The Wiggles run a race. Each wiggle crosses the finish line in order and counts "1, 2, 3, 4", respectively. Anthony mentions that we can count on The Wiggles!

Song 1: "I Climb Ten Stairs" (from Toot Toot!)

This is the story of four, no, three eggs, no... (eggs keep hatching wiggle ducks). The last duck is Jeff. They all want to sing but sound all chaotic. Captain Feathersword duck comes and leads them. They all quack together in harmony.

Song 2: "Captain Feathersword" (from Wiggle Time!)

Murray counts three red socks on the clothesline. Greg counts three yellow socks. Jeff counts one purple sock. Anthony counts one blue sock. That doesn't seem right, but then Henry arrives and declares those are his eight socks. The Wiggles continue counting.

Song 3: "Big Red Car" (new video, from the album Big Red Car)

Greg is showing off his magic trick in front of Anthony. If Anthony picks the cup that covers the white chocolate, he wins. Greg mixes the cups like a shell game. Anthony picks a cup but it's a dark chocolate. Anthony eats the chocolate. Now there are two cups, which Greg mixes up. Anthony picks a milk chocolate and eats that one. Greg is frustrated as Anthony concludes the white chocolate is under the remaining cup and proceeds to eat that one too! Anthony then shares his sandwich with Greg, who then smiles.

Song 4: "D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. (My Favourite Dinosaur)" (from Yummy Yummy)

Captain Feathersword finds a treasure chest so heavy he has to push it. After guessing what is inside (gold, jewels and ice cream), he opens it up and finds a bunch of bones; four of them in fact. This gets the attention of Wags and The Wagettes. Captain decides to let them have the treasure and gives each bones to Wags and the Wagettes. He is left with an empty treasure chest, which is much easier to carry! He then proceeds to take it back to his ship.

Song 5: "John Bradlelum" (from Toot Toot!) (1999)

Murray and Jeff look at two number shaped clouds. The third one is a rain cloud! The two then quickly rush inside.

The Wiggles get in the Big Red Car and follow Captain Feathersword's boat past 10 Wiggle Trees. Captain follows his treasure map to an X under a palm tree, and unearths a book that shows how to count to ten.

Song 6: "Henry the Octopus" (from Wiggle Time!)
