Watch Episode


  • This is the first episode to include the Falling Down Dance.
  • Tinky Winky was the 'boo' shouter
  • Po was the missing teletubby
  • It is very rare when Tinky Winky falls down to look at the clouds and that Tinky Winky's buttlock sound is Dipsy's buttlock sound
  • This episode was originally going to have the Falling Down Dance before the tree but the crew decided to put the Falling Down Dance after the tree. However, this idea was later used in Walking In The Woods.
