|Approx. Running Time||
The Body is the 22nd Wiggles 1999 episode.
The Wiggles talk about exercise and getting fit.
The Wiggles are riding in the Big Red Car when the car stops and falls asleep. The car is too tired to go on. The Wiggles remark about how the car needs to rest and eat properly. Since it's a Wiggle car, it doesn't run on ordinary car fuel but a good tune.
- Song 1: "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes"
Captain Feathersword and the Pirates are marching around. Captain remarks that his pirates need to be stronger. The pirates deny that, so Captain feels their muscles. He also dares them to blow him down, but they can't. He scolds the pirates some more saying that if they don't shape up they'll be like a lazy dog like Wags. Wags, after hearing several insults about him being lazy, can't take it anymore and blows the Captain and his crew into the sea.
- Song 2: "Wags The Dog He Likes To Tango"
Captain Feathersword and Wags are walking when they realize they've exchanged voices. They're on Each Other's Voices Street. Wags takes this opportunity to sing.
The Wiggles arrive at Wags' house where Dorothy and Wags are getting ready to watch the Fiona Fitbelly show. The Wiggles talk about how important exercise is. Dorothy mentions it's good for your blood. Eating properly is important too. Each Wiggle checks that their brain power is good by doing some simple math (1+1=2, 2+2=4, etc.). They watch the Fiona Fitbelly show. Afterwards, all the Wiggles collapse. Dorothy remarks that too much exercise will make you tired so don't overdo it. She gets everyone to wake up the Wiggles so they can perform their next tune, which also has Dorothy in it!
- Song 3: "Romp Bomp a Stomp" – Wiggly Concert
The Wiggles are outside. Murray remarks why wasn't Wags called a "quadrapus". The other Wiggles look at him funny. Murray continues with his logic about humans being a "duopus". Before the other Wiggles write him off as crazy, Murray explains that Henry is an octopus; octo meaning "eight", and that "quadro" is Latin for "four". The other Wiggles start to understand.
The pirate crew has been exercising and now they are much stronger. They do a pirate dance and the whole gang gets involved.
