Known as Maggi Mjói in Icelandic, Jives is a character that appeared in Áfram Latibær, Glanni Glæpur í Latabæ, and Jól í Latabæ.

Áfram Latibær

In the first play, Jives is portrayed as a sloppy, skinny, dispirited, and perhaps arrogant boy. He refuses to eat anything besides coco puffs, and thus doesn't have much energy. But when he meets Íþróttaálfurinn (Sportacus), he discovers that he needs to eat other types of food to grow strong, healthy and happy.

Glanni Glæpur í Latabæ

In the second play, Jives appears again, but now as a strong, healthy, happy and friendly boy. In contrast to the first play, Jives is given some "cool" mannerisms. He says "Yo!" and "Totally!" as catchphrases. His best friend seems to be Ziggy.

Trivia

  • Jives was intended to be a character in the television series as well, but was scrapped for unknown reasons. However, his house can still be seen in the background in earlier episodes.
