Sportacus2
Sportacus
is a fictional character from the children's television show LazyTown. He is the main protagonist in LazyTown, alongside Stephanie.

His name is a portmanteau 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 in the LazyTown episode "Welcome to LazyTown"Edit

In the television show, the role of Sportacus is played by Magnús Scheving, founder and creator of the LazyTown franchise.

Sportacus encourages the Lazy Town kids to eat fruits and veggies, (which he calls "sports candy") and play outside instead of sitting around indoors. He wants to make sure Lazy Town 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 Lazy Town 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 Lazy Town children get into trouble. He is patient, kind, always understanding and does not tell the children in Lazy Town what not to do. He prefers to lead by example.

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

History of the characterEdit

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 air ship. Sportacus owns a magical crystal that sits on his costume and glows when the Lazy Town 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 Lazy Town what not to do. He prefers to lead by example.
