Episode Summary

Stephanie and the kids are having fun playing pirates. When Uncle Milford finds what they are doing, he tells them the story of a real pirate that once sailed in LazyTown --- Rottenbeard. Rottenbeard did whatever he wanted and spread laziness to every home until a hero arrived to stop him, as recorded in the LazyTown Big Book of History. Rottenbeard tried to get rid of everything healthy, but could never destroy the famous LazyTown stone, so he stole it and buried it. When Robbie Rotten learns of this ancient treasure, he decides to dress up as a pirate and create a fake LazyTown stone. He buries the stone and sets sail with the kids on a fake treasure hunt. The kids are excited by the chance to be real pirates at first, but soon discover the pirate life isn't all that they thought it was.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Some have noted that during the balloon "sword fight" scene at the end of the episode, Sportacus knocks Robbie over a wall and splashing can be heard. This would imply that he fell into water, but when he reappears, he's completely dry. However, the sound of the water was likely added for effect as part of the pirate theme and there was no actual water.

    • During the scene where the fake stone is unveiled, Stephanie starts to walk away. She is seen walking for about three seconds and then the camera cuts to Sportacus, who starts to run after her. When he does this, Stephanie is nowhere in sight. She is then seen sitting on a bench. Based on the time taken, she should not have been able to reach the bench that quickly.

      Stephanie: All right, I'll dig.
      Ziggy: You better dig.

    • Robbie: (as Rottenbeard) I've got me a map. I've got me a shovel. But I need a pack of puny pirates, such as yourselves to help me find the booty.
      Ziggy: What did you just say?
      Robbie: (as himself) I need someone to help me find the treasure!

    • Robbie: (as Rottenbeard) Are ye real buccaneers? If it's real treasure ye be seeking ye be sailing under the flag of Rottenbeard the Pirate.

    • Robbie: So if someone, meaning me, made a fake stone, they'd have to do whatever I wrote on it. (laughs gleefully) Time to put my skills as a chiseler to good use. Ah! Ah! Now all I have to do is break it to match the other half. (laughs meanly) Ah! (He falls over, but the stone splits just as he wanted it to.) A perfect match. And now to go bury it somewhere those kids will find it. Ha ha ha! Disguise time!

    • Mayor Meanswell: (reading from the LazyTown Big Book of History) A pirate named Rottenbeard wandered through LazyTown, spreading his rottenness to every home and taking whatever he wanted.

    • Robbie: Those rotten kids. Noise, noise, noise. Nothing but noise! Ugh. (groans) Ew! Ugh! Uh! Eee. Ahh. Ha ha ha. (finds several sets of earmuffs) For trucks, jets, rockets. Ah, for kids. (He puts them on, but then removes them because they're not working.) Nothing is working! Oh ho ho ho!

    • Trixie: I have a hook.
      Ziggy: She has a hook.
      Stingy: Okay, uh, you're in charge.
      Sportacus: Good luck, guys. But don't sink too many ships.

    • Sportacus: I thought Stephanie was in real trouble. No wonder my crystal didn't beep.
      Trixie: Yargh! We be playin' pirates, Sportacus!

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode features the first time that the kids are taken hostage by Robbie. When they find the real LazyTown stone, Robbie decides that his plan isn't working and simply ties them all up. Sportacus rescues them as they give him advice from the LazyTown Book of History.

    • Pixel does not appear in this episode.

    • Robbie and the kids (except for Pixel, who does not appear) perform "You Are a Pirate," Track 10 on the LazyTown album. Robbie, in the guise of Rottenbeard, sometimes laughs over the singing.
