The Tubbytronic Superdome.

Home Dome/Hill or the Tubbytronic Superdome is the home of the Teletubbies.

Original Series

It's a grassy dome-shaped house with 2 pairs of doors at the front and back of the house. There are also 4 windows. There is a hole on the top. Inside the house is a table where the Teletubbies have their Tubby Custard and Tubby Toast. There is also a control panel with colourful buttons and levers that make animal noises and funny sounds when pressed or pulled. The control panel also contains the Tubby Sponges. There is a pink slide that the Teletubbies can go up and down. There are also 2 doors on each side of the entrances/exits of the house, but it is unknown what's inside them.

There are 4 beds matching the sizes of the Teletubbies. They are pink and blue with grey blankets. There is a Tubby Custard Machine for making Tubby Custard and a Tubby Toaster for making Tubby Toast.

Noo-Noo is inside the house all the time. The voice trumpets rise inside and outside the house. The Magic Windmill is on a hill behind the house. There are flowers nearby the house. There are 2 paths that lead to two different hills: the right path leads to the hill with the Magic Windmill, the left path leads to The 'Scary' Hill, the place where the Teletubbies watch the Lion and Bear. There are a few other hills with trees on them.

In the programme, it is always referred to as just 'the house' or 'home'. the film crew would refer to it as the Dome.

Reboot

New Series Dome

The Tubbytronic Superdome in the 2015 series, now called 'Home Dome'.

In the reboot, the outside almost remains the same but now has flowers and lumps on it. The doors and the windows are yellow and the small tunnel leading to the doors is gone.There are now six windows instead of four, and the back door has been turned into a window inside the Tiddlytubbies play area. While the inside has been completely redesigned. It is no longer futuristic and made out of metal, instead, it is now pink and yellow and has white walls which seem to be made out of inflated material. The slide is also gone and has been replaced with a lift called the Dup-Dup.

It also has a grass floor and four orange beds, each with blankets and pillows that match each Teletubbies' colour. The Tubby Custard Machine has been redesigned into a train-like ride so that the Teletubbies can ride around the house and outside in Teletubbyland. In addition to this, it has a Tubby Phone on the control panel and a playroom where the Tiddlytubbies play. These redesigned sets make the 2015 series seem less canon to the original series.
