Tinky Winky, Dipsy and Laa-Laa run up and down the hills to say 'Eh-Oh!', just as Po pops up and says 'Boo! Eh-Oh!'. Then the Magic Windmill starts to spin as they watch some children joining in the music with Debbie. Laa-Laa makes up a song which makes the other Teletubbies run away. Then they do the Tip Toe Dance (shortened version) before Tubby Bye-Bye.

Featuring: Debbie Ivens and The Crescendo Kids

Plot (US American Version)


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 joining in the music with Debbie. A butterfly appears in Teletubbyland. Eventually, the butterfly goes into the house, where it lands on the Noo-Noo's nose, making him sneeze. The butterfly flies away and the Teletubbies say goodbye to it. The Teletubbies do the Bumping Dance (extended version) before Tubby Bye-Bye.


  • This is the first appearance of Debbie.
  • This is the first episode with the shortened version of the Tip Toe Dance.
  • This episode re-uses the opening segment from Photo Faces. The only differences are the opening shot and the drum beat.
  • The US Version has the Bumping Dance (extended version) instead of the Tip Toe Dance (shortened version).
  • Dipsy was the boo shouter in both versions.
  • Tinky Winky is the missing teletubby in the UK Version. Dipsy was the missing teletubby in the US Version.
  • Apparently, this is the third episode of the show that aired in the US on PBS Kids.


  • Before Laa-Laa comes into the House, the other Teletubbies put their hands to their mouths to say 'Uh-Oh', but their voices are not heard. This also happens before their run outside.
