The Wiggles Movie (video release, 1998)

"Yummy Yummy", like Wiggle Time, is a remake of the 1994 video of the same name, released in 1998. It is arguably The Wiggles' most popular video, launching the popularity of songs like Hot Potato, Fruit Salad, and The Monkey Dance (which had first been released years beforehand).

Some songs were re-recorded for this version, such as the previously mentioned Hot Potato and The Monkey Dance. Songs like Pufferbillies, Havenu Shalom Alechem, were not in the original version, but added to this video. No songs from the original video were removed, except for Dorothy's Birthday Party from the bonus segment at the end.

The Wiggles introduce themselves and Paul the Cook. Paul has some hot potatoes, cold spaghetti, and mashed bananas. Greg introduces a song and warns the audience to look out for Captain Feathersword.

Anthony introduces the song about an old steam train and asks everyone to follow along.

Captain Feathersword does a dance that Henry showed him. The Wiggles want to do it too.

Greg comments on how there are many places you can walk or run to. Dorothy is walking and eating some roses. Captain Feathersword is running to his pirate ship. Henry walks to the ocean to have a swim. Wags is running to get some bones. Jeff is sleepwalking. Greg leaves Jeff leaving and goes after him.

Anthony is with four children playing with coloured dough and tells the good things about what to do with dough, like hammering.

On the number 5, everyone's nodding their heads! Then everyone goes to sleep and wakes up from that, except for Jeff. Anthony asks the kids to help wake Jeff up. 1, 2, 3, Wake Up Jeff! Jeff gets up and bounces around making monkey sounds. Anthony asks what he is doing. Jeff says he's doing a monkey dance.

The Wiggles and Captain Feathersword are making crunchy munchy honey cakes, and spell out the different ingredients. Get an apron and a parent to help you when you make these.

Greg and the wiggles are going to get ready for the song, but first they need to get into their shaking clothes. They go behind a partition and come out dressed like Elvis. Each one sounds off that they have their shaking clothes.

There are many ways to say hello. Each of the Wiggles say hello in a different language. In Hebrew, they say "Havenu shalom alechem."

Also known as "Point Your Finger", the longest, loudest, and most likely to some creepiest song in the set. Look for visits from the Mexican iguanas, Henry's underwater big band friends, and Dorothy the Dinosaur. Halfway through the mix, it changes to It's a Pirate Party on the Good Ship Feathersword.

  • Song 12: I am a Dancer – Greg lead sings this one, while the other wiggles do ballet moves running across in the background.

Closing credits played to Henry's Dance featuring clips from this video.

Similarities to the 1994 version

  • The Wiggles introduce themselves with the chef of the video after the video's title card.
  • The Cold Spaghetti is shown before the mashed bananas, shown before the hot potatoes.
  • After the chef shows the hot potatoes, The Wiggles have a potato in their hands throwing it into the air and catching it again because they're hot potatoes.
  • After their hands burning from the potatoes, Greg suggests the sing about the Chef's foods. (With the actions for each food done by everyone in the shot) And right before they sing, Greg tells the audience to look out for Captain Feathersword because he loves eating others' food.
  • In the "Whoo Wiggy Wiggy Wiggy, Whoo Wiggy, Wiggy, Wiggy, Gimme that, Gimme that, Gimme that food" part, the chef walks by the Wiggles with food and Captain Feathersword is chasing the chef.
  • The Wiggles see Captain Feathersword doing Henry's dance and want to try it. Captain forgets some parts of the dance so The Wiggles ask Henry.
  • The Crunchy Munchy Honey cakes are made with the Wiggles, chef, and Captain.
  • The Captain steals the honey cakes in the last part of the last time the chorus is sung. The Wiggles and the chef chase Captain Feathersword in a circle while the song fades out.
  • Greg introduces "Walk" and many different ways to move around before singing.
  • In the prologues for Joannie Works with One hammer, Anthony is with some kids playing with clay. They pound their clay to represent hammers. There are kids with the Wiggles in the song.
  • After the song about Joannie, Jeff falls asleep because of the last line in the song. After being woken up Jeff acts like a monkey because he dreamt he was one.
  • Children are seen with the Wiggles in the Monkey Dance.
  • The Wiggles change into shaking clothes before singing Shaky Shaky.
  • Greg does "The Box Of Mystery Trick" where he pulls out hankies.
  • Bananas are held up by the kids when they review the numbers with Murray.
  • In the Numbers Rhumba, Greg holds the number 1, Murray holds the number 2, Jeff holds the number 3, and Anthony is wearing a sombrero on his head playing his trumpet.
