Storyline

In this television show for babies, the four colourful Teletubbies coo and play in idyllic Teletubbyland. They repeat fun, infant-pleasing activities such as rolling on the ground, laughing, running about, and watching real children on the televisions on their bellies. Mysterious pinwheels and telephones rise out of the meadow to loosely direct the day's activities. The Sun, featuring a baby's face, comments on the proceedings with baby noises, and it rises and sets to begin and end the show. Written by Carl J. Youngdahl <zomno@casbah.acns.nwu.edu>

Trivia

Filming would only take place in sunshine with a blue sky. This meant, when the weather was overcast, the crew would simply sit around waiting for the sun to make an appearance. See more »

User Reviews

This is the most frighteningly disturbing show on television.
30 October 1998 | by (Calgary, Canada) – See all my reviews

The Teletubbies is a UK show about four stubby aliens who live on a giant miniature golf course. They walk around the course doing simpletonic tasks and eating alien toast. Their only means of communication is nonsensical jabbering and slight English-sounding words. Every once in a while a talking shower head rises out of the turf and gives them instructions to please the sun which is really a giant baby's head inside of a sun. Then a giant pinwheel beams messages directly into their cerebral cortexes and their abdominal area becomes a projector. Their stomachs usually show small films about children going on adventures, or less exciting things. One time it showed five kids jumping. Just jumping, for five minutes.

If none of this makes sense, watch the show, it probably won't make any more sense, but it might.
