  • Master Tubby Bear is one of the passengers at the station going to the seaside along with Bert Monkey and Clockwork Mouse when there is a balloon on the line that Noddy and Martha Monkey were trying to follow, and in 2 minutes later he is seen at Big Ears' Toadstool House along with Mrs. Tubby Bear, Mr. Plod, Tessie Bear, Dinah Doll and Mr. Wobblyman for his surprise party just as Mr. Sparks arrives with his bicycle and saw Noddy in the sky.
