks that if he plants lollipops, a lollipop tree will grow or something. "Maybe we should call a doctor." Stephanie. Is that how things work in Lazy Town? People get a doctor over the phone? "Well my uncle moves a lot when Bessie calls in." Stephanie "Robbie Rotten moves a lot, but that's only when he's sneaking around." Pixel. ACCIDENTAL SAVAGE. "Isn't that the good looking guy?" Robbie. To which the kids all say no. "[Trixie] moves a lot when she's playing pranks on me!" Ziggy Something about the look on Sportacus's face... I wonder if he knows it's Robbie Rotten making this all up. Maybe it's because he's telling them all to stay away from vegetables. If this is Robbie's handwriting on the list of things not to do, it's very messy and loopy. "Well if the Mayor thinks [him leaving Lazy Town forever] is good for Lazy Town, I guess we should listen to him." Does Sportacus just blindly follow authority figures then? If Robbie's illusion spell isn't working on him, why does he play along? "A message from Sportacus!" Ziggy, when the blue paper plane gets stuck in his lollipop. Does Rin detect Robbie planning to break into her and take all her sports candy? Does she have her own danger and/or distress levels? Why doesn't she take the ladder back up? Does she know when Sportacus gets off? If there are pressure sensors on the ladder, she might. Or maybe she puts it back up when the ladder goes completely still, and it's still swaying a bit. She moves the platform back up when Robbie gets on it, but not the ladder. Why? Rin's cabin is echoey. This is Robbie's first time in here, and he doesn't know how she works. He learns that one floor button activates turning wheels. Why does the platform go down just like that?! "Sportacus!" Robbie knows his name. Rin's first traumatization. It could be right off the bat.

Lazy Town's New Superhero

This fanfic ended up having a couple of musical numbers, even though you can't hear a book. One of them is the song "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen.

There are already 2 skipping ropes there. Sportacus carries on almost oblivious to Stephanie getting tired out. An instance of Sportacus having to go for no apparent reason. Why was Robbie spying on Sportacus? Did he and Stephanie make too much noise with their warm-up? How did Robbie get his head out the bucket? Magic? Did he produce enough distress to set Rin off and then Sportacus pulled it off? Rin probably put the ladder back up remembering the Dr Rottenstein incident. Why is the 5th disguise tube empty? A Robbie Rotten outfit popped up just like that. "And I fell off a branch!" Ziggy "But you always do that." Stingy "I don't know how to have a vacation!" Sportacus. He's not lying-this episode got me wondering if he has ADHD. Sportacus taps his crystal case to unlock it. Periscope's vision zoomed out to show pretty much the whole town. "I didn't know you could do that!" Ziggy, when Stephanie does a splits. He saw her do one in the very first episode. Where did Stephanie get her "Sportastephanie" outfit from? When Ziggy fans him with a lollipop, does he ever see Sportacus struggling to keep still? Does Sportacus hear Ziggy drinking his juice? His eyes are shut. Where did Sportacus's ping-pong bat and ball come from? He then gets bored of it, so he does press-up-type things on the chair. "Here's a friend I never had!" Robbie, about Sugarpie. Robbie can tap-dance. Trixie can mix dubstep. Robbie has a cardboard Sportacus he can put his head through. Probably made it himself. He must be quite strong to lift Sugarpie's kennel up from the entrance pipe. Stephanie can flip and do cartwheels. Stephanie has Sportacus's crystal. She's not wearing it. Does she ever hear it? Where is it? The kids can see Robbie on his billboard from the park. When Sportacus offers Robbie his hand-Robbie flinches away as if he was going to hit him! The scene where Sportacus gets Robbie down from his billboard is such shipping fodder It's flashbacked in Hallelujah Rin perhaps considers Stephanie for Sportacus 11 after this.

Lazy Town's Greatest Hits

Stephanie and the Mayor acknowledge that they sing songs. "We are quite musical!" The Mayor. The fourth wall feels fragile. Robbie feels upset that no-one seems to be going to ask him what his favourite song is. Pixel uses CCTV on his house as a peek hole. How is Trixie's favourite song The Spooky Song when she wasn't in it? "...about your handsome uncle" Bessie. Either Meansbody confirmed or she was being sarcastic. Stephanie knew that was Robbie's periscope and looked right down it-she didn't seem scared at all.

Surprise Santa

The plan was for Seasons 1 and 2 to take place over about one year, from summer to April or May, and Seasons 3 and 4 another year. When "Ástin" starts, Stephanie has been in Lazy Town for 3 summers now, and it is autumn.

