Did You Know?


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.

Totally Refreshing!!
15 June 2005 | by ryanwe76See all my reviews

I find this show absolutely riveting!! Unlike all the other U.S.-inspired kids t.v. shows (which have led to one of the highest obesity rates in the worlds among kids), LazyTown is colorful, musical and exudes energy! The show and its creator should be applauded for what they are attempting to do: get kids off the couch. Anyone who reads adult themes or anything otherwise "creepy" needs to pull their head out of the sand and realize that, although saying "kids should turn off the t.v." is good in principle, kids more than likely WON'T turn off the t.v. I'd rather have my nephews and (someday my own) kids watching LazyTown instead of sitting there unmotivated by what they see. Just watching the show made me want to get up off the couch and do something.
