The Big Purple Flower is a segment in Teletubbies. It was featured in the episode, Colors - Purple.


One day in Teletubbyland, something grew. A tall green stem came growing from the ground with four big green leaves. Then, a tiny green bud appears on top of the stem. The little bud starts to grow big and big. Then, its green petals open up and then, its petals on the inside were purple. The narrator said "It was a big purple flower." Laa-Laa comes by and said "Eh-oh!" to the viewers. She saw the purple flower and thought it was beautiful. Then, Laa-Laa smelled the purple flower, so she did. She didn't like the smell of it, because she thought the big beautiful purple flower smelled horrible and said "PUUUU!!" The Baby Sun giggles. Next, Dipsy comes to the scene. He says "Eh-oh!" both to the viewers and Laa-Laa. He saw the big purple flower. Laa-Laa told him all about it. She said, "Dipsy, the purple flower." Dipsy asked, "Yes?" Laa-Laa explained to him that the flower smelled horrible as she said "PUUUU!!" Dipsy got a little confused of what she said, so he smelled the purple flower. Laa-Laa couldn't watch as she says "Oh no!" Dipsy smelled the flower with a funny noise from his nose, it made his hat flew off of his head. He didn't like the smell of it either, so he said "PUUUU!!" He thinks that the purple flower smelled horrible. He and Laa-Laa giggle as they kept saying "PUUUU!!" Then, Tinky-Winky comes to the scene and says "Eh-Oh!" both to the viewers and Laa-Laa and Dipsy. Tinky Winky saw the big purple flower, so he said "Oooh, look! Big purple flower!" Laa-Laa and Dipsy said "Uh-oh!", when they think that Tinky Winky will think that the flower will smell horrible too. Tinky Winky smelled the flower with a big sniff, and he thinks that the big purple flower smelled lovely. Laa-Laa and Dipsy got confused as they said "Lovely??" Then, Tinky Winky said "Lovely!" and he, Dipsy and Laa-Laa (including the Baby Sun) laughed. And then, the big purple flower disappeared. Then, they moaned and said "All gone!" At the end, they give a "Big Hug!" Teletubbies love each other very much.
