Good show for babies...

What's with all the hate? Everywhere I go, Teletubbies (along with many other baby shows) is being ridiculed. First of all, Teletubbies isn't meant for the older demographic. It's like a three-year-old reviewing Saw. Why would I take advice from someone who's out of the age limit? First of all, ignore these people because Teletubbies is a good, relaxing show for babies. I remember loving it when I was little and it still brings back good memories. It was fun and enchanting. In my honest opinion, it's a classic. The Teletubbies are adorable creatures and are fun-loving and caring. I don't see anything wrong with it, so I don't know why everyone hates it so much.

Teletubbies...not the best show

Teletubbies is a show for little kids but it's not all that educational. Especially if you're trying to teach little Junior to speak in words - the teletubbies speak in baby talk which doesn't promote learning in little ones. It's not too educational. If you're looking for a more educational show, try something like Sesame Street, which teaches kids the alphabet, numbers, and other concepts. As one of the other users said: Definitely don't watch this if your little one had older siblings, as they will make fun of the show - not a good example to set for your baby.To sum it up, Teletubbies isn't the best show for little kids.

Souls in the Teletubbies bellies?!?!

When the Teletubbies turn on their tummies, it seems as though they are sucking in children's souls and using them as puppets for entertainment!

Stupid mindless crap.

Teletubbies is bad. It teaches kids NOTHING, it's boring, and the pancake things are just plain disgusting.

Do not let your younger siblings or children watch this show! My brother watches this show, and it causes confusion to little minds. This show shows terrible communication skills, and no educational lessons! Just turn on Sesame Street, instead!

To me the teletubbies are hypnotised babies. The sun with the baby face creeps me out. It diverts kids from the proper English language and keeps them in a world where everything is happy.

This TV show is suitable for toddlers and young children. It teaches kids friendship and basic lessons. However, the Teletubbies may cause the toddler's older siblings to say rude things about it (e.g. "Tinky Winky is gay because he carries around a handbag") But, it is suitable for young kids. :)

I never could stand this show! It only teaches children what they already know so what's the point in that? Children need to learn and grow not be taught what they already know, it's stupid. Toddlers are smarter than some people seem to make them out to be, so they truly are too smart for this show. I think this show belongs to the chimps, then again I don't think chimps would truly get anything out of it either. Why can't there be more Sesame Street type of shows that teach toddlers and young children many things!

So-so TV show - with some education

For young kids, Teletubbies might be fun. But if they are older than 6, it might get boring and stupid (and baby-ish). No violence at all.

Inspires My Daughter

Well, even if this show is for babies, it inspires my 10 year old daughter. She tends to write stories and this show gives her ideas. But honestly, it's a very annoying show.

I used to love Teletubies when I was a little kid! They are so cool! Such a cool show, let your young children watch this!!

Oh God, That Hoover ;_;.

I understand that its meant for younger watchers and we do indeed all find it endearing but the hoover guy is TERRIFYING. He will traumatise your children and haunt their dreams for life. Even now I can sense his hollow, malevolent, porcelain eyes burrowing into my soul.. somewhere.. somehow.. I have something like anatidaephobia for hoovers who are the one true embodiment of the uncanny valley. Christ.. Still, its an adorable show that radiates with the friendly warmth of that laughing sun thing and you should really get your children to watch it. Just bring a large cushion for them. A huge, squiushy, sound proof one.
