The last thing we bought from Iceland was the Sugarcubes featuring Bjork. We tried it out for a while, but it just wasn't working out. We ultimately had to return it.
Lazytown is what we bought with the store credit.
Conceptually, it isn't a bad show. It features a little girl with pink hair and her puppet friends. Cute enough, right.
There is also a sort of superhero guy who advises them to eat apples and vegetables and other healthy snacks.
The antagonist encourages them to eat junk food.
The antagonist sets traps for the little girl and her puppet friends.
The antagonist hides behind trees, dresses up in disguises and tries to capture them.
The antagonist is named Robbie Rotten. It took me about a month to realize his name wasn't Johnny Rotten. God Save The Queen.
What's even more frightening than some maniac hiding behind trees and luring children with promises of chocolate is the way he looks. Sort of a cross between an evil clown and Ben Stiller.
I've sat through a couple of episodes with The Bean and The Butterfly (who absolutely love the show). It's sort of like H.R. Puffinstuff except with a possible child predator.
So I ask this, Iceland, is it too late to get Bjork back?
