Status Partially Found

Be Safe with the Tweenies was a series of 27 shorts[1] about being safe around certain situations (like railways and/or sheds). These shorts aired on the British children's channel CBeebies between 2003 and 2008. Only two full shorts and clips from various other shorts have come to light, as of now.[2] The shorts are also known as the 'Tweenies Safety Shorts'.[3]

About

Be Safe with the Tweenies, as the title suggests, was a show about being safe. The theme for the intro was remade and was much shorter than the Tweenies intro.[4]

Episodes are available on BBC Redux, however this service is only available to those with a functioning @bbc.co.uk e-mail address.

Intro

There are different scenes in the intro. A description of the scene will be on the left while the known episode would be on the right:

  • Bella smashing a teapot - 'Kettle and Teapot'.
  • Jake throwing sand at the camera - 'Throwing'.
  • Milo with his birthday cake - 'Candles'
  • Jake holding a breadknife - 'Knifes'
