The Teletubbies had 5 years to respond to my letters, but never did. That’s not cool.
I wrote multiple letters to Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po between 1997 and 2001. They never replied to any of them. I sent autograph requests as well as notes of admiration, but I never got so much as a thank you. That’s just rude, especially seeing as how I was their #1 fan.
I begged and pleaded for the Tubbies to please send me an invite to visit them. I even offered to bring Tubby Toast, but they never replied. Words can’t express how broken they made me. I often wonder how different my life would be today if they had actually contacted me.
If I had to guess, I think they DID receive my letters, but that stupid Noo-Noo vacuum probably sucked them up. Maybe it was jealousy, maybe it was negligent, but either way it doesn’t change the past. I wrote plenty of letters. They had to have received at least one.
Another reason I’m angry:
A remake of Teletubbies was made in 2015. There were new characters added to the show – The Tiddlytubbies. Think back to Scrappy coming on to Scooby Doo and the Great Gazoo on the Flintstones. It ruined so much for me. This was just wrong. I wrote to them as well to express my concern, but you can guess what happened. NOTHING.
And yet another reason I’m angry…
The photo below is Jess Smith. She was the sun baby who rose as the supreme goddess over Teletubbyland each day. For your useless knowledge, Smith is now 20 years old, but you probably didn’t even know her name was Jess Smith (that’s DOUBLE useless knowledge, so you’re welcome).
When Smith was chosen to be one of the most iconic entertainment figures of all time, she was paid a whopping £250 (GBP), or roughly $314 US dollars and a box of toys. She should be angry about how she was so horribly exploited, but I’m angry for her. That’s not right. She needs a Go Fund Me page or something.
Perhaps you feel the same about all this, perhaps you don’t.
Whether you care about this or not, you just spent five minutes of your life that you’ll never get back having read this. But at least you know something now you might never have thought of otherwise. I did my job.
