Description

Come on down to Wiggle Town! It's the only place on earth where there is a dancing Police Force, a dancing Mayor and where you can not only eat a pretzel, but 'Do the Pretzel'. Emma, Lachy, Simon and Anthony are giving you the keys to the town! You'll go Irish dancing, see some of our Aussie mates as you sing 'D-I-N-G-O', your feathers will be in a flap as Captain Feathersword does 'Captain's Barnyard Dance' and join our graduate of the Royal Academy of Dinosaur Dancing, Dorothy the Dinosaur, as she does her special ballet 'Dorothy Pas De Deux'. Join our special guest from the Torres Strait Islands, Christine Anu, and sing along with 'Taba Naba Style!'. Anyone who loves to sing and dance is a citizen of Wiggle Town, so come on down to Wiggle Town!

Trivia

  • The video was originally titled "Welcome to Wiggle Town" and was first submitted for classification with a cut that was two minutes shorter than the final version. It was resubmitted months later after the title was changed and the run time was increased (both times it was classified G).[1][2]
  • The video was released digitally during Leap Year Day on February 29, 2016.
  • Despite credited as the voice of Dorothy and Wags in this video, Paul Paddick does only Henry's voice in this video. Dorothy and Wags do not speak in this video.
  • This Wiggles video marks the first time in 19 years since The Wiggles Movie to have Officer Beaples speak.
  • "Springtime" doesn't appear in the North American DVD, likely due to its use of Australian Sign Language, which went unmentioned in the song's prologue. Despite this, it appears on the iTunes release in the US and Canada, and was not removed when aired on Universal Kids.
  • Songs from this video can be seen in the Wiggle Town! TV Series.
  • This was the last North American DVD to be slowed down, and thus low-pitched, as a way of converting PAL to NTSC, after Wiggle House and Rock & Roll Preschool (the Apples & Bananas and NCircle's Go Santa Go! DVDs were also slowed down, but pitch corrected). Because of the change in speed, the run time is actually longer than the Australian DVD despite an entire song being removed (Springtime).
  • This is the last video to feature Clare Field until We're All Fruit Salad!: The Wiggles' Greatest Hits.
  • This video marks the first appearance of the 2016-present designs of The Cartoon Wiggles.
  • "Taba Naba" was later used in Duets.
  • Christine Anu mentions the events of the recording of "Taba Naba" with the original wiggles in 1999 for It's a Wiggly Wiggly World!.
  • Dorothy wore the same pink tutu, later in Wiggly Christmas Show.

Goofs

  • During Irish Stew, green screen outlines are seen around Lachy in his solo shots.
  • 2 x Professor Simon Segments are listed on the Australian DVD Reprint Back Cover, although that DVD Extra is not on that DVD.
