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 2002 and 2009. Only three and a bit of the shorts has come to light, as of now.[2] The shorts are also known as the 'Tweenies Safety Shorts'.[3]


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.
