Doppelganger

The readers of this blog can be broken down into some pretty distinct groups, so I apologise in advance to those of you who neither know the fabulous Miss Andrea, nor have any knowledge of the kid’s show Lazy Town as the rest of this post may leave you scratching your head. However, I couldn’t ignore this for any longer as it’s been nagging me since Buster Boy and the Troll Princess first began grooving along with this Icelandic mega hit.

The character Trixie is Lazy Town’s resident mischief maker, she has attitude problems with authority, engages in political discourse by defacing campaign posters and shows disdain for the goody two shoes heroine. I realise that description could fit almost any employee of the ABC, but photographic evidence leads me to believe that Miss Andrea is indeed the model for Trixie, with the pigtails merely a ploy to hinder truth seekers.

So Miss Andrea, what have you been up to in Iceland, and are you involved in that country’s complete economic meltdown? Your friends deserve the truth.

  1. I thought BusterBoy might have been the first to comment on this one, Dave, but here goes (and you’re right, mate), Huh?

  2. I couldn’t find a photo of Ms Andrea on her site, Dave, so I’ll just have to take your word for it that she has oversized eyes, ears that stick out, very chubby cheeks and … a really cute mouth!

  3. You’re right. On closer inspection; however, it would seem that LazyTown could in deed be a pseudonym for the Dave From Albury Compound. Let’s look at some of the other characters:

    Buster Boy (Pixel): In today’s world, being technologically savvy has definite advantages. Pixel is one of those kids whose techno knowledge would surely confuse and put to shame many adults. He has to be careful though, about spending too much time playing computer games and not enough time outside playing.

    What say you?

    The Troll Princess (Trixie): For those parents whose book list includes Raising a Strong Willed Child, Trixie will be an identifiable character. She is strong and independent. She is not big on following rules though, and her challenges often come from an unwise decision to buck authority.

    Dave and his shiny gene (Stingy): As his name suggests, Stingy has trouble sharing. His favourite word is “mine,” but in several episodes he eventually concludes that friends are more important than things.

  4. I was going to say Lee – I was with you on Dave’s description right up to the friends bit…smack bang on BB and TP though!

  5. Hahahahaaaaaaaa, you folk put a smile on my mug. Funny you should ask, DfA. Back in about 1991 I was often asked by random strangers if I was from Iceland. I actually ran into Bjork once – literally – in the crowd at a Big Day Out. She looked at me, and I looked at her, and I think we both shivered and turned away. We both look exactly like Trixie, except that Bjork is skinnier and has weirder hair than both me and Trixie. At least Trixie has her mouth open and hands on hips, which some unkind folk might say looks like me. Does Mrs Dave agree?
