Over the hills and far away, Teletubbies come to play!

The Teletubbies are these four space toddlers from the PBS kids' show of the same name, with colorful felt bodies, antennae coming out of their heads, and television screens in their abdomens. Their names, for anyone curious, are Dipsy(the green one), Po(the red one), Laa Laa(the yellow one), and Tinky Winky(the purple one). They basically run around doing silly things, and watching pointless little video clips... over and over and over and over again. They are awake when the baby sun is up, but it's "Time for Tubby bye bye" when the baby sun goes down.

It made headlines when conservative preacher Jerry Falwell accused Tinky Winky of being gay, based on the fact he was purple, had a triangular antenna, and carried a purse around. Also, in an episode, Tinky Winky wore a tutu, which could also contribute to that.

The Teletubbies have made quite a few appearances in animutations. Their most notable role, despite not actually appearing, would be the Colin Mochrie sun in Hyakugojyuuichi, which is possibly a parody of the baby sun. Other examples of the Teletubbies' appearances include Po losing a fight against Edgar Allan Poe in Burn Fest, a Gangster Laa-Laa in Mamoritaikara!, and a radioactive Po in A Sticky Night of Love.
