Initially, this show was considered to be lost media. However, following years of uncovering particular episodes through BBC Redux, all but one of the episodes have been uncovered, with the only unavailable short being to do with knives.
''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.
 
  
Episodes are available on [https://www.bbcredux.com/ BBC Redux]. However, this service is only available to those with a functioning @bbc.co.uk e-mail address.
