The Action Time title

On September 15, 2008, a spin-off television series called LazyTown Extra debuted in the UK on CBeebies. A "magazine format style show" for 3- to 6-year-olds, it features characters from LazyTown in an assortment of short sketches. 26 episodes of LazyTown Extra have been produced, each between 11 and 15 minutes in duration. Several characters are voiced by different actors from those who performed in LazyTown. Ziggy was on the move at different locations including sport, exercise, fun facts. There is also a variation called Action Time!, the most notable change is that Ziggy isn't visiting kids around the world, instead he is in a room talking about the topic of the episode. This was likely done to make it easier to dub the episodes in other languages. Some countries like Spain and Brazil have their own version of the Ziggy on location scenes which is filmed in their country and the kids speak their language, but Spain also included the Action Time! Ziggy scenes as well as the Ziggy on location scenes which made the episodes a bit longer than other countries. The Action time! version of the episode picnic time was changed to "let's warm up" and is based on warming up but still has the same character segments (apart from Ziggy) from the episode "picnic time"
