Ziggy wants to be a hero just like Sportacus, but he keeps messing things up, especially a clubhouse the other kids are trying to make. When Robbie devises a plan to saw an overhanging tree branch to smash the clubhouse, Ziggy steps in and finally manages to become a hero and save the day.

Plot synopsis


Daytime, Sportacus is busy making an ABC salad. A carrot for Vitamin A, a potato for Vitamin B, a tomato for Vitamin C. Despite having an “airbrake” Sportacus never has to anchor his airship to anything, it always seems to stay in place!

Main episode

Stephanie, Pixel and Trixie want to build the clubhouse that they designed on Pixel’s computer.

Mini Save

(1) Sportacus saves a letter about to be mailed by Mayor Meanswell from blowing away. (2) Sportacus saves Ziggy from falling when he launches himself over the piles of wood for the clubhouse.

Robbie Plan

Robbie hasn't had any sleep for three nights and is really grouchy. He goes up to the surface for a “change of scenery” to help him sleep. Eventually he finds a quiet bench in town to sleep on, but is interrupted by the hammering and talking from the kids who are constructing the clubhouse. Robbie uses his chalkboard to lay out his plan again. He plans to saw off a tree branch right above the new clubhouse.

Big Save

Sportacus has to save Robbie from the Tree branch and the clubhouse from being destroyed by Robbie’s Rotten plan.


A bee comes and wakes Robbie from his sleep and he falls off the fence.



  • Ziggy’s Superhero outfit is loosely modeled on Sportacus, but with Sweetie additions. His Goggles are made from an old Airline Sleep mask and two iced donuts.
  • Robbie’s orange ear plugs seem to be made from the same material as his orange couch.
  • Ziggy is disheartened that he can’t help anybody as a superhero and says he should go and join the Circus – Later on in The LazyTown Circus all the kids join the Circus.
