    BBC (ended 2001)
    The Teletubbies started in the U.K. and proved to be a popular children's show. In April 1998, the U.S.A. picked up the Teletubbies on PBS, and proved to be popular with American children too. Teletubbies is a show about creatures known as Teletubbies (so called because they're tubby, and have TV screens in their stomachs). The Teletubbies live in Teletubbyland, and faraway place inhabited by only the Teletubbies, talking flowers, talking trumpets, a baby sun, the Noo-Noo, a bunch of rabbits, and the narrator. There house is known as "The Tubby-Tronic Superdome", and has everything they need, four beds, a tubby-toast maker, a tubby-custard makers, and a slide used as an alternate entrance. In the middle of their dome, they have a panel of switches and buttons and their tubby sponges which they use to bathe themselves. Each day, the Teletubbies discover new things together, watch videos on their tubby-screens, and have fun together. In Teletubbyland, there's a large windmill, and when it spins pink dust, it let's the teletubbies know that something magical is about to happen. The Teletubbies were developed in U.K. by Ragdoll and BBC. Characters Tinky-Winky The largest of the four teletubbies. He is purple, and has a triangle antenna (because of these features, critics assume he is gay, but rest assure, he isn't, he may be a tom-girl, but he's not gay.) His favorite thing is his hand-bag which he can amazingly fit large things in. His best friends are Dipsy and Po. He may be large, but he's quiet and gentle. His song is "Tinkle-Winkle, Tinky-Winky" Dipsy The second largest teletubby. He is green with a dipstick antenna. His favorite thing is his black and white tie-dye top hat. His best friends are Tinky-Winky and Laa-Laa. He's more of a loner teletubby, and doesn't like "cute" stuff. His song has a reggae beat. Laa-Laa The second smallest teletubby. She is yellow, with a spiral antenna. Her favorite thing his her giant orange ball that she seems to have no control of. Her best friends are all of the teletubbies. She has a free-spirit and can always find away to enjoy things, her favorite word is "nice." Her song is "La la la la la la la la." Po The smallest teletubby. She is red, with an "O" shaped antenna. Her favorite thing is her red and blue scooter which she can ride at an alarming speed. Her best friends are Tinky-Winky and Laa-Laa. She is very quiet and usually shy, but loves to go fast. Her song is "Fidy Fidy, Mar Mar Mar" Noo-Noo The Teletubbie's vacuum cleaner that can suck up anything in his path, even things twice his size. He lives inside the Tubby-tronic Superdome. Trumpets Trumpets that come out of the ground and sing songs or recite poems for the Teletubbies to enjoy. Baby Sun A sun with a baby's face in it. Narrator Basically tells the story, or what the Teletubbies "what to do". Show Secrets -The teletubbies in real-life are huge, the costumes can reach up to 10 feet! -After ten minutes, the actors have to remove the Teletubby heads from their costumes due to carbon dioxide build up. -Nikki Smedley landed the part of Laa-Laa when she was make-believing she was a table at the audition. -The Noo-Noo is operated by a small man inside him. Alot of people have been saying that Teletubbies is teaching their kids to be gay. That is a lie. Teletubbies is a show for kids to have fun.

    Paddington Bear

    Paddington Bear

    Follow
    BBC (ended 1987)
    Although Paddington now lives in London, England, he originally came from Darkest Peru where he was brought up by his Aunt Lucy after he was orphaned following an earthquake when he was just a few weeks old. When Aunt Lucy went to live in the Home for Retired Bears in Lima, she decided to send him to England to live. After teaching him to speak English she arranged for him to stow away in a ship's lifeboat. Eventually, Paddington arrived on Paddington Station in London which is where the very first story begins with the words: "Mr. and Mrs. Brown first met Paddington on a railway platform. In fact, that was how he came to have such an unusual name for a bear for Paddington was the name of the station." The Browns were at the station to meet their daughter Judy when Mr. Brown spotted a bear sitting all alone on a suitcase, behind a pile of mail bags, close to the lost property office. The bear was wearing nothing but a hat and he had a label round his neck bearing the words "Please Look After This Bear. Thank You." ABOUT THE PEOPLE IN THE SHOW: MR.BROWN: works in the City of London. Little did he realise what lay in store for him the day he invited Paddington into his home. Redecorating nightmares, kitchen catastrophes, gardening mishaps – there's no end to the messes his house guest gets into. To Mr. Brown's credit, however, he never loses his temper with Paddington, treating him as one of his own family and even giving him a weekly allowance. Mrs. Brown: is very good-natured. She takes Paddington's mishaps in her stride, always looking on the bright side of his latest debacle. She does her best to familiarise him with his new surroundings, taking Paddington out shopping and even entrusting him with the odd errand. Occasionally, Mrs. Brown is struck by an ominous sense of foreboding just before Paddington lands himself in yet another spot of trouble. Jonathan and Judy: are the Browns' two children. They are intelligent and well-behaved and so, unlike many parents, the Browns were spared the usual problems associated with bringing up a family … that is, until Paddington arrived on the scene! Jonathan and Judy love having a bear about the house and are often on hand to help Paddington with his latest project or out of his latest predicament. Mrs. Bird: runs the Brown household. She is strict and knowing but also compassionate and understanding when she needs to be – which is more often than not when it comes to Paddington. She is a housekeeper, cook and nanny all in one and it is difficult to imagine the Browns getting along without her. Unlike the rest of the family who may be genuinely mystified when they discover Paddington's latest mishap, Mrs. Bird always knows who is responsible. She knows Paddington well and is usually the first to put two and two together. She is incisive, occasionally intimidating but ever-forgiving of Paddington's frequent mistakes. mr. Gruber: is Paddington's close friend and confidant. He has an affinity with Paddington since they both emigrated to England, in Mr. Gruber's case from his native Hungary. Mr. Gruber owns an antiques shop in the nearby Portobello Road and most days Paddington stops by at the baker's shop to buy some buns before taking them to share with Mr. Gruber over a mug of cocoa for their "elevenses" (mid-morning snack). The two get along famously and the shy, soft-spoken Mr. Gruber treats Paddington as an equal, referring to him as Mr. Brown as they chat over cocoa and buns. He is the one Paddington turns to when in need of information, an explanation or, quite simply, pleasant company. Mr. Curry is the Browns' next-door-neighbour and he is a dour, humourless man, forever trying to take advantage of Paddington. A penny-pincher, he is always trying to get something for nothing – especially from Paddington. Mr. Curry's trademark roar of Beeaar! is a common sound in Windsor Gardens as, once more, Paddington comes out on top! Aunt Lucy is Paddington's aunt and she lives in the Home for Retired Bears in Lima, Peru. Since she brought Paddington up he looks upon her as a mother figure and keeps in contact with her through a regular exchange of postcards. When she came over to England to stay with the Browns she left almost as much chaos in her wake as her young nephew! moreless

    Chased by Dinosaurs is a BBC two-part miniseries starring Nigel Marven in a sci-fi faux documentary about Nigel's travels through time, where he comes face-to-face with a variety of long-extinct dinosaurs.

Nigel's mission is to find and study a variety of dinosaur species, including the Argentinosaurus, the Sarcosuchus, the Pteranodon, and the Giganotosaurus. His studies lead him into harm's way multiple times, leading to intense action sequences as Nigel runs for his life in a world where he is outnumbered and outsized. In the first installment, Nigel travels back in time 100 million years to Argentina in the Middle Cretaceous period, where he barely survives an encounter with one of the largest dinosaurs that ever existed. In the second installment, Nigel goes to Mongolia in the Late Cretaceous period, 75 million years ago.
