Special Features

Plot

The video intro is the theme of TV Series 2. The difference is instead of The Wiggles appearing in front of Wigglehouse, they're in space floating in front of the Wiggly Wiggly World! with the video title.

The Wiggles introduce themselves and ask if they want to meet their friends Captain Feathersword, Dorothy, Wags, and Henry.

Driving in the Big Red Car, Greg sits in the yellow seat and watches the road. Anthony sits in the blue seats and likes to eat crackers. Jeff sits in the purple seat and will try to stay awake if you can help him. Murray asks can you guess what seat he sits in? That's right, the red one, and he likes to play his guitar. So why don't we go for a ride in the Big Red Car.

Greg introduces Slim Dusty in the next song.

The Wiggles and Mascots dance in a barn while Slim Dusty plays guitar from the rafters. Murray introduces Christine Anu who talks about the Taba Naba song which comes from the Eastern Torres Strait and is sung in the Meriam Mir language. Taba Naba translates to "Let's go to the reef and have a good time".

Greg and Christine sit with a bunch of kids to do the dance while the other three Wiggles play guitars. Anthony introduces Rolf Harris. Rolf has a wobble board, which makes a wobbly sound when you shake it. He wrote the next song.

The Wiggles dance around while Rolf uses the wobble board. Greg introduces Kamahl. He and Dorothy will sing together for the first time.

Each of the Wiggles visits Captain Feathersword and shows off a silly wiggly dance. Captain has one too and demonstrates: "Do the dance, do the dance, do the pirate dance!" Let's all do pirate dancing!

Greg says we have a problem. Captain Feathersword can't stop drinking rosy tea from Dorothy. To show how addicted he is, Captain asks Greg a bunch of questions like: What's letter comes after S? What do you put a golf ball on? What do you eat scones and jam with? The answer of course is Tea!

Murray talks about the time when he once spoke about the stars. Flashback – Murray looks in the sky and wants to serenade them.

He wishes he could see his favorite constellation the Great Guitar. And then he's able to spot it. Murray marks he always wanted to play with the big stars. Greg introduces Tim Finn, who's from New Zealand. He wrote the next song for the Captain.

Murray and Greg make animal sounds and they guess what they are.

The Wiggles and the pirate dancers greet Captain Feathersword. Murray remarks how everyone's there to dance with him. Well, blow me down. Murray blows him down. Captain says he plays that game all the time, so it's time to play it.

Jeff introduces the next song.

Jeff introduces Jimmy Little and asks what his favorite song, which is the next one.

The Wiggles introduce Atsuko and she's from Nara City in Japan. She wears a kimono. They will sing Haru Ga Kita which means Spring Has Come.

The Wiggles say goodbye as the credits roll up in front of "Wiggly Wiggly World" planet, with the theme song playing.

Trivia

  • This video was released in the US under the name "Wiggly Wiggly World!", though the title card in the video (and later the DVD menu) retains the "It's a Wiggly Wiggly World!" title.
  • This is the first Wiggles video to feature special guests.
  • Sing with Me marks the first time Dorothy sings.
  • This is the second video where every song has an intro, the first was the original Yummy Yummy.
  • The second time Jeff plays Hofner bass guitar, after Yummy Yummy (1998 video).
  • Anthony is seen playing drums again in this video for the first time since Wake Up Jeff!, 4 years before.
  • Anthony's belt breaks at the end of the video for Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport.
  • This is the first and only appearance for the Black Takamine Guitar.
  • This is the last video appearance of the Red Starry Guitar and the Yellow Takamine Guitar.
  • This the last appearance of Leanne Halloran as Officer Beaples.
  • This the last appearance of Irish Dancers from The Halloran School of Dance.
  • Fans consider this video a direct-to-video TV Series 2 special or finale, due to its use of the same Wiggles World motif/location, and the In the Wiggles World theme song appearing as the intro.
    • In addition to In The Wiggles World, Starry Night is taken directly from the episode Playtime (though the audio was re-recorded), and is introduced as a flashback to it.
    • Bloopers from this video are seen in Wiggly TV, alongside bloopers from the TV Series.
  • Captain Feathersword had more songs than any other character in this video.
  • Murray's daughter, Georgia Munro-Cook can be seen in Hey, Hey, Hey, We're all Pirate Dancing and One Little Coyote.
  • Human Nature, who recorded harmony backing vocals and wild west sounds in the album version of One Little Coyote, do not appear in the video. As a result, new backing vocals and sound effects were recorded by The Wiggles and their musicians.
  • The ending scene dialogue from Yummy Yummy (1998 video) is reused at the start of the end credits.
  • The background for the intro to In the Big Red Car We Like to Ride is a still from Counting and Numbers, with a red shovel from that episode seen in the car.
  • The DVD release features a slightly different end credits than the VHS. The VHS credits feature the Wiggles World Planet in the background, and the DVD release doesn't. Also, it is in a different font. You can start to see the start of the original credits for about half a second behind the transition, before the new one starts.
  • The UK release of the Wiggly Big Show uses this video's name and contains Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport taken directly from this video.
  • Slim Dusty's wife Joy McKean, Christine Anu and Jimmy Little later appear in a bonus feature on the 2005 DVD.
