Annoying

I honestly can't stand this show. My son tunes out when it comes on and I usually change the channel. While I like the emphasis on healthy eating and being active, I find the puppets kind of creepy looking and the acting of the actors obnoxious. The songs are cute, but just wait until your kid starts acting like Stingy. Bad role model.

We love this show.. I only wish that it had taken off in America like it has everywhere else. I somewhat agree that it is exhausting for Adults to watch but that is not what is geared toward. My son is 6 now and has been a fan since he was 3yrs old. I just hope what little we get to see of it here in the USA. doesn't leave us as well.

LazyTown not bad to watch

As a concerned parent I monitor what my children view on television. The show LazyTown is an interesting show but it unfortunately does not have the "get them active affect" on my four year old son. He is a very active, intelligent boy but when watching LazyTown in the morning I notice that he loses interest then asks when "GO Diego GO" (spin off from Dora the explorer) will be on. I belive that since the show is so fast paced and all of the cuts to the jumping and sport stunts by the show's hero "Sporticus" played by former 1992 Icelandic Aerobic Gymnastic Champion Magnus Sheving maybe to busy for a young mind to take in that would be dependant on your child. However the only other two human characters, "Stephanie" played by Julianna Rose Mauriello and "Robbie Rotten" the shows villian played by Stefan Karl Stefannson are fun to watch. Robbie Rotten is the bumbling comedic villian crying out for attention by trying to spoil the people of LazyTown's fun. Stephanie and the other town folk (all of who are puppets) with the help of Sporticus stop his attempts and along the way learn valueable lessons in things like teamwork, friendship, sharing etc. Music is a big part of the show, Stephanie's great voice and the other characters always seem to make time to stop and entertain us with new and original songs. In short if your looking for an innocent program for your kids that will entertain and teach values then LazyTown might be for your child, but don't be surprised if your child doesn't get up and tries to do backflips like the Main Character. - Always remember that learning life values always start with Mom and Dad.

Lazytown shows the benefits of diet and exercise in a fun and uniquely stylized way.

A great way to show kids that being active and eating well can be fun and worthwhile. Just as importantly though, this show is actually, incredibly well made. The set pieces and costumes are tremendous and the creativity of the creators makes it a joy to watch. I realize this site is mainly to describe the shows for their educational and moral value, but I think that it is equally important to not show our kids things that lack any sort of creativity. The imaginative and exciting world of Lazytown will not only enforce the idea of diet and exercise but do so with style.

HELP PLEASE!

My 4 yr old screams to turn this show off when it comes on. She hates it. I think it isn't great and I don't like the inappropriate outfits the little girl wears.

I Love It.

My daughter jumps up and dances and sings the songs and she is only 3. She tells me all the time that she is going to be Sporticus when she grows up.

My kids love Lazytown and so do I

My kids (almost 2 and 4) absolutely love Lazytown. My daughter (almost 2) will get up and dance everytime Sportacus and Stephanie dance. My son dances and asks for apples and carrots now, because Sportacus eats healthy food. He'll even refer to apples as "sports candy" and will repeat the message that exercise is important. Great show!

It's "OKAY".

I think this show has a good motive. Teaches kids the pluses of being active and healthy behaviors and the effects of not doing these things. But at the same time, I think this show is a little cheesey, even more so than most of the shows for this age. My daughter will watch it, but she would perfer something else. She is also a little bit scared of "Robbie Rotten" who is also a HORRIBLE actor, I can't even stand to look at him. hehe.

The greatest anime of all-time

LazyTown is one of the best anime ever. Plot is very good, characters have very good personalities, the songs are great too. Robbie Rotten has to be my favorite character and singer. Favorite songs are Master of Disguise, We Are Number One, etc. Parents, if you want your kids to watch this, please do. It's the best anime ever made next to Bee Movie.

The best against the laziness and for all the sports candy you want to eat...very healthy.

My nephew grews up with this programme. Even he dances many times the Bing Bang. Even in Boomerang Latin America is still airin' on overnights. Currently, Chloë Lang is the girl who plays Steph, and in every new song in the seasons 3 & 4, shows many dance steps. And of course, many costumes on Halloween are of this sporty guy for boys and this pinky hair girl on many girlies. This show is still airin' worldwide in many countries. But this show is one success. Many live shows are in development worldwide. Many songs are many kids' favourites. First aired on Nick Jr. since 2004 'til 2012, later aired on Sprout (from NBC Universal). In Latin America, Discovery aired the show since 2006 'til 2013, including an EXTRA show, with many cities visited by Ziggy, one of the characters, learne how much the kiddoes dance, makes sporty activities and many sports candy eats. And many segments with our friends including one newsreel with Bessie & Milford (camera by Steph) and many workout sporty activities by Sportacus and many kiddoes -- don't forget many smoothies and many healthy thingies with Steph & Trixie... also Steph learns many dance steps with any favourite song and at the end, many girlies with the same look as her, danced altogether. This is a very good example of a show who is still on air after more than 12 years worldwide. In the UK, Channel Five airs every weekend morning, formerly on the BBC (years 2004-2012). A classic. Go to lazytown.com and you can learn many games and activities worldwide.

Active, FUN, and healthy !!

Not everything in life is about ABC's. This show encourages healthy lifestyles, make exercise FUN, and teaches positive team work lessons. It is my toddlers favorite and holds his interest longer than most.

LazyTown

This show, in theory, is a great show for little ones. With that said, I feel that the relationship between Stephanie and Sportacus is a little strange. I also do not understand why they only have three people and the rest are puppets. My 14 month old son loves the dancing and music.
