* AprilFoolsDay: The official. [=YouTube=] channel sometimes does this. They'll upload a video claiming it's a lost episode or a special, only to then turn out to be something {{Series/Boohbah}} related, plugging that official channel afterwards.

* AnimalsNotToScale: Because the Teletubby costumes were huge (ten feet tall), and the setting had to be built to scale, the rabbits that were brought into populate Teletubby land were Flemish Giants, to de-emphasize the size of the costumes.

** There were some actual broadcast episodes that were Christmas-themed: in these episodes, there is a fully decorated Christmas tree in Teletubby Land, and each of the Teletubbies, in separate episodes, find a present under the tree; likewise, the footage they watch on their tummy telies is of kids doing fun things for the holidays.

* TheGreatFlood: In one of the sequences conjured up by the windmill, most of Teletubby land floods, and three ocean liners come to sail on the new ocean.

* NoFourthWall: The Teletubbies often times greet the audience and interact with the narrator, sometimes refusing to do what the Narrator tells them to do. During one episode, the narrator said, "One day, in Teletubby Land, Laa-Laa uses the watering can." Laa-Laa giggled, and then '''said the exact same thing''', including the "One day" part.

* TrashTheSet: Teletubby Land was built on the spot of a farmer's field in Warwickshire, who only allowed them to use the spot for a certain amount of time, so when that time was up, the producers had to dismantle 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.

** There are episodes where TheFaceOfTheSun [[AbsenteeActor DOESN'T appear]], and it snows in Teletubbyland. Some VHS releases dub the episodes with the word "Christmas" in them.
