Trivia

  • The Wiggles Puppets get their first speaking role in Australia.
  • There is two versions of the video, different song titles, some same skits and some different. (That's why there are 2 plots)
  • This is the first video that The Wiggles do not appear in the story and song. So, The Wiggly Puppets and Mascots appear instead.
  • This video is related to Captain Feathersword the Friendly Pirate Video, where both videos feature highlights from Series 2, along with new framing material. The only difference is the Wiggles not being present in this video unlike the latter.
  • An alternate version of the video exists, with the banner song titles being replaced with rainbow song titles from TV Series 2 and with Go Captain Feathersword, Ahoy!Wake Up Jeff Medley Mix Up and Get Ready to Wiggle being removed.
  • The puppet version of Henry the Octopus from TV Series 1 returns in this video, with a slight modification (his mouth is now closed, and his eyes are a little different).
  • Two of the puppet songs, Wigglemix and Go Captain Feathersword, Ahoy!, previously appeared in the American and UK versions of Yummy Yummy (1998 video) to replace Teddy Bear Hug and Numbers Rhumba, due to Lyrick/HIT, Warner, NCircle Entertainment and Disney not having the rights to them.
  • It is the only Wiggles VHS cover where it doesn't have The Wiggles logo, but appears on the inlay cover instead.
  • This is one of the few Wiggles videos that doesn't have a DVD release.
  • On the video's cover, Wags has his 2nd Costume, but has his 4th costume in the video itself.
  • This is the first Wiggles video to end with the ABC Video logo.
  • Like the Dancing episode of TV Series 2, the part where Captain Feathersword fails to take The Wiggles photograph was cut out, both the parts with The Wiggles failed hat photograph, and Captain Feathersword's own teeth photograph was later put together in the Multicultural episode.
