L is for Laa Laa and Lucy
Many of you will be amazed at this funny looking creature appearing on this blog and wondering how on earth could L remind me of Laa Laa? Well if you’ve had to watch Teletubbies at least once a week every week for the past four months, you too would have your head swimming with names like Tinky Winky, Laa Laa, Po and Dipsy.
These ugly looking extraterrestrial creatures have somehow captured the imagination of my two year old grandson as they have millions of other little children the world over. Laa Laa is the third teletubby, bright yellow and wibbly wobbly. The first time I ever saw her was in a You Tube upload called “Dirty Knees”. She looked incredibly stupid as she giggled and gurgled as did the rest of her friends but as the video progressed, I realised how cleverly the concept of cleaning was brought home to little children.
L also reminds me of another television character – Lucy of the ” I love Lucy” fame. We managed to see the re-runs long after they were retired on American TV and even though the characters and situations were far removed in time and space from my reality, I found it hilarious enough to laugh through without being prompted by the canned laughter in the background.
