Trivia

  • Sam Moran who later became the Yellow Wiggle in November 2006 wrote the lyrics for The Princess of the Sea with Brett Clarke & The Wiggles.
  • Anthony's brother Paul wrote the lyrics for Rockin' on the Water with John Field & The Wiggles.
  • They wrote all the songs for this album in January 2006 except for Here Come The Chicken which was written in January 2005 after that they went on to write songs for their upcoming album Getting Strong! which was supposed to be released in December 2006 but got cancelled & pushed back to May 2007 due to Greg's departure.
  • John Field and Dominic Lindsay writes the music and lyrics for most of the songs such as Shakin' Like a Leafy Tree.
  • All songs were written or arranged by different combinations of the Wiggles and their friends, except "Music Box Dancer", which was Frank Mills and "Love Train" which was written by Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff.
  • This is the first album where Sam Moran wrote songs.

  • Kamahl and Georgie Parker guest star in Love Train.
  • This was the only album to feature Derek Antunes on drums alongside Tony Henry who as been the drummer for The Wiggles since 1994.

  • Some of the songs use MIDI instruments such as the percussion and strings instead of real ones.

  • This was the last album to feature Sam Moran on backing vocals.
  • Craig Abercrombie, Brett Clarke, and Sam Moran do the Manzilla picthes of the vocals.

  • There have been various mistakes on other album releases such as the US release and the double pack release. For example, The Wiggles thought they wrote Blow Up Your Balloon (Huff and Huff and Puff) all by themselves but they didn't because Dominic Lindsay wrote it with them. Another example is that on the DVD release, Greg's name was removed from the credits of Shakin' Like a Leafy Tree, although his name was still there on the album booklets.
