* AmbiguouslyGay: Tinky Winky.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Tinky Winky.Winky is purple and carries a bag around. Though this is most likely a coincidence.



* AnnoyingLaugh: TheFaceOfTheSun!



* BlackBestFriend: Dipsy.

to:

* BlackBestFriend: Dipsy.WordOfGod states that Dipsy is indeed black.



* BunniesForCuteness: Brown rabbits serve as background characters in the show, mostly for establishing shots.



* CouchGag: The last Teletubby that jumps out of the house in the intro is always different. Sometimes it coincides with the episode's theme (such as in Colors - Purple, where Tinky Winky came out last), while most of the time, it's random.



* DeathFic: Elementary-school kids love to kill these things off.



* TheFaceOfTheSun

to:

* TheFaceOfTheSunTheFaceOfTheSun: The sun has a giggling baby for a face. In the reboot, the actress who plays her is the daughter of the original Baby Sun.



* MeaningfulName: They all have [=TVs=] on their stomachs, hence the "tele". As for "tubbies", well they are pretty fat (and the stomach thing again).

* TrashTheSet: Teletubby Land was built on the spot of a farmer's field, who only allowed them to use the spot for a certain amount of time, so when that time was up, the producers had to tear down the set quick, fast, and in a hurry. This may, or may not, explain why in later episodes, newly created footage simply featured the Teletubbies in blank, solid-colored screens. Even after the set was taken down, so many curious tourists trespassed on his property to see where it was set up that the farmer eventually ''flooded the entire area'' to deter any further intrusions.
