Featuring the colorful, cherubic denizens of Teletubbyland -- Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa, and Po -- this short feature offers educational lessons directed toward young pre-school children. Teletubbyland is a place beyond the hills where anything can happen, and when the wind blows, a magical windmill presents pictures from far-off places, allowing the Teletubbies to play with the children of the real world. On this video the Teletubbies, who speak like babies and heavily employ repetition of their words, use ordinary events like taking a nap, eating toast, playing in the rain, and discovering a puddle to examine and communicate the various needs of children within their homes, schools, and society. The Teletubbies' adventures are told in fantastical terms, stimulating a child's senses through colorful costumes, a baby's face in the sun, the playfulness of youth, and the computer-generated animal parade.
