Teletubbies fans divided as Netflix reboot reveals new sun baby in first official trailer | The Sun

NETFLIX have dropped the first official trailer to The Teletubbies, with the iconic foursome set to returns to screens this year.

The trippy children’s TV show, which was originally broadcast on the BBC between 1997 and 2001, had already been rebooted in 2015.


When the first reboot was cancelled in 2018 after four seasons, it appeared to be the end of things for the Teletubbies on TV.

But now the streaming giant has brought Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa, and Po back to our living rooms.

There's even a brand new sun-baby – the iconic image that greets viewers at the start of every single episode.

However, fans have been left divided after claiming the visual effects are not up to scratch, while others vowed not to tune in.

Alongside an array of confused-faced emojis, one person penned: "Why isn't the baby tinted to be the same colour as the sun? Also, why is the sun so red?"

Echoing their comments, someone else said: "Was it really that hard to make the f***ing sun baby look like it used to?

While a third quipped: "Not my Teletubbies – will not be watching! Looks way below par to me."

Narration for the series will be provided by Tituss Burgess, who is best known for his work as Titus Andromedon on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

The series will premiere on the streaming service in November as part of a group of new programmes aimed at toddlers.

The Teletubbies became a cultural phenomenon in the UK in the 1990s, with the four characters even climbing all the way to number one in the UK singles chart.

The song, entitled Teletubbies Say Eh-Oh, reached went straight in at number one as a new entry, knocking the BBC’s Children in Need cover of Lou Reed’s Perfect Day off the top.