Sportacus's calendar has a day saying "Yesterday". The one behind "Christmas Day" seems to be called "Festival Day" I see they're calling a spade a spade this time (see The Holiday Spirit) How did all these baubles get all over the floor? There is a hole in Rin's floor which the baubles are funneled in so they can be shot out of the wall. How do they stick to the wall? Doesn't Bessie have enough phones already, Mayor? Even if they don't have Christmas ringtones? Robbie clearly wants to come to the party that no-one told him about. Let the feels commence! Ziggy's and Stingy's stockings are at the Mayor's house. How can Ziggy eat 162 different kinds of sweets in an hour without being sick?! Has someone given him toffee this year? "Every year Sportacus is a special guest of honour" Robbie FOR HOW MANY YEARS?! Robbie has a hand ornament thing he can shake. He's already drawn up plans to crash the party. It's a snowball, not a cannonball. That would kill Sportacus. (But such a big snowball would probably do some damage) Robbie kissed the snowball. Why? Rin sounded an alert before the Mayor had properly started to fall. No scarf, even? "My, oh my!" Bessie fans herself after Sportacus saves the Mayor. Possibly the first episode where Stingy has issues giving rather than receiving gifts, which happens twice in Season 3. 6 o'clock is all the way round the cannon's countdown-thing. It's dark and there are stars in the sky. What time is it now? Where's Sportacus going? He seemed to have fun building a snowman with Stephanie and Ziggy. Did he think they could do the rest by themselves? ADHD kicking in? Countdown thing counts down really fast. Does it start 5 minutes before 6 or something? Hold it. The tube with the Santa disguise was empty before. Lazy Town seems to have Northern Lights, or is that a cloud? "Your turkey is in the oven" Is Bessie's turkey the dry one from The Holiday Spirit? Ziggy's sugar rush chatter put Robbie to sleep. Robbie can fit down the Mayor's chimney. ROBBIE HAS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT! From who? Robbie pats Sportacus on the shoulder. With gloves on. Stingy says Robbie can stay at the party. "But you have to be good!" Stephanie. "Since this is Robbie's first time [at the Christmas party]" Sportacus That Robbie picture place card must have been made very quick. "I'm in trouble!" Robbie Rin didn't seem to make any beeping noises. Is that snowball going too slow? There is mistletoe. Mayor and Bessie were going to use it, until Mayor's jacket caught fire. Robbie will likely stay well away from it, particularly if Sportakiss is here. Sportacus gives Robbie his present. And then Robbie leaves. Why? Just get the present and go? Too much nice goodness for him? Sportacus and mistletoe nearby? He didn't open his socks in front of everyone. "I'm bad. And I like being bad. And I'm gonna stay bad!" Robbie. The snowman smiled. Robbie beheaded a snowman and threw the head in the cannon.

Lazy Town Goes Digital

Rin threw Sportacus a football when he says "Toothbrush", and then an apple. Something is wrong with Rin. She can crash and malfunction. And nothing happens when he says "Table!" "Bed" opens the door. "Control pod!" Sportacus basically performs brain surgery on Rin. (She should have backup hard drives and things because of the valuable information and programming she holds.) How did the butterfly get in there when the lid was closed? "Hi there! Hi Stephanie!" Pixel. Ziggy was with her. DID MILFORD STAND BESSIE UP FOR LUNCH?! If Bessie is his secretary, then what is he doing at the desk? If Milford didn't have an email address, then Bessie's email likely wouldn't even send, or reach the wrong person. I'm guessing Robbie couldn't sleep in his lair and wondered if sleeping somewhere different would do the trick. "Does "Go!" open the Sky Chaser's hatch? From where Robbie is watching them, I think he can only see the Mayor, and emphatically Sportacus, from behind. Pixel could easily organize Lazy Town's Wi-Fi. Rin probably isn't very scared when Robbie fakes a technician advert. Robbie can hear his phone ringing from a park bench. Robbie went down some steps built into the lair wall. Where did the computer come from? The Mayor's on Pixelspix. (Easter Egg?) Why get a technician when you've got Pixel? "Is there someone here in this town that has an airship that needs to be, erm... modernized?" Rin would hear this. This is after Dr Rottenstein-and after she discovers that Robbie fancies Sportacus. She is scared because Robbie's after her. He wants her for an evil plan. Robbie must have set everything up before he got into the control box and then said everything was ready. How did Robbie craft the "doohickey" to fit in Rin's brain? Mightn't Stephanie's 3000 dance channels keep Robbie awake? Is it because they're inside? How technophobic is Robbie? Not really, judging by this episode-did he order everything? Something tells me Rin can't talk if not summoned and a command isn't given-but what about "Control pod!" Why didn't she say "SPORTACUS, DON'T DO IT!" or something along those lines? Why did she let him put malware in her brain? Did she send a distress email to Nausicaa asking for help? Is this when she learns distress? I reckon the device hacks her brain to change her into an evil heartless purple, and later maddened version of herself. Robbie likely set up hidden cameras by the inventions-he'd better turn them off if they record the kids getting changed. Hopefully he didn't even think of that. Sportacus doesn't appear to have one. The cameras seem to zoom in and change angles-we have a full-body shot of Stephanie and her machine, and then just Stephanie from the waist up. Or there's more than one? When Sportacus says "Door!" it opens partway and shuts on repeat. Rin's psychic scan trouble detecting function seems to be working though-she sounds an alert and Ziggy and Stephanie at least are definitely distressed. The flight pod won't release when Sportacus pressed the button. But the "Control pod!" works. Robbie's doohickey has melted all over Rin's brain. And she opens the equipment cupboard for no reason. SPORTACUS COULD HAVE FALLEN TO HIS DEATH IF HE HADN'T GRABBED THE PLATFORM IN TIME. Lucky for Rin he lessened his fall with a yo-yo. If the swinging traffic light hit Stingy in the head, would it have killed him? Did the control box's malfunction cause Rin to malfunction? Hitting Pixel's satellite caused everything in his house to turn off. Sportacus appears to enjoy having pizzas thrown at him like it's a game. Does he have a sense of danger and/or fear? When dodging a pizza, he fell over a wall behind him. "There's no time guys come on hurry up!" Sportacus, after Ziggy calls for help. It's possible to look up Robbie's pizza machine and what wire to pull on the Internet. Pixel, Stephanie, couldn't you have helped Ziggy? Robbie must have ordered the pizza machine at least- there are two different models of it. "And even if technology fails, Sportacus is always there to save the day!" Pixel. "With a lot of help from all of you!" Sportacus Rin's 2nd traumatization. Officially. Was the doohickey remotely controlled by the control box? It had better be, or Rin is still infected. And even afterwards, her brain is covered in purple goo.

