Plot (US American Version)

In the opening scene, Tinky Winky jumps around on a hill. After he says, “Eh Oh!” to the viewers, he calls Dipsy, Laa Laa, and Po to come over to the hill. Then, all the Teletubbies greet the viewers before the windmill spins. After that, Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po watch children play statues. The Teletubbies then play a hiding game inside the house. Tinky Winky, Laa-Laa, and Po hide from Dipsy. Laa-Laa hides between the beds, Po hides under the arch, and Tinky Winky hides behind the Tubby Toaster. When Dipsy looks for the other Teletubbies, he can't find them. But when Noo Noo tidies up, he finds the other Teletubbies, then Dipsy finds them. The Teletubbies do the extended version of Tip Toe Dance before Tubby Bye Bye.
