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 episode Teletubbies: See-Saw (1997) attracted controversy when it first aired due to the sketch involving the bear and the lion. Many parents complained that the sketch frightened their young children due to the uncanny appearances of the two animals as well as the scary dialogue, music, and voices featured in the sketch. Due to this, the episode was banned in some countries, and a new edited sketch featuring the bear and lion was made. This one featured more humorous and light-hearted content. The edited sketch first appeared in the episode Teletubbies: Asian Storyteller (The Fox) (2001). See more »

Freakish!
1 January 2004 | by TsubahiSee all my reviews

This is simply the WEIRDEST kiddie show I have ever seen...just looky at all those phone-poles that pop up from everywhere. Reminds me of my old humidifier that sat on my dresser when I was a toddler. It looked just like a little UFO in the dark and it scared the living daylights out of me even at such a young age. The same thing goes for "Noo-Noo", that bizarre-looking vacuum-cleaner with wriggling light-up eyes and a long sucking trunk. That thing would frighten the poor little tots half to death!

The aliens themselves are curiously portrayed as parentless kitten-faced infants with hare lips and monkey ears that bodily fell from the outer space and forever lost in a rustic paradise with all the hopping bunnies and plastic flowers. They squeak, wriggle, and hug each other for all eternity to come...they certainly act like they don't have any brains in their skulls. And the baby sun...such BRIGHT blue eyes...would giggle and look around as if it doesn't have anything better to do. The big pink pinwheel spins, sprinkling shiny pink stars to stupefy the pot-bellied creatures into delirious submission.

The worse thing of all is how the clippings of tykes doing everyday stuff are forever repeated in the aliens' fat tummies as if the watchers don't know any better...whether they just got off their mother's breasts or not.
