They Faint

All that Tubby Custard made the Teletubbies fall asleep.

Tubby Custard Time! is a segment in Teletubbies. It appeared in Cafe Chocolate and the US version of Washing Up


Inside the Tubbytronic Superdome, the Noo-Noo tidies up the house. He stops and sees the Teletubbies coming down the slide. They put on their aprons, and go to the Tubby Custard Machine. It is time for Tubby Custard. Tinky-Winky goes first. He pulls a lever to make a Tubby Custard Bowl appear. He then presses another lever to get the Tubby Custard Tap to come down. Then he presses a button to fill the bowl with Tubby Custard. He pulls the levers and waits for the other Teletubbies to make their custard. Dipsy is next. He pulls two levers. One for the bowl, one for the tap. Then he fills the bowl with Tubby Custard. He pulls the levers again, and then it's Laa-Laa's turn. She pulls two levers. One for the bowl, one for the tap. Then, she presses the button to make Tubby Custard out of the Tubby Custard tap. Once that's done, she pulls two levers again. Finally, it is Po's turn. She does the same thing. Pull the two levers. But then the Tubby Custard Machine stops working for a very brief moment but then it starts working again and Po fills the bowl with Tubby Custard. She pulls the levers again. It was time to eat and the Teletubbies arrive at the table and begin to eat Tubby Custard. The Teletubbies eat their Tubby Custard and once finished, they run outside. They arrive at a field where their favourite things are and began playing with it. Unfortunately, the Tubby Custard has made the Teletubbies' tummies all full up, and they fall asleep, resting with their tummies all full up. The Baby Sun shrieks and giggles. While the Teletubbies are resting, the Magic Windmill begins to spin. Suddenly, the Teletubbies wake up, as they see the Magic Windmill spinning.


  • When the Teletubbies play outside, we see Dipsy flying his kite. This is the first episode where we see a Teletubby's kite.
  • After Dipsy makes his Tubby Custard, the noise that the Tubby Custard Machine usually makes starts to sound lower and slower.
