Trivia

  • This is the first Wiggles album to feature song lyrics listed in the booklet.
  • This was first and only Wiggles album to feature Cockroaches member Peter Mackie on Acoustic guitar on The Gypsy Rover.
  • This was the first album that Murray, Jeff and Greg were credited as producers, and would remain producers until 1997.
  • This was the first time The Wiggles appeared in their coloured skivvies.
  • Phillip Wilcher, who left shortly after the release of the band's first album from 1991, was supposed to stay as a behind-the-scenes writer for this album, but was apparently told by Anthony at a Neil Diamond concert that the album had been recorded while Phillip was away, and was not needed.
  • Many of the tracks were used in The Wiggles' first video, Wiggle Time!, and its remake. A majority of the album was re-released on the 2000 Wiggle Time! album (named after the video), and its American counterpart Let's Wiggle.
  • Dorothy's Birthday Party, Henry the Octopus and Whenever I Hear This Music were later re-recorded in 1998.
  • EMI Music published all of The Wiggles' songs on this album.
  • The front cover shows a hand-drawn version of Dorothy the Dinosaur.
  • The Wiggles had a deadline to record the album and they were at a recording studio in Cremorne, on Sydney's lower north shore.
  • A re-issue of this album with all 33 tracks was released by Phonogram.
