In the Teletubbies' Superdome, Dipsy has Tubby Toast and makes some adjustments on the Control Panel, but the Noo-Noo tidies up his Tubby Toast and Dipsy chases after him. The Windmill spins and the Teletubbies go to watch Amy, Cameron and Alice playing in their paddling pool. Later, the Teletubbies do the Splashing Dance by the Home Hill. Then the Magic Windmill spins and the Lion & the Bear appear in Teletubbyland. The Magic Windmill stops spinning and it's time for Tubby Bye-Bye.

Featuring: Cameron & Alice Denton and Amy Leigh-Quine


  • Like Dirty Dog and The Pier, this episode has no new footage. The opening scene of Dipsy and Noo-Noo was also shown in My Mum's Keyboard except in this episode, it's shorter.
  • This episode has the rabbit song (same version from Swimming with Stephanie). However instead of fading to the opening shot 'Home Hill 2', when it ends, the camera cuts to the opening shot 'Right Path 1'. This version was featured in the VHS's Favourite Things and Bedtime.
  • The Paddling Pool video was featured in the VHS Favourite Things.
  • The Teletubbies remain sitting on the hill after the The Lion and Bear sketch. However, when they see the The Magic Windmill, the windmill freezes and it immediately fades to Tubby Bye-Bye. The same thing happens in Big Hug!.
  • The boo shouter was Tinky Winky.
  • Dipsy is picked for the TV Event.
  • Laa Laa was the missing Teletubby.
  • This episode did not have the typical Noo Noo chasing music, but different music playing the tune of Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush
