Trivia

  • This video marks the first appearance of the new generation.
  • The whole video was filmed in England, Australia and Canada.
  • Despite Greg, Jeff and Murray no longer being the Wiggles, they make cameos in this video. Jeff makes a cameo in "Do the Propeller" and "Little Bunny Foo-Foo" as himself, "Emma (With the Bow in Her Hair)" as a king and "Who's Got Da Bones?" as the waiter. Greg also makes a cameo as the passenger in "Emma (With the Bow in Her Hair)" and Murray cameos in "The Shimmie Shake" along with Greg and Jeff.
  • Jeff was also seen in a promo picture of "Little Bunny Foo-Foo".
  • In "Everybody's Here" and "Get Ready to Wiggle", Jeff plays Henry the Octopus and Anthony plays Wags the Dog. This inspires back in the early days.
  • In "Simon Says", the line "Put your hands on your chin" also inspires by the one in "Everybody is Clever".
  • At the end of "Do the Propeller", Lachy's flag comes flying off his stick and off the back of the bus. He looks at it and laughs.
  • In "I've Got My Glasses On", the first line of "I Can See Clearly Now" is similar to the Jimmy Cliff song of the same name.
  • The scene where Anthony can't do the propeller until Captain Feathersword helps him in "Do the Propeller" was orignially used in "Celebration!".
  • "Peanut Butter" was the first song filmed on May 17th 2012 after the "A Message to The Wiggles' Fans" retirement announcement video was uploaded on YouTube because the Wiggles don't have any shoes to wear, not even Emma.
  • In a Facebook album they have a picture of Who Got Da Bones?, in the video the put bones on the sides.
  • Little Bunny Foo-Foo was supposed to be filmed outside, but they decided to film it at a concert.
  • The Christmas Celebration! Tour set is seen where the Wiggles are in the Big Red Car introducing themselves. This was filmed on December 23rd at the Sydney Entertainment Centre after the original Wiggles' final tour ended.
  • Simon plays the Red Starry Keyboard in "Beep Beep, Buckle Up".
  • In "The Shimmie Shake", Greg Jeff and Murray were dressed as bucket of popcorn.
  • This video inspires by the original lineup of the Wiggles' first video: "Wiggle Time" released in 1993.
  • In "I've Got My Glasses On!" Emma wears glasses. In real life she does wear glasses, but when she's wiggling she has contacts in her eyes.
  • In "Emma (With the Bow In Her Hair)" when the Male Wiggles sing "One day we were walking on a windy day", a boat is in the background and people in the boat are waving at The Wiggles.
  • This is the last video that shows Anthony playing the drums. But later he's the new king of guitars.
  • Emma's hairstyle changes throughout the video.
  • According to the end credits, Mimi's full name is Marie-Michelle Bourgeau.
  • In Get Ready to Wiggle the background singing is the same as the original. And for the first time, we have two lead singers for the verses and bridge. (Although Emma can be heard when more than one Wiggle is singing)
  • "The Shimmie Shake" was filmed at a Celebration! tour in 2012. Because Anthony says "We're gonna bring some guitars from the king of guitars, Murray!. If it was from a tour in 2013, he would've said Former king of guitars.
  • In "Rock-a-Bye Your Bear" there is different background music playing.
  • In "Alouette (Mimi's Dance)", the original music for "Little Bunny Foo-Foo" is played while Mimi is dancing.
  • Songs from this video can be seen in the new Wiggles TV Series.
  • Some of the songs that weren't used in this video such as "I Stamp" and "Roll the Acrobats" were later released on two later videos: Pumpkin Face and Wiggle House. Others such as an early draft of "Little Bunny Foo-Foo" with Lachy as the bunny himself were abandoned because the Wiggles in their today generation are not allowed to release them.
