Teletubbies is a Breetish pre-schuil bairns' televeesion series creatit bi Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood an Andrew Davenport. The programme focuses on fower multi-coloured creatures kent as "Teletubbies," named for the televeesion screens implanted in thair abdomens. Recognised throughout popular culture for the uniquely-shaped antenna protruding frae the heads o each character, the Teletubbies communicate through gibberish an were designed tae bear resemblance tae young bairns.[9]

Parteecularly notable for its heich production values, the series rapidly acame a commercial success in Britain an abroad. It wan multiple BAFTA awards an wis nominated for twa Daytime Emmys throughout its run.[10][11] A single based on the show's theme sang reached number 1 in the UK Singles Chart in December 1997 an remained in the Tap 75 for 32 weeks, selling over a million copies.[12]

Though production on the first 365 episodes had been announced cancelled in 2002,[13] sixty new episodes were ordered in 2014.[14] Thay are currently aired on CBeebies in the Unitit Kinrick an on Nick Jr. in the Unitit States.[15] Re-runs o the oreeginal 1997 - 2001 series continue tae be shawn on relevant television channels worldwide, some 16 years efter the oreeginal run's conclusion.

Plot[eedit | eedit soorce]

The programme takes place in a grassy, floral landscape populated bi rabbits wi bird calls audible in the background. The main shelter o the fower Teletubbies is an earth house kent as the "Tubbytronic Superdome" implanted in the ground an accessed through a hole at the tap or an especially large semicircular door at the dome's foot. The creatures co-exist wi a number o strange contraptions such as the Noo-noo, the group's anthropomorphic blue vacuum cleaner, an the Voice Trumpets. The show's colourfu, psychedelic setting wis designed specifically tae appeal to the attention spans o infants an unlock different sections o the mind whiles an aw educatin young bairns o transitions that can be expected in life.

An assortment o rituals are performed throughout the course o every episode, such as the playful interactions atween the Teletubbies an the Voice Trumpets, the mishaps caused bi the Noo-noo, the footage o live bairns displayed on the screens in the Teletubbies' stomachs, an the magical event that occurs once per episode. The event differs each time; it is eften caused inexplicably an is frequently strange yet whimsical. Each episode is closed bi the Voice Trumpets an the narrator tae the disappointed, reluctant, but eventually obedient Teletubbies, who bids farewell tae the viewer as thay go back tae the Tubbytronic Superdome whiles the Sun baby sets.

Main characters[eedit | eedit soorce]

  • Tinky Winky (played by Dave Thompson and Simon Shelton in the original series and by Jeremiah Krage in the revival series)[16][17] is the first Teletubby, as well as the largest and oldest of the group. He is covered in purple terrycloth and has a triangular antenna on his head. He almost always carries a red bag.
  • Dipsy (played by John Simmit in the original series and by Nick Kellington in the revival series)[18] is the second Teletubby. He is green and named after his antenna, which resembles a dipstick. Dipsy is the most stubborn of the Teletubbies, and will occasionally refuse to go along with the others' group opinion. His face is notably darker than the rest of the Teletubbies, and the creators have stated that he is black.[19]
  • Laa-Laa (played by Nikky Smedley in the original series and by Rebecca Hyland in the revival series)[18] is the third Teletubby. She is yellow and has a curly antenna. Laa-Laa is very sweet, likes to sing and dance, and is often shown looking out for the other Teletubbies. Her favorite toy is an orange rubber ball.
  • Po (played by Pui Fan Lee in the original series and by Rachelle Beinart in the revival series)[18] is the fourth Teletubby, as well as the shortest and youngest. She is red and has an antenna shaped like a stick used for blowing soap bubbles. Po normally speaks in a soft voice and has been stated by the show's creators to be Cantonese.[19]

Supporting characters[eedit | eedit soorce]

