"Wiggly TV" is a compilation video of episodes from TV Series 2 released in 2000 on DVD and 2001 on VHS. The VHS version contains two episodes, Playtime and Wiggly History, as well as an Electronic Storybook and Bloopers. The DVD version also contains the episode Family, plus DVD-ROM features.

In the United States and Canada, it was released as "Wiggly Play Time", with all three episodes on both the VHS and DVD versions, edited into one full-length video.

Wiggly Play Time version

The VHS version, released August 14, 2001, contains all three episodes and no extras. The episodes are played as though they were one complete video, with only one intro and credits sequence (still dated 1999). To transition between each episode they use the bee and flower from the intro. Despite this, the description on the cover still mentions that they are three episodes from The Wiggles' television series.

In Canada, a DVD was released in 2004, with only trailers and static menus. Later that same year, on November 2, 2004, the DVD was released in America with newly animated menus, and bonus features different to those on the Australian version, including extra episodes of their 3rd TV Series. It also contained a complete Song Jukebox with optional Sing Along subtitle track.

  1. Episode 1
  2. Episode 2
