Dipsy with a piece of tubby toast.

Back in Teletubbyland, Laa-Laa feels like having Tubby Toast. Tinky-Winky, out for a walk, smells the Tubby Toast and decides to go and have some as well. But the Tubby Toaster makes too much Tubby Toast all over inside the Home Hill! Soon there is Tubby Toast all the table, the floor, the beds and Tinky-Winky! There is Tubby Toast everywhere! Lots of Tubby Toast for Noo Noo, for Po, for Laa-Laa, for Dipsy, for Tinky-Winky and for the rabbits! Lots of Tubby Toast for everybody! Afterwards, the Magic Windmill stops spinning (offscreen) and the Teletubbies run outside as it's time for Tubby Bye-Bye.
