Bilingual is Better

Few shows have the ability to get you up and running like LazyTown can.  And that´s the whole point.  The high energy that comes from the music, the colors and the adrenaline-filled pace of the show can be addictive for little girls and boys.

The friends at V-me sent me a dvd of the Spanish-language version of LazyTown´s first episode “Bienvenidos a LazyTown” to watch and review.  My girl, now 2 1/2 years, happily gave up her normally scheduled dose of other V-me shows (“Las Tres Mellizas Bebés” and “Los Pies Mágicos de Franny”) to watch this new show in her repertoire.  The result:  lots of jumping, dancing and singing.  Precisely what LazyTown wants you to do-watch them, but not be a couch potato at it.

LazyTown is a place where kids only wanted to eat candy, play video games and stare at screens.  Sound somewhat familiar?  Until the mayor´s pink-haired niece, Stephanie, came to visit and couldn´t stand that no one wanted to, or even knew, how to have fun and play outdoors.  She enlisted the help of Spartacus, a very athletic and moustachy superhero, who comes to the rescue to teach the LazyTown kids how to be lazy no more and adopt healthy living habits.  Of course, there´s a villain in the story; his name is Robbie Rotten and he will try to stop these crazy health freaks from teaching the kids that carrots are yummier than a chocolate-chip cookie and that hitting a real ball feels better than swinging to one with a controller in the air.  He always fails, and LazyTown is a more fun and more healthy place to live in.  With los of dancing. And pink.