  • The Noo-noo (operated by Mark Dean in the original series)[20] is a conscientious vacuum cleaner who acts as both the Teletubbies' guardian and housekeeper. He hardly ever ventures outside the Tubbytronic Superdome, instead remaining indoors and constantly cleaning with his sucker-like nose. He communicates through a series of slurping and sucking noises.
  • The Voice Trumpets (voiced by Fearne Cotton, Jim Broadbent and Antonia Thomas in the revival series)[21] are several devices resembling periscopes that rise from the ground and interact with the Teletubbies, often engaging in games with them and serving as supervisors. They are the only residents of Teletubbyland who speak in complete sentences.
  • The Sun Baby (played by Jess Smith in the original series)[22] appears at the beginning and end of each episode. She acts as a wake-up call for the Teletubbies.
  • Numerous rabbits are found throughout Teletubbyland, and are depicted by several Flemish Giant rabbits. The Teletubbies enjoy watching them hop and play. The rabbits are the only type of Earth animal found in the land, and take residence in rabbit holes and bushes.
  • The Tubby Phone (voiced by Jane Horrocks)[21] is a character in the revival series, who transports the Teletubbies to the modern world.
  • The Tiddlytubbies (voiced by Teresa Gallagher) are baby Teletubbies appearing in the revival series. Their names are Mi-Mi, Daa Daa, Baa, Ping, RuRu, Nin, Duggle Dee and Umby Pumby.[23]

Release[eedit | eedit soorce]

On 31 March 1997, the first episode of Teletubbies aired on BBC2. It filled a timeslot previously held by Playdays. This schedule change initially received backlash from parents, but the show was not moved.[24] The programme's unconventional format quickly received attention from the media, and it was attracting two million viewers per episode by August.[25] In February 1998, The Sydney Morning Herald noted that it had "reached cult status" in less than a year on the air.[26]

Teletubbies has been aired in over 120 countries in 45 different languages.[27][28] In the United States, the series airs on Nickelodeon as part of the Nick Jr. block.[29][30] Episodes are also released through the Nick Jr. mobile application and on-demand services.[31][32] The original series is available as part of the Noggin subscription service in North America.[33][34] It had aired on PBS Kids until 2008. BBC Worldwide channels carry the series in most of Africa, Asia and Poland.[35] A Spanish dub airs on Clan in Spain.[36] In Greece, the series airs on Nickelodeon Greece.[37] NPO Zappelin carries the show in the Netherlands and MTVA airs it in Hungary.[35] In Australia and New Zealand, the series airs on CBeebies Australia[38] and ABC Kids. JimJam's Benelux feed airs the series and Ultra airs it in Serbia.[36] Teletubbies also airs on SIC in Portugal and e-Junior in the Middle East.[35]

Promotion[eedit | eedit soorce]

Merchandising[eedit | eedit soorce]

A kiddie ride at Chuck E. Cheese's featuring the Teletubbies characters.

Golden Bear Toys distributed the first line of Teletubbies dolls shortly after the programme's debut.[39] They were sold internationally, with talking toys available in multiple languages.[40] Hasbro signed on to develop a new range of products in 1998.[41] In 1999, Microsoft UK released a set of interactive "ActiMates" toys based on the characters.[42] The Rasta Imposta company introduced Teletubbies costumes for children and adults in the same year.[43] Two educational video games featuring the characters were also released throughout the series' run.[44][45]

Teletubbies dolls were the top-selling Christmas toy in 1997.[46][47] Demand outstripped supply at most retailers, reportedly prompting many shops to ration them to one per customer.[48] In some cases, shoppers camped outside stores overnight in hopes of purchasing Teletubbies merchandise.[49][50] Fights over the toys broke out among parents and collectors on occasion.[51][52] Over one million dolls were sold in Britain by 25 December of that year, with Golden Bear representatives estimating that sales could have reached three million if supplies had been available.[53] The plush toys were named "Toy of the Year" by the British Association of Toy Retailers in 1998.[54]

Kids' meal tie-ins have been released at fast-food restaurants throughout North America. In May 1999, Burger King distributed a set of six Teletubbies plush toys.[55] They also included chicken nuggets shaped like the characters on their menu for a brief period of time.[56] Keychains modelled after the characters were available at McDonald's in April 2000.[57] These promotions became controversial among adults who believed they were intended to attract toddlers to high-fat food.[58] Psychiatrist Alvin Francis Poussaint considered the deals "troubling."[59] He voiced his opinion on the matter publicly, but did not take action against the companies.[60]

Two kiddie rides featuring the characters were manufactured by Jolly Roger.[61] They were available at select amusement parks and arcades, such as Chuck E. Cheese's and Fantasy Island.[62]

Overseas Teletubbies merchandise sales throughout the 1990s delivered €136 million in profits for the BBC.[63] By the time of the programme's cancellation, Teletubbies toys had generated over £200 million in revenue for co-creator Anne Wood alone.[64] In 2005, Chris Hastings and Ben Jones of The Daily Telegraph called Teletubbies "the most lucrative show in BBC television history."[65]

Live events[eedit | eedit soorce]

