Plot (US American Version)

The Teletubbies do the Jumping Dance on the path before the Magic Windmill spins and the Teletubbies watch children rolling things up and down a hill. Later in Teletubbyland, Po falls off her scooter and rolls away. She rolls into Tinky Winky. Then Tinky-Winky rolls into Dipsy. Then Dipsy rolls into Laa Laa. All the Teletubbies roll into the house. Their favorite things follow them. The Teletubbies run back outside with their favorite things and they have a Big Hug. The Magic Windmill spins and the Teletubbies watch the Tap Dancing Teddy Bear. Afterward, Laa-Laa goes out to play with her ball. She bounces it and then throws it. But she accidentally gets it stuck up a tree. Laa-Laa tries to jump up and reach it, but she isn't tall enough to reach her ball Dipsy tries to reach the ball, but he isn't tall enough either. Even Tinky-Winky isn't tall enough to reach the ball even when he tries to. Laa-Laa feels very sad because she can't reach her ball. However, Po thinks she can reach the ball, even though she is the smallest Teletubby of all. She borrows Tinky-Winky's bag, spins it around, and releases it. The bag hits the ball and it falls out of the tree. Laa-Laa is overjoyed to have her ball back when she is happy and feels better, Tinky-Winky gets his bag back and the Teletubbies and the narrator say 'Clever Po!' before Tubby Bye-Bye.
