Title card used for the shorts.

Status: Partially Lost

Be Safe with the Tweenies was a series of 27 shorts based on the popular CBeebies series The Tweenies made to educate its target audience on being safe around certain situations as the title suggests.[1] Also known as the Tweenies Safety Shorts.[2], these shorts aired on the British children's channel CBeebies between 2003 and 2008, and had little to no media coverage on its content despite the programme's popularity. As of now, all but two of the shorts have made their way online, leaving the others unavailable for public consumption, including one that was reportedly banned from broadcast due to the use of knives.

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