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the premiere of Teletubbies, a series of events took place from March to April 2007.[66] The characters headlined an invitation-only event in London on 21 March 2007. They appeared in New York City's Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, and Apollo Theater. They were also interviewed on The Today Show in an episode that included the first televised appearance of the actors without their costumes. A partnership was formed with Isaac Mizrahi in which Mizrahi designed Teletubbies-inspired bags to be auctioned off to benefit charities. A new line of clothing was launched at the Pop-Up Shop[67] and other specialty stores. New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg announced 28 March 2007 "Teletubbies Day" and gave the key to the city to the Teletubbies. Following their show in New York, the Teletubbies went on their first live European tour, performing in London, Paris, Bremen, Darmstadt, Halle, Hamburg, Köln, and Hannover.[68]

In January 2016, costumed Teletubbies characters appeared at the American International Toy Fair.[69] In April 2016, the series' premiere on the Greek Nickelodeon channel was advertised with a series of appearances by the Teletubbies at malls throughout Athens.[70][71] This began with a live show at Avenue Mall on 16 April, which featured both the Teletubbies and a host from the network.[72] Throughout May 2016, the characters appeared on various breakfast television programmes to promote the upcoming series' debut on Nickelodeon in the United States.[73][74]

Reception[eedit | eedit soorce]

Critical reception[eedit | eedit soorce]

The series received mixed reviews from critics. Common Sense Media's Emily Ashby found that "while the show's examples of cooperative play, wonder, and simple joys are gentle and pleasing, the creatures can still be a little grating to parents watching along."[75] Caryn James of The New York Times stated in her review that the episodes "offer a genuinely appealing combination: cute and slightly surreal."[76]

Upon the show's release, some critics feared that the characters' use of babbling in place of complete sentences would negatively affect young viewers' ability to communicate. The Daily Mirror reported in 1997 that many parents objected to its "goo-goo style" and "said the show was a bad influence on their children."[77] Marina Krcmar, a professor of communication at the Wake Forest University, told interviewers in 2007 that "toddlers learn more from an adult speaker than they do from a program such as Teletubbies."[78] Psychiatrist Aric Sigman has expressed his belief that "Teletubbies is as bad for your child as a violent video game."[79] However, Paul McCann of The Independent defended this aspect of the show, stating that "Teletubbies upsets those who automatically assume that progressive and creative learning is trendy nonsense. Those who believe that education should be strictly disciplined and functional, even when you're 18 months old. Thankfully Teletubbies isn't for them. It's for kids."[24]

Tinky Winky controversy[eedit | eedit soorce]

Tinky Winky started a controversy in 1999 because of his carrying a bag that looks much like a woman's handbag (although he was first "outed" by the academic and cultural critic Andy Medhurst in a letter of July 1997 to The Face).[80] He aroused the interest of Jerry Falwell in 1999 when Falwell alleged that the character was a "gay role model". Falwell issued an attack in his National Liberty Journal, citing a Washington Post "In/Out" column which stated that lesbian comedian Ellen DeGeneres was "out" as the chief national gay representative, while trendy Tinky Winky was "in". He warned parents that Tinky Winky could be a covert homosexual symbol, because "he is purple, the gay pride colour, and his antenna is shaped like a triangle: the gay pride symbol."[81] The BBC made an official response, explaining that "Tinky Winky is simply a sweet, technological baby with a magic bag."[82] Ken Viselman of Itsy-Bitsy Entertainment commented, "He's not gay. He's not straight. He's just a character in a children's series."[83]

In May 2007, Polish Ombudsman for Children Ewa Sowińska revisited the matter, and planned to order an investigation.[84] "I noticed that he has a woman's handbag, but I didn't realise he's a boy," Sowińska said in a public statement. She asked her office's psychologists to look into the allegations. After the research in late 2007, she stated: "The opinion of a leading sexologist, who maintains that this series has no negative effects on a child's psychology, is perfectly credible. As a result I have decided that it is no longer necessary to seek the opinion of other psychologists."[85]

Despite the objections, the Independent on Sunday's editors included Tinky Winky as the only fictional character in the 2008 inaugural "Happy List", alongside 99 real-life adults recognised for making Britain a better and happier place.[86]

Cult following[eedit | eedit soorce]

Although the programme is aimed at children between the ages of one and four, it had a substantial cult following with older generations, mainly university and college students.[51][87][88] The mixture of bright colours, unusual designs, repetitive non-verbal dialogue, ritualistic format, and occasional forays into physical comedy appealed to many who perceived the programme as having psychedelic qualities.[89]
