  • Tubby Bye-Bye is the closing sequence of a Teletubbies episode. It takes place at the end of every single episode of both TV series. There are two things that signify that the Tubby Bye-Bye sequence has started: 
    TtlByeBye

    The Teletubbies during Tubby Bye-Bye.

    The Magic Windmill will stop spinning, even if there's no Magical Events, or the Sun Baby giggles, unless that would transition to another scene.

A Voice Trumpet rises and says "Time for Tubby Bye-Bye!", which it repeats 3 times. The Teletubbies (Shown in the picture opposite) moan because they don't like to say goodbye. The Baby Sun giggles. The Narrator (Tim Whitnall in the UK and Canada) ( Rolf Saxon in the US) says "Bye-Bye." to each Teletubby and they duck down behind the hills they are standing behind. The Teletubbies silently giggle and one pops up, shouting "Boo!" (A different Teletubby does this in each episode) followed by the others popping up and giggling. The Narrator says "No" (which the teletubbies repeat and giggle again) before he says bye bye to each a second time. This time, the teletubbies stay behind the hills. The baby sun sets as a voiceover says "The sun is setting in the sky. Teletubbies say goodbye." As the credits roll, the Teletubbies jump into the hole at the top of their house. Afterwards, the setting baby sun dissapears behind the hills and the episode ends. 

Trivia

  • When Laa-Laa is the boo shouter, the Teletubbies voices sound different, but episodes with the other tubbies sayingas the boo shouter, it sounds the same.
  • In the Teletubbies Videos, and on PBS, all four Teletubbies pop out of the hole to say "Bye-Bye!" for the final time at the end of the episode.
  • Some videos, such as Here Come The Teletubbies, Dance with the Teletubbies, and Teletubbies Nursery Rhymes, have the Tubby Bye-Bye Tune with the Xylophone and Piano playing when all the Teletubbies pop up to say bye bye at the very end of the video. Other videos, such as Uh-Oh! Messes and Muddies (Funny Day in the U.S.), Big Hug, and Musical Playtime, have the tune but without the Xylophone and Piano playing. It can not be heard on Teletubbies: Favourite Games.
  • The Windmill is seen in its Start/Stop Spinning animation with the ground when the Teletubbies jump into the Superdome, spinning slowly without sparkles.
  • When Po is the boo shouter, the Teletubbies do not giggle before Po says "boo".
  • In the PBS version, a female narrator is in the Voice Trumpet, and Rolf Saxon says the rhyme and signs off to the Teletubbies. Also, one of the credits say To Find Out More About Teletubbies: PBS Online at www.pbs.org after the last Teletubby jumps into the Tubbytronic Superdome at Home Hill.
  • After the narrator says, "The sun is setting in the sky. Teletubbies say goodbye." all the Teletubbies starting with the Teletubby that has a 'boo' shouter (i.e. Dipsy was first, then Laa-Laa, then Po, and finally, Tinky-Winky) are going home to say "Bye-bye!" and then jump in the hole of the Tubbytronic Superdome.
  • There is also a snowy version of the Tubby Bye-Bye segment used in the snow themed episodes. There are some differences between this version and the normal version. For example, the Voice Trumpet appears to be rising between hills, as opposed to rising from behind some flowers in the normal Tubby Bye-Bye. To add to that, the Voice Trumpet doesn't turn it's head like it does in the normal Tubby Bye-Bye. Finally, the Voice Trumpet is covered in snow, which, of course, is different from the normal version.
  • On the reboot series, the narrator said "The sun is setting in the sky. Teletubbies say bye-bye" instead of "The sun is setting in the sky. Teletubbies say goodbye"
