Some popular teletubbies phrases are ' 'Eh-Oh', 'Laa-Laa', 'uh-Oh', 'Run away! run away!' and 'Bye-Bye'.
The costumes of teletubbies look like bulky space suits and are furry.
This show's theme song 'Teletubbies say Eh-Oh', reached the number one position on the UK singles chart in December 1997 and remained at that position for eight months and sold millions of copies.
The teletubbies characters are played by actors who are dressed in costumes. Tinky-Winky is portrayed by Dave Thompson/ Mark Heenehan/ Simon Shelton. Dipsy is portrayed by John Simmit, Laa-Laa by Nikky Smedley, and Po by Pui Fan Lee.

They’re fantasy creatures, not boys, girls, homosexuals, or toddlers."
