Teletubbies Splashing Dance

Teletubbies Splashing Dance

The Splashing/Puddle Dance is the third of the dances that the Teletubbies do. It was first shown in the episode Playing in the Rain. The Teletubbies do this dance outside the house

A puddle is outside the house. Dipsy and Tinky Winky walk around the house to the puddle while Laa Laa and Po walk out of the house. Dipsy and Laa say Eh Oh to each other. When the dance begins the Teletubbies jump into the puddle one by one and then out of the puddle one by one. Then they all jump into the puddle together and have fun splashing around and then they jump out of the puddle together. Then they jump one by one into the puddle and out again and then they all jump in the puddle together again and splash around. Then they jump out of the puddle and pose and cheer and the dance ends.

This dance does not have an extended version in the television series. However, in Teletubbies-The Album there is an extended version with a music key change.
