  • It's the same old skits and tricks but somehow with the new season it's gotten more interesting.

    So many things to pick at this episode.



    It’s great to see Greg doing magic tricks again, and not just fake Wiggle Time or camera trick things, but an actual classic magic trick. Anthony’s line was oh so predictable but a nice touch to the segment.



    Mandarin Wiggles! Sing songs in Mandarin, and it actually does match the lyrics. The captioners gave up but it would have been cool to have the pin yin for the song - they probably do in Taiwan. I don’t know how it will be received in the US, but it’s a bold move to show on Disney.



    Anthony’s nodding dance was funny – I hope he’s all right after all that headbanging.



    The little Wiggles acting has gotten better; guess more practice helps out. Still not comparable to teen child actors but at least it’s not as annoying.



    Loved the Wiggly Medley. All they need now is some Wiggledancing in Concert footage and it’d be great.moreless

      Jeff: Guys, you look tired.
      Greg: That's right. I stayed up reading a book. (nods his head down)
      Anthony: And I stayed up reading my favorite food recipes. (nods his head down)
      Murray: And I stayed up watching the cricket. (nods his head down)
      Jeff: Guys, you don't have the energy to start the day. Let's wake them up. Wake up, Murray!
      Murray: (nods his head back up) Huh?!?
      Jeff: Wake up, Anthony!
      Anthony: (nods his head back up) Huh?!?
      Jeff: Wake up, Greg!
      Greg: (nods his head back up) Huh?!?
      Jeff: Huh?!?
      Wiggles: Oops!

    • Anthony: Ooh! Well Greg, please, can you show us one of these tricks?
      Greg: Oh, of course, Anthony. (picking up glass). Today, I'm gonna make this glass of milk disappear...
      (Greg and Anthony look around in different directions as the word "disappear" echoes in the room.)
      Greg and Anthony: (both giving thumbs up) Cool!

  • NOTES (6)

    • In "The Wiggly Owl Medley", Anthony is absent after "Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car" but then he comes back for "Move Like an Emu". Clare, Joseph and Dominic are also in the audience.

    • The Mandarin Wiggles voice for Henry is voiced by Danny.

    • This episode debuted at the end of Higgly-Wiggly Week at 7am/6am central on Playhouse Disney.

    • This episode marks the first and only time that the Wiggly Medley mentioned singing Wiggly Safari songs such as Move like an Emu.

    • First appearance of the Mandarin Wiggles on Disney. They are:
      Arthur the Yellow Wiggle
      Samuel the Blue Wiggle
      Danny the Purple Wiggle
      Vivi the Red Wiggle

      Although the Mandarin Wiggles were shown in Wiggly Animation, their faces represent their actual people, whereas for the Mariachi Wiggles they were still represented by the original Wiggles in moustaches. Vivi, the Red Wiggle, is a gal.

    • First time in a while that Greg gets to do some magic tricks.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Elvis Presley references.
      The second song in Captain's Magic Buttons is usually the robot song, but Captain does Elvis instead singing You Ain't Nothing But a Hound Dog.
      Anthony's pun is Elvis Parsley.
