Song #1: "Hot Potato" (from Yummy Yummy)

Captain Feathersword and Wags the Dog play catch in an old fashioned film. Each time, Wags catches the ball in his mouth, tosses the ball to Captain, and the Captain gets dog slobber all over his hands. Murray comes with an apple and offers it to Captain Feathersword, but Captain has to go wash his hands first.

The Wiggles talk about their favourite foods. Greg's favourite is a carrot, Murray's favourite is a banana and Jeff's favourite is a broccoli. As for Anthony, he likes all kinds of food!

Song #2: "Big Red Car" (new video, from the album Big Red Car)

The Wiggles are at the table with a pile of sandwiches in the middle. Jeff gets the first sandwich but wants to put it back. The other Wiggles tell him that's a no-no and that if he touches it, even if he washed his hands, he should eat it and not put it back. Jeff wanted a bigger sandwich which is the one at the bottom. There’s only one way to get to that sandwich, so each of the Wiggles grabs a sandwich and starts eating. Captain Feathersword shows up and gets the last sandwich!

Song #3: "Go Captain Feathersword, Ahoy!" (from Toot Toot!)

Dorothy the Dinosaur sneezes, and a cloud floats around Wiggle Town. The Wiggles arrive and tell her to cover her nose. They are also Wiggle Doctors and for a cure, they offer a song.

Song #4: "Fruit Salad" (from Yummy Yummy)

Captain Feathersword teaches Wags how to fetch.

The Wiggles are cleaning their instruments. Murray asks how dirty is dirt? Greg explains that some dirt is clean, like the soil, and other dirt is germy or dirty, like the kitchen floor. Everyone should wash their hands. Jeff asks how small are germs, and the Wiggles shrink to germ size to see what it's like.

Song #5: "Rock-A-Bye Your Bear" (from The Wiggly Big Show)

Jeff is about to touch his hair when his puppet reflection in the mirror tells him to wash your hands first!

Magic Greg pulls out of his hat a TV set in front of the group.

Song #6: "Walk" (from Yummy Yummy)

The Wiggles recap some hygiene tips and say good-bye.


  • The songs Hot Potato and Fruit Salad previously appeared together in the episode Wiggle Food.
  • The end of this episode has The Wiggles pose and Wiggle Fingers which was later used in cartoon form for the logo on the Tempo Drums drum-kit from 2001-2006.
  • During the magic hat transition, a brief image of Greg's white chocolate trick can be spotted before it quickly cuts to Greg doing a Wiggly TV trick. Possibly indicating that the white chocolate trick is on the GMTV version instead of the latter, but it has yet to be confirmed.
