I grew up with the Teletubbies. Po was my absolute favorite but Tinky Winky was my second favorite cause he was purple lol. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Here's a bit of the news article:

"British actor Simon Shelton Barnes, who played Tinky Winky in the children’s television series Teletubbies, has died. He was 52.

The Liverpool Coroner’s Office said Thursday it is investigating the death of Barnes, whose body was found in the northwestern English city on Jan. 17. Police say the death is not suspicious, and have referred it to the coroner to determine the cause."

Anyone have any thoughts? Did you grow up with the Teletubbies? Was Tinky Winky your favorite?
