* AccidentalInnuendo: The scene during "Master of Disguise" where Robbie sneaks up on Stingy, an 8 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.
** Ms. Busybody gets a face full of sunscreen in "Sportacus Saves the Toys" when the Mayor angrily slams his fist on the bottle.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdVSLmFJDmc MMM MMMM Creamy!]]
* AccidentalNightmareFuel:
** The whole show. One critic described it as a "[[Creator/FranzKafka kafkaesque]] nightmare of a traumatized child".
** In one episode, Robbie disguised himself as the mayor, and ended up ''looking exactly like him,'' even though he's human and the mayor is a puppet.
* AdaptationDisplacement: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] - Even if not a lot of people knew that ''[=LazyTown=]'' was based on [[Theatre/{{Latibaer}} a play and its sequel]], said plays are [[ColbertBump gradually increasing in popularity]].
** Even ''fewer'' people have heard of the original children's book the first play was based on.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: An insane amount of these center around Robbie Rotten.
** 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://worldofcrap.weebly.com/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.
** Another fan theory suggests that Robbie Rotten was one of the former superheroes of [=LazyTown=], who gave up because he was frustrated with the kids reverting back to their old ways every time (that is, until Sportacus came along), so he just gave up and encouraged them to be lazy out of spite whilst being the town's villain for his own amusement.
*** Another theory similar to this one poses that Robbie was one of the original heroes, before Sportacus (ten) and the mysterious Number Nine; after all, the first of the heroes would be Number One.
** Stefan Karl did a Reddit [=AMA=] in 2016. One question was "Way deep down inside, what does Robbie '''really''' think about the residents of [=LazyTown=]?" Stefan's response? [[IJustWantToHaveFriends "I wish I could be their friend."]] That's just...[[TearJerker damn]].
* EarWorm: '''Every single song.'''
** Especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLMJpHihykI You Are A Pirate]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8hVXUVnLgk Secret Agent Zero.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYrkQL1bX4A It's a piece of cake to bake a pretty cake!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BK8zQV8MXg Dippity Dee, it's only me! Boopity Boo, I scared you!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SPGxZbAsbw The genie song.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZWO6m2GOF4 Hey! Hey! Sing it together! No one's lazy in LazyTown!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQqhW_ZUQ00 I am a Prince.]]
** The original Icelandic shows gave us the extremely catchy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VgcXBLDZDY Megabæt]].
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfYnvDL0Qcw WE ARE NUMBER ONE, HEY!]]
* {{Fanon}}: It's fairly popular in fanfiction to give Robbie some sort of magical heritage to go with Sportacus's (implied) elven heritage. Making Robbie at least part [[TheFairFolk fae]] is usually the go-to suggestion.
** It's also fairly common to make the original incarnations of Sportacus and Robbie-Íþróttaálfurinn and Glanni Glæpur respectively-some sort of relative to the more well known incarnations-father, brother, cousin, what have you.
* 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!
** And then, in a season 6 episode of MLP, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARBo-tp1JoM this]]'' happened.
** Near the beginning of "We Are Number One", Robbie Rotten says "this is going down in history". [[MemeticMutation Little did he know]]...
* 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: As just one example, one episode had Robbie falling asleep and happily murmur "Hello, Sportacus."
* JustHereForGodzilla: A lot of people watch the show just for Robbie Rotten and his schemes.
** A good portion of the older PeripheryDemographic watches it just for Stingy out of the belief that he gets some of the funniest lines.
* MemeAcknowledgment:
** The official [=LazyTown YouTube=] channel posted [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uN-UUeh-yA their own variant]] of "We Are Number One" on December 9, 2016, with promises to release the instrumental version. Not only did they do that the song's entire stems were released, as well as the song's [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original lyrics]].
** Even better, Stefan Karl (Robbie's actor) himself [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3pf7HCbtXo performed a live-reenactment]] of the song on December 11th, 2016. With the supporting actors, no less.
* {{Moe}}: Stephanie. Pink clothes, pink hair and perky as hell? Yep.
* 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). Enough so that it airs on Boomerang in the UK.
** Also, [[WatchItStoned stoners]].
** Several years ago, a portion of the ''Theatre/StarlightExpress'' fan community became a bit of a periphery demographic for the original ''Latibær'' stage shows.
** People who like memes too much.
* 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?
* SacredCow: Stefan Karl Stefansson, the actor who plays Robbie Rotten. If him playing a near-universally-liked fan favorite, getting some of the show's best songs, embracing the show's memes hasn't done it yet and being [[MeanCharacterNiceActor a very nice person outside of the show]] haven't elevated him to this status, then the revelation of his cancer [[TearJerker entering stage 4]] has certainly done it.
* 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: Eat healthy and try to move around every once in a while.
* SpecialEffectFailure: In many shots, the thick, black strings used to hold the puppets' arms up can be seen.
** A rare auditory example. If you listen closely to the intro of "We Are Number One", you can hear Robbie's fingers hitting the plastic on the "saxophone". It doesn't even look like he's even playing it.
* UncannyValley: Some people find the puppet characters creepy. Also: Robbie's face looks like it's made of plastic.[[note]]Robbie's makeup job is actually part plastic (well latex) - the chin and eyebrow ridges are latex prosthetics.[[/note]] Robbie seems to have been specifically designed to make people unable to tell whether he's one of the human characters or one of the puppets!
** They also have distance shots, and to have the puppets in them, they have to resort to using people in costumes. It's so jarring seeing these normally small puppets suddenly be the size of Stephanie.
** The original [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4nnIx-ZdQo Wit puppets used in the show's preproduction]]. Some fans argue they're [[UptoEleven even creepier looking than the final ones]]
** The puppets are a ''lot'' more creepy in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MrqT0nFN2Q the 2003 test pilot]]. In the actually very well-drawn 2D storyboard art shown, the characters actually look pretty adorable... until we see them as puppets.
** Robbie's [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Purple Dinosaur]] Disguise in "Cry Dinosaur" is pretty creepy as well. Thank god he kept [[CrowningMomentOfFunny bumping into things]].
