  • Trivia

    • Credits goof - scroll away will ya?
      After the scrolling credits, Chris Walker's name is stuck at the top of the screen while they list the Songs and some of the other credits.

    • Mariachi Wiggles
      The videos for the Mariachi Wiggles show the original Wiggles in Mariachi hats, but the songs are sung by the new Spanish Wiggles who have their own spinoff show. The yellow Wiggle is voiced by Fernandito Moguel, who's sung on the Wiggles videos before with his father.

    • Cruising with the Wiggles
      During the Dressing Up video, the Wiggles pass the same auto dealership and Midas store three times.

    • Instant Italian
      Greg says he doesn't know any Italian songs, until Prof. Singalottasonga teaches him a simple song. Then Greg for some reason knows how to sing another Italian song, Balla Balla Bambina.

    • Missing lip sync: Little Brown Ant
      The song is clearly pre-recorded as there are female backup singers from the album itself that never make it on screen. You'd think they would at least put in one of the Wiggly Dancer gals.

    • Is Jeff Asleep or Awake? Continuity Goof:
      In the video for Let's Go (We're Riding in the Big Red Car) Jeff falls asleep, and Murray says to let him sleep. In the final scene, Jeff is shown awake and looking around, while the music shows he is yawning and waking up.

    • (The Wiggles give Wags their order)

      Anthony: (singing in an extremely low bass voice): He likes to sleeeeep.

    • Anthony: After our last show, I gave our drums to our friend, Bill O'Reilly, so he could use them at his school fete.
      Greg: Who did you say you gave your drums to?
      Anthony: Bill O'Reilly.
      Greg: Oh really?
      Anthony: No. O'Reilly.
      (Anthony plays a "drum flourish" with his drum sticks and smiles. Then he looks down and realizes he's still playing air drums while a "boing" sounds.)

    • (The Wiggles notice Anthony's playing air drums)
      Murray: Anthony, what are you doing?
      Anthony: Murray, good question. I'm a r-r-rockin' on my drums. Yeah!
      Jeff: Anthony, you might think you're drumming but I can't hear anything.
      Anthony: Well, that's because they're very quiet drums.
      Greg: Anthony, they're not quiet drums. Ha! You don't have any drums at all.
      Anthony: Ohh! Well I was hoping you wouldn't notice, Greg.

    • Captain Feathersword (in a proper English voice): And now we'll hear the operatic sounds of Paulo Pianoforte.
      Friendly Pirate Dave: Ooh, Paulo Pianoforte, I'm such a fan!

    • Captain Feathersword (in a DJ voice): And now we'll hear the Hit of the Week. It's a solid hit. It's a solid gold number one hit. It's hot. It's hotter than hot. It's Hot Hot Hot! (pause, then singing like Elvis) Hot Potato, Hot Potato…
