The Teletubbies listen to a voice trumpet recite the nursery rhyme 'Two Little Dickie Birds' before watching some children learning about number 2.

Plot (US Version 1)

The Teletubbies slide down the slide inside Home Hill. They enjoy Tubby Toast until the Magic Windmill spins. Following this, the characters watch some children learning about the number 2. A magical flower cloud appears in Teletubbyland. It rains magic flowers on Tinky-Winky, Laa-Laa's ball, Po's scooter and Dipsy's hat. But Dipsy doesn't like it, so he runs away. After that, the Teletubbies do the Splashing Dance before Tubby Bye Bye.

Featuring: The Children at Treasure Island School, Florida
