Laa-Laa walks outside of the superdome, and the Teletubbies do the Running Away Dance. A voice trumpet recites the nursery rhyme 'Twiddle Dump, Twaddle Dump, Twenty-one' which makes Laa-Laa laugh. Then the Magic Windmill spins and the Teletubbies watch some children learning about the number 1. Then the Teletubbies turns wearing and dancing in the skirt. Laa-Laa makes Dipsy wear it even though Dipsy doesn't want to. Laa-Laa chases Dipsy until he wears the skirt. While Dipsy does his dance, the skirt falls off him and he runs away.

Stop and Go

The Teletubbies run outside to play with their favourite things. Then the Magic Windmill spins and the Teletubbies watch some children learning about the number 1. Inside the Home Hill, it is time for Teletubbies to sleep in their beds, and a voice trumpet rises up singing them a good to sleep song. A moment later, Po is gone. She's outside riding her scooter. When she returns and goes back to bed, Laa-Laa is gone. She's outside playing with her ball. When she returns and goes back to bed, Dipsy is gone. He's outside walking with his hat. When he returns and goes back to bed, Tinky Winky is gone. He's outside jumping with his bag. When he returns and goes back to bed, all the Teletubbies go back to sleep. But then, all the Teletubbies have gone. They're all outside with their favourite things. Even though they're suppose to be in bed, they don't want to go back to bed and so they run away.
