Teletubbies. [No. 401], Bagels
Summary: "Created and developed as a celebration of play by the multi-award-winning team of Anne Wood and Andrew Davenport of Ragdoll Productions (UK) Ltd., TELETUBBIES' unique format and characters are designed to nourish young children's thinking and listening skills, help them build their curiosity, expand their imagination, and increase their self-confidence. TELETUBBIES' premiered on PBS in April 1998 and currently ranks among the top-three pre-school children's shows on television. The series continues to touch young children each day as part of PBS' distinguished Ready-to-Learn block of quality children's programming.

"'Over the hills and faraway' is where the Teletubbies live in their Tubbytronic Superdome, Home Hill. Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po are four technological babies who love each other very much and live happily together in their own delightful world of childhood imagination. Each program features the Teletubbies in Teletubbyland, a place that hums with play technology that supplies their every need: Tubby Toast, Tubby Custard, and a conscientious comic vacuum cleaner, the Noo noo. The Teletubbies tummies become television screens that light up, bringing them pictures of happy children from the real world because, next to each other, the Teletubbies love children best of all."--2000 Peabody entry form.
