If the ’90s are really having a resurgence, then it only makes sense to bring back relics from the childhoods of young millennials—like the Teletubbies, for instance. The show is getting a reboot from Netflix, and will premiere next month!
Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po are back and better than ever, and the show will be narrated by none other than Tituss Burgess. There’s a new sun baby in town (given the fact that the OG is probably well into their twenties by now), but the opening song is a familiar favorite.
“Teletubbies love tubby custard. Teletubbies love dancing,” Burgess says in the clip, as the Teletubbies dance around inside their Tubbytronic Superdome.
“Teletubbies love the Tiddlytubbies and the Teletubbies love each other very much,” Burgess’ voiceover continues as he begins introducing the beloved characters.
Netflix first announced the “Teletubbies” reboot back in September. The press release says Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po will embark on wonder-filled adventures as they learn and grow in this 21st-century refresh of the ’90s preschool series. Each of the 12 episodes will include the new, original song “Tummy Tales.”
The original “Teletubbies” first premiered in 1997 on BBC, and made its way to the U.S. once it became a surefire hit. After five seasons, the show went off the air in 2001.
Last year, another ’90s favorite got the reboot treatment—“Rugrats” began streaming brand new episodes on Paramount+.
“Teletubbies” on Netflix premieres on Nov. 14.
