The Teletubbies wake up for Tubby Custard. However, Po spills her Tubby Custard on the floor and Tinky-Winky slips on it and slides around the house and up the slide, while the Noo Noo has to tidy up the mess. Tinky Winky comes back inside and his apron is covered in splats of Tubby Custard, so Noo-Noo tidies up the splats. When he joins the other Teletubbies, he realises there is no Tubby Custard in his bowl, so Dipsy kindly gives Tinky Winky some of his. The Teletubbies watch some children ice-skating. Tinky Winky and Po decide to hold hands, then Dipsy and Laa-Laa join in. Then the Magic Windmill prepares to stop spinning, they say 'Uh-Oh!', the Magic Windmill stops spinning and it is time for Tubby Bye Bye.

Featuring: Adele Penny with Bradley Fernandes, Laura Highcock, Amy Morin, Vivian Parnell-Murphy, Shona Patel-Mehta, Ian Paterson and Nathalie Shepherd

Plot (US American Version)

The Teletubbies wake up for Tubby Custard. However, Po spills her Tubby Custard on the floor and Tinky Winky slips on it and started to slip and slide around the house and up the slide. Tinky Winky came back inside and his apron was covered in splats of Tubby Custard, so the Noo Noo cleaned up the splats. Tinky Winky had no Tubby Custard left in his bowl, so Dipsy kindly gave him some of his. Then the Magic Windmill spins and the Teletubbies leave their Tubby Custard to watch some children ice skating. Later in Teletubbyland, Tinky Winky and Po decide to hold hands, then Dipsy and Laa Laa join in. After that, the Teletubbies do the Tip Toe Dance (extended version) before the sun giggles for Tubby Bye-Bye.
