Teletubbies Living in Flats-0

Laa-Laa dances with her ball and the Teletubbies watch a boy describing why he likes to live in flats. A balloon appears in Teletubbyland and the Teletubbies follow it around until Po catches it and they all take turns to hold it. After they have their turns, all the Teletubbies wanted to hold the balloon, but without any success, they accidentally let go of it and it flies away into the sky to disappear.

Featuring: Alan Henderson, Sharon and Ramone Moody

Plot (US Version)

The Teletubbies slide down the slide to have some Tubby Toast. After that, the Magic Windmill starts spinning and they run outside to watch  a boy describing why he likes to live in apartments. A balloon appears in Teletubbyland and the Teletubbies follow it around and they tried to catch hold it, but it keeps flying faster no matter how hard they tried. They keep following the balloon until flies away. Then, the Magic Windmill starts spinning and the Teletubbies run off to watch The Magic House with the Singing Man singing in the Top Right Window. Afterwards, the Magic Windmill stops spinning and the Teletubbies do The Falling Down Dance before The Magic Windmill stops spinning again (this time, the camera zooms to the close up of The Magic Windmill) for Tubby Bye-Bye.
