A watering can appears in Teletubbyland. Laa-Laa finds it and she waters some flowers who say 'Lovely water!'. Then a voice trumpet rises up and sings the nursery rhyme 'Mary Mary quite contrary'. Laa-Laa has fun watering flowers. Then the Magic Windmill starts spinning, so the Teletubbies watch some children make some flowers out of paper.

The Teletubbies play a game. Tinky Winky walks around some hills, then the other Teletubbies walk around the hills but they walk in the opposite direction. But suddenly, Tinky Winky stops and starts walking the same way as the other Teletubbies. They all bump into each other and end up falling over! They then have a Big Hug.

The Magic Windmill spins again and the Teletubbies watch the animals march through Teletubbyland. The animals soon vanish and the Magic Windmill stops spinning as it's time for Tubby Bye-Bye.

Featuring: Ella Ainsworth, Kai Barker, Guy Brayn and Anastasia Testen.
