yup. Latibær is the Icelandic name, direct translation: LazyTown :)

yup. that would be Solla stirða :)
the adult actress that played this role on stage some 5 or 6 years ago is
still doing sketches at children's parties and public venues.

I think the "actor" did to!
He's a former fitness world champion (prolly almost 20 years back, before it
became big :))
And after his fitness career ended he wanted to keep motivate the nation to
exercise ... and 14 years later he's still doing that role, mind you his
aerobics act isn't even close to being as good as it was 14 years ago, but
the production has gotten better.
