Plot (US American Version)

Po decides to have a blowy day. She blows the blankets off the Teletubbies' beds, she blows their Tubby Toast away which Noo Noo tidies up and she blows the Teletubbies up the slide. The Teletubbies watch some children making bubbles. Laa-Laa plays catch with the ball indoors but it starts to bounce around the house. The other Teletubbies help Laa-Laa try and catch the ball, but the Noo-Noo catches the ball first and tidies it up. The Teletubbies chase Noo-Noo until he gives Laa-Laa her ball back. The Teletubbies give Noo-Noo a Big Hug. Afterwards, the Teletubbies do The Happy Dance before the sun screams for Tubby Bye Bye.


  • Tinky Winky was the boo shouter in the UK Version. Po was the boo shouter in the US Version.
  • Laa Laa was the missing teletubby in the UK Version. Tinky Winky was the missing teletubby in the US version.
  • The US Version of this episode has The Happy Dance instead of The Splashing Dance, and The Three Ships was cut out from it.
  • It's the first episode to include the full version of the Home Hill 3 opening shot, which its short version was introduced in the episode The Beach.
  • This is the last episode where the Teletubbies are silent during the Splashing Dance. The Splashing Dance also ends once the Teletubbies all jump in the puddle for the 2nd time. Instead of them jumping out of the puddle and posing, they cheer as the play in the puddle and then it cuts to the voice trumpet for Tubby Bye-Bye.
  • When the Windmill spins for the Bubbles TV Receiver in the US Version, the Windmill is heard with the beginning of the Magical Event tune.


  • At the opening segment, when the Noo Noo goes close to Tinky Winky, Dipsy's blanket is on his bed, but when the Noo Noo tries to tidy up Tinky Winky's blanket, Dipsy's blanket is on the floor.
