"Surprise Santa is a great DVD featuring four episodes, including one for Christmas. Created by Icelandic aerobic champion and entrepeneur Magnus Scheving (who plays Sportacus), LazyTown is a show promoting healthy living and cooperation.
LazyTown's Surprise Santa - It's Christmas Day in LazyTown! To celebrate, the kids are having a holiday party. But Robbie Rotten believes he didn't get an invitation, and that leaves him feeling extra rotten. So Robbie disguises himself as Santa, with plans to ruin Christmas for everyone via a huge snowball! Robbie Rotten really steals the show in this episode, especially with his hilarious rendition of a song called "Why It's Great to Be Bad". (My husband and I laugh every time we see this episode!)
Ziggy's Alien - Robbie tries to scare the kids with his latest disguise, a space alien. Instead of being afraid, they befriend him and try to return him to his home planet--with Ziggy along for the ride!
Miss Roberta - Stephanie is throwing a party. But the last time she did so, the kids were wild! To avoid a repeat of their poor behavior, "Miss Roberta" offers to teach the kids manners. Something smells rotten here...
The Laziest Town - Accordig to the town's energy meter, the energy in town is down to zero. If things don't change fast, LazyTown will be named the laziest town on earth!
This DVD is 103 minutes long and filled with the characteristic shenanigans of Robbie Rotten, heroism of Sportacus, and crazy adventures of townspeople like the Mayor, Pixel, Ziggy the sugar-holic, Stingy, etc. As always, Sportacus and the show LazyTown encourages healthy eating, exercise, and kindness--and features great up-tempo songs, too!
A very comical, witty DVD that's great for Christmas--or anytime! My husband, 7 year old son, and I love this DVD!"
Creator brings more lessons, including X-Mas fun!

"Magnus Scheving, creator of LazyTown, brings yet another exclusive DVD to the stores. This one deals with 2-exclusive episodes never before aired or seen (LazyTown's Surprise Santa; Ziggy's Alien), and also two bonus episodes (Miss Roberta; The Laziest Town) are on the disc as well. With the cast of Stephanie (Mauriello), Sportacus (Scheving), Robbie Rotten (Karl) and the rest of the cast of L.T., they bring more lessons and important info to the children, but also the adults. I love this show, and I hope that it continues to do as well as it is. Being one of the top shows in the world, who wouldn't want to watch."
Not just for Christmas

"This is the second DVD released with episodes from the popular show "Lazytown", with its leading human characters Sportacus (Magnús Scheving), Stephanie (Julianna Rose Mauriello) and that adorable villain Robbie Rotten (Stefán Karl Stefánsson). A favorite with kids from the USA, UK and homeland Iceland, the popularity can be measured by the fact that "Sportacus" and "Stephanie" costumes have been sold out for months due to heavy demand.
Just ask the rapidly growing young audience about the benefits of sports candy, exercise and healthy habits and you'll begin to understand the positive influence exerted by this over-the-top, energy driven, annoyingly cheerful show.
This DVD has four episodes - the first being the Surprise Santa, where Robby almost gets a heart during the Christmas season; the second involving an alien and a space ship (which scared my four year old at first); the third about having good manners (and how not to walk in high heels), and the last about saving the town from earning the title of "Laziest Town on Earth".
Highly recommended for kids and aerobics fans everywhere.
