Plot Intro - where the Wiggles pictures flash on the screen in a 4x4 grid.
The Wiggles introduce themselves.
Song 1: We Like To Say Hello - The Wiggles ride on their outdoor car set through Sydney traffic and bridges.
Greg points out to Henry that someone is waving hello to him, so Henry waves back. Henry announces he has his band and they'll play a song.
Murray introduces Jo and her son Alex at the beachside. Murray interviews Alex about what he likes to do at the beach.
Anthony sings a bunch of rhymes like "Sing Sang Song, that's Greg's song" and "(snooorrre… that's Jeff's song". The SS Feathersword get into the act too and each crew member talks about their pirate item. For instance, Elefterios talks about his Pirate Bouzuki, Ben talks about his Pirate toothbrush, George talks about standing on his Pirate hands.
Jeff's fallen asleep! Greg walks up to him and asks for help to wake him up. Wake up Jeff! Jeff is awake and thanks Greg, but as soon as he leaves, Jeff falls asleep again. Same story with Anthony, and with Murray, except when Murray calls Wake Up Jeff, the guy's still asleep! Murray asks for some ideas, and agrees that we would sing a song to do the trick.
Anthony and Murray sing the main verse of Bucket of Dew.
Greg asks Dorothy about a dance she is doing.
Anthony is wearing a lifejacket and a captain's hat, and invites everyone to get ready for a boat trip. That means putting on the jacket, having a whistle to blow, and waving at the nearby boats.
Jeff introduces Dorothy and asks her about a dance she is doing.
Skit - Captain Feathersword is sad because today is his birthday and it seems like everyone's forgotten about it He had put signs all over, but no one has seen them. Several of the pirate crew come and visit him but when the captain asks them what day it is, they answer with everything except his birthday. Of course they all know it's his birthday but are keeping it a surprise.
Skit continues: Lucia checks that everything is ready. Now it's time to bring the captain over, but how? Adrian does a backflip and announces a plan, and Elefterios goes to get the captain. When they return, they give him a big surprise!
Greg has a challenge for Jeff: can he run? Hop? Sing? Fall asleep? Wake Up Jeff!
Murray introduces Wags and tells him a joke, which Wags laughs at and says "That's funny, Murray!".
Interview: Greg introduces Mike Fincke, an astronaut at the NASA Johnson Space Center. He's been in space for 188 days. They talk about what it's like to fly in space, and also looking at the Earth from space. Mike shows Greg some of the features of the Apollo space suit.
Anthony plays a pipe and asks everyone to join in on the dancing fun. You can dance with a friend or by yourself; it's all good. Everyone will be all dancing the piper's waltz. It comes from beautiful Scotland.
Jeff's fallen asleep one last time. Wake Up Jeff! Jeff awakes just in time but the show's over so everyone waves goodbye.

Australian and UK Special Features menu (no Trailers option)
The prologue for " Henry's Underwater Big Band" was filmed in a live-action style, but the song is in Wiggly Animation instead of live-action.
After Bucket of Dew we start to hear the instrumental version of Dressing Up, but during the transition from Bucket of Dew to the intro to Romp Bomp a Stomp, it switches to the instrumental version of Gulp Gulp.
In " Romp Bomp a Stomp", Dorothy is seen talking, like in the version in the original Wake Up Jeff!, but the song played is the version from The Wiggles Movie, which omits her line.
The song " Guess What?" makes its debut as a Wiggly Animation clip.
Because this video is similar to Wake Up Jeff!, it is some considered a re-recording of the 1996 video.
This was the last Wiggles video to be released on VHS in America.
Songs from this video can be seen in The Wiggles Show (TV Series 2).
On the back of the VHS case, there is an error with the pictures, they're both the same pictures but one of them should've been one with The Wiggles dancing with Wags the Dog. Luckily on the back of the DVD case, the pictures were different from one another.
In The US, The Name Was Wiggle Around the Clock But, Originally it was Gonna Be The Same Name as the AU AU and UK Releases.
