*National Parenting Publication Award (NAPPA): Silver Winner 2012* Lazytown encourages kids to get up, get active and have fun! Stephanie comes to live in LazyTown and meets a zany mix of townspeople, including the world's laziest super-villain, Robbie Rotten. Fortunately for Stephanie, LazyTown is also under the watchful eye of Sportacus, an athletic, super-fit, hero, who runs, jumps, flips and flies to the rescue in his futuristic AirShip - he always manages to save the day and to help the kids of LazyTown foil Robbie's latest lazy schemes.

This appears to be a repackaging effort by NCircle. These were originally issued on other multiple LazyTown DVD's offered by Nickleodeon several years ago.
I took a chance on this DVD because I did not know what was going to be on it. My daughter likes it just the same. But, in the future, I would like to know exactly what episodes will be on each DVD before I pre-order again.
Widescreen versions, English language.
The cast and the visuals and music are all enchanting. LazyTown was recorded in a custom-designed studio for incorporating live actors, masked actors, puppets, props, and the animated backgrounds. Very energetic and all synchronized perfectly.
This DVD has 3 episodes, with no menu. The "next chapter >|" button on your remote will advance to the beginning of the next episode. There are no credits at the end of each episode: Robbie Rotten has the ending scene, and the next episode starts. After I inserted the DVD it played the warning, other brief product ads, then the program of 3 consecutive episodes began.
The DVD has no captions, which is an awful shame for a 2012 PBS Kids Sprout affiliated DVD, or for any company. I hope NCircle Entertainment sees this review. Missing subtitles, no menus, 3 random episodes per DVD package: these are all negatives on the re-issuing of LazyTown. You should be doing better. Thanks for the widescreen versions, however there is no DVD Content technical listing on the back of the box, or anywhere, just a note of 75 minutes long. The box gives the "Stories included" episode titles.
The 52 regular episodes of seasons 1 & 2 will cost over $120.00 at the rate of 3 episodes per DVD @ 6.99 each if you want the beautiful widescreen episodes.
Welcome to LazyTown (Episode 1-01), Dr. Rottenstein (1-11), and Sports Day (1-03).
"This will always be a cult classic series thanks to it's humor, series 3 & 4 aren't nearly as good since they changed the actress for Stephanie, but it's still awesome. I'm glad I got this DVD when it first came out for 6.99, but now in recent times, I wouldn't pay $20-50."
I have to add in my own note: I have caught portions of LazyTown many, many times while at my mother's house, and always felt this show to be wonderfully entertaining in a visual sense. Out of all the children shows I have sampled over the years, I must say that LazyTown is one of my own high recommendations.
Seems my review made it past censors, so here goes more info. Season 3 in 2013 is now up on the lazytown site (just use the name). I hope amazon gets this available on its cloud service. I like the new actor Chloe, she's got a great future ahead for her. Michelle Obama did a spot with Sportacus ! (see it on the official site)
LazyTown is not the same with the new girl. My youngest sister keeps re-watching the old episodes with Julianna Mauriello and she tells me the songs aren't catchy like the first two seasons.
The series is actually quite entertaining.........I love Robbie Rotten and can't wait to see how he is foiled by the host of characters! But, from time to time, even this man is shown to have a soft side.
Most importantly, the series focuses on certain values: for children to be happy and healthy, obey, learn and to be kind. All the live and puppet characters convey these things to the children.
As a person who grew up on "Howdy Doody" in the 1950's, I like that quality of this show......values are extremely important.
