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!

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. He opens it up and finds a bunch of bones. Four of them in fact: one for Wags, and the rest for the Wagettes. Captain is left with an empty treasure chest; it's much easily to carry!

Song 5: "John Bradleum" (from Toot Toot)

Murray and Jeff look at number shaped clouds. The third one is a rain cloud!

The Wiggles get in their 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!)
