Five Voice Trumpets rise outside the house and they start making ticking noises. The Teletubbies run outside to see, then the Windmill starts spinning. They watch some children dancing while King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys sing Hickory Dickory Dock. Back in Teletubbyland, Po is making some adjustments and then Tinky Winky slides into the house. A voice trumpet appears and recites 'Hickory Dickory Dock'. Tinky Winky and Po laugh as they act out the nursery rhyme. Tinky Winky pretends to be the mouse and goes up the slide, Po pulls a lever and a big bell rings, then Tinky Winky comes back down. When the voice trumpet says 'The clock struck eight', Po pulls the lever eight times and Tinky Winky goes up and down the slide eight times. After that, Tinky Winky and Po bump bottoms and tummies while saying, "Hickory Dickory Dock!" Then the Magic Windmill starts to spin and the Teletubbies watch the Magic Tree before Tubby Bye-Bye.

Featuring: King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys, The Pupils of Chuckery Infants School, Walsall
