    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Fashion Nitpicks
        Anthony wears a green polo shirt or a green long sleeved shirt for the bulk of the videos. In other words, he's not the Blue Wiggle yet.
        None of the Wiggles have logo shirts, logo belt buckles or coordinated pants yet. They just wear whatever styled black pants.
        Anthony's hair looks frizzy on this video as with TV Series One.
        On the song, "Dorothy's Birthday Party", Anthony Silvestrini wears a Thomas the Tank Engine shirt.

      • Instruments
        Murray plays a Fender Telecaster electric guitar.
        Jeff plays a Yamaha acoustic guitar on "Georgia's Song".

    • QUOTES (9)

      • (Anthony, Murray and two kids are sitting on a couch. Murray is showing the girl some pictures from a photo book.)
        Anthony: Murray's showing us some photos from his holiday. (looks at photo album and then turns to boy) What did you do on your holiday, Shaun?
        Shaun: I went to my friend's house and I built a billy cart.
        Anthony: You built a billy cart.
        Murray: And Sarah, what did you do on your holiday?
        Sarah: I went to the beach and I collected some shells.
        Murray: Some shells. I love collecting shells.
        Anthony: (to camera) Holidays are fun. What did you do on your holiday?

      • (The Wiggles all wear cow suits. Jeff shakes his head like a cow while Greg clanks his cowbell.)
        Jeff: Cows can be big. Cows can be brown. They can be black and white as well. (points to his horns) Some of them have horns on their heads. And some just wear a bell. (laughs)
        (Greg clanks his cowbell again.)

      • Greg: We're trying on different hats. When I go out in the sun, I put my sunhat on my head. (does just that)
        (Murray, with a fishing hat and rod.)
        Murray: I wear this hat while I'm fishing. Ooh! I think I got one! (pulls rod and catches a fish)
        (Jeff wears a cowboy hat while riding his horse)
        Jeff: Whoa! This is the hat I wear when I'm riding my horse. Giddy-up! (rides off)
        (Anthony, with bagpipes.)
        Anthony: I wear my feather bonnet when I play the bagpipes.
        (Anthony plays "Di Dicki Do Dum" on his bagpipes loudly. Greg, Jeff and Murray comes in while covering their ears.)
        Greg: (shouting) Here's a song about wearing a hat on your head!
        Jeff and Murray: What?!?
        Greg: (shouting) I said, here's a song about wearing a hat on your head!
        Anthony: (stops playing) Why are you shouting, Greg?
        (Greg says nothing but Anthony smiles.)

      • (Greg gets a velvet bag with a handle on top that looks like an offering bag from church.)
        Greg: Have a look at this, everybody. This is my bag of magic hankies. It's a very special bag because when you have a look inside, there's nothing there. (flips bag inside out and shakes bag) Hello, hello, hello? Anybody home? Nope. Nobody there. (flips bag back to normal) However, when I get out my magic wand, (gets out wand) and wave it over the top of the bag of magic hankies, (puts his wand away) and then, if we have a look inside, there'll be a magic (flips bag inside but sees nothing) hankie there. There's no magic hankie. Oh, hang on. I know why it didn't work. Heh. Of course. I forgot to say the magic word. How silly. Perhaps you could help me say the magic word. I'll need everybody's help right now. The magic word today is: Wiggle Waggle. Well that's two magic words, actually, isn't it? "Wiggle Waggle", but never mind.

      • (Greg's magic show continues)
        Greg: Take a look at this, everyone. It's my vase of magic flowers. Yes, a vase full of magic flowers. (shows top and bottom of vase and looks through it like a scope, but you can see through it.) Uh, well I know that it doesn't look like there's any flowers in now, but if we do a little bit of magic, we can get a vase full of beautiful flowers. So what I'll do is I'll use this big magic hankie to cover up the vase just like that and now there is where we need to do a little bit of magic. If you wouldn't mind helping me out one last time, to have those magic fingers through the air, and to help me say, "Wiggle, Waggle," if you don't mind. Here we go. One, two, three. Wiggle, Waggle! (pulls hankie off, revealing) A vase full of wonderful magic flowers!
        Anthony: (arrives) Wow, Magic Greg. (to camera) Did you help Magic Greg do that magic? Well, give yourself a magic clap!
        (Anthony claps. He and Greg disappear.)

      • Greg: So, when I count to three, let's say "Wake up Jeff."
        Greg, Murray and Anthony: One, two, three. Wake up, Jeff!
        (The Big Red Car's horn toots. Jeff wakes up and gets out of the Big Red Car and the other Wiggles laugh)
        Murray: Oh, Jeff, are you awake now?
        Jeff: I'm awake now, Murray.
        Murray: Well, don't fall asleep again, Jeff, because we need you, for the next song. (does Wiggly fingers with Wiggles) Zingle, zangle!
        Jeff: I won't fall asleep again. I won't.
        Greg: Well, that's good, Jeffrey. Don't fall asleep, please, because you know what? We need you...
        Anthony: (looking at Jeff off-screen) Oh, no!
        Greg and Murray: Oh, what?!?
        Anthony: Oh, no!
        Greg and Murray: Oh, what?!?
        Anthony: Oh, no!
        Greg and Murray: Oh, what?!?
        Anthony: He's asleep!
        Greg and Murray: Oh, no!
        Greg: He has fallen asleep again. Oh, well look. Let's try the trick one more time. When I count to three, let's all say, "Wake Up Jeff." And I hope it works this time. Are you ready? One, two, three.
        Greg, Murray and Anthony: Wake up, Jeff!
        (Jeff wakes up again with a blubber.)
        Anthony: Hey, Jeff. Are you awake now?
        Jeff: I am awake now, Anthony.
        Anthony: That's great, Jeff. (to audience) Thanks for waking Jeff up.

      • Anthony: (about Di Dicki Do Dum) Here's some music you can dance to. You can dance anyway you like. You might like to sing along with us as well. Now the words are...
        Di Dicki Do Dum Di Dum Do
        Di Dicki Do Dum Dicki Dicki Di Dum
        (speeding up)
        Di Dicki Do Dum Di Dum Do
        Di Dicki Do Dum Di Dum Do!
        Greg, Jeff and Murray: Huh?!?
        (Anthony gives thumbs up to the camera instead)

        First Do in each verse is pronounced as do.
        Second Do in each verse is pronounced like dough.
        Di is pronounced like Princess Di.

      • Jeff: Hey, Murray. Where are you going with those bones?
        Murray: (while holding plate of dog food) This food's for Wags the Dog. He kept me awake all last night. He was barking because he was hungry.
        Anthony: Food? Did you say food, Murray? I'm really hungry.
        Greg: Oh, Anthony, you're always hungry.
        Murray: Anthony, this food's for Wags the Dog, not Anthony the Wiggle.
        (Anthony squats and puts his hands up in a begging position. He barks like a dog. Greg, Jeff and Murray laugh.)

      • Murray: Rose, can you close your eyes and smell this (holding something) and tell me what it smells like?
        Rose: (smelling something while closing her eyes) All sorts of flowers. (opening her eyes)
        Murray: All sorts of flowers. (showing a flower) Yes, it does. It's a lovely flower, isn't it? Now, Michael, I've got one for you. (giving something else to Michael) Can you close your eyes and can you crush this up in your hand and tell me what it feels like?
        Michael: (crushing something while closing his eyes) Chips.
        Murray: Chips. Have a look of what it is. (Michael does so.) Oh, it's a crushed up leaf. It does fill a bit like chips. Now let's use our eyes to watch and our ears to listen.
