Be Safe with the Tweenies was a series of 27 shorts about being safe around certain situations (like railways and/or sheds).[1] These shorts aired on the British children's channel CBeebies between 2003 and 2008. As of now, two of the shorts remain unavailable for public consumption, including one that was reportedly banned from broadcast due to the use of knives. The shorts are also known as the Tweenies Safety Shorts.[2]
