Teletubbyland's Rabbits Were Also Large.
In an interview with The Guardian, Teletubbies co-creator Anne Wood explained that the show's adorable and fluffy rabbits are not your typical pet bunnies. "They have to be enormous to match the scale," Wood explained. There was also an issue with their health. "The only ones we could discover that were acceptable had been bred on the continent to be eaten," Wood explained. "We provided them wonderful circumstances, ranging free across the Teletubby grasslands, but their breeding had given them enlarged hearts, and the animal trainer would greet me in grief practically weekly, telling me another had died."
