  • Dipsy was the boo shouter
  • Like Dance with the Teletubbies, Simon Shelton only played Tinky Winky in one segment. That segment being the Happy Dance.
  • This VHS features the rabbits' song. It is used twice and both versions are short. The first time as a transition into Little Miss Muffet. The second time as a transition into the voice trumpets making clock ticking sounds.
  • In the German version the Grand Old Duke of York video was replaced with My Mum's Keyboard.
  • For some reason, in the US version the Twinkle Twinkle segment and The Gingerbread Boy switched places with the Grand Old Duke of York segments.
  • The missing teletubby was Laa-Laa
  • This is the first video to be released in 1998 and to have the present BBC logo and the BBC video ident from 1997 to 2006.