Snow Monster

Sportacus has a fencing sword sharp enough to make a sports candy kebab-Rin will want to keep the closet shut in Ástin's "elevator scene" because of it. Why would she unlock the door if she didn't want Sportacus to freeze to death? It would also mess with the cabin pressure or something. Do the kids know he's in the North Pole? (See Secret Friend Day. Was he getting water?) "Deep-freeze complete." Rin's psychic scan knows when the kebab is ready? Robbie was scared by his own disguise? How is Sportacus not cold? I don't feel a scarf alone will cut it. Why did Sportacus need to go? ADHD? Couldn't he have stayed and played? Pixel, for a solar-powered boombox to work, it would need the sun... which would likely melt all the snow. Including the igloo "needing" said boombox. How did the distress caused by the tremendously scary Snow Monster not set Rin off?! Because it wasn't a real Snow Monster?

Energy Book

"And milk gives you strong bones." Sportacus drinks milk. "Table" also puts it back in. Where did the spare Energy Books come from? When did Sportacus start using one? Did his dad give him one? Before getting the books, (during the music vid) Sportacus works out. ADHD? Energy to burn off? Robbie brushes his teeth with squirty cream. The kids have Sportacus water bottles. While eating cake, Robbie didn't seem too disturbed by the kids singing and playing. (Where are Pixel and Trixie, darnit.) Sportacus's jump caused an earthquake. Okay, why is Robbie riding a scooter? Robbie persuades Stingy not to fill his Energy Book by saying the stickers won't be his if he sticks them in. He is a manipulative weasel. Probably runs in the family. ROBBIE HAD A PILLOW IN A BIN. He heard Ziggy yelling "Carrots, here I come!" with earplugs in. To stop Ziggy eating carrots, Robbie eats some instead. LOL that's one way to do it. There is a water machine stand in Lazy Town. It's official; like it or not, Robbie has fallen victim to Lazy Town's irony. Robbie's hat fell off a while before the kids yelled "Robbie Rotten!"-this was when he stopped swinging and said "Where am I?" With a slightly cross-sounding sigh, Sportacus lets the rope go. Robbie flinches when Sportacus gives him an Energy Book! Is it just me, or...? He takes the book anyway. Could be a present from his crush! (Or just me again.) The sun set very quickly in Bing Bang, during "Having fun is what it's all about!". Robbie has a clock. "I won't go to sleep at 8:08!" Energy Book is open. The only way Robbie could have heard Sportacus tell Stingy and Ziggy that going to bed by 8:08 gives you bonus stickers is via the periscope. But he'll have heard Sportacus advise them on sleep before. WHY IS THERE A HOT DOG AND COLA STICKER IN ROBBIE'S ENERGY BOOK. And two brushing teeth stickers! For once, Robbie tries to stay awake when he is tired. Robbie says "Hello, Sportacus" in his sleep!

