  • Trivia

    • Dorothy appears in Romp Bomp a Stomp, but doesn't speak even though it shows her speaking.

    • During the birthday segment, Friendly Pirate Lyn has some trouble keeping her party hat on. Gallant George helps her out.

    • The captions show Ryan's pirate character, the one with the pilot's hat, as Gallant George.

    • Friendly Pirate and Dancer mixup?
      When the first group of pirates visit Captain Feathersword, the caption refers to Lyn speaking, but she looks more like Caterina, so it's hard to tell who is who. In the later scenes Lyn wears a cowboy hat.

      Similarly, in some scenes Katherine looks like Lucy since they both have short blond hair.

    • Katherine Patrick dresses up as Officer Beaples in the opening song.

  • Notes

    • The song "Everybody is Clever" wasn't re-filmed or added to this album, even though it was part of the song list for the original Wake Up Jeff album and its Australian version video.

    • This is the first time "Walking on the Moon" is seen as a live-action video. It was previously seen as Wiggly Animation in the TV series.

    • Some of the songs from the original "Wake Up Jeff" video and companion Album have been updated:

      Dorothy Would You Like To Dance With Me?
      The Wake Up Jeff version features more guitar and no keyboard, while the Wiggle Around The Clock version features the keyboard set to sound like a harpsichord.

    • The new version of the instrumental song, "Wake Up Jeff!" is heard during the intro and end credits on the video. It can also be found on a special Wiggles Karaoke CD, "Crunchy Munchy Music".
