- — Po and Laa-Laa From Digging In The Sand for Worms
Po is the fourth Teletubby. She lives in Teletubbyland with the other Teletubbies.
Po is a rosy red Teletubby who has an antenna that is shaped like a circle used for blowing bubbles. She is the smallest of the Teletubbies. Po is 6 feet tall and she is played by Pui Fan Lee in the original series (Rachelle Beinart in the new series), who is a British actress of Chinese descent and is also a popular presenter, which is why Po can speak in English and Cantonese and her name also in Cantonese means "wave". She is always heard to shout some words in Cantonese such as "Fi dit!" for "Faster!" and, sometimes, "yāt, yih, sàam!" for "one, two, three!".
Personality and traits
Po's favourite object is her blue (orange in new series) and bright pink scooter, which she calls "Po cooter!" or just "cooter," which is how a young child would say scooter. Po often wants attention and is often silly when she misunderstands the commands of the Voice Trumpets. She is the silliest problem solver, the best "spider-fighter" of the Teletubbies, a tomboyish type, and of all the Teletubbies, she is the one who usually becomes most involved with the audience. She loves both attention and her curly red circular aerial on her head. In the Teletubbies' house, she sleeps on the right side of all the other Teletubbies and sometimes eats Tubby Toast while the others are sleeping, which explains where she sleeps on the far left. Po is also a bit timid, and a little less talkative than the other Teletubbies. She likes cute stuff and often hangs out with Tinky Winky and Laa-Laa too.
Behind the Scenes
Many refer to Po as "he" even though it is "she." This is not true as Po is voiced by a woman and Po's gender is actually female and it has been referred in a few episodes. This is usually due to Po being red and for her tomboyish antics.
