Watch The Wiggles dress up and help children learn to count in a fun rhyming way as they sing This Old Man. Children are exposed to different languages throughout Wiggles songs, one such song in this episode is Frere Jacques. Dorothy the Dinosaur sings the lyrics in French then Sam sings them in English. Children are encouraged to join in when Captain Feathersword asks for their help in trying to work out what Anthony is dressed up as today by identifying different clothing items one at a time. Captain Feathersword and Anthony teach children about echoing by Anthony copying what Captain Feathersword had said. They then mirror each other to demonstrate how you can copy someone's movements. The Captain and a Wiggly Dancer help to act out one of the classic nursery rhymes Little Miss Muffet as Sam Wiggle narrates the story. It's time for singing and dancing, it's time to Wiggle and Learn!
