Dipsy and Laa Laa listen to a voice trumpet singing Hey Diddle Diddle. The Magic Windmill spins and then Laa Laa receives a video of some children dancing with King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys as they sing 'Hey Diddle Diddle'. Then later inside the Tubbytronic superdome, a voice trumpet rises and sings the operatic version of Hey Diddle Diddle and the Teletubbies join in. The Teletubbies run around the Tubbytronic Superdome and the voice trumpet keeps singing Hey Diddle Diddle once more until the Teletubbies say 'Again, again!' But the voice trumpet goes down and the Magic Windmill starts spinning. Then the Teletubbies run out of the house with the Magic Windmill still spinning until moments later when it stops spinning and it is time for Tubby Bye Bye.
