* AdoredByTheNetwork: This show is one of the Big Three children's franchises for BBC, with the other two being ''WesternAnimation/PostmanPat'' and ''Series/{{Tweenies}}''.[[note]] Before ''Tweenies'', ''[[WesternAnimation/NoddysToylandAdventures Noddy]]'' was part of this group, but it was dropped because of its' ChannelHop to Channel Four's Milkshake! block, where it has stayed to this day.[[/note]] There has never been a day where Teletubbies hasn't aired on the BBC and/or its' subchannels since the show's premiere 20 years ago.
** Creator/NickJr treats it this way on weekends by airing it five times a day, which is justified since it's their highest-rated acquired show. Also, it's one of two shows on the Noggin app to have all of its' episodes on there.[[note]] the other being Blue's Clues[[/note]]

* ArtisticLicenseFilmProduction: Teletubbies was first broadcast in 1996, but it looks more like it was first broadcast in 1982.

** The AdobeFlash segments in the "Let's Learn English With the Teletubbies" [=DVDs=] are known as "Cartoon Magical Events" by fans. Most likely because the Magical Event cue plays before the crossfade into them.

* BannedInChina: Any episode with Lion and Bear got this treatment outside the UK. Depending on your country, it was either replaced with the edited sketch, if not, another magical event entirely, or episodes that included it simply were never dubbed.

* . {{Recut}}: Most VHS releases only play Tummy Tale segments once. Most likely to save on film.

** There were rumors that the Tubby Phone was going to be able to teleport the Teletubbies to the "real world" (most likely just the streets of London), but this idea never game to fruition. This would require tons of camera trickery to pull off anyway.

** The Magic Windmill is often called "The Magic Pinwheel"
[[CallARabbitASmeerp for obvious reasons]]. The reboot makes it look more like a windmill though.