The Lazy Cup

"Ball!" Sportacus "Here comes another one!" Rin Sportacus can score a goal from the airship door. That pink house next to the Mayor's is really bugging me. Looks like Stephanie could live there but she seems to be in the room with the left window of her uncle's house. Stingy has gold football boots. Robbie basically can't kick a football. He has gotten out a mannequin dressed as Sportacus with a target round its neck. Its goggles are on its eyes and it has no moustache. Robbie has a "Big Book of Spooky-Wookies." Seems to be a record of all his previous disguises. It has "RR" on the front. Mayor and Miss B play some sort of springy toy football game together. The back of Stingy's shirt says "S. Spolero" He can kick a ball really high-right into Sportacus's airship. Rin did not disobey a "Door!" command and did not keep the door shut to stop the ball flying in. She just said "Door opening." "That could be trouble." Sportacus reckons a football flying in and bouncing back out again could be trouble-Rin would surely have let him know if it was. Sportacus saves the trophy from being hit and broken by an incoming football. He could have heard Ziggy saying "It's going to break the trophy!" and/or it could be an excuse to show off. There's something about Robbie's sigh when he sees Sportacus balancing the ball on his head via the periscope-either I've got Shipping Goggles on (which is likely) or that sigh was not just frustration. "Ahh, not him again!" Is the periscope able to zoom out or change its position from here? Because it can only see the trophy-and Sportacus. He then looks to the left to see the kids. Robbie looks at Sportacus as he flips away. "The cup is ready, the wish is ready," Mayor We didn't see the tube with Robbie's coach disguise. He just spins round and it's there. Also, LOVE the hair. Robbie calls the Lazy Cup "world-famous" and it seemed only to have been created that day. And yet the Mayor seems to smell no rats. A cat meowed when Robbie kneed the ball and it crashed. Robbie has a picture of 5 spooky-wookies together in his Big Book. He does a sort of strut when he walks as Coach Rottaldo. Roboticus is in the 1st disguise tube. This bit must take some serious magic-he spins round by the disguises and they disappear and reappear outside their containers-brought to life. Team Rottaldo's logo has the letters RR. Their wish is for Sportacus to leave town forever. (What's the kids' wish?) And no-one's suspicious. "Roboticus is after me!" Stephanie. She remembers its name. The spooky-wookies burst Sportacus's ball. If Bessie and the Mayor feel it's odd or wrong for Team Lazy Town to be only one person strong (Sportacus), they don't say anything. Its logo says "LAZYCUP LAZYTOWN FOOTBALL TEAM" Sportacus likely doesn't know who Coach Rottaldo really is-he probably wouldn't accept apples from Robbie Rotten, no matter how low his energy levels. (Where did Robbie get the sugar apple from?) Sportacus's bracer can shoot paper aeroplanes. They had no half-time. The only time everyone got a break was when Team Lazy Town entered a sugar meltdown. Sportacus probably wrote a letter asking for help beforehand in case of emergencies. Why can't they ALL go? And if Pixel and Trixie were there they could have 5-a-side and a substitute! The Fantastic Racism really hacks me off sometimes. Rin answers to Stephanie in emergencies. The toy footballers shrink back down just like that. The dinosaur pulls his head off to reveal Robbie's and says "Spooky-wookies. Boo."

