Opening and Ending

Opening Credits

We see the opening of the Teletubbies theme. It starts off with the rising of the Sun. It becomes shining. The sun zooms in. We see Teletubbyland zooming in, and the Narrator says "Over the hills and far away...... Teletubbies, come to play....". The Teletubbies pop out of the house. And we see the Teletubbies logo while a kid says "Teletubbies!". Then, it zooms out, with this logo has nice CGI, it pops and fades through the scene. The Teletubbies dance, but in the end, we see the voice trumpet after rising saying "Time for Teletubbies! Time for Teletubbies! Time for Teletubbies!".

End Credits

In the ending we see the blue sky background, along with the website URL while the Male Announcer says "To learn more about Teletubbies meet Boohbah, visit pbskids.org." and we saw the sign that says "Watch episodes on their new show: Teletubbies meet Boohbah on PBS Kids" while the Female Announcer says "After the movie was premiered on TV and movie cinemas worldwide, your child will watch new episodes on their new show..." and the Big Male Announcer says "Teletubbies meet Boohbah!" and the Child Announcer says "...coming soon to a TV near you, on PBS Kids, and anytime you want at pbskids.org." The Voice Trumpet is seen rising up while saying "Time for Tubby Bye-Bye! Time for Tubby Bye-Bye! Time for Tubby Bye-Bye!". The Teletubbies all say "Bye-Bye" 1 time. They giggle after. The Teletubbies all say "Bye-Bye" 1 last time. The Teletubbies say "Bye-Bye" when they pop into the house. The Teletubbies say "Bye-Bye" before the sun is setting, laughing out loud in short bursts. The show ends with a screen that shows the Ragdoll Productions and BBC logos and the text: "A Ragdoll / BBC Production for PBS in association with The itsy bitsy Entertainment Co. © Ragdoll Productions (UK) Ltd / BBC 1998"
