Stop and Go

The Teletubbies run outside to play with their favourite things. Then the Magic Windmill spins and the Teletubbies watch some children learning about the number 1. Inside the Home Hill, it is time for Teletubbies to sleep in their beds, and a voice trumpet rises up singing them a good to sleep song. A moment later, Po is gone. She's outside riding her scooter. When she returns and goes back to bed, Laa-Laa is gone. She's outside playing with her ball. When she returns and goes back to bed, Dipsy is gone. He's outside walking with his hat. When he returns and goes back to bed, Tinky Winky is gone. He's outside jumping with his bag. When he returns and goes back to bed, all the Teletubbies go back to sleep. But then, all the Teletubbies have gone. They're all outside with their favourite things. Even though they're suppose to be in bed, they don't want to go back to bed and so they run away.

Plot (US American Version)

In Teletubbyland, the Teletubbies turns wearing and dancing in the skirt. Laa-Laa makes Dipsy wear it even though Dipsy doesn't want to. Laa-Laa chases Dipsy until he wears the skirt. While Dipsy does his dance, the skirt falls off him and he runs away. The Magic Windmill spins from its Birds Eye View and the Teletubbies watch some children learning about the number 1. Later, the Teletubbies take turns to stand on one leg. Afterwards, the Windmill starts to spin and the Teletubbies watch the carousel with The Dancing Bear dancing 1 time before the Magic Windmill stops spinning. And then it was time for Tubby Bye Bye.
