* 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.
** Before unexpectedly pulling it from the main channel, Creator/NickJr treated it this way on weekends by airing it five times a day, which is justified since it was their their highest-rated acquired show. Also, it's one of two shows on the Noggin app to most of its episodes on it, the other show being ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues''.

* MilestoneCelebration: To celebrate the show's 20th anniversary, Creator/ShoutFactory (the distributor for DHX Media) released the first ever Teletubbies DVD in a decade in America. This DVD is called "Teletubbies Classics: Fan Favorites". Instead of a special like the past releases, this one contains popular episodes across a 3-disc set. Not only does it contain the original UK dub (a first for American release), but it's also the first time the infamous "Lion and Bear" magical event makes it on to an American release after the rumor of it being banned in that country.

* VacationDearBoy: Brennan Pilcher, the boy in the Tummy Tales segment in "Brennan's Moonwalk", stated [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arVpBNf80fk in his upload of the segment]] that he was enrolling at TASIS where the crew just so happened to be filming. This also explains why he's the only American to ever appear in the show (as evidenced by the fact that his upload has the [=ActiMates=] encoding on it, something only found in PBS airings).

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

** It wasn't uncommon to hear the voice trumpets being called "speakers". Their official names were never given outside of promotion material anyway.

** There's both a US and UK dub of the show. Besides some light changes to the voice cast, the US changes the content of some episodes to better suit educational standards. This causes some rather inconsistent episode durations, some even shooting well over the usual 30-minute lengths.
