Gino the Genie comes out of the bottle. The Wiggles go and have a picnic and they meet Dr. Johnny Taitz while talking about allergies.

After playing chase, Jeff gets tired again. Wake Up Jeff! Jeff makes his 3 wishes. His wishes are around the world typed. First, they have to check the weather.

Trivia

  • Production began in 2011 when Sam was with the Wiggles instead of Greg. This is a reverse of the situation where Getting Strong! was started with Greg before Sam replaced him, although unlike that video, production didn't completely start over and footage in which Sam did not appear was still used.
  • Starting with this video (only the end), The Wiggles' large shadings on their shirts are now shined and they now have shadings in the front. Their pants also have two lines instead of one.
  • Rolling Down/Running Up The Sandhills were the only songs on this video that weren't re-recorded.
  • This DVD features bonus songs of Jack/Jill Be Nimble and Wags The Dog, He Likes To Tango in new music videos.
  • Larry Malone makes a cameo in Here Come Our Friends where Captain Feathersword arrives after getting off the boat.
  • Olive Oil Is My Secret Ingredient was filmed at Bankstown Sports Club.
  • The Wiggles, Captain Feathersword & Gino hum along to "Battle Hymn of the Republic" while Dr. Johnny Taitz give tips about allergies.
  • It is revealed that Anthony is allergic to peanut butter. In real life his son, Antonio, has a peanut allergy. However in Taking Off!, he is eating peanut butter with the new Wiggles.
  • The DVD was filmed from February 23rd to March 2nd because March 2nd was the day when the Wiggles got new skivvies on with V's on the front.
  • The parts with The Wiggles' shorts and sun hats were filmed on February 23rd-27th, March 1st while the rest of the parts with their normal clothing were filmed on February 28th-March 2nd.
  • In some scenes, The Wiggles are wearing the 2007-2012 skivvies with the 2012-present pants (two stripes per side instead of one).
  • The DVD was released a month after the Wiggles announced the new generation of Wiggles.
  • This is the second video to have the opening scene filmed in a Chroma Key background. The first was Wiggledance!.
  • According to the Special Thanks credit, "Look Before You Go" was filmed at Anthony's brother Paul's house.
  • The white accordion from 2002-2006 returns in this video shown in "Waltzing Matilda".
  • Due to some of this being filmed with Sam, Jeff has different hairstyles in different scenes. Something similar happens with Emma in Taking Off!
  • This is the last original Wiggles video to be filmed in Sydney, Australia.
  • The scene where The Wiggles and Gino fly to Ireland, it is similar to the flight scenes you would see in Indiana Jones movies where Indiana's plane is seen on a map flying to its destination.
  • The parts where Jeff surfs were actually filmed in 2007 because the same parts are shown in On The Road With The Wiggles.
  • The Wiggles have shorts to wear during the beach scenes.
  • Several references to Greg and Jeff's real lives are made. When Greg asks "He still does that?", he references leaving The Wiggles in 2006. When Jeff says "To get the blood pumping and the old pacemaker a-ticking!" he references his heart surgery in 2011.
  • After The Wiggles new generation took over, the lyrics for Here Come Our Friends were changed for Captain Feathersword's part.
  • This was the last non-concert video to feature Greg, Murray & Jeff.
  • In the US, this was the last video to feature Greg, Jeff & Murray since Celebration! was released in the US first.
  • Several songs reuse old songs for the music:
