Po sleeps in Tinky Winky's bed. Tinky Winky tries sleeping in Po's bed, but can't get comfortable and the bed is too little. Next he tries sleeping at the table, but can't get comfortable there either since the table is too hard. Then he tries sleeping on the slide, but can't get comfortable there either and the slide is too slippery. Now Tinky Winky has nowhere to sleep. But then, Po wakes up, allowing Tinky Winky to sleep in his bed. The Windmill starts spinning and the Teletubbies run outside to watch Andy Brown show some children some snails. The Teletubbies dance a Conga before Tubby Bye Bye.

Featuring: Andy Brown with Giacomo Alger, Anil Jilka and Jodi Richards

Plot (US Version #2)

The Teletubbies Everywhere segment features counting four, fast and slow and the film from Korea shows some children talking a walk with their uncle to search for snails. In Teletubbyland, Po rides her scooter too fast and knocks the other Tubbies over. When she falls over herself, she joins the others to watch the magic tree grow in Teletubbyland and then they all take part in a big dance.

    This episode includes a rare animation of the Windmill(same clip used in See-saw, Ned's Potatoes, Hey Diddle Diddle, Making Salad, and Larette Tap Dancing but with added sparkles, this version is also seen in Hey diddle diddle).
  • This episode re-uses the opening segment from Painting with Hands and Feet. However, it is used at the end of this episode and instead of the windmill spinning, the Tubby Bye-Bye voice trumpet rises.
  • Dipsy was the boo shouter
  • Tinky Winky was the missing teletubby.
