Very random thought on creativity: Teletubbies

Sorry. But as a friend told me once, having a child when your old keeps you young.


So today when I was watching Teletubbies with my two-year old daughter, I couldn’t help but think how amazingly creative Teletubbies is. I mean, how do you come up with this level of completely out-of-the-box thinking. Their names. Their home — it looks like something left behind by defense contractor and then made even worse by astro-turfing the place. Tubby custard. Tubby toast.

Perhaps a management offsite could pull some great ideas out of people after a 15 minute segment of Tinky Winky, Po, Dipsy and Laa-Laa.

    A) Did you just admit to something good coming out of Teletubbies?

    B) Are you insuating that you’d enjoy watching them again?

    I actually have never sat through an episode of Teletubbies so my judgements against Teletubbies are somewhat baseless and stereotypical. I’m sure you had a round of golf showing in the Picture-in-Picture window. 🙂
