Television series Teletubbies, developed by Anne Wood and Andrew Davenport for the BBC, is a British children's television programme. The Teletubbies are a group of four brightly coloured creatures that are named after the television displays that appear on their bellies. The show is centred on them. The Teletubbies are recognisable across popular culture for the distinctively shaped antennas that protrude from the top of each character's head. They speak via gibberish and were created to be eerily similar to young children.
The series was an immediate economic success both in the United Kingdom and overseas. Throughout its existence, it received a number of BAFTA awards and was nominated for two Daytime Emmys. In December 1997, a single based on the show's theme tune debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart and lasted in the Top 75 for 32 weeks, selling more than a million copies in the process. By October 2000, the franchise had produced more than £1 billion ($1.6 billion) in goods sales, according to the International Franchise Association.
Despite the fact that the original series ended in 2001, a revived version was approved in 2014.
The Nick Jr. Channel in the United States and the CBeebies channel in the United Kingdom broadcasted the launch of the reboot. Reruns of the original 1997–2001 series are still being shown on television stations throughout the globe today.
