    Welcome to the LazyTown guide at TV.com. A place where you'll wanna stay --- forever!!!

    "LazyTown enhances preschoolers' kinesthetic skills and awareness of of healthful behaviors." --- Noggin show benefits description

    LazyTown is the laziest town you'll ever visit. Or at least, it would be, if the town grump, Robbie Rotten, had his way. Unfortunately for him, Stephanie, the mayor's vibrant pink-haired niece (played by Broadway's own Julianna Rose Mauriello), has come to LazyTown and she would rather have the kids outdoors playing sports with her than indoors playing video games all the time. She and her uncle enlist the help of Sportacus 10, a superhero with great athletic skills and abilities, who encourages the kids to get out and play, run around, dance or whatever else it takes to get their move on! Soon everyone's out joining Stephanie and Sportacus in all sorts of fun adventures including Stephanie's Uncle Milford (Mayor Meanswell to everyone else); Bessie Busybody, the town gossip; Ziggy, a cheerful kid who loves candy; Stingy, a seven-year-old who sometimes lets jealousy and selfishness get the best of him; Trixie, the smartest of the kids but she's also the most mischievous; and Pixel, an addictive video gamer and technology wiz.

    The only one not joining in on the fun is Robbie Rotten who fears that LazyTown is losing it's lazy reputation thanks to Sportacus. So, Robbie sets out to get rid of the blue-clad hero forever, or, at the very least, make him look like a fool. However, it's usually Rotten himself who looks the fool in the end.

    This hyper series features creator Magnus Scheving as Sportacus. Magnus, a silver medalist in the World Championships in aerobics and two-time European Champion in aerobics, is not only the star, writer and director of show, he's also the CEO, creator and co-founder of LazyTown Entertainment. LazyTown Entertainment was a company created in 1995 to promote healthy life for children through videos, books, games, sporting goods and much more. Nick Jr. turned to Magnus and LazyTown Entertainment to create a new series for the network and what they came up with was the energetic and colorful LazyTown. The show features CGI, puppetry and animatronic work from award winning members of The Jim Henson Company in New York, The Creature Shop in London and the Neal Scanlan Studio in London whose combined credits range from family fare like Babe, 101 Dalmatians and The Witches to more adult fare such the Academy Award winning The English Patient. The show consists of a cast and crew from both America and Iceland and the program is now a massive success in both countries.

    Character Guide:

    Stephanie - Stephanie is the niece of Mayor Milford Meanswell. She is a pink-haired girl performed by Julianna Rose Mauriello and is one of only three characters on the show represented in human form. Stephanie is an athletic dancer and enjoys games of all sorts. She is generally sociable and has made friends with all of the kids in LazyTown.

    Sportacus - Sportacus is a superhero from the north. Summoned by Stephanie with the help of her uncle, the Sportacus seen on the program is known as Sportacus 10, although there have been others in the past. Performed by show creator Magnús Scheving , Sportacus is generally only referred to as "Sportacus 10" in early episodes. Sportacus lives in a large airship that flies above LazyTown. His airship includes a number of useful gadgets, including a smaller version of the ship itself known as the "sky chaser." Sportacus is known for amazing superhero moves, including flipping and jumping. Sportacus eats only healthy foods and gets to sleep at 8:08 P.M. each night. He wears a crystal on his chest that sounds an alert whenever someone in town is in trouble.

    Robbie Rotten - The show's "villain," Robbie is a nemesis straight from the old-school. Performed by Stefán Karl Stefánsson, Robbie enjoys dressing up in disguises, laughing meanly and hatching sinister schemes. Robbie is incredibly lazy, but will expend surprising amounts of energy in his quest to keep the kids of town lazy and rid the town of Sportacus forever!!! Robbie's plans often succeed on a temporary basis, but are generally quickly unraveled. He has been described by the kids as a "big softie." Robbie loves sleeping and he also is fond of eating cake. Whereas Sportacus oversees the town from above, Robbie lurks in an underground lair. He uses extendable binoculars planted throughout the town to spy on the inhabitants. Though often reclusive and antisocial, Robbie sometimes feels the need to be included in the town's activities and becomes indignant when he is left out. He also often talks to himself and sings songs about his plots.

