  • According to the trailer, this video was supposed to have a VHS release in North America, but it was cancelled.
  • "Blow Me Down" was likely originally to be seen after the skit where Captain goes water-skiing around the Sydney Harbour, as it did in a TV episode with that same skit, but it was cut for unknown reasons (most likely time).
  • Most of the songs and skits from this video can be seen in The Wiggles Show! (TV Series), with two exceptions.
  • The skit where Greg wants to sing everything appeared in The Wiggles Show! Series 4 episode Wiggly Friends.
  • "Little Brown Ant" makes its video debut after first appearing in Here Comes a Song 14 years earlier.
  • This is the first Wiggles Video to feature a music video for "Do The Owl" that was not a live performance and to cut Steve and Terri Irwin's speaking parts.
  • Although the cover says "14 Wiggly Giggly Tunes", there are actually 19 songs total (not counting songs performed live during the Wigglehouse and Sailing Around the World segments).
  • This video marks the last time the Red Starry keyboard has sparkle stars and the first time their yellow.
  • This is the only time Greg sang Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. He sang it again on his YouTube channel.
