Plot (US Version)

Tinky Winky and Dipsy are standing on different hills. They hear Po coming and she arrives between the two hills. She asks Tinky Winky for a Big Hug and rushes up the hill to him. Then she asks Dipsy for a Big Hug and rushes up the other hill to Dipsy. Then the Teletubbies watch Michael, who lives in South Africa, as he looks for chameleon's in his back garden. He looks in a bush and sees one. It's green and looks like a leaf. He describes the other colors and watches it walk through the bush. Then he watches as the chameleon catches a fly with its long tongue. Laa-Laa is playing with her ball. She throws her ball up in the air and then catches it. Laa-Laa throws the ball to Tinky Winky and he catches it. Then Laa-Laa throws the ball to Dipsy, but he doesn't catch it and the ball bounces away. Dipsy chases after the ball as it bounces through Teletubbyland. It bounces up very high and Dipsy catches it when it comes down. The Teletubbies play follow my leader.
