The Teletubbies watch some children learn about the number '2'. A magic cloud with magic powers, rains special magic flowers all over Teletubbyland.

Plot (US Version 2)

The Teletubbies Everywhere segment features Tinky Winky making two rectangles, The Noo-Noo counts two and the film from India shows children demonstrating the number 2 using: apples, babies, candles, numbers, balls, cotton candy, horses, and red buses. In Teletubbyland, the Tubbies dance a bumps-a-daisy dance. All the Teletubbies are fast asleep, when Tinky Winky wakes up and sings a loud song, which then wakes everyone else up. It's so loud that Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po run away. Then Po sings a quiet song and it sends them back to sleep again.
