Trivia

  • The album was recorded throughout 2016. In fact, more than 50 photos were taken during production
  • The album was first mentioned by Anthony Field during The Wiggles' 25th Anniversary interview.
  • Jimmy Barnes had rewrote all the rest of the lyrics from It's a Christmas Party, on the Goodship Feathersword for it's adaptation It's a Parrot Party but one word was reused from the song it was based on, we're gonna party, party, party, party which was written by Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt, Anthony Field, and Greg Page. This could be similar to the Bananas in Pyjamas song Walking in the Park, which was adapted from Tidy Up Song on the original Wiggles' Here Comes A Song album.
  • People from The Wiggles make cameos throughout the album. Even Anthony's daughter Maria Field sings in Tip Toe in the Snow.
  • The album was never made into a DVD, although one of the songs, I'm a G'Nu, was made into a cartoon music video for YouTube.
  • Behind the Scenes images show Anthony Field and John Field playing the acoustic guitar and ukulele I Got New Shoes, Jimmy Barnes, John Field, and Paul Field doing lead and backing vocals on We Love Haggis, Stew and Shortbread Too!, Lachlan Gillespie, Emma Watkins, and Jackie Barnes recording backing vocals I'll Be With You Forever, and Lachlan Gillespie and Jackie Barnes playing kazoos on My G'Nu Kazoo.
