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 lack of attention on The Wiggles themselves, focusing instead on Captain Feathersword and his crew, was met with some criticism, and is one of the more negatively reviewed Wiggles videos on sites like Amazon. Of course, most Wiggles fans still appreciate it despite its different feel.
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, some of which contain extra epilogues where in Captain states it's time to wave goodbye (usually being splashed by water as he says "wave", unless indoors).
- Music videos (and related segments) for the songs Sailing Around The World (in live-action) and Hula, Hula, Hula Nothing Could Be Cooler! were filmed for this video but dropped. The former song was replaced with a Wiggly Animation version, while the latter song was removed entirely despite being referenced in San Francisco Trolley Car's segment (where Captain sings it briefly) and the epilogue (where Murray is seen with a lei around his neck and holding a ukulele). Both songs and their segments appear in TV Series 4 (specifically the episodes We're Taking A Trip Across The Sea and Wiggly Friends). The rumor says that an early cut with the deleted scenes but without the transitions, Wiggly Animation clips, opening title card, or closing credits might had been used on an American promo screener DVD, just like LIVE Hot Potatoes! and Lights, Camera, Action!.
- It was thought to be the last Wiggles VHS released in Australia for many years, until the existence of a rare Here Comes The Big Red Car VHS was discovered.
- It is the first of only two Wiggles VHS cover where it has the colour G rated logo.
- The back VHS cover has no ABC Video logo.
- This is the second video to be focused on Captain Feathersword, after Captain Feathersword the Friendly Pirate.
- The clips filmed in the different countries were filmed in full screen, while the rest of the video was filmed in widescreen.
- This is the first DVD to be released in America in anamorphic 16:9 widescreen. Cold Spaghetti Western was the first in Australia, while its American release was letterbox widescreen.
- Anthony's wife, Miki and baby daughter, Lucia appear in Sicily (I Want To Go).
- New Wiggly Animation versions of the songs Let's Go (We're Riding In The Big Red Car) and Fly Through The Sky appear (originally from It's a Wiggly Wiggly World! and Top of the Tots respectively).
- Likewise, Here Come The Chicken made its debut as a Wiggly Animation song on this video, though it was not included on the album or any other until until Racing to the Rainbow (as its video used the song in live-action form).
- On the Australian VHS, the aspect ratio was 4:3 Letterbox and was cropped to 14:9.
- This is the last Wiggles US DVD to have the Trailers menu, Although the Trailers selection is still used.
- Some songs used in this video were from TV Series 4.
- In the Fullscreen footage for San Francisco Trolley Car, Captain Feathersword is seen in his 1997-2002 Jacket.
- This is the first Australian DVD where the 11-minute version of the Lights, Camera, Action, Wiggles! TV Series episodes are in their actual widescreen format (16x9).
- The credits show that Here We Go Mexico City! was written by The Wiggles, John Field, and Dominic Lindsay, although none of them did. Likewise, Sicily (I Want To Go) mistakenly credits Dominic Lindsay.
- The 2007 DVD from Warner Home Video retains the HIT Entertainment logo at the end. Yummy Yummy is the only other one to share this mistake.
- The original US DVD back cover estimates the running time as 116 Minutes including bonus features. While this is not a mistake, that run time is carried over on the Warner Home Video re-release in the US, as well as all Australian DVDs without noting the inclusion of bonus features in that estimate, thus making it seem like the video itself is 116 minutes.
