About This Quiz

The Teletubbies hit the ground running way back in 1997 and haven't looked back. They were an instant hit with kids and parents alike and why not? In a world where it's hard to trust that your kids aren't being seduced by Big Macs, sugar-filled serial, rampant cussing, sex and violence, the Teletubbies were the perfect kind of entertainment for children. They were brightly colored, they never said anything scandalous and they just had fun. They weren't changing the world, but they didn't need to. Instead, they were a surreal mix of weird fantasy and good examples of cooperation, playtime and fun. Adults either loved or hated them, but that's the nature of adults, isn't it? Kids, for the most part, all leaned into the love.

It's been over 20 years and the Teletubbies have endured, even through harsh criticisms and plenty of other creations that have come and gone to entertain children. They're part of the culture, part of the entertainment landscape and, for many, a part of our childhood. You may have grown up and left the Teletubbies behind, but we're willing to bet you still remember who was who. So now we need to know who was you. Which Teletubby are you these days?
