LazyTown (Latibær in Icelandic) is an English-language Icelandic children's educational musical comedy program made by an international crew and performed by a cast from Iceland, the United States and the United Kingdom. It is based upon a children's book from 1995 titled Áfram Latibær! and was created by Magnús Scheving, an aerobics champion who also plays the character Sportacus.

The series was commissioned by Nickelodeon in 2003, following the production of two stage plays and a test pilot. Originally performed in American English, the show has been dubbed into more than thirty languages (including Icelandic) and aired in over 180 countries. The show combines live action, puppetry and CGI animation, making it one of the most expensive children shows ever made.

The first two season (fifty-two episodes) episodes were produced from 2004 to 2007. It originally aired on Viacom's Nickelodeon channel in the United States and internationally. Turner Broadcasting System Europe acquired LazyTown Entertainment in 2011 and commissioned the third and fourth seasons for a total of 26 new episodes, which premiered in 2013 on Turner's Cartoonito and later on Viacom's Channel 5.

Multiple spin-off projects were created, including stage productions and a short-format television program for younger children titled LazyTown Extra.
