The Wiggles are having a party with their friends to celebrate Miss Fez, their friend, for being hired to work at the school. Anthony wants to have some of the food for the party. The other Wiggles warn Anthony to not eat all of the food. Anthony can't help himself and accidentally eats all the food. He covers the table hoping the others won't notice.

Wiggly Trivia

  • Why has Anthony got a sore tummy?
  • What will the guests think?
  • Will there be enough food for everybody else?

Later, The Wiggles' friends come over and are interested in having some of the food. Anthony tries to stall them by making them play a game. Anthony still continues to try and stall everyone from going to the food table. Eventually everyone agrees that it's time for the food. Anthony tries to stall them again but everyone starts to chant "FOOD! FOOD! FOOD!" Causing Anthony to back up and try to stop everyone to see that the food's gone. But Greg lifts the sheet covering the table to find that the food was gone. Anthony says that the flies were bad but Murray says that it was no flies and it was him. Then Anthony asks "Apple, anybody?", then everyone else says in response "Oh Anthony!"
