Fans have been given a first look at the new rebooted Teletubbies on Netflix. Watch here:
The much-loved kids' TV show is making a comeback on the streaming service, and Netflix has offered us a glimpse of how the show will look.
A synopsis for the show reads: "Join colourful friends Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po on wonder-filled adventures as they learn and grow in this 21st century refresh of the beloved preschool series, now narrated by Emmy-nominee Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt).
"Each episode includes new, original 'Tummy Tales' songs that will have the entire family dancing along!"
According to Netflix, it will be released on 14 November.
The original children's TV series aired from March 1997 to February 2001 on the BBC, with a revival airing from November 2015 to October 2018.
They also released an album, Big Hugs, in 2017 with music from the new series.
The series - in which the characters say 'Eh Oh' and sport antennae on their heads - was designed to encourage young children to watch television creatively and 'nurture childhood development'.
They made headlines last year after asking Lil Nas X on Twitter if they could feature on his next album.
The US rapper replied: "alright bet! me and tinky winky on the hook, dipsy & po on the verses and we’ll let laa laa do the outro."
Forget Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po though - Naughty Noo-Noo was the unsung hero of the piece, and I for one am desperate to know whether he will feature in the Netflix reboot.
If you can't remember him, he was that pesky and somewhat adorable vacuum cleaner that used to whizz about sucking up toast and such.
Looking back with hindsight, he kind of seems like he was always off his head.
Then of course there was the sun baby (come to think of it, Teletubbies is quite a weird show).
The actual OG baby recently explained how she landed the part.
Jess Smith that she had been taken to a hospital for a check-up as a young child but happened to be there on the exact same day that a producer from the show had been in and asked if there were any 'smiley babies'.
She said: "While recording my dad held a teddy bear behind the camera to get me to laugh and rolled a toy racing car to get me to look down at the camera, and it obviously worked."
