- Some exterior shots of Wigglehouse and the S.S Feathersword were filmed at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast in Australia.
- Following two remakes (Here Comes The Big Red Car and It's Time to Wake Up Jeff!) and a compilation of TV series footage (Splish Splash Big Red Boat), this was the only wholly original studio video of 2006.
- This is also the only video of 2006 not to have any content that was filmed in 2005.
- This is the first Wiggles video to be filmed in HD. At one time, it could be bought in HD on iTunes in America, but it is no longer available for purchase (iTunes Australia did not offer the HD version).
- The song Run, Run, Run Away (A Storm Is On It's Way) doesn't appear on the album.
- Wags the Dog He Likes to Tango was played briefly in one scene.
- At 90 minutes, this is one of the Wiggles' longest videos. As such, many fans refer to this as a spiritual successor to The Wiggles Movie.
- Despite Elefterios Kourtis receiving a credit in the end credits, he is not seen in the video.
- This video marks the final appearance of Greg until Surfer Jeff, as he left because of his Orthostatic Intolerance.
- This marks the last video to have Sam Moran as a Wiggly Dancer, since he took over for Greg as the Yellow Wiggle.
- This marks the final video of Jeff Fatt voicing Henry the Octopus until It's Always Christmas With You! as Paul Paddick took over.
- Fans consider this video a direct to video The Wiggles Show! (TV Series 4 & 5) special or finale.
- In America, this was also the last video to be distributed by HIT Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. However, HIT Entertainment continued to release Wiggles videos in the UK until 2013.
- Two members of The Latin American Wiggles appear in this video, with Zoe Velez as the voice of Dorothy the Dinosaur, and Katty Villafuerte as an audience member in Stamp Your Feet (To the Heavy Beat).
- Murray's alter-ego, Muzza, makes his first appearance.
- This is one of the Wiggles videos in particular where the background music was instrumental versions of many Wiggles classic songs, The Captain's Wavy Walk in one scene, I Love It When It Rains in two scenes, Hats in one scene, Dressing Up in one scene, and many more.
- This was the last video until Surfer Jeff to have the catchphrase "Oh No! Oh What!" likewise, it is the first time The Wiggles did the catchphrase in different variations, in this video, finger blubbering was the first variation of the catchphrase.
- In this video, all The Wiggles' body movements had cartoon sound effects (mostly by Hanna-Barbera).
- The credits for Shakin' Like a Leafy Tree are missing Greg Page's name, and Dominic Lindsay is credited for Stamp Your Feet (To the Heavy Beat).
