New Fan Art: Pretty in Pink

Pretty in PinkThis week, whilst flipping channels on the TV, I came across a rather strange looking kid’s show called LazyTown, which featured a girl with incredibly bright pink hair. I’ve always liked characters with unusually-coloured hair, so I decided to find out more about it.

LazyTown, as it turns out, is a kid’s TV show from Iceland created by Magnus Scheving, an ex-gymnast, and its purpose is to promote an active lifestyle to young kids. The girl with pink hair is named Stephanie Meanswell and when she first arrives in LazyTown, she is surprised to find that the town’s kids (who are all puppets) are extremely lazy. But honestly, in a place with the word lazy in its name, what else could you expect? Anyway, Stephanie (initially played by actress Julianna Rose Mauriello and then by Chloe Lang) sets about curing the town’s of its laziness and in this task, she is aided by the superhero Sportacus (played by Scheving himself) and opposed by the villain Robbie Rotten.

Lazytown seems to have quite a large following, most likely due to its incredibly catchy song and dance routines. In fact, you can find a heap of official and fan-made LazyTown videos on Youtube. Although it doesn’t feature Stephanie, my personal favourite song is one called We Are Number One. It’s definitely worth a listen!😊

LEGO Dimensions Trailer for E3 Released!

A trailer for the 2016 wave of Lego Dimensions sets has just been released and there’s plenty of cool stuff in it! You can check the trailer out below.

As someone who grew up in the 80s, I’m really excited by the Gremlins, The Goonies and E.T. sets. And although I couldn’t see it the trailer, there are reports that Knight Rider will also have a set. I hope this is true, because I absolutely loved Knight Rider as a kid. But I don’t know how many (if any) of these sets I would actually try to get: the Lego Dimensions sets are a bit pricey, after all. As a matter of fact, I still haven’t got the Back to the Future set from last year. Back to the Future is one of my favourite movies of all time.[^_^]

I’ll definitely be writing some follow-up posts once these sets are released, but for the time being, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!

Happy Birthday Maureen!

December 30 is the birthday of the very lovely Maureen Flannigan. In case you don’t know, Maureen was the star of the American 80s’ sitcom Out of this world, where she played the role of Evie Garland, the daughter of an Earthling mother and an Antarean (i.e. alien) father, the result of which was that she inherited some really whacky powers, such as the ability to stop time by simply putting her index fingers together. And I had a big, big crush on her; like every other boy who watched OotW, I imagine.

To this day, I think Maureen is the only person I have ever sent a fan letter to. And here is my proof.

I’m not sure what Maureen is up to right now, but I do know she is still acting, which I am happy about. Anyway, I hope that she is well and that she has a very wonderful birthday this year.

Inspector Gadget (the New Series)

Inspector GadgetAs a big, big fan of the original Inspector Gadget cartoon, I’ve been interested in checking out the new series for quite a while, but I’ve only just got round to doing that. The show itself has already been out for nearly a year: there was a sneak preview of the first half of the first episode shown here in Australia on December 27 last year and the show premiered in France on January 3 this year. So yeah, it’s nearly been a year, but I’ve finally started watching it: thankfully, most of the series is already available on DVD here! I’ve now watched the first DVD (pictured above), so I thought I’d write my thoughts on the series thus far. Please note that I’m assuming that everyone who reads this is familiar with the original Inspector Gadget series and that my viewpoint is that of an adult fan.
