* NightmareFuel: The bear and lion, with the former implied to be deliriously insane and the lion is very menacing and is implied to have killed the bear at the end of the chase. Understandably, Ragdoll banned the episodes featuring the duo and rewrote them on DVD as more comedic characters. The version broadcast in some countries as well as the repeats on International BBC feeds is also the version from the DVD.

Understandably, Ragdoll the duo has been [[BannedInChina banned in pretty much every country in the world]], and in any alien civilizations that may have picked it up.

*** Of course, the winner is... '''THE BEAR!!''' The Bear is a woman (Penelope Keith), but in some languages, to save confusion, ShesAManInJapan.

** In 1999, JerryFalwell believed that the show tries to normalize tropes and icons associated with [[AmbiguouslyGay homosexuality]], since the largest Teletubby is purple, carries a handbag "purse" and has a triangle on his head.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=015EXXqRQD8 This toy]] doesn't help matters. [[{{Mondegreen}} It's a bicycle noise, I swear!]]
** There's also a theory floating around that the antennae(?) of the Teletubbies carry occultic symbols...[[ThinkOfTheChildren meant to somehow corrupt]] the TargetAudience (babies and toddlers) [[MoralGuardians away from Christianty and towards "Satanic" (read: non-Christian) beliefs]]. (Most likely, those who sincerely believe that have never seen Teletubbies; religion isn't even dealt with, and the antennae shapes were most likely chosen because they're interesting from a design point of view. And even in the unlikely case that they ''are'' symbols of something-or-other, [[CaptainObvious babies and toddlers (yes, even Christian ones) cannot grasp symbolic thinking just yet]]).

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Noo-noo, the vacuum cleaner, who, on Chris's website, got a FourthWallMailSlot, when you could speak to him, and he'll respond with robotic noises.
* EveryoneIsSatanInHell: Especially the {{Mondegreen}}-spewing Po doll.
* LoveItOrHateIt: You have no choice!
* {{Mondegreen}}:
** Because Po's TheUnintelligible, the above periphery demographic as well as confused and dumbfounded parents thought the dolls say ''fucked it'' (correctly ''fi-dit'', literally meaning ''faster'') and ''momma man'' (correctly ''ma ma man'', literally meaning ''whee whee whee!'')!
** Tinky-Winky saying "Again again!", sounding like "I got a gun!"[[note]]Cos they're totally all for having gangsters in kid's shows.[[/note]]
* MostAnnoyingSound: TheFaceOfTheSun. Her laughs are really shrill and high-pitched.


Added DiffLines:

** With respect to the Bear and the Lion, the overlay from Animal Parade and Three Ships, the weird CGI from Dancing Bear, Dancing Mushrooms, and Marching Soliders, the senile old woman from TeaParty, the soap commercial dropouts from The Magic Tree and The Puppet In The House, the dolls from Little Bo Beep, the {{Supermarionation}} from Dinosaurs, the animatronics from Dancing Robots, the traditional animation from the Chinese Dragons, the NauseaFuel inducing DeflatingTheBand from Toy Train, the BrownNote=s= from Magic Clouds, and the action figures from Police Cars all attracted their fair share of controversy too. This BBC cartoon is second, only to {{Pingu}}, to have most, or at least some, of the footage [[MissingEpisode cut]].
