    Habits in the plays that they had to change for the show

    Here are some examples:
    Bessie Busybody smoking and being rude
    Trixie being a bully
    Ziggy being obese
    Reasons:
    1. Unsuitable for television, especially channels like Nick, Disney, and Sprout.
    2. Inappropriate for preschoolers, the original age group for the show.
    3. Who knows? Maybe because it might offend fat people.

    Robbie actually being evil (poisoning people, enslaving children, etc.)

    Nick Jr. villains can only ever be completely harmless.

    It's hard to watch GGiL as Robbie Rotten in Lazytown because Glanni is too unlike Robbie and it's weird when the subtitles call him that.

    Another one, though it's kind of vague:

    Goggi, at least in GGiL and JiL seems generally "weirder" than Pixel in the show. Maybe this is just because puppets can't be quite as expressive and dynamic as live-action people, and it could just been a coincidence of adaptation or idk. Does any of what I just said make sense?

    Probably cause they thought the same thing, and Nick wanted Pixel to be more, interesting, instead of "HI BEEP BOOP ME A GIZMO GUY".

    Isn't that what Pixel was in the show 90% of the time anyway?

    Well, in the plays, I know he was obsessed with TV more than computers. Also, he knew what a record player is. Then again, he did seem to know what a record player was in season 1 and 2, but when they made season 3 and 4, he thought it was a CD player. Almost as if he forgot what a record player was.

    Maybe they thought preschoolers in 2004 knew what records are, but not kids a decade later.

    Re: Habits in the plays that they had to change for the show

    My thoughts are that with every play and every season the same (part of the) year is relived over and over again. With parts in one season we didn't see in another one (for the TV-show that is) of that same year they live in. But you need to stay up-to-date, move with the times and follow technology and other stuff that develops, otherwise people from the time that it's released can relate. I think you can call it improvements of the concept, but that's not always the case.
