The Teletubbies are ready for Tubby hot summer after their Twitter account announced that all four Teletubbies have been fully vaccinated (and are ready to “come out and play”).
Some people reacted to this hit of nostalgia with hilarity, while others took this as an opportunity to encourage getting vaccinated and even troll on some of the haters.

Although, after the initial wave of nostalgia hit, people began to look more closely at the Teletubbies’ vaccination cards, calling out discrepancies and questioning EVERYTHING.
The birthdays of the Teletubbies also proved to be some cause for concern, birthing various theories about Teletubby generations or time travel capabilities that they might secretly have.
Some users took these fact checks even further, highlighting the implications that this post had, and… let’s just say it resulted in some intense discussions.
The entire thread resulting from this tweet chronicles possible explanations and contexts for the Teletubbies universe and why it might be possible for them to have gotten vaccinated in the first place. Here are some highlights.
Leave it to Twitter to create some of the most elaborate theories and explanations about fictional characters getting vaccinated (and maybe some oversight that occurred among the Teletubby staff), but this is exactly what makes the entire thing ten times better.
As one user put it:
Oh! And in case you were wondering… Yes, Noo-noo DID indeed get vaccinated as well!
Don't worry, Noo-noo got vaxxed too! 💙 pic.twitter.com/88SWgjaDXT
