  • This episode marks the first appearance of Laa-Laa's Ball.
  • When Dipsy is shown standing right next to the Magic Windmill, it can faintly be heard whooshing.
  • Tinky Winky was the boo shouter in UK Version.
  • Po was the missing Teletubby


  • Because different windmill props are used, when the "Dipsy goes for A walk" segment begins, in the first shot the windmill is shown in it's normal color, then in the scene where Dipsy approaches it, the propeller turns brown, then when Dipsy starts walking, the color changes back to it's usual color.
  • In a couple scenes, A farm silo is visible in the background.
