The "Wiggly Safari" album was released on February 4, 2002 featuring 32 tracks.
- During "Koala La La", Greg is playing the Maton EM225C acoustic guitar although there is no guitar music.
- "Butterflies Flit" was originally sung by Greg on the Yummy Yummy album. This version has Dorothy singing the verse twice and making comments in between verses.
- The concert footage in this video was filmed at the Vodafone Arena during the December 2001 tour. Clips from Wiggly Party: Live in Concert can also be seen in the TV documentary The Wiggles Take on the World.
- At the beginning of this video, The Wiggles were lost in the Big Red Car, this was similar to The Wiggles Movie when The Wiggles were lost and found themselves on Brrrrrr Street.
- This is the third non-concert video to have footage from one of The Wiggles' concert tours, the first was Wake Up Jeff with the footage from the Big Red Car Show at the Lea Theatre and the second was the Wiggle Time! video remake with footage from The Wiggles Big Show at the Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Centre. However, those two videos had the concert footage come at the end as a sort of bonus, whereas the concert footage appeared during this video. The audio from this concert also is not used, instead its dubbed over with the album tracks.
- After the credits are over, there is a dedication to the memory of FDNY's Brian Cannizzaro, and everybody else who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Special thanks go to Engine 202, Ladder 101, Battalion 42. Posing with the firefighters are The Wiggles, Paul Paddick, and Steve Irwin wearing FDNY T-shirts.
- The back cover song list order for the American and UK DVD & the American VHS is not the same order in the video.
- This is the final video where Reem Hanwell performs Henry.
- This is the first collaboration video, with a co-producer (The Best Picture Show Company) and a group of guest stars appearing throughout (the Irwin family), followed by The Wiggles' Big Ballet Day!, co-produced with The Australian Ballet and featuring some of its dancers. Similarly, Yummy Yummy previously featured Paul Hester as a guest throughout.
- The 1997-2001 outfit is used during the prologues of Swim With Me and Kookaburra Choir where Anthony gets wet. (This 2001-2006 outfit is done so the outfit wouldn't get damaged by the water).
- During "The Crocodile Hunter", Murray is not wearing his Wiggles belt buckle. This is fixed later in the video.
- In the prologue of "Wobbly Camel", the Big Red Car wouldn't start. This part is similar to Toot Toot! because in that video the same thing happened.
- According to a bonus clip of The Wiggles' Big Birthday!, Steve Irwin's son Robert Irwin suggested that The Wiggles should make a sequel called "Wiggly Safari 2".
- The Big Red Car in this video is the same one that was used in The Wiggles Movie, but it lacks the windshield and now has The Wiggles Logo on the front bonnet.
- This is the first video where The Wiggles' skivvies have turtlenecks, and pants with trimming of the speciffic color, however, the 1997-era skivvies were still used for photo shoots before filming this video, and one was used for the intros of Swim With Me and Kookaburra Choir.
- The UK Main menu is a bit different from the Australian and American one. It has extra text saying "Coming Soon!" and The Wiggles Logo is pushed down a bit to make room for it.
- During the scene at the beginning where The Wiggles drive in the bush, the instrumental version of "We Like To Say Hello" can be heard.
- This video was the last time that The Wiggles we're credited for writing Cocky Want A Cracker since as of before Wiggly Safari was released on VHS and DVD in Australia, the song has been credited to only Steve Irwin and Paul Paddick.
- The cover is shown in an Instagram post by The Wiggles posting on May 9, 2018, being their take on the "Avengers: Infinity War is the most ambitious crossover event in history" meme.
- Although listed in the credits, The Wiggles' backing vocals are not heard in any of the songs.
- This video was filmed in 2 well-known parts of Queensland Australia, one, Australia Zoo in Beerwah, and the other, SeaWorld on the Gold Coast.
- "Butterflies Flit" makes it's video debut after Greg sang it on the Yummy Yummy album.
- This is the first video to have Jacqueline Field voice Dorothy the Dinosaur.
- Compared to the other Dorothy voices, Jacqueline's Dorothy voice is noticeably much deeper and her giggle is more fluttery than usual.
- The Hong Kong DVD release does not contain any menus or special features. But, it strangely has the ABC Video logo at the end.
- On the US/Canada DVD release, it does not show the HIT Entertainment logo at the end like on the VHS release.
- On October 17th 2020, the full video was uploaded on The Wiggles' YouTube channel as part of Classic Wiggles.
- The footage of Steve Irwin was later used in Duets for the new version of The Crocodile Hunter.
- This is the first video in which Anthony has gray hair.
- The VHS inside cover advertises the following videos:
- The American DVD was pressed on July 9, 2002, just a day after it released in Australia.
- The first time Captain Feathersword plays red Maton acoustic guitar. The next time was Apples & Bananas.
- During the song The Crocodile Hunter, when Steve Irwin said "Crikey it's a croc with razor sharp teeth!" his dialogue sounded different on the video version of Wiggly Safari than on the Wiggly Safari (album)
- During the song Old Man Emu, when Steve Irwin said "If you take a look, it'll prove to you I can run the pants off a kangaroo" and "You silly galah I'm better by far than a white cockatoo or a budgerigar They squeak and squawk and try to talk Why me and them's like cheese and chalk" his dialogues were slightly different on the video version of Wiggly Safari than on the Wiggly Safari (album)
