* AccidentalInnuendo:
** Then there's the scene during "Master of Disguise" where Robbie sneaks up on Stingy, a 6 year old boy, while singing "You walk right by me, not knowing that I'm slimy!" complete with a [[MemeticMolester creepy predator-esque]] expression on his face.
* AccidentalNightmareFuel: The whole show. One critic described it as a "[[Creator/FranzKafka kafkaesque]] nightmare of a traumatized child".
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** According to [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/18.55409#404534 this thread]], Robbie Rotten is a TragicHero, as the series actually takes place AfterTheEnd and his goal to keep the kids inside is actually to protect them from radiation. Sort of Jossed in "Sportacus Save The Toys" when Sportacus visits France and China. Both countries seem to be fine.
** The fandom is known for its interpretations of character backstories. Fanfiction writers often give Robbie Rotten a tragic past. A few diehards have created interpretations of the mythical "Number Nine", mentioned only in one episode. A lot of fan theories revolve around Nine being Sportacus' father.
** [[http://www.worldofcrap.co.uk/lazy-town---defending-freedom-and-cake.html This article]] argues that Robbie Rotten is the OnlySaneMan and that trying to let children play and eat sweets is actually preferable to Sportacus' enforcement of brutal physical torture and diet of seeds.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[AwesomeMusic/LazyTown See the sub-page]].
* CriticalResearchFailure: In ''You Are A Pirate," Stephanie sings that "If you love to sail the sea, you are a pirate!" Uh, Stephanie? Ever heard of this thing called a sailor?
* EarWorm: '''Every single song.'''

* EnsembleDarkHorse: Robbie Rotten is considered the funniest character by many. The fact the show dedicates quite a bit of time and effort to his plans and props (more than to any other character, even Sportacus) supports this.
* HilariousInHindsight: "Cooking by the Book" is hilariously similar to the later "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOVDu7etQlc Cupcakes]]" song from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Even funnier is that Pinkie Pie is piling on the candy!
* HoYay: There is so much Sportacus/Robbie slash out there that it seems to outnumber any other kind. And it doesn't come from nowhere either: one episode had Robbie falling asleep and happily murmur "Hello, Sportacus."
* MemeticMutation: "You are a Pirate" and "Cooking by the Book" (and its Lil' Jon mix). Also, Stephanie herself used to be a major internet meme on ''Website/FourChan'', where she was usually photoshopped to be shown... [[UnusualEuphemism working out]] with a [[{{Squick}} Pedo Bear]].
** As well as, within the "You are a Pirate" song, a line about "[[AccidentalInnuendo precious booty]]."
** Julianna Rose Mauriello (Stephanie's actress) turned 18 in 2009; the internet as a whole had much rejoicing, if all of the posts of "[[TheJailBaitWait She's legal now!]]" are to be believed.
* ParentService: One word: Sportacus.
** And to an extent, Robbie Rotten and his ''*ahem*'' package.
** Then there's Stephanie, who is supposed to be eight, but her male fans only see the [[DawsonCasting teenage]] actress playing her.
* PeripheryDemographic: A lot of moms and teen siblings are as fond of the show as the kids it's aimed at, due in no small part to the 'talents' of the human actors (yes, all three).
** Also, stoners.
** Several years ago, a portion of the ''StarlightExpress'' fan community became a bit of a periphery demographic for the original ''Latibær'' stage shows.
* PortmanteauCoupleName: The fandom has come up with portmanteau names for the show's two most popular pairings: [=SportaSteph=] for Sportacus/Stephanie, and [=SportaRobbie=] for Sportacus/Robbie.
* RootingForTheEmpire: Who ''doesn't'' want to see Robbie win for once?
* SelfFanservice: Oh, the things the fandom does to Sportacus and Robbie Rotten... The extreme athleticism of the former and... ''suspicious bulge'' of the latter may be bordering on ParentService. Either way, the PeripheryDemographic has made some... ''interesting'' things of both of them. And, from an entirely different quarter, Stephanie.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped
* TearJerker: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4CATfNUBj8 We Will be friends]]
* UncannyValley: Some people find the puppet characters creepy. Also: Robbie's face looks like it's made of plastic.
** Robbie's [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Purple Dinosaur]] Disguise in "Cry Dinosaur" is pretty creepy as well. Thank god he kept [[CrowningMomentOfFunny bumping into things]].