Chef Rottenfood

Sportacus has a bowl with a crystal case design on it. You can't tell from this angle whether the table tennis bats came from the backpack or the belt-it looks like the belt, but how would they fit?! Carrots shoot out from holes near Rin's floor. Sportacus can cut them by hitting them through a tennis racket. "[Chef Pablo Fantastico is] the best chef in the world!" This could just be the Mayor's opinion, or he actually is. The Mayor seems to be a bad cook, judging by his fried everything splat. "He cooked something that looked like a giant lollipop!" Ziggy sounds disgusted while talking about lollipops. "Does anybody know anything about cooking?" Stephanie. "Errr, no." The other kids. WHAT ABOUT THE CAKE IN SWIPED SWEETS. Stephanie leans in close over Pixel's shoulder while he's ordering the cookbook. What does he think of this? Or is he too busy typing? It's not just Robbie that can order things super-fast. Pixel's cookbook was very quick. "11.4 seconds, to be exact." It was actually 4 seconds. I counted. We don't see the delivery guy's face, but they appear to be a white puppet wearing a red jacket. There are red takeaway containers littered around Robbie's microwave with a yellow "Slurp" as the meat in a white burger bun against a purple background. Robbie keeps nails in a paper bag. His fridge is dark blue instead of white, with an orange and blue RR logo on the side. Looks like the digital control box or the time machine. It's next to the microwave. WHY IS THERE SPORTS CANDY IN ROBBIE'S FRIDGE?! And a lot of it! Inside the fridge, it is orange instead of white. As soon as Robbie says "I'M SO HUNGRY!" the TV drops down showing a Rottenfood advert. The chef looks like Stefan Karl. "This food will make you sleep all day!" Chef. Robbie doesn't like spending too long cooking. A 5 years' supply costs 1 million dollars. (Dollars again... I wanted them using krona...) So Robbie has a million dollars?! And did he also order it because it sounds like an insomnia cure that's too good to be true? As soon as Robbie finished his first sentence a large crate of Rottenfood drops in. He didn't have time to give his address or bank details. "...the best Mediterranean chef in the world!" Stephanie, talking about Pablo Fantastico. That appears to be Robbie's sugar apple machine. It can turn Rottenfood into burgers too. Robbie can hear Ziggy when the speakers haven't dropped down. The periscope's eyes can move. Instead of picking a disguise from a tube, Robbie ducks down and jumps spinning up the pipe outside to land in front of a wall where his rotten burger stand is already set up. That was quick. Did he summon it? Pressing a little red button on it makes a giant neon sign appear on top. Is it a Burger King reference? Because the sign is of a burger wearing a crown! How much money does Robbie have? Does he actually need the revenue from these burgers, or did he blow it all on Rottenfood? Say, why would a world-famous chef open a restaurant in what appears to be a middle-of-nowhere little town? "Smells like a rotten egg!" Trixie, about Robbie's burgers. Robbie doesn't seem to mind the smell, so is Ástin's "rotten egg scene" in jeopardy? "No Robbie!" Ziggy. They know it's him when he's dressed like a giant burger. But there's nothing obscuring his face or hair. Robbie changes back to normal by walking round the back of the burger stand without stopping. Pablo is unloading stuff off a boat. In a bird's-eye shot in Secret Friend Day, a forest can be seen behind the beach, but right now it's all hills. "Bienvenido to my Meditteranean restaurant!" Pablo. "My uncle really wants to cook a meal for his special friend Ms Busybody." Stephanie "You have to get some sports candy" Pablo. Doesn't look like he's been here long. "Perdon. Sometimes I get a little bit carried away." "Vamos!" Pablo. Pablo appears to be watching the match in the Lazy Cup. "That is my other passion. Football!" Pablo. "[Bessie] goes cuckoo over chicken!" Mayor I.e. she loves it. Pablo and the Mayor are quite close by Robbie saying he's getting rid of Pablo now. Another quick change by Robbie-he ducks befind the fence and comes straight back up again as Pablo. What's that hole even doing there? And why is it by Trixie's wagon? Sportacus has two skateboards-just lying there. "Ball!" summons a tennis ball this time. Pablo air-kisses Sportacus on both cheeks. This could of course be a Mediterranean custom people do to friends and people who've saved them. Robbie tells the Mayor to sit down and relax while he screws up the chicken with sugary nonsense. Is it because he can tell the Mayor's getting stressed out? He'd screw up the chicken with sugary nonsense no matter what. Robbie cooks the chicken with a flamethrower. Pablo sees he's Pablo when he's got something over his face to protect it. Robbie is a bad cook. "Gracias." Pablo. "Signore. I challenge you to a duel!" Pablo slaps Robbie with Robbie's oven glove. Robbie doesn't like olive oil, judging by how he reacted after kissing the bottle. "ROBBIE ROTTEN!" And the fake moustache is still on. "GIVE ME YOUR HAT!" Interactions between Bessie and Robbie are rare, and Bessie is clearly angry here. Has she ever not disliked him? Robbie obeys her. "Sportacus! I will cook for you!" Pablo hugs him. Like the kiss, it could be a Mediterranean thing or love at first sight. Robbie reckons he will have to eat Rottenfood every day for the rest of his life. He doesn't seem too happy about it. He only ordered a 5-year supply. If this happens roughly a year before Ástin, then this could be some hella dark foreshadowing-he could die before he finishes. [sentence blocked for spoiler reasons] What does Pablo think of Robbie after what he did? Probably doesn't like him and bans him from his restaurant.

