Making Christmas Cards


Christmas Carols

The Teletubbies listen to a voice trumpet whisper 'It was the Night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse'.

The Teletubbies watch two children who are making Christmas crackers for each other. Dipsy is very pleased to find his present is a cracker. He looks for the other Teletubbies to pull the cracker with, and when they do it makes a lovely pink bang. The Teletubbies fall backwards. Tinky Winky and Po fall backwards into the house and Dipsy and Laa Laa fall backwards into a tree. Then they all have a Big Hug.

Featuring: Nadia Khan and Sam Whittaker

Plot (US Version)


  • The 'bang' noise when the Teletubbies open the cracker is the same one when the Teletubbies logo pops in the intro.
  • The Dipsy's Cracker segment was featured in the VHS Happy Christmas from the Teletubbies.
  • Laa Laa was the missing teletubby
  • Tinky Winky was the boo shouter

When the cracker opens, a small pink drum can be seen on the ground. But when the Teletubbies come back for Big Hug, it's gone.
