Big Hug! is the 7th Teletubbies VHS. It was released in 1999 by BBC and Ragdoll Productions.

It was re-released along with Busy Day on the DVD 'Time for Teletubbies' in 2009.

It mainly features the Teletubbies having fun and of course, giving big hugs.

Featuring: Andy Brown, Tamzin Griffin, Francesca Rutherford & Jack Western and The Children of Ravenor School, Greenford



  • Since the Big Hug catchphrase was so popular, BBC decided to make a video about it. (even though some of the segments like Dipsy and Laa Laa's walk and the Magic Flower Cloud don't have anything to do with the phrase)
  • This is the very 1st time that "Big Hug!" Catchphrase becomes a running gag.
  • The Magic Windmill freezes immediately after the Teletubbies have one last big hug. Then they heard the wind and watched the Windmill stop. Instead of cutting back to the Teletubbies as they say Uh Oh! and run away, it faded right to the Tubby Bye-Bye Segment and ending credits. This also happens in Paddling Pool, when the Teletubbies remain sitting on the hill after the Lion and Bear sketch.
  • This is the first VHS that features Andy Brown and the only VHS to feature the Funny Lady
  • Some of the foreign dubs of this video, Big Hug has a different translation in the video title to what is actually said in the series.
  • Dipsy was the boo shouter
  • The missing teletubby was Tinky-Winky


  • In the first TV event, Po has Laa Laa's sound on her ariel instead of her own one.
