Nick Jr. USA To Premiere "Teletubbies" Season Two On Monday, July 17th

Nick Jr. USA will start to premiere the second season of the popular preschool series Teletubbies from weekdays from 2:00pm ET/PT from Monday 17th July 2017!

The new Teletubbies series features the iconic characters Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po. In each episode, children are invited to enter the bright, safe, and fun world of Teletubbyland, a world full of love and laughter, and where all are encouraged to explore and investigate the world around them.


Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po continue to laugh, learn and play in season two of the new Teletubbies series (30 half-hour episodes, produced by DHX Media). This season introduces new elements to delight another generation of devotees, including the brand-new honk-honk Tubby Car and an area of Teletubbyland called the Hidey Hup, a beautiful hidden glade containing equipment for physical Teletubbies fun, including the Tubby Bouncy, Tubby Slidey, Tubby Uppy Downy and the Tubby Spinny.

In typical Teletubbies style, they drive to the Hidey Hup in their brand-new honk-honk Tubby Car, singing the infectious Tubby Car song as they travel. The Teletubbies extend their friendship to the adorable and intrepid little Tiddlytubbies–Mi-Mi, Daa Daa, Baa, Ping, RuRu, Nin, Duggle Dee and Umby Pumby–who have their own sing-along signature song. Also, look out for the story of pink tubby custard turning green and a very special Tubby Custard ride carriage for the Noo-noo.


Full of exploration, Teletubbies inspires confidence and curiosity in preschoolers, and nurtures childhood development.
