Stingy is a main character in LazyTown. He is a possessive, egocentric collector and the son of the wealthiest LazyTowner. As of the second season, he frequently wears reading glasses.


A bossy collector of stuff, Stingy impatiently dreams of being king of the world. Young and eager, he loves playing with the group (you can’t be a king without subjects), but finds himself apoplectic with jealousy whenever anyone brings something new to play with, something that he doesn’t have. He feels that possessions ‘make the man’. Stingy’s avid collecting does mean that he usually has just the thing the others need to save the day, put on the play, or find their way. If he’ll only share it, that is.

Stingy admires Trixie’s carefree attitude, but he’s jealous of her leadership ability. He’s covetous of Pixel’s computers and gadgets, can’t comprehend Ziggy’s generosity, and, while he really likes Stephanie, is vexed by her seeming lack of concern with material things. What’s a king to do?


Stingy has fair skin, brown hair, and brown eyes. He wears a blue-striped dress shirt underneath a yellow sweater vest. Stingy also wears yellow shorts, a red bowtie, a black belt, a pair of white knee-high socks, and a pair of black dress shoes. Beginning in season two, he occasionally wears a pair of rectangular, black-rimmed glasses.
