The Truth is an episode from the spin-off series Teletubbies!

Storyline

The Teletubbies are trying to keep an eye on the Tiddlytubbies, but Noo-Noo distracts them and Umby Pumby escapes from the cage. After the Teletubbies get Umby Pumby back to where he belongs, the windmill starts to spin for a TV Event about some kids playing All Star Family Fortunes with Vernon Kay. After the game has ended, Thomas tells Ashima a story about an accident he had back in the 1960s.

Trivia

  • The storyline of the episode is almost identical to the Thomas & Friends episode, The Truth About Thomas. The only difference is that Thomas and Ashima are mad with each other instead of Dory and Hank.
  • Po is the missing Teletubby.
  • Tinky Winky is chosen for the TV Event.
  • Laa-Laa is the boo shouter.
  • The first appearance of the Tiddlytubbies in the spin-off.
  • This marks some things about Stephen Mulhern:
    • The first time he is seen in CGI.
    • The first appearance of him in the spin-off.
  • When Ant, Dec, Stephen and Nia watch Thomas and Ashima being mad with each other, Ant and Dec make a reference to I'm a Celebrity.... Get Me Out of Here!.

Goofs

  • Thomas tells Ashima about the moment in the flashback if The Fat Controller's daughter had not found that photo of him and Ashima from 1963, it reminded him who she was. But, Thomas had not met Ashima back in 1963. A lot of people complained about this mistake.
