Back Cover Description

Australia's favourite children's entertainers, The Wiggles and Dorothy the Dinosaur have made a very special video. Dorothy the Dinosaur Goes to Hospital tells the tale of what happens when Dorothy has to go to Sydney's Children's Hospital, Randwick. This video will be a wonderful tool in preparing children for the experience of going to hospital, meeting Doctors and having an anesthetic. Going to the hospital can be a positive experience and it's certainly made easier with your friends, The Wiggles.


  • This video only runs 12 minutes, making it the shortest Wiggles' video released.
  • This is the only Dorothy video that features the Wiggles.
  • This video holds the record for the shortest songlist, with only five songs. Runner-ups are Space Dancing! and Captain Feathersword, the Friendly Pirate.
  • Like most 1998 and 1999 media, Dorothy is voiced by Simon Pryce's next door neighbor Elisha Burke.
  • After Dorothy introduces The Male Wiggly Friends to her friends at the hospital, the audio cuts off for a moment.
  • This video was written by The Wiggles' teacher Kathleen Warren.
  • For some reason, the video forgot to add the word "The" as in "Dorothy the Dinosaur Goes to the Hospital".
