The show Teletubbies first aired in 1997.

It followed the adventures of Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa and Po—four creatures with televisions in their stomachs.

They used those televisions to watch human children from their brightly-colored utopia ... which human children then watched on TV.


If you didn't watch it, or didn't have a sibling/child that watched it, we probably just made it sound like a horrific Inception sort of deal.

Not our fault. The plot is what it is.

Other characters regularly appeared on the show, but none as frequently as the Sun Baby.

Sun Baby showed up every episode to giggle and coo her way through the day as she watched over the Teletubbies.

The show initially went off the air in 2001, but new episodes started happening earlier this year. With those new episodes came renewed interest in what the original cast was up to.

The only real face that people got to know was Sun Baby. So she's the one people checked in on, of course.

That curiosity lead to this tweet and image going viral.

Sun Baby grew up!


It's been twenty-two years since we first saw her face, but still the image of her as an adult had quite a few people feeling their age.

And not exactly loving it.







The idea of Sun Baby making a Sun Baby had a lot of people facing some serious quarter-life crisis issues, but there was a problem.

While original Sun Baby, Jess Smith, was now an adult woman and more than capable of having a baby, the child in the image is not hers.

Teletubbies stepped in to clear things up.

As we mentioned before, new episodes came back this year. OG Sun Baby can't rule forever—particularly since she hasn't been a baby in a long, long time.

A new celestial ruler had to be crowned and now we have Sun Baby Berry.

But people aren't sure if that's better or worse...







So does knowing there is a new Sun Baby make you feel old? Would it make you feel worse to know there are new Teletubbies also?

Yup, the 2019 version of the show features toddler Teletubbies called "tiddlytubbies."

Enjoy that quarter-life crisis!

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