Breakfast at Stephanie's

Sportacus cuts a banana with a fencing sword. Rin chucks him an ice cube from the water section when he says "Ice!" "Table in!" Rin, when he takes the flask off it. She tucks the table back in without any other prompt. "That's a breakfast smoothie. Shaken, not stirred!" DOES SPORTACUS KNOW THAT'S A JAMES BOND REFERENCE?! Stephanie's tablet ringtone seems to be the same sound as when she unlocks it. This might be the second time since Lazy Town's New Superhero that she runs out to play without getting much breakfast. The tablet's background screen is a pink shiny S. "In-ter-net. What will they think of next?" Mayor. Pixel's parents let him play computer games for 2 days straight. He can make helmets that turn the wearer invisible. "No-one suspects the mailbox!" Robbie Stingy called for Stephanie when Pixel fell asleep, but I didn't hear Ziggy's name mentioned. Trixie was calling the doctor-who is the doctor? Is the fly bothering Robbie the same one that befriended him in The First Day of Summer? Rin went off for a fly trapped in a bin. Maybe because Robbie Rotten had trapped it? I'm guessing Sportacus never trips unless something invisible trips him up. Sportacus is practicing football tricks in the park. Does he go there by himself when the kids are at school? Stingy's snack box has a flannel with a pink S on it. Is that Stephanie's flannel? Did he steal it? "I would love some breakfast!" Sportacus Did he not have some earlier?! The Mayor has a painting of Girl With A Pearl Earring with Ms Busybody's face. Sportacus's crystal flashes once after eating sports candy. I don't think it's wise to handstand straight after eating-you could throw up. And does Sportacus ever get indigestion? Wonder if Stingy's counting sheep storybook could cure Robbie's insomnia? Everyone else fell asleep. He did get sleepy. Anyone can dab, Trixie. You don't need people to teach you. Robbie claps twice and a blackboard with an already-drawn evil plan appears behind him. Did he summon it? I think Pixel has rigged the whole of Lazy Town with CCTV. Robbie has left his evil plan blackboard behind for Pixel's camera to see. "Who would do such a thing?" Stephanie Erm, Robbie Rotten?! You should know the drill by now! After being alerted, Sportacus looks through his telescope to see Robbie laughing with a funny helmet. So he sets off. Robbie took the Invisinator 3000 home with him. Does Pixel ever ask for it back? How did Robbie disappear when he pressed the TV remote?

The Holiday Spirit

Where did Sportacus get the Christmas tree from? Did he cut it down? Either the fairy lights are battery-powered, or there's a plug in the middle of the floor. Hooked up to Rin. "Lights!" Ziggy doesn't want toffee? "Hi Robbie!" Stephanie. No suspicion whatsoever. Robbie has a calendar that shows which days he's been naughty on, and which disguises he's used to do so. Everyone says hello to Robbie with little to no suspicion. "Hello, Mr Rotten!" Mayor "Since when does Robbie help?" Stingy. "The [holiday] party's for everyone in Lazy Town!" Mayor. Including Robbie. And people want him to come. Will there be mistletoe at the party? He does something selfless!-offers to cook the turkey so they won't have to eat a crap one made by Ms Busybody. "I know everyone's name!" Santa is real, and Lazy Town is his last stop. "[Stingy's] teddy bear's name is Pookie!" The Spooky Song Is Santa Claus psychic? He said the kids should make a new turkey out of sports candy. Stop being so PC and call it Christmas. "What about Robbie?!" Pixel He was on the naughty list. Why do I want to cry? Why did Robbie imitate Sportacus when he woke up?! "Sportacus!" When he saw him outside the hatch. They gave him an apple. Why, when they should know by now what he thinks of sports candy?

