Sportacus is the main protagonist in LazyTown. He is played by Magnus Scheving, an Icelandic man who also created the series. He was next in line for the autobot matrix of leadership, he went by the name Ultra Magnus at the time, but Hot Rod stole his idea, so Ultra Magnus went on in a human form to create lazytown.Sportacus is a fictional character from the children's television show LazyTown. His name is aportmanteau of the ancient figure Spartacus and the word sport, which represents his athleticism. Sportacus humbly describes himself as a "slightly above-average hero", though his friends have a higher opinion of him, calling him a "superhero".

Sportacus encourages the LazyTown kids to eat fruit and vegetables (which he calls "sports candy") and play outside instead of sitting around indoors. He wants to make sure LazyTown is happy, and knows that they have to be healthy and fit if they want to be happy. He is opposed by the sinister (yet perhaps equally energetic) Robbie Rotten, who seeks to return LazyTown to its former state: a lazy town. Sportacus is so engaged in his life of physical activity that he does gymnastics just to get from place to place—even doing acrobatic flips just to get from one side of his kitchen table to the other—and the children have to instruct him on how to relax.

Sportacus owns a magical crystal that sits on his costume and glows when the LazyTown children get into trouble. He is patient, kind, always understanding and does not tell the children in LazyTown what not to do. He prefers to lead by example.[1]

The large airship that floats above LazyTown is Sportacus' home. It has Sportacus' bed, food and other equipment.

History of the characterEditEdit

In the original Icelandic play on which the television series was based, Áfram Latibær! (Go LazyTown!) in 1996, Sportacus was an elf called Íþróttaálfurinn (The Athletic Elf) who possessed magical powers. His costume consisted of a navy-blue tunic, baggy green trousers and a large burnt umber hat. He also had a large, thick, blonde moustache and matching goatee beard.

In the second play, Glanni Glæpur í Latabæ (Robbie Rotten in LazyTown), Sportacus' character became a lot closer to the current version. He traveled around in a hot air balloon.

He is the real-life embodiment of the action figure every kid dreams of becoming. Fit, agile and an amazing acrobat with lightning fast style. Sportacus is always moving, flipping through the air and landing on his feet.

Sportacus loves to use everyday items in outrageous ways, often skipping the ordinary when he can do something with flair. It's no wonder he lives in an AirShip.

Sportacus owns a magical crystal that sits on his costume and glows when the LazyTown kids get into trouble. It keeps him quite busy actually. So to be able to charge his batteries, Sportacus always goes to bed at 8:08.

Sportacus is patient, kind, always understanding and does not tell the kids in LazyTown what not to do. He prefers to lead by example.
