The Teletubbies And Their Fellow Friends Wiki

The Running Away Dance is the fourth of the dances that the Teletubbies do. It was first shown in the 1st UK Version of Numbers 1. The Teletubbies do this dance around some hills near the Home Dome.

All the Teletubbies meet at the hills. Po starts running back and forth and then all the Teletubbies run away in different directions and the back again, then they pretend to pant. Tinky Winky and Po run past Laa Laa and Dipsy, then Tinky Winky and Laa Laa bump tummies and so do Dipsy and Po. Then they pretend to pant again and run past each other and pant again. Then they run up to a hill and they all spin round and round together and the dance ends.

This is one of the few dances with an extended version. But in this dance the music key changes throughout the dance. It's very rare that the Teletubbies do this dance just once.

Appearances in the US Dubbed Version


  • In Balancing, and the PBS Versions of Numbers 3 (Version 1 of the Pledge Drive Version), Herding Sheep (Original PBS Version), and Running (Rerun Version), the camera cuts straight to the Windmill spinning for the TV Receiver Event after the Teletubbies are done spinning around at the end.
