Playing in the Rain is the seventh episode of the series. It first aired on 8th April, 1997.

Plot

A cloud appears in Teletubbyland. The Teletubbies watch some children playing in the rain. Then the Teletubbies rush off to do the Splashing Dance by the Home Hill. A cloud makes a puddle in Teletubbyland and all the Teletubbies end up stepping in the puddle. The Windmill starts to spin so the Teletubbies rush off to their usual destination in Teletubbyland. The whole Teletubbyland is filled with water and the Teletubbies watch as three magic ships sail through Teletubbyland. After the Three Ships has finished, the Magic Windmill stops spinning and it is time for Tubby Bye Bye.

Featuring: The Pupils of Jordan's Village Nursery School, Beaconsfield

Plot (US Version)

Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po have lots of fun dancing up and down. Then, they watch some children putting on their coats and getting very wet! The Teletubbies love puddles and splashing about as they perform The Splashing Dance. Finally, all of Teletubbyland is filled with water and the Teletubbies watch as three magic ships sail through before it's time for Tubby Bye Bye.
