Stephanie is a fictional character from the children's television show LazyTown. She inspires the citizens of LazyTown to stay active. She has pink hair and is often referred to as 'Pinky' by Trixie. She came to town to visit her uncle, Milford Meanswell, the mayor of LazyTown. At first, no matter how much Stephanie tried, she couldn't get the others to play along, so she asked for Sportacus' help. When Sportacus finally arrived, the whole town worked together to make LazyTown the best place to live. The show always ends with Stephanie performing a song and dance routine to "Bing Bang", the show's ending theme, which begins with the lyrics "Bing, bang, diggiriggidong."[1]

In the Icelandic version of LazyTown, the character is called Solla, and her voice was dubbed in Icelandic by Ólöf Kristín Þorsteinsdóttir.[2]

The role of Stephanie was performed by Julianna Rose Mauriello in season 1 and 2.[3] In 2011, Mauriello announced she would be leaving Lazytown, having grown too big to play the role of Stephanie. She was replaced by Chloe Lang for season 3 and 4. She was played by Kimberly Pena in LazyTown Live! The Pirate Adventure, a stage production that toured throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland in 2009.[4]

Description

Stephanie is depicted as being a sunny, bright, smart, and caring girl, optimistic and athletic. Surprised by the inactivity of the residents of LazyTown, she cheerfully encourages them to participate in more active, energetic hobbies or pastimes and is downhearted when the temptations of candy or video games overcome her prodding. Despite this, Stephanie is characterized by her unlimited optimism and self-confidence, which she proudly promotes and shares with her peers in encouragement against all odds or challenges, always victoriously triumphing over any obstacles or antagonists by the conclusion of an episode.

Appearance

Stephanie tends to wear a pink dress with white tights, pink socks, white and pink sneakers and a pink hairband. Her outfit, though, changes from time to time. For example, in "LazyTown Goes Digital" and "Energy Book", she wears pink leggings with her usual dress. She also wears tracksuits and other items of clothing but they are always pink (save for a few items of clothing). Her hair is dyed pink and in a classic bob style. All her accessories are also pink. She is often seen carrying a pink purse with a heart on it, in which she carries her pink diary.

Reception

Child development authors Lyn Mikel Brown and Sharon Lamb assert that "Stephanie, the eight-year old on the fitness and health-focused show Lazy Town... is especially interesting. While she seems almost over-the-top stereotypical, with her pink hair, pink clothes, pink room, pink everything, she also plays sports, thinks on her feet, and loves computer games. She makes pink a power color but is one of the only girls on the show."[5]
