    • The Wiggles only appear in this video as Wiggle Puppets. Captain Feathersword and the Puppets still appear live-action. Whenever the Wiggle Puppets sing, their voices are sped up like the chipmunks in Alvin and the Chipmunks TV show.

      "A Frog Went A-Walking" and the closing song "Dorothy the Dinosaur, Tell Me Who Is That Knocking?" have Greg's normal singing voice, since Puppet Greg does not appear.

  • Allusions

    • "Get Ready To Wiggle" opens with Puppet Greg in a large screen and the other three Wiggles appear in smaller screens to the right. This is similar to the opening of The Brady Bunch. Then towards the end of the video, the Wiggles and mascots appear in a 3x3 grid, also from the same show.
