The Lazytown characters are very well known in their home country of Iceland. We worked with Lazytown Inc there to translate these characters from their existing theatre, cartoon and illustration incarnations into sophisticated Banraku-style puppets for a TV pilot. They were part hand-operated and part animatronic.
