  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Cheap flashback: In the flashback where Murray sings Starry Night, the stars twinkle in front of Murray.

    • Instruments
      Jeff plays the Hofner bass guitar on the song, "Taba Naba".
      In "Haru Ga Kita", Murray plays the acoustic guitar, but the song does not feature guitar music.
      Anthony plays drums for the first time on video since Wake Up Jeff back in 1996.
      Slim Dusty's signature guitar strap reads Waltzing Matilda, which is a popular Australian anthem.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • (Murray plays some chords on his guitar.)
      Murray: (to camera) I'm just trying to think of a song. You know, you can sing songs about all sorts of different things. We've got songs about food, about driving in the car about our friends. You know, I once sang a song all about the stars. Yeah, that was a good song.

    • Greg: (to audience while Captain Feathersword and Dorothy are drinking rosy tea) Everybody, we have a bit of a problem. You see, ever since Captain Feathersword tasted Dorothy's rosy tea, that's all that he can never think about and all he can ever talk about. Let me show you what I mean.
      Captain Feathersword: Oh, Greg, what's the letter in the alphabet that comes after "S"?
      Greg: "T".
      Dorothy: (giggles) Heeeeeeeeeeeee!
      Captain Feathersword: Oh, Greg, what do you put a golf ball on before you start playing golf?
      Greg: A tee.
      Dorothy: (giggles again) Heeeeeeeeeeeee!
      Captain Feathersword: Oh, Greg, what do you have in the afternoon when you have scones and jam and cream? It's called afternoon.
      Greg: Tea.
      Captain Feathersword: (laughs) That's right, Greg. It's tea. You can have tea. (speaking in a high voice)
      Dorothy: (giggles again) Heeeeeeeeeeeee!

    • Firsts

      Guest musicians, such as Kamahl, join the Wiggles on different songs. The songs in the video are redone versions of the artist's music.

      The companion CD recognizes Sing With Me as Dorothy the Dinosaur's singing debut.


      Leanne Halloran makes her final appearance on the show as Officer Beaples.

    • Tim Finn is the second guest from the Australian band Crowded House to appear on The Wiggles. The first was Paul Hester who played Paul the cook in "Fruit Salad,"Yummy Yummy, 1998.

    • It's a Wiggly Wiggly World album

      Australian boy-band Human Nature was not shown in the video, but they sang the background vocals for the One Little Coyote song and were introduced in the album.

      The album includes a song "Porcupine Pie" which was not on the video.

      Conversely, the "Starry Night" song and skit was only on the video and was not a track on the album.


    • The last part of the US DVD jumps straight to the credits, and The Wiggles' names are only seen for a moment before scrolling off for other credits.

    • It's a Wiggly Wiggly World concert tour
      During December 2000, The Wiggles' concert tour in Australia was called Yule Be Wiggling to include both Wiggly Wiggly World songs and some Christmas songs they had put together. After Christmas was over, it returned to just being It's a Wiggly Wiggly World.
      The Wiggles played 11 cities in the UK area from March-April 2001. They were not able to make it to Ireland although they had just started broadcasting their TV series in January 2001 and have recorded several Irish songs on their albums.

    • The UK release includes a live bonus track of "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport" starring Rolf Harris.

    • Outtakes from the video can be found on the "Wiggly TV" DVD.


    • The Cockroaches

      "In The Wiggles World" is loosely based on The Cockroaches song, "She Goes On and On", found on their eponymous album released 1987.

    • I Love to Have a Dance with Dorothy
      This song is based on Slim Dusty's song, "Duncan," which was first released in 1980 and became a #1 hit in Australia. He later re-recorded the song with Rolf Harris in 1996 on his 50th anniversary with EMI Australia.
