YMMV: Teletubbies

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: The Bear and Lion short is nightmare fuel as is. But once you read about the BEAR and LION ciphers on The Other Wiki , the entire thing suddenly becomes an allegory about espionage and counter-espionage.
  • Archive Panic: 365 episodes. Enough said.
  • Nightmare Fuel: 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.
  • Periphery Demographic: Is popular with young adults who are into Rave culture, probably because of its surrealism.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: 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...!
  • Uncanny Valley: The Baby-faced sun.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Po is often mistaken for a male due to her fur being red and for her tomboyish antics.