Secret Friend Day

Sportacus can cut oranges with a karate chop. And break a watermelon into neatly cut bits just by kicking it. "[Secret Friend Day] is one of the best ideas you've ever had!" Ziggy Secret Friend Day=Secret Santa but for all year round. Two scoops with a cherry on top.That's a small ice cream for Robbie. Oh, and a sports candy on top! Robbie drops his ice cream when Sportacus somersaults over him-did Sportacus see him or was he going too fast?-and looks up to see why he dropped his ice cream. He lands with his back to Robbie-and his knees bent. From this angle, the pink house seems to be a little distant from the Mayor's. "Bye Robbie!" Sportacus, while still in motion. Robbie follows him to the kids and hides behind a wall. Either to see what was worth killing his ice cream-with sports candy-over, or something more? Or just me. "(frustrated sigh) Sportafloppy! (another one) He's always ruining everything!" In the background, Robbie flinches when Sportacus lands from his cartwheel. Yet another moment where he can only see Sportacus from behind. But he appears to be looking at the backpack. The kids want Sportacus to join in Secret Friend Day. "My water comes from a very special place way up in the North!" (Iceland) Sportacus Will Rin still be able to run a psychic scan on Lazy Town? "Hello there happy, annoying children!" Robbie If Sportacus leaves town, then Robbie might finally be able to ditch his "heart problem"! Ziggy asks Robbie if he wants to join in Secret Friend Day! Stephanie looks like she wants him to too. I wonder if Robbie is dyslexic. He can read Trixie's name, albeit quite slow. He doesn't know that's Loud Girl's real name. "Stephanie! Ahhh!" When Trixie draws her name out of the helmet. Another instance of me not knowing exactly why someone sighs. Possible Trixanie (one-sided?) confirmed?! Trixie only asks "Pinky" who she got. "Well, I can't tell. It's a secret. But it's a very special friend." Stingy can be quietly heard saying "Oh it's me, isn't it." in the background. "Oh mine too!" Trixie. And they giggle. And Trixie gives a lovesick-sounding sigh! Robbie has a teddy bear he brings with him on holiday. For obvious Easter Egg reasons Sportacus gets his water from Iceland. There's a globe on his bracer screen showing him the route. This hacks me off-I wanted to set Lazy Town there-for Easter Egg reasons. Interestingly, the route passes right over America and is nowhere in most of Europe. We can't see where the route starts-so where is Lazy Town?! "Get ready to pedal, Sportacus. It's a long way to go." Rin "I wonder what Stephanie's got me." Trixie Iceland is completely covered in snow. "Down!" this time deploys a turning wheel instead of lowers the platform. Rin has a hook that can pick up giant ice cubes. "Ice ready for boarding." Rin. Can she see down in the glacier then? The hook's pulleys have to be spun in opposite directions. "We can't start without [Trixie]!" But Robbie isn't there either. "Trixie's always late!" Stingy. Trixie appears to have rather messy handwriting. Pixel is the only person who remembers Robbie was taking part too. When Trixie's rant wakes Robbie up, he says "Floppy's back?!" He's wearing a short-sleeved shirt, so he can't be self-harming on his arms. Riddle me this: How can Rin pick up a distress signal coming from the MOON when she doesn't seem to register Trixie's distress in Iceland?! "Kids, you have to stop tricking me into your activities like this!" Robbie I don't think Robbie can swim. He wears his duck rubber ring on the raft as well as a life jacket. "I would never forget about you Trixie!" Stephanie "Pixel how long has it been?" Stingy "It's been a long time!" Pixel. So he isn't always precise. Did Robbie summon the fake beard? "Approaching Lazy Town." Rin. She sounded an alert pretty much straight after. "Look! The SportShip!" Stephanie Robbie is visibly excited when the girls see Sportacus flying over-this is obviously because he can get them home from being stuck at sea. Or something else too. (gets rekt) Sportacus must have eagle eyes-Robbie, Stephanie and Trixie seem quite far out. But not too far to throw a life ring to. Sportacus is strong enough to pull the whole raft back. "Robbie! Over here!" Sportacus helps him off the raft by holding both his hands. Robbie probably feels a burning sensation in them afterwards. Robbie clearly wants to hug Sportacus! But Stephanie gets there first! "Oh, Trixie are you okay?" Stingy "Well, this was the worst vacation for me ever!" Robbie. Ego-centric as usual. Stephanie pats his shoulder. "And the next time you kids are gonna play one of your silly games, don't ask me to play with you!" I reckon he's gonna regret that... "Bye Robbie!" Stephanie Stingy gives Ziggy a cleaning kit (he's clearly learnt to give by now)-and Ziggy is seen cleaning Stingy's car. Voluntarily? Robbie reckons a friendship bracelet is something you wear on your quiff. Stephanie was his Secret Friend-she wraps the gift in the music video. And she called him a "very special friend"! I reckon she made Trixie one too, because she didn't get anything.

