"Wiggly TV" is a compilation video of episodes from TV Series 2 released in 2000 on DVD and 2001 on VHS. The VHS version contains two episodes, Playtime and Wiggly History, as well as an electronic storybook and bloopers. The DVD version also contains the episode Family, plus DVD-ROM features.

In the United States and Canada, a similar video titled Wiggly Play Time was released the same year, combining these same three episodes into one full-length video.

US Version

Main article: Wiggly Play Time

In the US, this video was released on VHS on August 14, 2001 under the title "Wiggly Play Time". In this version, all three episodes are played as though they were one complete video, and to transition between each episode they use the bee and flower from the intro. Despite this, the description on the cover still mentions that they are three episodes from The Wiggles' television series.

In Canada, a DVD was released in 2004, with only trailers and static menus. In 2004, the DVD was released in America with newly animated menus, and new bonus features. It features the electronic storybook The Big Red Car Has a Rattling Experience, and also includes two bonus episodes of TV Series 3, in addition to trailers and a song jukebox. The bloopers are not included on the VHS or either DVD.
