How Things Swim



Air Date

9 December 1997

Little Baby


Naughty Horse Returns

The Teletubbies run over to each other but the Magic Windmill spins and they watch Andy Brown and some children visiting an aquarium to learn how things swim in water. Then they play an in-and-out game when a cloud appears in Teletubbyland. They go in when it rains, but come back out when it stops. However, after a while, the cloud drifts off, making the Teletubbies disappointed. Despite this, they continue to play their in-and-out game a little more before Tubby Bye Bye. 
Andy and the kids look and see the clam

Featuring: Andy Brown with Paul Geaney, Gene O'Connor and Michelle O'Connell
