The Teletubbies — the playful characters whose popularity peaked in the early 2000s and have since disappeared into obscurity — have been fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.

  • “We’re all vaxxed! Just in time for a Tubby hot summer Who’s ready to come out & play,” the Teletubbies said on Twitter.

One major problem — Teletubbies might have lied about vaccination

Per The Verge, the Teletubbies may have lied on their vaccination cards. The creatures wrote down 2003 as their dates of birth, even though the show first launched on BBC2 in 1997. Not everyone loved the show when it debuted.

And the creatures have vaccination cards that look to be American since they include the American style of putting in dates. So the Teletubbies, which originated in the United Kingdom, are getting their vaccines in America, according to The Verge.

Social media reacted to the Teletubbies

Twitter users responded to the news of the Teletubbies getting the vaccine, according to CNET.
