* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Their target demographic: children 1 to 3, looking for surrealism. The same company went on to make ''Boohbah'' (2003) and ''In the Night Garden...'' (2007-2009). If you think ''Teletubbies'' was made on drugs...! The show got a ShoutOut on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', where Mr Garrison is watching it, ''while completely off his face on Cannabis''.

** "Falling Down Dance" has [[https://youtu.be/TeqydvZnFOw&t=1m18s a really nice panning shot of the Magic Windmill starting to spin]] that was only used once throughout the entire show.

** It's still a kids show but the triple ship magic event hasn't aged well technically. Still looks gorgeous in its own surreal way however.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Arguably the most popular segment in the show is "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyEdWz2rQZ8 The Tubby Toast Accident]]" from Orange Picking. It's not hard to see why.

** The Bear and Lion short is nightmare fuel as is. But once you read about the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BEAR_and_LION_ciphers BEAR and LION ciphers]] on TheOtherWiki, the entire thing suddenly becomes an allegory about espionage and counter-espionage.
** 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!]]

** The snow episodes, instead of shooting new footage, lazily ChromaKey the stock footage. Needless to say, it's very noticeable. You can even still see bits of green sticking out in some parts.
