    Good idea! Every once in a while I discover new references but forget to write them down. I need to remember doing that.
    Magnús: - I have fans of all ages and I don't think it's weird when older people like LazyTown. LazyTown appeals to people for many different reasons: dancing, acrobatics, etc.

      Purple Panther - Stingy hanging off Clocktower

      Could possibly be a reference to 2 things - 'Project A' or 'Safety Last'

        The song video of Man on a Mission in Secret Agent Zero is an homage to the opening credits of many James Bond movies.

        Particularly a girl dancing in silhouette.

          In the 'Disguise Time' segment Robbie says "YIPPIE KI.. yay" when he sees the costume he wants.

          This could be a reference to:

          DIE HARD (1988) -
          Or Roy Rogers -
