It was then re-released on DVD along with Here come the Teletubbies in 2000. It was then re-released on VHS/DVD in 2003, and again in 2009 along with Ready Steady Go! on the DVD 'Ready Steady Dance!'

  • This video marks the first appearance of the Follow the Leader Dance. It later made it's first television appearance in the 1998 episode Carnival II.
  • Before each dance (except for the Follow the Leader Dance and the Indonesian version of the Stamping and Stepping Dance and the Walking Dance) the Narrator states the name of each dance, although The narrator states the follow the leader dance in the US version.
  • In between some of the dances, the flowers comment on the dancing.
  • The second TV Event featuring a group of children dancing was featured exclusively on this video and never appeared on television.
  • In the US Version of the Trit Trot segment, the voice trumpet just says "Trot" repeatedly instead of "Trit Trot" repeatedly.
  • This is the first video to feature Simon Shelton as Tinky Winky (He played him in the Follow the Leader Dance)
  • Po was the boo shouter
  • Tinky Winky was the missing teletubby


  • The 2001 VHS had Dot and Dash on the cover, however, it both opens and closes with the 1996 PBS P-Pals logo.
  • In the UK version of the VHS, when Tinky Winky lays down after the jumping for fun activity is about to end and the Windmill is spinning when he says "Very tired!" there is no music despite the fact the TV Reciever event is happening. However, this was fixed in the US Version as there is now the TV reciever music playing when Tinky Winky says "Very tired!" in the US version.
