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

The popular series gained some notoriety in 1999 when American cleric Jerry Falwell alleged that Tinky Winky was a gay role model for children. Falwell based this theory on the character's purple color and his triangular antenna. Apparently, the color purple and the triangle are sometimes used as symbols of the Gay Pride movement.

Ohhhhhh,my head hurts!*starts sobbing*
9 August 2000 | by (On the Faxi) – See all my reviews

The "Teletubbies" has to be one of the most Nightmare-inducing TV shows ever (save for Barney and the New Nick JR).

Four creepy-looking "creatures" with television sets in their torsos,doing some strange,nonsensical things that don't make sense and probably give you head aches and trippy nightmares.

I know this is a children's show,but I even know some little kids who are afraid to watch these monsters (yes,I'm serious).

Now,the Skeksis from the "Dark Crystal" on the other hand,are even more lovable than the "Teletubbie" things,and they are pretty frighting enough!
