Lazy Town! We have been watching an ungodly amount of Noggin in this house lately and Lazy Town was recently added to the line up. Bizzaro, disturbing, weird and strange are a few words to describe the entire Lazy Town cast. The show is Icelandic, which explains a few things. I’m not sure why, but it just does. Before we found out the show was foreign-made we sat around wondering how this thing was pitched and sold to the TV network. Did they bring in these funky looking childlike animated mannequins for a demo? And then roll out their villain character, which is the freakiest character on the show (possibly freakiest on all of TV!)? I would think a sinister man that is part human and part prosthetic would have any American TV exec seeing red. This is a channel for preschoolers ages 1.5-4. I figure they said “Hell if it’s a hit in Iceland! And the merchandising possibilities $$$$…we’ll be rich! Hahahhahahha (evil TV exec laugh). Anyway this show is weird. Any other creepy contenders?
