During the credits, each Wiggle tells the viewer their favourite part of making the CD & DVD:
For Anthony, it was working with his son, Antonio.
For Murray, it was playing his multiple guitars, including the Dobro.
For Jeff, it was playing his keyboards and learning new dance steps.
And for Sam, it was singing, and playing his trumpet. He then proceeds to play a short part of "Get Ready To Wiggle" on his trumpet.

- This video marked:
- Greg wrote the songs I Drive The Big Red Car, To Have A Tea Party, First In Line and Swinging On A Swing before he left due to an illness called Orthostatic Intolerance.
- I Drive The Big Red Car and To Have A Tea Party were filmed in early 2007 (around the same time as Getting Strong!). The evidence supporting this is that Dorothy's 7th costume was shown, Wags' 6th costume was used and The Wiggles' hairstyles (particularly Sam and Murray's) are the same as they were in said video.
- Some instrumental songs from Racing to the Rainbow are heard briefly in the song intros.
- In The Mooche, posters of King Mondo can be seen in the background.
- Songs from this video can be seen in Wiggle and Learn.
- In the song Follow The Leader, Jeff Fatt is one of Captain Feathersword's Pirate Crew
- The American DVD was pressed on May 19, 2008, just a month before its Australian release and two months before its American release.
