  • Quotes

    • Greg: Hi, everyone. I'm Greg, and hoop dee doo, it's a great day. Guess what? We're off to a wiggly party! Whoo-hoo!

    • (Anthony is wearing Captain Feathersword's jacket)
      Anthony: Greg, I heard you are going to the farm.
      Greg: That's right.
      Anthony: You've planned the trip.
      Greg: Yes, indeed.
      Anthony: (to camera) No need to go the farm, everybody! The farm can come to us.
      Greg: Uh, are you saying that you're gonna do the farm noises?
      Anthony: All the farm noises, all the farm animal actions. I can help to do the Captain's magical musical pirate buttons.
      Greg: Fantastic! All right. Well, let's see how it works. Um, I'd like to hear a cow. (Greg hits one of the magic buttons.)
      Anthony: (flapping arms) Cock-a-doodle-doo! (laughs wheezingly)
      Greg: That doesn't sound quite right. That sounds more like a rooster, doesn't it?
      Anthony: Try another one. I must be doing it wrong.
      Greg: All right. Let's try the rooster button. This must work. (Greg hits another magic button.)
      Anthony: (imitating cow) Moooooooooooo! Moooooooooooo!
      Greg: Hmm. That doesn't seem quite right either. That seems more like a cow. Let's try a sheep. (Greg hits another magic button.)
      Anthony: (imitating dog) Ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff!
      Greg: That sounds more like a dog.
      Anthony: Does too.
      Greg: (sighs) Doesn't seem to be working too well. (turns to Anthony) Anthony, perhaps you should take the jacket back to Captain Feathersword.
      Anthony: (sadly) Great idea, Greg. (walks away)
      Greg: Actually, while you're at it, why don't you see if you get a pair of overalls. You can wear them on the farm.
      Anthony: That's another good idea. Greg, can I try one more thing?
      Greg: Yeah, sure.
      Anthony: (imitating as Captain Feathersword's laugh) Whoo-hoo! (walks away quickly)
      Greg: That's the Captain's laugh! (laughs and then turns to camera) All right. Let's go to the farm. We'll have lots of fun on the farm.

    • Greg: I like the slow button.
      (Greg pushes Captain's button.)
      Captain: (moving arms slowly and singing in a low tone) Quaaaaack Quaaaaaaack
      (Anthony arrives.)
      Anthony: Hey, captain. Captain.
      Captain: Yesssssss, Anthoooonnnyyyy??
      Anthony: Everyone, did Greg press the slow button?
      Captain: Whhhhhaaaatt doooooo…..
      Anthony: He did, didn't he?

    • (Anthony pushes Captain's Opera button)
      Captain: (singing operatically in a high tenor) Quack-a-doodle doo de deeeeeeeeeeeeehhh….(Anthony pushes a button and Captain changes to his normal voice.) ohhhhhhhh

    • Jeff: Hi, I'm Jeff, and I'm staying awake for the Wiggly Party.

    • Murray: Well everyone, I think we're set. I think we're all ready. Let's go to Marie's Wedding.
      Captain: Murray's Wedding?!
      Murray: No no, captain, it's a song called, Mar-ie's Wedding.
      Captain: Oh, Mar-ie's Wedding. Excellent! (takes more pictures)

      On the CD, Duncan explains how the Dublin Zoo is a full-featured animal park with a safari area, lions, tigers, kangaroos, penguins, and wolves.

    • This is the first time we see Anthony wearing Captain Feathersword's jacket in the "Fun on the Farm" intro skit since the time he used to play Captain Feathersword in the early pre-TV series Wiggles videos: "Wiggle Time", "Yummy Yummy" and "Big Red Car." The Captain back then did not have the gimmick of having the buttons produce different sounds and actions.

    • Greg's daughter is named and seen during the Emu skit.

    • Caveland features computer-generated versions of the Wiggles.

    • La Cucaracha is sung entirely in Spanish.

    • CD Notes:

      "Let's Spend a Day at the Beach" is the only song from the related album not to be made into a video.
