Jumping is the 22nd episode of the original series. It first aired on 29th April, 1997.

The Teletubbies are feeling very happy so they all jump around a tree, Laa-Laa jumps away and Dipsy goes to Hide. Tinky-Winky and Po run around Teletubbyland, but soon Tinky Winky runs away leaving Po on her own. She falls down, lies in the Sun and then rolls away. The Magic Windmill starts to spin and the Teletubbies watch some children jumping. Later in Teletubbyland, Dipsy jumps for joy when he sees a beautiful flower. Laa Laa jumps to catch her ball, Po jumps to her scooter and Tinky Winky jumps for fun while he is wearing the skirt. A voice trumpet plays Piano music, and Tinky Winky jumps on a hill, in front of a tree and in front of the house. After all that jumping, Tinky Winky falls down, feeling very tired. The Magic Windmill starts spinning and the Teletubbies go to watch the carousel with the Tap Dancing Teddy Bear dancing twice. Afterwards, the Teletubbies do the Stamping and Stepping Dance before Tubby Bye-Bye.
