Making Christmas Cards


Christmas Carols

The Teletubbies are sitting at the table eating their Tubby Toast until they hear a voice trumpet whisper, 'Twas the Night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse'. Then, they repeat the poem before the windmill spins.

After that, 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.
