Wigglehouse - The Wiggles get ready for a picnic. Anthony has gathered the food but Greg tells him he only has enough for himself but not enough for everyone else. So Anthony goes to pack some more. Jeff brings just one pillow for himself, but he didn't get enough for the others. Murray, the King of Guitars, will bring his guitar, but Greg suggests he'd bring some sporting equipment. Now it's time to go. Anthony leads Greg to the kitchen where he has enough food for everyone. Jeff leads Greg to the lounge room and hands Greg a pile of pillows.

Now they're all ready, so Little Murray leads them to the ferry. Captain picks them up and tells them the ferry left already, so they'd have to go tomorrow then.