Princess Stephanie

"Table!" Sportacus "Table out!" Rin She doesn't always say this. "Wicket!" Croquet goals come up from the floor. (What happens with cricket wickets then?) This episode clearly takes place after The Holiday Spirit-Ziggy is wearing the Sportacus backpack he asked for. Does it have a Rin controlling it? Also, that cosplay is kawaii as heck. "Hello, Sportaziggy here!" He has a phone that looks like a sweet. Its ringtone sounds kind of like Cooking By The Book. Stephanie has a pink phone. (duh) It looks mobile or cordless. "[a princess is] something I've always wanted to be!" Stephanie. Ziggy didn't take Teddycus with him. Milford helps Bessie with her laundry. Trixie's a big fan of Robin Hood. So much that she dresses like him. I wonder if Pixel is even more besotted with Stephanie when he sees her princess dress. Ziggy sighs when he sees it. Trixie doesn't seem to have any reaction-that may be because she was too busy climbing the tree. Sportacus punches his crystal when he says "Racket!" and flicks something on his belt for a tennis "Ball!" (was that voice command necessary?) to grow out of it. Where is Rin listening from? The backpack? It would be closest to his mouth. "Stephanie I need your help!" Sportacus. Cue Mask Moment. "Ziggy come help!" Stephanie Why not Stingy and/or Pixel? Once again, from where Robbie is watching everyone (probably to find out who woke him up) he can only see Sportacus fom behind. "Stephanie always comes up with fantastic ideas for games!" Sportacus "Maybe I don't have to get rid of him, I have to stop her!" He's gone after Stephanie before in Dancing Dreams and Who's Who. If I'm fridging Stephanie's mum, Robbie can't know about it. Stephanie will seem easy to get rid of because he sees her as weaker beause she is smaller and younger. Also, unlike Sportakiss she is impossible to fancy because she is a) female (he's gay) and b) underage at that. When Robbie hears that Stephanie wants to be a real princess, he does something kind and grants her wish. Albeit twisting things for his own ends. Another instance of him announcing today's evil plan where the kids could hear it. Robbie stamps on the floor for a lever to appear taking him to his lair. Sportacus and Robbie Rotten outfits are right next to an outfit Robbie calls "Too shippy." IS IT JUST ME?! There must be a massive pipe at the top of the lair for Robbie to fly a hot-air balloon out of it. Tapping his cane unrolls a red carpet outside Robbie's balloon. I'm guessing magic. "But, who are you?" Ziggy, to Robbie in disguise as The Royal Princess Training Master. Robbie tells Sportacus to hold his sceptre. "Palace? We have a palace?" Mayor This, along with Princess for Eternity's backing dancers, could be one of Robbie's biggest illusions yet. There is a quick shot in Princess for Eternity where TRIXIE AND STINGY APPEAR TO BE DANCING A WALTZ. Strixie confirmed? Robbie dances in this song, and well too. Does Stephanie have hair extensions in her fancy new outfit? Robbie appears to be able to play the bugle. "But, but [Stephanie] always comes up with the best games!" Ziggy "Are you sure it's good for a princess to not be playing with her friends? I mean, she is a very active girl!" Mayor. Sportacus ran up a tower. "The Stephanie I know is a happy girl! She likes to move and eat sports candy and play!...You'll figure it out... if you're ever in trouble, I'm never far away." Sportacus Some of the cakes on Robbie's table appear to be decorated with sports candy. "Oh, I love my chocolate goo!" Stephanie. Robbie is visibly confused-he knows she's more of a sports candy person. Manipulative Stephanie makes another appearance. She can tell her training master loves his chocolate gooey cake (can she tell it's Robbie?) and, as his ideal princess, makes him faint describing the ginormous sugary chocolatey cake she wants to order everyone in Lazy Town to bake for her. The cherry on top is when she says that everyone would be so full after eating it they couldn't move. A cat meows when Robbie faints on it. Where did it come from? Stephanie organizes her own escape plan, getting Robbie to take her out in the coach so she can announce this new law. "I'm hungry!" Ziggy "Ziggy, we're on a mission." Stingy, while they're hiding behind a bush. (cue Ástin deja-vu) Ziggy should have something to eat on him during Ástin's "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" scene. Sportacus can cut an apple in half with an arrow having what looks like a toilet plunger for a point. Stingy gives Ziggy half an apple without any fuss! Milford can make a whistle that sounds exactly like a bird. Sportacus has his own saw. Trixie can fire an arrow at a skateboard quite far away. I wonder if Sportacus had an "I knew it" kind of look on his face when Robbie's disguise got busted? Everyone yells "Robbie Rotten!" when his moustache comes off. Milford says "Oh brother." Bessie gives a frustrated sigh. Sportacus seems to give a "You again..." kind of sigh.

Ziggy's Talking Teddy

I made a headcanon that the wind-up Teddycus can read minds. That's how he knows what to say to hurt people. And after this episode, he makes Robbie feel bad about his feelings for Sportacus, incorporating homophobic slurs.

"Basketball Day is tomorrow" Mayor Is this an official holiday then? Why does the real Bobby Bird look and sound like Robbie Rotten? And wear a shirt saying "LT Floppers"? When Stingy accidentally throws a basketball at Robbie's stomach, waking him up, everyone backs away like they've broken a window or woken a dragon. Robbie must have been sleeping quite near the kids, for them to ask him to throw the ball back. Ziggy takes Teddycus outside and brings him to stuff. Robbie wakes up when Ziggy says "Teddycus", a little louder. Is it because Sportacus is involved? Robbie says today's evil plan by where he was sleeping, which was within talking distance and so perhaps earshot of the kids. "But it's the first time I've played basketball!" Ziggy How exactly are wishes granted? Sportacus can spin two basketballs at once. Teddycus winked. Ziggy can spin a basketball on his finger. People sell "Teddycuses." Teddycus's box was chucked in as soon as Robbie ordered it. It would probably point out Robbie's Sportacrush-why didn't he tell everyone so it would hurt most? Mightn't Ziggy sleep cuddling Teddycus instead of having him on his drawers? Ziggy has a basketball hoop in his room. I can't work out if Sportacus knows it's Robbie Rotten. And if he's jealous of someone else getting all the hero-worship for once. "Our first player is Robbie Bird!" Mayor. Was it a simple mistake, or something more? "Oh, huh." Ziggy The ball blatantly flew to the side before the magnet pulled it to the hoop. I'm guessing magic took away any suspicion. "In your face!" Robbie "Okay, thank you!" Ziggy "Teddycus is afraid of heights!" Ziggy Ziggy wishes for Sportacus to stay in Lazy Town forever, and he wins. That doesn't seem to stop Robbie though. Why were footballs and pizza attracted by the magnet? Which was to the right of Robbie, and yet everything got stuck to him. The continuation (which I wrote) of the ending scene did not get aired due to time constraints and Teddycus being a [jerk]. It is flashbacked in Ástin though. Rin has to see Robbie in a new light.
