Trivia

Initially, Magnús Scheving (a multi-awarded, skillful acrobat) performed all of Sportacus' various leaps & jumps himself, but when he tore a muscle while filming in summer of 2007, Nick Jr. executives immediately stepped in and insisted on bringing professional stunt men to perform some of the character's biggest stunts, or they'd pull the plug on the show altogether. Scheving claimed it was a minor mishap that only took him a few days to recover from and wanted to keep doing his thing as normal, but as he said during an interview "they're the ones with the money", so he gave in to prevent the show from being scrapped.

Goofs

Sportacus' reactions to the sugar meltdown, which he gets causally during the show, e.g. when eating a sugar apple, is different from episode to episode. In some episodes he can't move and the other characters have to help him getting the Sportscandy (aka fruit) into his mouth but in other cases he is able to move his arm to grab it himself.

User Reviews

Great show. Watch this with your kids...
5 October 2004 | by TerminalMadnessSee all my reviews

The best part about this show? At the beginning of every show they encourage children to get up and dance every time they sing.

I watch this with my nephew, and sometimes I watch it by myself because this is a great show. It's fun, exciting, sweet, hilarious and it teaches children to get up and exercise and play along with the show.

My nephew loves Sportacus and I do too, because he's a very positive role model for kids. He muscular, a great athlete and he flips constantly, plus when he fights Robbie Rotten there's no violence, just a lot of comedy that kids will love.

There's the perfect mixture of bright colors, puppets, comedy, drama, and great characters for boys and girls to enjoy. Robbie Rotten is hilarious, Stephanie is adorable, the puppets are cute, and Sportacus is very cool, not to mention the music is a lot of fun to listen to.

You can watch this with your kids without wanting to vomit, so watch this with all of your children because its one great time, I'm a fan.
