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.

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.

Trivia

  • The instrumental version of the song Anthony's Workshop from the TV Series 3 is played when the Wiggly Group are spending time on Wiggle Bay. Community Service Announcement! and Wiggly Sports Theme are also played.
  • When Captain Feathersword and Magdalena go to give the golden key to King Neptune, you can hear Henry the Octopus' voice and Dorothy says "Good Luck Henry", even though he isn't with them.
  • This video was the first to be shot and made in 16:9 widescreen, most versions are cropped to 4:3 full screen.
  • The Wiggles are wearing Hawaiian Necklaces throughout the entire video, this makes this the first video where The Wiggles looked different during the video while they looked the same once or twice, the others included Space Dancing and Cold Spaghetti Western, however, in Space Dancing and this video, they were in their normal outfits during the video, whereas in Cold Spaghetti Western, they wore cowboy outfits during the video, and only wore their regular outfits once. also in Space Dancing, they were CGI animated while the begining and end remained in live-action.
  • The end credits style is later used in Whoo Hoo! Wiggly Gremlins!.
  • This is the first video to be directed by Nicholas Bufalo.
  • Jeff's shirt becomes untucked during Running Up The Sandhills but is fixed afterwards. This is the third time, the first one was Yummy Yummy and the second one was Toot Toot!.
  • Songs from this video can be seen in TV Series 3.
  • Far-away shots of the opening song (specifically whenever they're actually on the water) show Wags in his costume from TV Series 2 and Dorothy in her costume from the two music videos Dorothy the Dinosaur and Uncle Noah's Ark meaning they were shot at a different time from the 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 far-away shots, and his normal costume in the close-ups, likely for the same reason.
  • The UK has a double feature DVD of this video with Splish Splash Big Red Boat.
  • The video was released the same day TV Series 3 premiered.
  • The US cover has a noticeably different design on the surfboard.
  • In 2006, the US DVD was repackaged, replacing the Daddy-O Hip font on the cover with The Wiggles' current custom-made "Wiglet" font. This was likely done for the release of A Wiggle-Tastic Collection!
  • This video was aired on ABC TV around Australia Day in 2004. [3]
  • This is the last Wiggles VHS cover to have the old ABC Video logo.
  • The blue Maton electric Guitar didn't feature in this video although it was seen in the cover.
  • This is the first US DVD that comes with an insert.
  • This video was released after Greg Page's mother in law named Jane Hill died.
  • The Wiggles did say goodbye before Captain Feathersword said "Hey! Kick it to me!".
  • The screener VHS has no previews at the beginning and no Wiggles toys promo at the end whatsoever.
  • The American trailer for this video was The Wiggles' first American trailer since the 2002 trailer of Wiggly Play Time to be narrated by Dean Barnett, however, he only mentioned the members of the group instead of the name of the group.
  • This is the first video with a story plot to have the songs be put in a TV Series which was TV Series 3.
  • In 2006, some of the DVD copies come with a bonus DVD: Lights, Camera, Action, Wiggles!.
  • Anthony later revealed in his book that he was in pain during the filming of some of the beachside scenes, as the salt water got into his mouth and irritated his gums.
