Anything but lazy -- it's exhausting! OK for kids.

I have loved this show since it came out back when I was in highschool

This came out back in the mid 2000's when I was in highschool. The characters creeped me out at first but I quickly got over it and found this show to be pretty darn good. BTW the show is called Lazytown because the bad guy Robbie Rotten wants to make it's inhabitants lazy by encouraging them to sit. He was there until Sporticus started encouring exercise with the new girl with the pink hair. I enjoyed it. Robbie's actor reminds Jim Carry for some reason.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (19 ):
Kids say (46 ):

Kids will like the acrobatic moves that Sportacus 10 busts out -- flipping throughout his spacecraft, jumping over any hurdle, and dancing with Stephanie. This enthusiasm isn't without its benefits. Kids might try to jump and flip the way Sportacus 10 does. The role modeling is also well-intended, but the show's fantasy style doesn't invite real learning to take place.

Parents might take advantage of the momentum generated by this program by turning off the television and getting active with their kids -- after all, that's what LazyTown is really all about.
