Áfram Latibær (en: Let's Go LazyTown!) is the 1st Icelandic Play pre-tv Series (1996)
Source: http://www.getlazy.net/wiki A play for children based on the book by Magnús Scheving. LazyTown is full of colourful characters who have a very negative attitude towards physical activity, healthy food and so on. They prefer to stuff themselves with sweets and watch television all day. As a result they are all weak and flabby. To change this, the Sports-Elf arrives, and through his positive attitude, driving magnetism and by not taking no for an answer, he persuades the inhabitants to change their destructive lifstyle.
