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

 
Excellent educational series for the youngest
23 July 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The Teletubbies shows invite the youngest children to the world of reading, counting, singing, dancing, exploring, and so much more. Its educational value is tremendous, adapted to the pace and mind of the youngest children. After having watched a lot of these episodes over and over (yes, I have a couple of Teletubby loving kids) I have come to the conclusion that this is one of the best children programs ever aired on television, everything produced in incredible detail. Just a pity that not all the 365 episodes are available on DVD. Please understand - this series is for the youngest children, and only they will fully enjoy the world of the Teletubbies and learn a lot from it.
