Answer

This must be the most frequently asked question about the Teletubbies but is also one of the most important in explaining the programme. We never teach children to say 'Eh-oh!' - that's just the way the Teletubbies say it. All the children (and adults) in the programme say, 'Hello'. We do know that children sometimes say 'Eh-oh!' when they are mimicking the Teletubbies, but they know very well it's only a game. Children love to play with language - hence nursery rhymes and nonsense verse - and playing with something is by far the best way to learn about it.
