Sailing Around the World
is the 20th Wiggles video. It was released on September 1, 2005 in Australia, and on July 19, 2005 in the US. This video is a compilation of Sailing Around the World segments that appeared on
TV Series 4
, with their accompanying songs included.
The video's focus on Captain Feathersword and his crew was met with some criticism, and is one of the most negatively reviewed video on sites like Amazon. Of course, most Wiggles fans still appreciate it despite its different feel.
It took about 2 months to film this video. First the outside scenes were filmed in June 2004, then the studio scenes were filmed in July 2004.
Note: All songs are taken from the
album of the same name, except where noted otherwise.

The songs and segments from this video can be seen in TV Series 4.
The songs Sailing Around the World in a live-action style and Hula, Hula, Hula (Nothing Could Be Cooler) were filmed but they were removed and replaced with Wiggly Animation version of Sailing Around the World. The songs were still shown on television. Basically, this video is the introduction to Wiggly Animation.
Anthony's wife, Miki and baby daughter, Lucia appear in Sicily (I Want to Go).
The clips taken at the countries were filmed in full screen, while the rest of the video was filmed in widescreen so the clips taken at the countries included borders of the country's flag.
This is the second video to be focused on Captain Feathersword
This video reused one song from It's a Wiggly, Wiggly World and one Top of the Tots ( Let's Go! We're Riding in the Big Red Car and Fly Through The Sky respectively).
Here Come the Chicken made its debut on the video, as a Wiggly Animation song, though it was not included on the album. It later appear in the Racing to the Rainbow album (and video in live-action form).
The video was released in America on July 19, 2005, before the album version was released on August 23, 2005
The Original US DVD Back Cover says the running time is 116 Minutes including bonus features. This is carried over on the Warner Home Video re-release, without noting the inclusion of bonus features.
The credits show that Sicily (I Want to Go) and Here We Go Mexico City! were written by The Wiggles, John Field, and Dominic Lindsay, although none of them did.
