Teletubbies Have Babies Called Tiddlytubbies & Twitter Is Shook
Perhaps you watched Teletubbies as a kid. Whether you were young enough to enjoy it or old enough to wonder WTF you were watching, it's safe to say most of us are familiar with Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa, and Po. But did you know that the Teletubbies have babies called Tiddlytubbies now? 'Cause they do, and Twitter can't deal.
Twitter user @lyenkrenz (Lyen Krenz Yap) apparently saw images of the little Tiddlytubbies on Facebook, Buzzfeed reports. The 19-year-old took screenshots of the photos and posted them to Twitter, where her tweet quickly went viral. It reads,
OKAY STOP EVERYTHING THE TELETUBBIES OFFICIALLY JUST HAD KIDS I AM NOT PREPARED FOR THIS INFORMATION
I wasn't prepared for it either, to be honest. On the rare occasion I tuned into the Home Dome happenings, it didn't seem like kids were really in the picture for the colorful crew of OG Teletubbies.
Like, how did they procreate?
Apparently, the eight young Tiddlytubbies were first introduced back in 2015 on an episode fittingly titled "Babies" and live in their own separate part of the Home Dome.
According to the show's website, their names are Daa Daa (green), Baa (blue), Ping (violet), RuRu (orange), Mi-Mi (sky blue), Umby Pumby (yellow), and Nin and Duggle Dee (purple and red).
It's unclear if the Teletubbies are the Tiddlytubbies' parents or if they just came out of nowhere like the sun baby.
Either way, Twitter had opinions about the news, which we all seemed to have missed since growing up and leaving Teletubbies in the past.
"They are not fit to be parents, they can barely take care of themselves!"
No one Teletold us.
Someone thinks they're siblings, though.
That would make more sense?
Needless to say, some saw themselves in the Tiddlytubbies.
If you suddenly feel the need to binge-watch the last 15 years worth of episodes (same), you can stream Teletubbies on Amazon Prime and BBC.com.