    Mayor Milford Meanswell - Stephanie's uncle and one of several puppet characters on the program. Performed by David Matthew Feldman, Meanswell, generally "means well" for the town, but isn't always a very effective mayor. He can be indecisive at times and often seems willing to go along with Robbie when he dresses up as an authority figure. Meanswell is fond of Miss Busybody and will do anything to get on her good side.

    Miss Bessie Busybody - Miss Busybody generally does not like children very much, but also largely keeps to herself. She can be very demanding at times, but Mayor Meanswell seems to dote on her.

    Ziggy - Stephanie's best friend, along with Trixie. Ziggy is a generally hyper boy who loves candy. He is learning a lot about healthy habits from Sportacus. Ziggy can be bold and daring at times and often dreams of being a superhero. Ziggy is sometimes known to fib. He is generally a good friend to Stephanie and will often support her when nobody else will.

    Trixie - Stephanie manages to get over Trixie's initial meanness and become friends with her. Trixie often refers to Stephanie as "Pinky." She is rather sporty too, but also sometimes enjoys doing "girly" things.

    Pixel - Pixel is a wizard when it comes to computers and electronics. Pixel is learning to enjoy outdoor sports and fun, but brings his own unique twist to them. Pixel fits in well with the group of kids, despite his tendency to sometimes play too long on his computer.

    Stingy - True to his name, Stingy is somewhat greedy and selfish. This doesn't stop him, however, from being friends with the other LazyTown kids. Stephanie and the others are helping him to see that sometimes sharing and playing with friends is better. Because of his selfish nature, Stingy is sometimes an easy target for Robbie's schemes. Stingy is rather musical and plays the harmonica and other instruments.

    Show Theme:

    Welcome to LazyTown A place where you'll wanna stay You'll meet Robbie with his rotten plan. And Sportacus saving the day. Stephanie is new in town And soon she and Ziggy are friends. With Pixel, Stingy, and Trixie too They're gonna have a blast together

    Go, go, go get up LazyTown It's a start of a brand new day Things are upside down here in LazyTown. Adventure's just a moment away.

    LazyTown was a part of Nick Jr.'s programming lineup, but has now come to an end. If you live in the United States and want to be able to see LazyTown every day, tune into the Noggin network --- available on most cable and satellite providers as part of higher-tier programming packages or for an additional cost. Noggin, unfortunately, generally only airs episodes from the first season of the program. Don't live in the United States? LazyTown airs on CBeebies and Nick Jr. in the U.K. Check listings in all areas to find out when you can catch the program, as airtimes are variable and may change with little notice.

    Looking for more ways to interact with the show? You can now find the program available on several DVDs, featuring bonus music videos. LazyTown toys and other merchandise are also now available.

    LazyTown once aired on weekends on CBS, but is no longer a part of the programming lineup, as CBS has replaced weekend Nick Jr. airings with "KOL's Saturday Morning Slumber Party," featuring mainly DiC programming.moreless

    Max and Ruby

    Max and Ruby

    Follow
    Nickelodeon
    In creator Rosemary Wells's own words, she explains the show's goal:

    "Max and Ruby celebrates the relationship between Ruby and her younger brother, Max, and the universal nature of sibling relationships. It's as common an experience to many childhoods as Band-aids and birthdays. And what makes the relationship in the series compelling is that I've added salt and pepper to it, instead of sugar."

    The residents of the show's universe are all rabbits which children (and even adults!) will find quite adorable. The superb animation appears to have been done on computer (not three dimensional, though) and the artwork itself is very, very well done. The characters' expressions, especially Max's mischievous look, and behaviors are worth watching!

