LazyTown will be named Laziest Town in the world unless they can generate enough activity to raise the Energy Meter by the end of the day. Everyone pitches in by doing normal activities, except for Bessie, who doesn't know how to play sports. Stephanie helps Bessie to be active by giving her activities she’s good at – like running to answer phones all over town. At the last minute, LazyTown manages to avoid being named Laziest Town!

Plot synopsis


Sportacus is flipping around inside his airship when he decides it is time for breakfast. He then picks up a ping pong bat and throws a banana in the air. He then slices the banana into small slices which he then catches in his mouth. Sportacus then calls for an apple but is surprised to learn that he has run out. He then uses a bungee cord to fly down to a nearby tree where he picks an apple. After landing back on the ship he takes a bite looking satisfied.

Main episode


Robbie is in his lair and says he will never move again. The phone rings and when he eventually answers, it's Bessie Busybody and she apologies and says "wrong number". Robbie has a tantrum, and then we see the energy meter ringing and flashing at 100.


  • The music heard while Bessie Busybody is sprinting for the telephones is very similar to the well known film/song "Chariots of fire" by the Vangelis.
  • According to this episode, there are three phone booths in LazyTown.
  • The clock on the energy meter keeps changing its time back and forth. At one point, the clock said it was almost 5:00. Later, it was several hours behind 5:00, even when the mayor said it would be 5:00 in a few minutes.
  • Goof: When Ziggy jumps up and down during the second chorus of "Go For It", you can briefly see the bottom edge of Ziggy's top half and no legs. This rare puppet error isn't very obvious, but it happened because the puppeteers don't usually use legs for the puppets unless they need to.
  • The energy meter plot went on to be reused in many LazyTown Live shows.
