Plot

Opening - The opening is a slow-motion clip from "D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. (My Favourite Dinosaur)" where The Wiggles are dancing while Dorothy is walking across with her mower by pulling in the Yummy Yummy title out. While the intro plays, the intro to the song "Get Ready To Wiggle" plays along with Anthony Field saying "Everybody listen up! Let's get ready to wiggle!".

The Wiggles introduce themselves and John the Cook. Murray asks what John has and he replies that he has some cold spaghetti. Anthony picks up some wiggly spaghetti with a spoon, shaking it. John also has mashed bananas; Greg picks up a bowl of bananas and mashes some with a fork. John also has hot potatoes. Murray picks up one potato but it's hot! He juggles it, passing it to Jeff, who passes it to Anthony, who passes it to Greg. Greg puts the potato back on the dish and says it's time to sing a song about hot potatoes, cold spaghetti and mashed bananas. He says to watch out for Captain Feathersword in case he comes by and takes the food.

Greg remarks that Captain Feathersword sure was tricky, since he tries to take the food. Now we're going to do a song about shaking. First, let's get into our shaking clothes. 1, 2, 3. Greg snaps his fingers and The Wiggles are now wearing colourful sports jackets.

In the end, they have to get back in there Wiggle clothes. They count to 3 and Greg snaps his finger and they all got back into there Wiggle clothes.

The Wiggles are with kids and Henry the Octopus. Greg tells everyone that Henry the Octopus is here and he tells everyone again to say hi to Henry. They greet Henry and he says "Hi, everybody" back. Murray asks what Henry is holding. Henry says that he is a teddy bear hugging his favourite teddy bear and he loves hugging his teddy bear. Murray suggests that let's all sing a song about teddy bears.

Anthony talks about Dorothy the Dinosaur while Jeff is tricking him to be wearing a Dorothy tail and hat.

Magic Greg does a magic trick from the box of mystery. For the music, Jeff plays the keyboard, Anthony plays a Fender bass guitar and Murray plays an acoustic guitar.

Dorothy is dancing with Vanessa the dancer and she had her pink shoes on to do a song about doing a ballet dance.

The Wiggles and John the Cook are making crunchy munchy honey cakes. Captain Feathersword was helping as well.

Murray is playing a game with kids to show what number Murray is holding up.

Anthony is at the workshop room with three kids and they are making clay to mush and hammer.

After the song, Jeff dreamed that he was a monkey. And The Wiggles woke him up and then he started to act like a monkey.

Captain Feathersword was trying to dance like Henry when Murray and Greg tells him what's going on? But he told them that he forgot how to do it. So they asked Henry if he can teach Captain Feathersword to dance with The Wiggles.

And after when he danced, he took a bow and his pirate hat fell off and when he picked it up, his feathersword fell. After Greg thought of an idea, to put the hat back on his head by jumping into the air and it worked.

Greg tells everyone that there are different types of ways to move while the other Wiggles do the actions.

The Wiggles and the others watch a videotape on TV all about Dorothy's birthday party.

Dorothy's Birthday Party

The Wiggles are gathered at a table. Greg, Murray and Anthony introduce themselves. Oh no, Jeff's fallen asleep. 1, 2, 3, Wake Up Jeff! Jeff wakes up. Anthony says it's a special day today; it's Dorothy the Dinosaur's birthday. She's turning five so let's have five claps for Dorothy. They all clap five times. Greg says it's a surprise party so be very careful not to tell her. We've got presents here. Anthony says "Oh no!" and states he forgot to get Dorothy a present. He will get a hat and decorate it and he runs off.

Greg says that we've got the presents, and our friend Lucy FixIt is helping us decorate. They greet Lucy, who says, "Hi everyone." So now the only thing they haven't thought about was the birthday cake. Jeff will make a cake, and he heads off. Murray has the invitations, and hands ones to Greg and Lucy. He says there's one for Captain Feathersword, one for Jeff and one for Anthony.

Jeff arrives with the cake but Greg says Dorothy is coming, so hide the cake and the presents. Greg reminds everyone to not tell Dorothy about the surprise.

Dorothy arrives. She asks if they know what special day it is today? Jeff answers it's her birthday and everyone tells her Happy Birthday Dorothy. Dorothy thanks everyone, but then asks if they're going to give her a birthday party? Greg replies oh, no, no, they aren't while the others make shushing gestures. Dorothy droops a little and says how sad. She's going to go to the garden and fall on the roses there. Greg comforts her. Dorothy asks for a handkerchief. Greg reaches in his pocket and pulls out a white handkerchief but as Dorothy takes it, the handkerchief is actually a string of handkerchiefs leading to a pair of underwear? Oops, Greg takes back the handkerchiefs and quickly leaves.

Dorothy leaves. Greg comes back, excited that they kept the secret. They notice someone coming; it's Captain Feathersword. Murray gives Captain an invitation. Lucy shows Captain the decorations, the presents and the cake. Greg tells Captain not to eat any since it's for Dorothy.

As Lucy, Jeff and Greg gather at the presents to look at the birthday card, Murray asks the audience if they can tell him if Captain Feathersword tries to eat the birthday cake. What? He's eating the birthday cake. They look over at the cake, but Captain has hidden behind it. Lucy says he isn't eating it and they continue. Captain stands up with icing on his face and continues eating. Greg asks, "Are you sure?" They have one more look and this time they catch Captain in the act. Murray asks if he's eating Dorothy's birthday cake. Captain denies it but Greg points out the icing on his face. Captain says he won't eat anymore.

Greg and the others will continue with the birthday card; he tells Captain see you at the party, but Captain goes back to the cake and then picks it up and takes the whole thing away. He's doing what? Oh no, the cake is gone. Did Captain take it? Oh, he did. Jeff offers to make another one but it's too late; what to do? Lucy has an idea: Captain likes parties and music, so if we start the party, he'll hear the music and bring the cake back. They call Dorothy inside.

Dorothy arrives and they say Surprise, it's your birthday party!

They sing Dorothy's Birthday Party.

Captain Feathersword arrives during the song wearing a big hat on his head.

Captain remarks what a great party. Greg asks where the cake is. Captain says he doesn't know. Greg and everyone else says "Oh yes, you do." Captain replies, "Oh no, I don't." They reply, "Oh yes, you do." Captain replies quickly, Oh no, I don't." Lucy says that the cake is underneath the Captain's hat. Captain takes off his hat and indeed the cake is there. He places it on the table. Captain says he needs to get back to his ship to mop the deck, hoist the mainsail and all that pirate stuff. He wishes Dorothy happy birthday and says goodbye. It's time for them to open the presents. Jeff got Dorothy a picture book. Murray gives Dorothy a necklace. Anthony arrives with a food plate that he decorated. Dorothy thanks everyone and Greg thanks everyone after that. Everyone waves goodbye.

The Wiggles and the others are falling asleep and Jeff tries to wake them up, Jeff said, "They always do this". But it doesn't matter. But it is always Jeff that falls asleep, isn't that right?


In the end credits,"Fruit Salad" plays as the closing music.
