Nick Jr.'s unique children's television series LAZY TOWN offers a fun and educational way to get kids off the couch and into a lifetime of physical fitness. Produced in Iceland and aimed at preschool children, the innovative series stresses the importance of nutrition and exercise through a fun mix of human actors and puppets against a colorful, computer-animated background. The series centers around a pink-haired 8-year-old named Stephanie (Julianna Rose Mauriello) as she helps athletic superhero Sportacus (series creator Magnus Scheving) battle lazy villain Robbie Rotten (Stefan Karl Stefansson) in lighthearted adventures. Along the way, Sportacus teaches kids healthy eating habits while zany musical numbers encourage active participation for an easy approach to exercise. This volume introduces the action-packed series with the special double-length episode "New Superhero."

I think it's great to get the dvds if you don't like iTunes.
The lazytown dot com website sells the physical dvds new but in PAL format (England)
I noticed some idiots selling these dvds for insane prices, don't let it get you down. New dvds can still be purchased, just no longer in the US. The iTunes versions are about 300+ mb per episode. You can always use an external hard drive or one 8Gb thumb drive will hold volume one, about 15Gb for both volumes.
You could download volume one to an 8Gb iPod or iPhone or iPad, or just download to an 8Gb flash drive. Be sure and format your flash drive in Fat32 so it works on your HDTV Usb port. Crazy hunh?, you can have the entire lazytown collection on a flash drive the size of your finger and your kids can't scratch it. If you're really cool you can connect your HDTV via Wifi and stream lazytown from your reclining easy chair from a router hub with Wifi. Have your kids grab you a Coke from the fridge and wah lah , you are lazily watching lazytown drinking and eating sweets. Be sure and make the kids eat fruits and vegetables so they stay healthy.
The show's main premises are to establish healthy lifestyles for children.
Soon Stephanie and Sportacus have the residents on the right track to good health, exercise, and fruit and vegetable consumption, punctuated by upbeat pep rally type songs and spine bending dance steps.
This does not meet the approval of the town bad guy, Robbie Rotten, who spends his days plotting the undoing of Sportacus, with various ingenious and despicable schemes.
Previously only viewable on television, this DVD allows kids to watch favorite episodes over and over again, and introduces a double-length episode where Sportacus is given a forced vacation while Stephanie takes on the Superhero role. There are two previously aired episodes on the DVD - one where Robbie dons a dinosaur disguise to scare Sportacus, and one where he disguises himself as a doctor and makes them stop eating vegetables.
With a combination of real actors and puppets, this is a very positive family oriented show, advocating good living habits, mixed with song, dance and humor. Highly recommended for anyone with kids between 2 and 6 years old, even though many adults may find it a little cheesy.
