Teletubbies is Coming Back

Updated: Nov 27, 2022

That's very good news for those with pre-school children. Plus, apparently, students and stoners.

Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po

Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po are all present and correct for the revival, as is the show's baby-faced sun, the character's futuristic Teletubbyland home, as well as their favorite snacks - tubby custard and tubby toast. Teletubbies' 26 new episodes will hit screens today on Netflix, and it's the second revival for the iconic British show, which first ran between 1997 and 2001. It was revived in 2015, and went off screens again in 2018.

The show's creator Anne Wood was reported to be worth $170 million in 2000, with Netflix's revival of her biggest hit set to swell her coffers even more.

Adults were shocked by the nonsensical, plot-free episodes, but they proved a huge hit with its intended pre-school audience - as well as students and stoners, who enjoyed the series' psychedelic colors and strange noises.

The show will bring back a crew that worked on the series that aired from 2015 to 2018 on Nick Jr. in the United States., which includes - Jeremiah Krage, Nick Kellington, Rebecca Hyland, and Rachelle Beinart - to once again take on the roles of Tinky Winky, Dipsy, La-La, and Po.

They return to speaking in the same excited, child-like gibberish, though the new narrator Tituss Burgess translates for them just fine.
