Teletubbies is a WORK OF GENIUS!!!!!
 
Teletubbies is one of the most brilliant shows to come to the screen. While most people will only view it as a children's show, it is much deeper and more complex. I am a huge fan of the show, and I don't even have any kids! (I'm 31 years old)

First we have the 4 Teletubbies - Tinky-Winky (Purple), Dipsy (Green), Laa-Laa (Yellow) and Po (Red). Besides having a TV in their bellies, each one has a distinguishing shape above their head. The color and shape reflect each of their personalities.

Po, the smallest, is the child; playing happily, dancing, doing whatever she wants. Laa-laa is adolescence. She skips, she bounces, and she plays with the ball that represents new challenges that develop during this period of the life. Tinky-winky, the largest, carries the bag of the adult, representing the responsibility of middle age. Finally Dipsy, the tophat-wearing green tubby, is the old man, living out his fantasies with his declining years.

Another unique component of the Teletubbies is the place in which they live. We have a surreal landscape, with large bunnies roaming amidst the serene meadows and beautiful flowers. However, they are not just mindless animals - we are able to see what they are feeling. One of the most outstanding features is the baby in the sun, always smiling, representing the innocence and hope of a new day. Notice how the colors of the landscape are non-primary, and the interiors contrast with primary. We also have another place, the underground place where the teletubbies make custard or play with Noo-noo the vacuum cleaner. This creates a supernatural quality that is nothing like anything we see in reality - it is somewhat eerie.

A huge component of Teletubbies is the comedy - it is an original British comedy in the spirit of Monty Python etc. I laugh each time I watch it.

The world of the Teletubbies also shows high-tech items as part of their everyday lives, despite the obvious youth of the Teltubbies, from the biolovical TV implants to the talking trumpet.

One of the messages of the show is that, for better or for worse, technology forms a significant part of the foundation of the lives of young people. It warns that someday man in his corruptness may renounce the notion that naturality and morality are superior to technology and embrace technology as being superior to everything.

Many Sci-Fi films show technology being an increasing part of society. Teletubbies shows an extension of this by making technology a huge part of the youthful Teletubbies. In their world, rattles, dolls, and balls are a thing of the past. It is an intermediate step between our world and a world in which technology dominates every facet of people's lives, old or young. Teletubbies would have been a complement to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey because it would be a manifestation of technology's increasing dominance on life.

If you've never seen the show before, please disregard any preconceived notions you may have of this show - most people seem to dismiss it before viewing it. Watch it with an open mind and you will see what a work of art this show really is.

Sorry, but those things just freak me out.
They look like something that would come to life in the middle of the night, crawl up into your bed & wake you up only to hear you scream as they kill you. And I thought clowns were freaky, these take the award.:horror:
