People are just finding out that the beloved BBC children’s program Teletubbies are actually giants compared to humans, and many couldn’t believe it.
It has been recently revealed by information blog @Fasc1nate that Tinky Winky, Diply, Laa-Laa and Po have heights of over 6ft 5, with the cuddly purple Teletubby reaching 10 ft.
The Twitter user also said that the production team used a trick to make them look small, and many have expressed their shock at the discovery.
“Contrary to their on-screen appearance, the characters were huge: Tinky Winky was 10 ft tall, Po was 6 feet 6 inches, Laa-Laa was 6 ft 5 inches, and Dipsy was 8 ft,” they wrote.
“To make them appear small, the show was filmed on a massive set in Wimpstone, Warwickshire, which was kept secret for a long time.”
The show ran from 1997 to 2001, taking the country by storm but once the location of the show was discovered, “it became an unintended tourist spot, with people trespassing to visit the ‘Tubbytronic Superdome.’
“Frustrated with the disturbances, the landowners decided to flood the set,” it added.
Many were shocked by the information, with one person commenting: “Why are they that tall in the first place, and why bother making them appear small?”
Another said: “I would never think they’d be this huge.”
A third said: I actually always thought they were huge aliens laugh out loud.”
Someone else added: “Totally weird but babies and toddlers love it!”
Another Twitter user commented: “That was one WEIRD show.”
