1. A British television program intended for very young children. Unfairly criticized by some adults who read hidden symbolism into the main characters' appearance, environment, and/or behavior. (Refuting such claims is beyond the scope of this web site, however.)
2. The title characters of this program: four characters with childlike faces, colorful unisex body-suits, and television screens on their bellies. All of the Teletubbies have a uniquely-shaped antenna growing from the top of their heads; these antennas glow whenever one of them receives a signal from the outside world (a short, live-action film starring children from various countries).
The rest of the show depicts Teletubbies acting like toddlers: sleeping and waking, exercising, playing outside, discovering strange objects. They also enjoy hugging each other, usually accompanied by their trademark phrase "Big hug!"
1. I've known people who were straight as arrows, never used recreational drugs, and didn't live with their children...but who still watched _Teletubbies_.
2. My friend's four-year-old daughter wore pajamas with pictures of the Teletubbies.
