Teletubbies say "Uh-oh!" as well as "Eh-oh!" in this collection of messy, colourful, fun Tubby tales. This BBC show designed for pre-schoolers aims to encourage the integration of listening and watching skills, through combining appealing images with intriguing noises--from the tuning of the radio transmitters, to the gentle whoosh! of the windmill, to the giggle of the Sun baby.
Messes and Muddles sees Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po feeling very, very happy--but leaving very messy beds! Then, tubby custard is spilt everywhere, the tubby toast machines goes berserk and a little fluffy cloud floats into the house and fills it from top to bottom--and the little Noo-noo has to suck all the mess up! The Tubbies get together for a dance, and then real-life children from their TV-tummies do a huge painting with their feet and hands, and blow coloured bubbles. --Alison Jardine
