The Wiggles Movie (video release, 1998)

"Yummy Yummy" is a remake of the 1994 Video of the same Name, released on April 13, 1998. It is arguably one of The Wiggles' most popular Videos along with the remake of Wiggle Time, launching the popularity of Songs like Hot Potato, Fruit Salad and The Monkey Dance (which had first been released Years beforehand). Some songs were re-recorded for this Version, such as the previously mentioned Hot Potato and The Monkey Dance. Songs like Pufferbillies and Havenu Shalom Alechem were not in the original Version but added to this Video. No songs from the original Video were removed, except for Dorothy's Birthday Party which was part of the bonus segment at the end.


January 1998

Version Differences

  • In the 1994 Version, Murray picks up a Hot Potato and passes it to Jeff, then Anthony and then Greg whereas in this version, Paul the Cook gives each Wiggle a Hot Potato.
  • In the 1994 Version, D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. (My Favourite Dinosaur) plays in E but in this Version, it plays in D.
  • Anthony gets everyone to immediately wake up except Jeff in this Version, whereas in the 1994 version, Greg did the same thing.
  • The 1994 version of the Numbers Rhumba prologue has 3 children while this version has only 2.
  • The 1994 version had John Patrick Field play the Cook, but in this version, Paul Hester played the Cook.
  • The 1994 version did not have song cards while this version has song cards.


The Wiggles introduce themselves and Paul the Cook. Paul has some hot potatoes, cold spaghetti and mashed bananas. Greg introduces a song and warns the audience to look out for Captain Feathersword.

Anthony introduces the song about an old steam train and asks everyone to follow along.

Captain Feathersword does a dance that Henry showed him and The Wiggles do it too.

Greg comments on how there are many places you can walk or run to. Dorothy is walking and eating some roses, Captain Feathersword is running to his pirate ship, Henry is walking to the ocean to have a swim, Wags is running to get some bones and Jeff is sleepwalking!

Anthony is with four children playing with coloured dough and tells the good things about what to do with dough, like hammering.

After the song, everyone goes to sleep and immediately wakes up... except for Jeff! After Jeff is awoken, he bounces around the room. Anthony asks what he is doing and Jeff says he's doing a monkey dance!

The Wiggles and Captain Feathersword are making crunchy munchy honey cakes and mention the different ingredients.

The Wiggles are going to get ready for the song, but first they need to get into their shaking clothes. They go behind a curtain and come out dressed in Elvis-inspired clothing.

Each of the Wiggles say hello in a different language. In Hebrew, they say "Havenu shalom alechem."

  • Song 12: I Am A Dancer – Greg lead sings this one, while the other wiggles do ballet moves running across in the background.

Greg performs a magic trick involving The Box Of Mystery Trick.

The Wiggles and Paul cook up a healthy recipe, fruit salad, by using bananas, grapes, apples and melons with bowls, knives, forks and spoons.

  • Despite the songs from the remake version is listed, the 2003 Singapore VCD release of the video uses the original version of the video.
    • Because of this, the VCD abruptly ends before the promotion of The Wiggles merchandise and the contact information.
  • On the Australian VHS back cover, Havenu Shalom Alechem was misspelled as Havenu Shalom Alachem.
  • On the US small clamshell VHS and 2003 DVD back cover, Pufferbillies was misspelled as Pufferbellies.
  • On the US alternate VHS and 2003 DVD Cover, the song list states that Havenu Shalom Alechem comes before Wigglemix when it's actually the opposite.
  • When the songs from this video and Wiggle Time! remake were aired in The Wiggles' first TV Series, a few sounds were added.
  • The US and UK versions of the credits still show scenes of Teddy Bear Hug and Numbers Rhumba despite them not appearing in those versions. Because of this, nobody knew what songs those were at the time of those releases until those songs aired for TV Series 1 episodes such as Foodman and Murray’s Shirt on Playhouse Disney in the USA in 2002 and Nick Jr. in the UK in 2004.
  • On the Canadian VHS, the back cover lists "Greg's Magic Trick" as a song.
