Episode Recap

Anthony and Mario are wearing mariachi uniforms. Mario goes "Ai-Yi-Yi!" and says something in Spanish. Not Mariachi Wiggles, but here comes the first song.
Song #1: Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)

Murray notices Jeff is asleep. Let's wake him up. 1, 2, 3, Wake Up Jeff! Jeff is up, and says it's time for a nursery rhyme.
Song #2: The Grand Old Duke of York

Murray goes to the mailbox. He is checking if he has any letters. He picks up a note, and on the envelope is a picture of a guitar. Murray comments that he plays guitar, so maybe it could be for him? The picture of the guitar is on top of a red circle. Murray wears red, so it must be his mail. He opens the envelope, and it contains a card with music notes on it. Inside it reads, "Love, from Wags." Murray thinks that's great, and reminds himself he will have to write back to Wags.

Song #3: Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, Turn Around

Anthony the doctor
Anthony is dressed up Like a Doctor. Jeff arrives and greets Anthony. Jeff asks what Anthony is dressed up as. Anthony responds, "Guess."

Jeff looks at Anthony's costume and points to Anthony's stethoscope, saying those are binoculars. Anthony replies, "Oh no, they're not." Jeff replies, "Oh yes, they are." Anthony replies, "Oh no, they're not." Jeff replies, "Oh yes, they are." After arguing this a few times, Jeff asks what it is. Anthony replies, "Ask our friends." Jeff asks the audience what they think it is, and gets the answer of stethoscope. Jeff guesses stethoscope, and that's right.

Next clue: Anthony points to his mask. Jeff knows that one; it's a surgical mask. That's correct.

Next, Anthony points to what he is wearing. Jeff states it's a dressing gown. Anthony replies, "Oh no, it's not." Jeff replies "Oh yes, it is." After some exchanges, Jeff asks what it is, and Anthony tell him to ask their friends again. Jeff asks the audience, and gets the answer that it's a doctor's coat.

So Anthony has a stethoscope, a surgical mask, and a doctor's coat. What is he? Jeff reviews the clues, but still wants one more clue. Anthony puts the stethoscope on his ears and the other end reaches out to something. He says, "Good. Very good," and continues to comment as he moves the scope around. Jeff knows now: Anthony is a doctor. That's right. So that leaves one more question: where is he going today? Anthony replies that he's going with Jeff to the teddy bears hospital. And they leave.

More dancing across.

Anthony says look, I'm a cook. It's time for a nursery rhyme.
Song #4: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush

Sam sings the "what happens next is up to you" song.

Sam greets Captain Feathersword who is showing Jeff some nautical knots. Sam and Jeff hail the Captain with an "Ahoy there." Captain ahoys back and says, "Welcome to my dock. It's two o'clock." Sam and Jeff find that interesting that Captain is speaking in rhymes. Captain answers, "I'm a poet, and I didn't know it."

Sam suggests that they play a rhyming game. We can say a word, like hop, and then everyone hops. Then someone says a word that rhymes with hop, like "flop", and then everyone flops to the ground. They continue on this theme with hop, stop, hop, and drop.

In the next round the starting word is clap. Everyone claps. What rhymes with clap? Sam excuses himself asking the others to wait a Wiggly minute, and he steps out to sing another verse of that "what happens next is up to you" song. He then comes back but asks the audience first for a suggestion as to what rhymes with clap. He gets some ideas and then returns to the game. So the actions go clap, slap (everyone slaps their legs), and flap (flap arms like a bird).

In the next round, Jeff starts with row. Everyone moves their arms like they are rowing a boat. Then Captain says slow, and everyone moves and talks really slowly. Sam says low, and everyone ducks.

In the next round, the word is peep. Everyone acts like birds. Sam says beep, and everyone makes the motion of honking a car horn. Jeff says sleep. Sam and Captain Feathersword pretend to sleep but then Jeff has really fallen asleep. We better wake him up. 1, 2, 3, Wake Up Jeff! Jeff wakes up and thanks everyone.

In the next round, Jeff starts with jump, and everyone jumps around. Captain says bump and they bump into each other slowly.

Sam says sit, and everyone sits. Captain comments how fun that game was, and now they are ready to rest.

Sam leaves to sing one more verse of that "what happens next is up to you" song. When he comes back, he asks everyone to sing a song about rhymes. Jeff agrees, and everyone says, "Beauty, mate!"
Song #5: One, Two, Three, Four Rhymes

Song #6: Pop Goes the Weasel (Murray)

Sam and Lyn dance across.
Song #7: Incy Wincy Spider

Captain greets Anthony. Captain asks if he saw the song that just played, but Anthony hasn't. So Captain recites the rhyme, Anthony acts out the incy wincy spider with his hands. When they get to the "Down came the rain and washed the spider out" part, Captain pours the watering can on Anthony's hands. Afterwards, Captain asks what he thought of the rhymes. Anthony likes it; he wants to hear another one. So Captain grabs the big watering can and sings
Song #8 It's Raining, It's Pouring.
Captain pours the watering can on top of Anthony's head and Anthony gets really wet. Anthony laughs that off.
