Watch Episode


  • When Dipsy is shown standing right next to the Magic Windmill and the close ups of Dipsy, the Magic Windmill can be heard whooshing despite the fact it has no sparkles(whooshing sound is faintly heard in the closeups of Dipsy), making the clip rare.
  • Tinky Winky was the boo shouter in UK Version. Laa-Laa was the boo shouter in US Version
  • Po was the missing teletubby in both UK and US Version.
  • The US Version has The Falling Down Dance after the TV Reciever Event before The Animal Parade (no elephant sound). The UK Version has no dance or magical event.
  • In the US Version, a fade effect is used after The Animal Parade, the camera fades to the windmill stop spinning until it fades to the Voice Trumpet saying Time for Tubby Bye Bye two times.


  • Because different windmill props are used, when the "Dipsy goes for A walk" segment begins, in the first shot the windmill is shown in it's normal color, then in the scene where Dipsy approaches it, the propeller turns brown, then when Dipsy starts walking, the color changes back to it's usual color.
