Remember “Teletubbies”, the 1997-2001 children’s TV show with characters “Tinky-Winky”, “Dipsy”, “Laa Laa” and “Po”?

TMZ reports Teletubbie’s star Simon “Tinky-Winky” Shelton passed away suddenly last Wednesday at age 52.

Shelton’s niece Emily Atack posted this.

Shelton actually landed the role after the original actor was let go in 1997.

What a blessing to have entertained millions of children… ahem… and parents… during his lifetime.

Rest peacefully, Simon… :).
