Eh Uh! Did you know the Teletubbies are back with all new episodes? This iconic and well-known preschool series, which began in 1997, features the same beloved characters as the original series but has been updated for a more contemporary look! To celebrate the launch of the new Teletubbies series, we were fortunate enough to attend a fun-filled, family-friendly event at Los Angeles Center Studios.
Something magical happens when kid’s shows come to life, and you are transported to magical places like Teletubbyland.
Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po, collectively known as the otherwise the Teletubbies, are making their return to the Nick Jr. channel and we were able to get a sneak peek of one of the new episodes.
The highlight of the day was watching one of the new episodes on the 360-dome screen. Guests felt like they were transported back to the countryside of Home Hill. We snacked on Tubby custard as we watched the characters figure out their new smartphone. From the crowd’s reaction, everyone is looking forward to more episodes!
That was probably our favorite thing next to actually meeting, greeting, and hugging the Teletubbies!
What can you expect from the new series?
Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po still retain their loveable and huggable features but have Touch Screen Tummies that broadcast short action films shot from a child’s perspective.
The old series was filmed outdoors but the new one is filmed in a studio with an amazing set designed to provide a magical environment with stunning and intricate details full of vibrant colors.
The new series will feature 60 twelve-minute episodes with the same iconic characters, Tinky, Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po. While the characters haven’t changed, the visual elements have been updated. The Teletubbies also received some updates including Touch Screen Tummies, a Tubby Phone smartphone and the twirling, whirling Tubby Custard ride. The Teletubbies’ tummies will broadcast live action films, shot from a child’s perspective.
We can’t wait to watch more episodes! The new series is sure to be a hit with a whole new generation of preschool aged children and their families. Don’t forget to catch them weekdays on Nick Jr. at 8am (ET/PT).
