    Because the Teletubbies are sad that they had to say goodbye and end their show during tubby bye-bye but they come back as when the baby sun rises in the sky in the opening sequence of the following episode of Teletubbies.

    A Voice Trumpet rises and announces "Time for Tubby Bye-Bye!" 3 times. The Teletubbies (who are standing behind some hills) sadly start to groan and say "No", because they don't want to say goodbye. After the Baby Sun giggles, the Teletubbies theme plays on a piano and glockenspiel in C major, and the narrator says "Bye-Bye" to each Teletubby in order. Then the Teletubbies (one by one) duck behind the hills. With the Teletubbies "gone", the show (at first sight), seems to be over, until the Teletubbies silently giggle.

    The Teletubbies try to get to having the show go on again and avoid having to say goodbye, despite hearing that it's time say goodbye from the voice trumpet and the narrator who have announced that it's time. This is done by (unsuccessfully) outsmarting the "Tubby Bye Bye" sequence.

    So therefore, trying to outsmart the "Tubby Bye Bye" sequence, a random Teletubby pops out saying "Boo!". It's then followed by the others who all say "Boo!" as well. The Teletubbies (who still do not like saying goodbye) then giggle again. When the Teletubbies giggle, the show (at second sight), then seems to go on again with the Teletubbies thinking they do not have to "say goodbye" just so they can keep playing and continue the episode.

    They happily giggle because they think that "Tubby Bye-Bye" is a game. But before any more steps from the Teletubbies are taken (like finding a way to avoid and/or cancel "Tubby Bye-Bye"), the narrator stops them in vain and just in time and says a big, long "No" in response, which the Teletubbies respond back by mimicking his "No" and giggle again. The narrator saying "No" is really meant to remind the Teletubbies that "Tubby Bye Bye" is not a game, and it's really time to say goodbye.

    Then, after the Baby Sun giggles again, the narrator (who hopes the Teletubbies are going to listen and obey this time) decides to try again, and says "Bye-Bye" to each Teletubby in order again. When he says "Bye-bye" to the Teletubbies for the second time, the Teletubbies Theme plays again (this time with more instruments and in E Major). This is the same as the first time, but the Teletubbies are serious this time. Therefore, the Teletubbies make a good choice, by staying gone.

    The Baby Sun sets in the sky. The female voiceover says this goodbye rhyme "The sun is setting in the sky. Teletubbies say goodbye (bye-bye in reboot)". The Teletubbies, disappointed but obedient, bid farewell to the viewers. One by one, the Teletubbies, starting with the boo shouter, walk up to the top of the Tubbytronic Superdome and say “Bye-Bye” before jumping into the hole.

    As the credits roll from the right to the left, one Teletubby, the one that shouted “Boo!” earlier, says goodbye for a final time by popping out of the hole, then ducking back down into the house. And as the show ends, they go back to the Tubbytronic Superdome while the Sun sets. The setting Baby Sun disappears behind the hills and refecting in the sky with red sunset light with the blue sky gets darker (before becoming night time) and the episode ends before the blue sky gets completely dark.
