The butterfly

The Butterfly is a segment in Teletubbies. The segment first occurred in the episode, Tweet Tweet.


One day in Teletubbyland, a butterfly came flying by. Laa-Laa came by as she saw the butterfly flying around. The butterfly landed on her hand. The narrator told Laa-Laa to keep still while the butterfly is on her hand. Just then, the butterfly lifts off of her hand and flies back around until Laa-Laa said "Again! Again!", so it landed back on her hand. Next, Dipsy drops by and says "Eh-Oh!" to the viewers. And when he said "Eh-oh" to Laa-Laa, she said "Shh! Dipsy, look." Dipsy sees the butterfly and asked "Oooh, what's that?" Laa-Laa said "It a butterfly." Dipsy looks at it and says, "Oooh, butterfly." The butterfly lifts off of Laa-Laa's hand again and they watch it flutter all around until it lands on Dipsy's arm. Dipsy wants the butterfly to get off of his arm, but the narrator and Laa-Laa said, "Keep still, Dipsy." In a few seconds, the butterfly lifts off of Dipsy's arm and lands onto Laa-Laa's hand again until it flies away. Next, on a different location of Teletubbyland, Po came by on her scooter, comes and says "Eh-oh!" to the viewers as the butterfly flies by and lands on a flower. Po sees the butterfly on the flower and says, "Oooh!" Then, it flew off the flower and landed on Po's scooter. It lifted off of her scooter and starts flying around Po asking where did the butterfly go after she noticed that it disappeared off of her scooter until it landed on top of her antenna. The narrator said, "Keep still, Po." Dipsy and Laa-Laa drop by and said "Keep still, Po. Shh!" while the butterfly lies on top of her antenna. The butterfly then flutters and then lands on Laa-Laa's hand again. And then, it flutters off of her hand and then comes close to Dipsy's face. They watched the butterfly flying and fluttering around up in the air. Next, outside of the Tubbytronic Superdome, Tinky-Winky drops by and says "Eh-Oh!" Then, the butterfly flies by and landed on Tinky-Winky's bag and went indoors. Inside, the butterfly flew off of Tinky Winky's bag and flies around. Tinky-Winky sees the butterfly and asked "What's that?" The Noo-Noo watched it fluttering. Dipsy, Laa-Laa, and Po dropped in and he showed them the butterfly fluttering around as it landed on the Tubby Table. As the butterfly landed on Noo-Noo's sucker, they said "Uh-Oh!" Just then, Noo-Noo sneezed, which made the butterfly fly away up the hole of the roof. At the end, the narrator and the Teletubbies said goodbye to the butterfly.
