    • This is the first US release to feature Sam Moran as the Yellow Wiggle. In Australia, he was already participating as the Yellow Wiggle in their concert Wiggledancing Australia video. He goes by Sam Wiggle, or Sam, in the series.

      Also making their debuts on Wiggles videos and TV shows are Emily McGlinn (Dorothy the Dinosaur) and Aussie Donnie (the trumpet and guitar player).

      The Wiggles' outfits received a revamp with this release. Darker strips of their colors are now on the sleeves and collars of their shirts, and their pants now have a thick stripe in their color instead of thinner strips and striped pockets.

      Carolyn Ferrie returns to voice Dorothy the Dinosaur in the series.
