Trivia

  • I'm a Cow is credited as "Jeff's only solo song", but he actually had two others, Would You Giggle and Once I Saw A Little Bird.
  • The only song that had never been on any album before is Greg's new version of Getting Strong!. Additionally, the Spanish version of Move Your Arms Like Henry and the Mandarin version of I Climb Ten Stairs had never been released on an Australian album before, after only in the Americas and Asia respectively.
  • The video clips of Captain Feathersword, Henry The Octopus, and Hot Potato are said to be from "Deleted videos" instead of Wiggle Time and Yummy Yummy.
  • Jacques the Shark returns on this album.
  • The booklet shows photos of The Wiggles over their first 21 years.
  • The Wiggles' signatures and the text on the front cover and spine are in a shiny silver colour on the Australian/New Zealand version. This is changed to a light green on the North American version. The text is white on the disc art in all versions.
  • The inside cover is black and white on the Australian release, but presented in full color on the North American release.
