Twenty years on from their million-selling No. UK 1 smash Teletubbies Say Eh-oh, the fab four are once more eyeing the charts with an irresistibly catchy new album. Featuring a mix of new songs from the current series of the iconic show alongside a selection of children’s classics with a Tubby twist, the record is available both digitally and on CD now.
Music and dance are integral to Teletubbies, so what better way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the groundbreaking preschool show than with a brand new album for youngsters to sing and dance along with.
Narrator Daniel Rigby lends his vocals to many of the songs, including the title track the popular Bottom Bump SongTiddlytubbies Songtime, which introduces the world to the delightful Tiddlytubbies. In addition to music from the first two series of the revamped Teletubbies, the 19-song soundtrack features timeless favourites that kids know and love performed by the voice of the Tiddlytubbies and Voice Trumpet, Teresa Gallagher. Preschoolers will be moving and grooving to children’s classics such as Wheels on the Bus, Four in a Bed, Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.
Daniel said: “It’s amazing to sing the Teletubbies theme tune. Highly surreal, but wonderful, as well, and any one of my friends, or my family, who I say, ‘I am now singing the theme tune of the Teletubbies,’ it’s like I’m saying, ‘I’ve been knighted,’ or, yeah, ‘I’ve won £1 million’.”
