    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.

          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) - https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=...r4kDegUIARCkAQ
          Or Roy Rogers -

              Robbie falling out the window trying to climb a ladder in Zap It (2005) could be a reference to one of Kevin's Christmas Eve traps - Home Alone 2: Lost In New York (1992)

                Robbie talking about where Sour Milk comes from to Ziggy could be a Back to The Barnyard reference

                    Haven't even started, unfortunately. I'm still in the research stage of the ice berg video and nearly finished part two of airship intro scenes, I've also been incredibly busy with work and stuff.

                    After the ice berg video is released, I'll work on this.

                    Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about it haha

                      Robbie's Greatest Misses:
                      Rottenbeard's ship comes charging at Sportacus, he lies down on the road, the car drives over him.
                      Same thing happened to Lee & Carter in 'RUSH HOUR 2' (Produced 2000)

                      This is funny because Lee is played by Jackie Chan, and as you may know, Magnus was the villian of one of his films in 2008

                        Sportacus replicates Bruce Lee's nunchuck routine from Enter the Dragon using carrots because Nickelodeon and CBeebies.
