I feel sorry for the Teletubbies.

My TV is always left on the kids channel, so each night when I go to bed and turn it on the teletubbies are on.

For some reason I always think of the teletubbies as babies that have been left alone, and are just waiting for their parents to return. They have things to help them look after themselves, but always seem really bored. It's like they've been left with one video so they watch it over and over again, each time pretending it's something new and exciting. They cuddle each other as comfort at bedtime and put themselves to bed.

When are their parents coming back!? It's so sad.

Take some acid, then watch teletubbies.  It will all make sense.

We should go for an end of year thread that involves nothing but overthinking.

Like, I don't need to go to the toilet at 2.55pm, but I know I will need to go at 3.25pm when I am picking the kids up, so should I force myself to go at 2.55pm even when I don't need to, so I don't get caught out a the bus stop, or should I just live life on the edge and run the risk of crapping my daks?

Teletubbies don't want their parents back. They are babies with the run of the house.

Rockin.

Don't tell me they are still going! I had just managed to erase all memory of these annoying things from my brain. Thanks heaps! And the vacuum cleaner was, I think, Noo Noo.

Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa, Po, Teletubbies, Teletubbies......

Is this just like "do a wee before we leave" type thing, or do you poo on demand?   My DH does that and it never ceases to amaze me how he does it.


We must be weird.  We loved Teletubbies here and yes I definitely wanted the Noo Noo.

Not as sad as Iggle Piggle sleeping alone on a tiny boat in the middle of the ocean every night.

My DH started tearing up the first time he saw the ending of In the Night Garden, because apparently he thinks it is a viking funeral for Iggle Piggle.  He thinks the garden is his heaven.

DH is a known overthinker. wink.gif

Both my DDs forced me into buying the teletubbies iPod game for them. Like honestly? I hear it load up and I shudder.

I thought they'd passed their genes on to the Night Garden creatures. Same planet anyway.

They are aliens who take the form of babies. Their bumbling appearance masks their true purpose as surveillance agents on earth.
