Kristy - I know the teletubbies are tough for adults to handle commercially, but it is also a damn good little kids program. As I have a 1yr old neice, I have watched the program with her many times, it has all the markings of a good program - happy and peaceful, lots of repetition (like little children act), the most the ever say is "uh-oh, haha, ohhh, etc... It's hard not to smile when you are watching it. Despite commercialism and such, some things are successful just cause they are good.
