** In 1999, UsefulNotes/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, we swear!]]

** In 1999, UsefulNotes/JerryFalwell believed a newspaper published by Jerry Falwell (not necessarily Falwell himself, contrary to popular belief) claimed that the show tries to normalize tropes and icons associated with [[AmbiguouslyGay homosexuality]], since the largest Teletubby Tinky-Winky is purple, carries a handbag "purse" and has a triangle on his head.

** Don't forget the infamous black and white picture made in ''VideoGame/GarrysMod''. As if they weren't creepy enough.

** The Teletubbies THEMSELVES are nightmare fuel, honestly, with their unmoving Uncanny Valley faces and blank, staring eyes.

* WatchItStoned: The show got a ShoutOut on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', where Mr Garrison is watching it, ''while completely off his face on Cannabis''. This reflects a common online sentiment that the show's more entertaining if you're high on drugs or on sedatives.

** Once you read about the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BEAR_and_LION_ciphers BEAR and LION ciphers]] on Wiki/TheOtherWiki, Lion and Bear suddenly becomes an allegory about espionage and counter-espionage.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Their target demographic: children 1 to 3, looking for surrealism. The same company went on to make ''Series/{{Boohbah}}'' (2003) and ''Series/InTheNightGarden'' (2007-2009). If you think ''Teletubbies'' was made on drugs...!

* PeripheryDemographic: The show is popular with young adults who are into rave culture, probably because of its surrealism. The people who make personifications of the characters also count, as well as some people in their early teens.
