Ball Stuck in the tree is a Teletubbies segment. It appeared in the episode, The Helicopter.


Laa Laa plays with her ball and says "Eh-oh!" to the viewers. She continues playing when suddenly she throws her ball so high and far, that it lands in a large tree. Laa-Laa runs straight to the tree. She jumps up and tries to get her ball, but she isn't tall enough to reach her ball. Dipsy is taller than

her, but he isn't tall enough either. Tinky Winky is taller than them both and tries to reach Laa-Laa's ball, but even he is isn't tall enough. Laa-Laa is very sad because she can't reach her ball, but however, Po thinks she can reach the ball. The other Teletubbies start laughing because Po is the smallest Teletubby of all. She borrows Tinky Winky's bag, spins around and lets it go. It knocks Laa-Laa's ball out of the tree. Laa-Laa catches her ball and Tinky Winky catches his bag. Laa-Laa is very happy to have her ball back. The narrator and the Teletubbies say "Clever Po". The Magic Windmill spins and the Teletubbies go to watch the Three Ships.
