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 run down the hill to go play, then past several voice trumpets that say "Time for Teletubbies!" several times. After that, the song introduces the Teletubbies by name (one after another), as they dance on the hills. The Teletubbies then walk around Teletubbyland before popping out to say "Eh-oh!" to the viewers. Back on the hills, Tinky Winky and Dipsy laugh and tummy bump each other, followed by Laa-Laa and Po, who do the same. Then they all run to a hill for a big hug. Then, the Magic Windmill spins, and the Teletubbies say "Uh oh!" before running off to start the show. Finally, a voice trumpet rises and asks "Where have the Teletubbies gone?" before cutting to the Sun Baby who laughs and smiles before cutting to the opening segment.

End Credits

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 sadly groan before the narrator says "Bye-Bye" to the Teletubbies, one by one. The Teletubbies all say "Bye-Bye" (one by one) as they duck behind the hills. They giggle after, and one random Teletubby pops up and says "Boo!" and laughs. The others then do the same, before the narrator says "No", and repeats the process one more time. The sun sets, and the Teletubbies each walk up to the house, and say "Bye-Bye" before jumping into the hole. The Teletubbies say "Bye-Bye" when they pop out of the hole (one by one), before the sun is sets, 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"
