Wiggle Bay is the seventeenth Wiggles video special. It was released on September 30, 2002.

Overview

When The Wiggles and their friends sailed into Wiggle Bay, they were looking forward to a picnic by the sea. They found a magic shell, a curious note and Magdalena the beautiful mermaid! They found they had a mystery to solve and had lots of fun Dancing In The Sand! They all swam like fish, spent time Watching The Waves and Rolling Down The Sandhills. They danced a Cachuca, made some rosy tea and had a barbie on the beach. Join The Wiggles when they solve the mystery and return the golden key to its rightful owner. It’s a lot of fun and there’s lots of music and dancing at Wiggle Bay!

Plot

Intro for Wiggle Bay

The Wiggles and their friends step off their rowboat and introduce themselves. They unload the boat in Wiggle time and relax for a bit. Captain Feathersword looks out at the bay and notices their boat has drifted off to sea because he forgot to tie up the boat. Now they are stuck in Wiggle Bay. Anthony suggests when things go wrong just sing a song.

The Wiggles go fishing, except for Jeff, who prefers to take a nap. Anthony casts his line into the water along with the whole rod. They see something glittering in the water.

The Wiggles net a shell with some writing on it, saying to pass it to someone you like. Wags the Dog suggests giving it to Dorothy, so they do just that.

The Wiggles meet Magdalena the Mermaid and Captain Feathersword has a dance with her, originated from Mexico, called the Cachuca.

Dorothy likes to look at the sandhills 'cause they like great to roll down.

The Wiggles find a bottle with a message but some of the writing has been smudged out from the water. They give the message to Dorothy, who somehow relates it to the shell she has.

There's some magical treasure nearby and so The Wiggles get Wags to help dig it out. After scouting a couple of random locations with the audience's help, they find that Wags has located a spot. They start digging and find random objects, but Wags continues digging and finds a key! They decide that Captain Feathersword should hang on to the key for safekeeping.

The Wiggles talk with Magdalena and she remarks it's the key to Davy Jones' Locker. Captain Feathersword leaves with Magdalena to return the key to King Neptune.

Anthony gets hungry.

Captain Feathersword and Magdalena return with good news. King Neptune has found the boat and they have it now. King Neptune calls in to say thanks for getting the key back.

  • Songs from this video can be seen in TV Series 3.
  • Long shots during the opening song (specifically whenever they're actually on water) show Wags and Dorothy in older costumes meaning they were shot at a different time from the medium and close-up shots (where they're pretending to row the boat while it's on land). This could possibly be due to fear of water exposure to the current costumes.
    • Additionally, Captain is seen in his wetsuit version of his costume in the long shots and his normal costume in the close-ups, likely for the same reason.
  • The UK DVD is a double feature with Splish Splash Big Red Boat.

  • The US cover has a noticeably different design on the surfboard.
