    Eh Oh!

    The "lovable" (or despicable, or scary) Teletubbies celebrate 10 years on TV! Long live Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po. I love them, especially Tinky Winky, just because they annoy Jerry Falwell so much!

    :rofl:

    Zz.

    My dad had to watch hours and hours of the teletubbies because it was so popular with grandkids. Dad now hates the teletubbies. :biggrin:

    It is because of pingu and teletubbies that I am spiteful, sometimes.

    They are the cause of all that is wrong with the world today.

    What happened to Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fud?

    They are living very happily on Boomerang, and in Looney Tunes Golden Collections.

    Do the Teletubbies actually do anything besides running around and saying "uh oh"? :biggrin:

    Actually, I found their sets and animations to be quite unique. The big smiling baby face in the sun is clever, and I noticed that the kids watching always smiled right back. I was also struck by the exaggerated size of cute stuff, like the rabbits. Also, it has an almost a 60's/Alice in Wonderland like quality...sort of like Easy Rider for three year olds.

    Road Runner used to piss me off to no end man. Why couldn't Wile E. Coyote catch him? WHY? :mad:

    Edit: lol ... I just remembered a family guy bit where Peter is driving with Wile E. and they run over Road Runner with their car, and Peter says something like "Oh jeez, did we hit that guy?" and Wile E. replies "No. Keep going." :biggrin:



    Also a Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd clip:

    I watched it for like 2 minutes one time, and I thought I could never recover from the biggest waste of time I ever experienced. I fully recovered a week later, luckily. :approve:
