Every episode presented is edited in multiple ways from their original versions.
Kaz the Cat segments are of course missing, as they had been replaced by Dorothy's Kindergarten segments years before for reruns and international airing. "Wiggly Trivia" questions asked in Wigglehouse segments before commercial breaks were removed, as there are no breaks on DVD. The songs Teddy Bear Hug, Numbers Rhumba, and Baby Baluga are also removed from their respective episodes, as they were covers of songs by Raffi, despite the fact that the former two songs had been made available on the Yummy Yummy + Wiggle Time DVD three years before, which would go on to be re-released multiple times.

The Wiggles - TV Series 1 (1998) DVD Trailer
Trailer for this DVD
This is the only complete TV Series collection to be made before Greg retired in 2006. TV Series 2 Collector's Edition and TV Series 3: Lights, Camera, Action! were released in 2007 and 2008, respectively.
This is the second DVD to include bonus Wiggly Animation clips, after Lights, Camera, Action!, another TV Series DVD.
D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. (My Favourite Dinosaur) and Uncle Noah's Ark appear both in episodes as live-action music videos, and as bonus Wiggly Animation clips.
Murray's dialogue (and lawnmower sounds) are muted on the Wiggly Animation for D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. (My Favourite Dinosaur), despite the characters' mouths moving to them. This is fixed in its appearance in Splish Splash Big Red Boat.
A trailer for this DVD set appears on the DVD for Da Kath & Kim Code, in the closing previews on it.
The photo gallery shows photos from 1991-1998.
" Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car" has been renamed to "Big Red Car" (not to be confused with the 1995 song).
