Thumper's Return is an episode of Teletubbies (2015 TV series). Thumper comes out of hibernation.
The episode begins in Teletubby Land, where spring has come. The New Talking Flowers begin to bloom. Dipsy and Tinky Winky wake up, notice the flowers outside of Home Dome's window, and say "Eh-oh" to the flowers. The flowers respond with a curse word in Korean. Dipsy and Tinky Winky just laugh. The flowers then say a long string of curses in Korean and 5 other languages. Once again, the Teletubby boys laugh and try repeating what the flowers said.
Meanwhile, Thumper finally comes out of hibernation (which is how he survived the Great Teletubby Land Massacre of 2015). He mumbles to himself about how mad he is that Tinky Winky respawned after he killed Tinky Winky, and wants to kill all the other Teletubbies as revenge. He notices Dipsy and Tinky Winky saying the new foreign curse words they learned from the flowers, and decides today is the day he's FINALLY going to kill the Teletubbies FOR GOOD...starting with Dipsy and Tinky Winky. Their reaction to Thumper returning is, strangely, nothing. They just keep on paying attention to the Talking Flowers, who are teaching them more curse words in more languages.
Thumper decides to invade Home Dome and kill Po and Laa-Laa because Dipsy and Tinky Winky seem to distracted. Noo-Noo is just chasing Po and Laa-Laa as usual. Thumper turns into his Teletubby form via the Tubby-tron 3000 and yells "HALT!". Thinking he said "Alt", Alt 2.0 enters the room, salutes, and then asks who the heck the brown Teletubby is. Po says "You don't want to know", then asks Thumper why he returned. Thumper simply pulls out a gun, aims at Po, but hits Noo-Noo instead. Po and Laa-Laa cheer since they're so sick of all of Noo-Noo's chasing them. Alt 2.0 simply stands there, confused, and then leaves to go waste time playing Cookie Clicker on the Tubby Phone. Po and Laa-Laa worship Thumper and welcome him back into the Teletubbies. Thumper declares that this is his chance. He distracts Po and Laa-Laa, telling them the Tiddlytubbies need their diapers changed. While Po and Laa-Laa fall for it, Thumper goes into the Weapons Room and arms himself. Po and Laa-Laa return to see Thumper armed with as many weapons as possible, causing Po to yell "RUN AWAY!" She and Laa-Laa do so, and notice Dipsy and Tinky-Winky laughing while cursing in 26 languages. Thumper decides to go back and kill them.
Thumper sneaks up to Dipsy, and slaps the back of his head. Dipsy looks behind him, and sees that it's a brown Teletubby. Dipsy quickly informs Tinky Winky that he might want to look behind himself, so he looks behind him too. Seeing that it's Thumper, the two Teletubbies run off. Thumper chases the Teletubby boys across the bank of the Teletubby Land Acid Lake. A boulder blocks their path, however, so they get on steel rowing boats to get to the other side of the bank, however, Thumper grabs a Cracker Launcher from Super Smash Bros Brawl and begins to shoot at the Teletubby duo. Dipsy and Tinky Winky row at an extremely fast speed, but Dipsy's rowing boat is shot by a firecracker and sinks, so Tinky Winky lets him get on his, but it mysteriously tips over. Both of the Teletubbies barely make it to the other side because Thumper's Cracker Launcher backfires at the last second. The two think they are safe, but Thumper uses a speedboat to swiftly get to the other side, Dipsy and Tinky Winky facepalm before running off to Po's Tubby Custard Palace.
Coincidentally, Po, Laa-Laa and Alt 2.0 went there to chat with one another about how to stop Thumper, believing that the restaurant was safe from Thumper, Tinky Winky and Dipsy barge in and tell them that Thumper is coming right their way. The Teletubbies quickly bar down the door, but a whole army of Teletubby Land Bunnies slowly begin knocking it down. The crew climb to the roof and call the Tubby Ship to beam them up. The Teletubbies escape and shoot Tubby Toast at the bunnies, slicing them apart. Thumper tries to shoot at them with a crossbow, but the Teletubbies use the Tubby-Tron 3000 laser to turn him back into a rabbit, Thumper is then shot with the Tubby Custard Gatling Gun until he drowns.
The Teletubbies then tell each other their encounters with Thumper. Tinky Winky mentions how he saw a mysterious green tentacle knocking his boat over at the end.
Critics have called this episode "the best episode of the 2015 Teletubbies show so far" solely because it contains Thumper. Parents agree, as they showed no concern when they began to hear their kids saying curse words in 26 languages.
- The Language Littles think this episode is a ripoff of their DVD because of the whole "teaching curse words in 26 languages" thing.
- This episode hints at the Teletubby Land Acid Kracken, which dosen't appear until The Teletubbies Live to Loot and Pillage, Maim and Terrorize.
