UK Version


The Magic Tree

Tinky Winky, Dipsy and Laa Laa go running along the hills. Then they say "Eh Oh!" to the viewers. Po appears and goes: "Boo! Eh Oh!" and joins the others. The Magic Windmill spins and the Teletubbies go off to watch some children taking photographs of each other's faces. Later in Teletubbyland, a telescope appears and Dipsy has a good look around. He sees flowers, rabbits, trees and the House. Dipsy then hears some noises and looking through the Telescope, he sees Laa Laa playing with her ball, Tinky Winky opening and shutting his bag and Po smelling some flowers. After that, he sees the Teletubbies having a big hug so he rushes off to join in. The Magic Windmill starts to spin. The Teletubbies say: "Uh-Oh!" and they rush off to watch the magical event. The Magic Tree appears in Teletubbyland, along with the five doves before the Magic Windmill stops spinning and it's Tubby Bye-Bye.
