'The Wiggles Taking Off!'

  • Shot on Location in Sydney, Australia, Hamilton, Ottawa & Toronto, Canda, Brighton, Guildford, London, Oxford & York, England.


  • This video marks the first appearance of the new generation.
  • This is the first Wiggles video to not feature Murray or Jeff.
  • The whole video was filmed in England, Australia and Canada.
  • Despite Greg, Jeff and Murray no longer being the Wiggles, they make cameos in this video as different human characters. Jeff makes a cameo in "Do the Propeller" and "Little Bunny Foo-Foo" as himself, "Emma (With the Bow in Her Hair)" as a king and "Who's Got Da Bones?" as the waiter. Greg also makes a cameo as the passenger in "Emma (With the Bow in Her Hair)" and Murray cameos in "The Shimmie Shake" along with Greg and Jeff.
  • Jeff was also seen in a promo picture of "Little Bunny Foo-Foo".
  • At the end of "Do the Propeller", Lachy's flag comes flying off his stick and off the back of the bus. He looks at it and laughs.
  • The scene where Anthony can't do the propeller until Captain Feathersword helps him in "Do the Propeller" was orignially used in "Celebration!".
  • "Peanut Butter" was the first song filmed on May 17th 2012 after the "A Message to The Wiggles' Fans" retirement announcement video was uploaded on YouTube because the Wiggles don't have any shoes to wear, not even Emma.
  • Little Bunny Foo-Foo was supposed to be filmed outside, but they decided to film it at a concert.
  • The Christmas Celebration! Tour set is seen where the Wiggles are in the Big Red Car introducing themselves. This was filmed on December 23rd at the Sydney Entertainment Centre after the original Wiggles' final tour ended.
  • Simon plays the Red Starry Keyboard in "Beep Beep, Buckle Up".
  • In "The Shimmie Shake", Greg, Jeff and Murray were dressed as buckets of popcorn.
  • In "Emma (With the Bow In Her Hair)" when the Male Wiggles sing "One day we were walking on a windy day", a boat is in the background and people in the boat are waving at The Wiggles.
  • Emma's hairstyle changes throughout the video.
  • According to the end credits, Mimi's full name is Marie-Michelle Bourgeau.
  • In Get Ready to Wiggle the background singing is the same as the original. And for the first time, we have two lead singers for the verses and bridge. (Although Emma can be heard when more than one Wiggle is singing)
  • In "Alouette (Mimi's Dance)", the original music for "Little Bunny Foo-Foo" is played while Mimi is dancing.
  • Some of the songs that weren't used in this video such as "I Stamp" and "Roll the Acrobats" were later released on two later videos: Pumpkin Face and Wiggle House. Others such as an early draft of "Little Bunny Foo-Foo" with Lachy as the bunny himself were abandoned because the Wiggles in their today's generation did want them to confuse their fans.
  • This video aired on Treehouse TV in December 2017.


  • In "Peanut Butter" Anthony eats it on toast but in Surfer Jeff says he is allergic to peanut butter and then performs Ooey, Ooey, Ooey Allergies. Anthony Field (his actor) isn't actually allergic to peanut butter in reality, it was just a made up trait just for Surfer Jeff that they seem to have forgotten.
  • In "Propeller" Lachy's flag is gone out of no where.
  • In the DVD's photo gallery, a picture from Roll the Acrobats is seen, but that song wasn't released until 2014, the year after this DVD was released. A picture from the original unused version of Little Bunny Foo-Foo is also seen.
  • On the song credits, Murray Cook and Jeff Fatt's names are listed in Rock-a-Bye Your Bear whereas Anthony Field's name is listed in Get Ready To Wiggle.
