Trivia

  • This video is related to The Dorothy the Dinosaur and Friends Video, where both videos feature highlights from Series 2, along with new framing material. The only difference is the Wiggles being present in this video unlike the latter.
  • The footage of The Wiggly Mascots from Toot Toot! (1999) is re-used for the opening of this video.
  • Murray is only seen in skits re-used from Series 2, while a stand-in fills in for him while on the dock fishing (he wears a hat and is only seen from behind at a distance) for unknown reasons. It's also the last time we see him with bangs until Santa's Rockin'!.
  • This is the first video to have the P22 Daddy O Hip font.
  • This video has yet to be uploaded on YouTube as part of Classic Wiggles.
  • It's the only Wiggles video to be focused on Captain Feathersword.
  • The opening dock sequence features the third version of Captain Feathersword's third design which also appeared in Toot Toot! and the plane segments in The Wiggles in Disneyland.
  • The video uses the early GMTV versions of the TV Series 2 clips. Three of the clips from TV Series 2 also have an Echo sound effect added to them.
  • The book that Greg is reading is the book that was used in Dorothy the Dinosaur Goes to Hospital.
  • This marks the first Wiggles video not to feature Dorothy the Dinosaur on the front cover, as what wasn't done on previous Wiggles videos.
  • This marks the final Wiggles video produced not yet released on DVD until the Big Red Car video, which wasn't released on DVD in Australia, it was released on DVD in North America as "Dance Party".
  • This is the first video to win an award at the VHS Awards.
