Teletubbies is a BBC children’s television series, primarily aimed at pre-school viewers, produced from 1997 to 2001 by Ragdoll Productions. It was created by Anne Wood CBE, Ragdoll’s creative director, and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show’s 365 episodes. The show’s original narrator was Tim Whitnall. The show first aired on 31 March 1997, and was syndicated in the United States on the PBS network on 6 April 1998.
In 2001 production was canceled and it was announced that no new episodes would be produced, with the last episode being aired on 5 January 2001. However, a total of 365 episodes had been produced enough for a full year. The show rapidly became a critical and commercial success in Britain and abroad.
The teletubbies exist out of 5 characters. The teletubbies themselves; Tinkywinky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po, but also their vacuumcleaner; Noonoo. The teletubbies live in Teletubbyland, which looks like a pretty green valley with alot of rabbits and flowers! The sun shining over their land has the face of a baby and likes to laugh! The teletubbies like to danse and they also like watching tv, which they can do through a screen on their belly.
