Trivia

  • Some of these songs were originally recorded way before this album was released. You can tell this because they were used in Yummy Yummy.
  • The original recording of "Can You Point Your Fingers and Do the Twist?", which appears on this album, is in D major. Later recordings are in E major. However, a photo that featured the current Wiggles (Simon, Emma, Lachy, and Anthony) singing this song was taken on August 29th 2016, so this means they might have recorded it in D major.
  • Some songs from this Album are Based on Cockroaches songs like Big Red Car is based on (I'll Come Running Back), Do the Flap is based on (You Got the Drop)
  • This album marks the first appearance of Wags the Dog.
  • Anthony's brother John writes Wags the Dog, Dorothy's Dance Party, Hat On My Head & Do the Flap.
  • Tony Henry who is the drummer for The Cockroaches wrote the music for Do the Flap.