    Interestingly, we never see the parents of Max and Ruby, making it look like they live by themselves in a big house. This has come under criticism by many parents. However, their neighbor-grandmother and other adults do make frequent appearances.

    Rosemary Wells has created many books and shows, such as Timothy Goes to School among others.

    Cast

    Max. An enthusiastic and determined three-year-old who speaks no more than a few words each show. Often at odds with his sister mainly because she doesn't understand him or doesn't want him to do some certain things (such as making noises). He tends to get things his way at the end, though!

    Ruby. Max's seven-year-old sister, a very smart, goal-oriented and responsible (albeit bossy) young lady. Almost in every episode, Ruby is frustrated by Max getting into messes or disobeying her, but she displays a tremendous amount of patience while she tries to set him straight.

    Grandma. Grandmother of Max and Ruby, she lives next-door and often pays them a visit, or vice versa. A c grandmother both in personality and appearance: kind-hearted, generous, crow's feet, and a sweet smile.

    Louise. Best friend of Ruby's, they have a lot of things in common, including being related to curious little boys. Louise is in Bunny Scouts along with Ruby and Valerie.

    Morris. Louise's cousin who is a year or so younger than Max. Appears in very few episodes. (Thanks, Kerry & her daughter for pointing out that Morris is a cousin, not a brother of Louise's.)

    Valerie. Another friend of Ruby's as well as Louise's. She wears glasses and is an intelligent, funny girl. She's also in the Bunny Scouts.

    Martha. One of Ruby's friends and a Bunny Scout, although she appeared in only two episodes or so. Didn't speak much.

    Roger Piazza. Even though the only words he utters are "uh-huh" and "nuh-uh", he is perceived as the cool kid by Ruby and her friends. The "jock" type of boy, he's several months older than Ruby. ("He's seven and a half years old!" gushes Ruby in an episode.)

    The Huffington Family. The family is composed of sweet-tooth Mr. Huffington, friendly Mrs. Huffington, and their adorable kid Baby Huffington. They're well-known locals/neighbors, and Mrs. Huffington often asks Ruby to babysit Baby Huffington.

    Candi. She runs a local candy store and is very generous with candies.

    Rosalinda. The owner of the town's gift shop. Always willing to lend a paw.

    Bunny Scout Leader. (Anyone know her name?) The Bunny Scout Leader guides the girls through the activities to earn their badges. Yes, it's the bunny version of the Girls Scout.

    Mr. Piazza. Roger's father. He owns and runs the grocery store which Roger sometimes helps out at.

    Katie. Owner of a restaurant; she's also the waitress. Not a frequent character and played a role in Ruby's Surprise Party episode.moreless

    Astonishing X-Men is a motion comic series developed from Marvel Comics's Astonishing X-Men story arc, "Gifted", written by Joss Whedon and drawn by John Cassaday, which follows the reintroduction of the home team of the X-Men, comprised now of Cyclops, the White Queen, Beast, Wolverine, and Shadowcat. Shadowcat doesn't meet eye-to-eye with the White Queen, especially since their bad blood stems from the time the telepathic diamond Queen tried to kill Shadowcat and her friends. They work begrudgingly work together when the announcement of the creation of a "mutant cure" hits the news. The cure, developed by an alien overlord, Ord, with the experimentation on a resurrected and drugged metallic formed Colossus, holds the threat to decimate the mutant population. Colossus, otherwise known as Piotr Rasputin, had died in a sacrifice to release an airborne cure of a mutant-focused virus. The still at-odds X-Men set out to free Colossus and to find out just why Ord would travel all that way from his home planet, the Breakworld, to destroy mutants. Astonishing X-Men was adapted by Marvel Comics new graphic way of storytelling, holding onto the panel-by-panel style but with moving graphics, sounds, and explosive dynamics. Whedon and Cassaday's run on Astonishing X-Men was awarded an Eisner award for its definitely astounding treatment of one of the best X-Men runs in a decade.moreless
