The Teletubbies are the title characters of the TV show of the same name. They are four characters who live in the grassy lovely place known as Teletubbyland. The Teletubbies love to play in Teletubbyland. They live in a dome well known as the Tubbytronic Superdome. The Teletubbies include the following:
- Tinky Winky, the biggest Teletubby, who is bluish-purple and gentle
- Dipsy, the second-biggest Teletubby, who is green and stylish
- Laa-Laa, the second-smallest Teletubby, who is yellow and bubbly
- Po, the smallest Teletubby, who is red and soft-spoken
- The Tiddlytubbies, cute babies.
- The Noo-Noo, the blue (new series: pink, gold and orange) vacuum cleaner.
They are encouraged by the Narrator and Voice Trumpets to do new things each day. The Talking Flowers comment on their activities. The Baby Sun watches and laughs when funny things happen. The Rabbits can be seen running around Teletubbyland and they love the Teletubbies. The Magic Windmill tells the Teletubbies when it's time for TV Tummy or a Magical Event or Tubby Bye-Bye. They drink Tubby Custard and eat Tubby Toast if they want to.
Latest On Teletubbies
June 2014: In England, the BBC announced it had ordered 60 episodes of a new series of Teletubbies to be aired, with Wildbrain (known as DHX Media at the time), which recently acquired Ragdoll Productions, producing the series.

However, the new series will be filmed on replica model sets instead of Wimpstone Farm in Warwickshire (the original setting for Teletubbyland) since a pond now exists where the Tubbytronic Superdome had been because Rosemary Harding, the owner of the farm, was fed up of fans of the show trespassing on her land.
