The Teletubbies are embroiled in a “who’s the daddy?” scandal after the introduction of baby Tiddlytubbies.
First discovered by Twitter user Lyen Krenz, the Teletubbies’ official website confirmed the bizarre news.
Most of us grew up watching the Teletubbies in some capacity, and thoroughly enjoyed their gibberish playdates under the watchful gaze of a, um, baby sun. Despite starring in a children’s show, Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po have courted controversy before – but never in a million years did any of us think that they were secretly reproducing.
The Tiddlytubbies are baby versions of the Teletubbies created for the 2015 series.
They were first introduced in the episode Babies. Apparently the Tiddlytubbies live with the Teletubbies in their own special part of the Home Dome.

Daa Daa, Baa, Ping, RuRu, Nin, Duggle Dee, Mi-Mi and Umby Pumby share the same colours as their elders, which some suggest means they are their offspring.
“The Teletubbies most likely take care of the Tiddlytubbies until they can live on their own and take care of themselves like most other species. It is unknown how the Tiddlytubbies were with the Teletubbies, but they are probably somehow related to them.”
They have their own individual colours and characters and apparently go to “Tiddlytubbies Sleepybyes” on their musical roundy-round bed.
So, in many ways, the apple does not fall far from the tree.
But people are getting very unsettled wondering how the Tiddlytubbies have come into existence, and are raising some important questions.
Shocked fans have demanded to know if Tinky Winky, Dipsy or Po got Laa-Laa pregnant.
what the fuck the teletubbies now have offspring

Who looks after them tho? Teletubbies pop in, but they have their own stuff going on. Concerns abt childcare arrangements here.
