Opening - The opening is a slow-motion clip from "D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. (My Favourite Dinosaur)" where The Wiggles are dancing while Dorothy is walking across with her mower by pulling in the Yummy Yummy title out. While the intro plays, the intro to the song "Get Ready to Wiggle" plays.

The Wiggles introduce themselves and John the Cook. Murray asks what John has and he replies that he has some cold spaghetti. Anthony picks up some wiggly spaghetti with a spoon, shaking it. John also has mashed bananas; Greg picks up a bowl of bananas and mashes some with a fork. John also has hot potatoes. Murray picks up one potato but it's hot! He juggles it, passing it to Jeff, who passes it to Anthony, who passes it to Greg. Greg puts the potato back on the dish and says it's time to sing a song about hot potatoes, cold spaghetti, and mashed bananas. He says to watch out for Captain Feathersword in case he comes by and takes the food.

Greg remarks that Captain Feathersword sure was tricky, since he tries to take the food. Now we're going to do a song about shaking. First, let's get into our shaking clothes. 1, 2, 3. Greg snaps his fingers and The Wiggles are now wearing colourful sports jackets.

In the end, they have to get back in there Wiggle clothes. They count to 3 and Greg snaps his finger and they all got back into there Wiggle clothes.

The Wiggles are with kids and Henry the Octopus. Greg tells everyone that Henry the Octopus is here and he tells everyone again to say hi to Henry. They greet Henry, and Henry says "Hi, everybody" back. Murray asks what Henry is holding. Henry says that he is a teddy bear hugging his favourite teddy bear and he loves hugging his teddy bear. Murray suggests that let's all sing a song about teddy bears.

Anthony talks about Dorothy the Dinosaur while Jeff is tricking him to be wearing a Dorothy tail and hat.

Magic Greg does a magic trick from the box of mystery. For the music, Jeff plays the keyboard, Anthony plays a Fender bass guitar, and Murray plays an acoustic guitar.

Dorothy is dancing with Vanessa the dancer and she had her pink shoes on to do a song about doing a ballet dance.

The Wiggles and John the Cook are making crunchy munchy honey cakes. Captain Feathersword was helping as well.

Murray is playing a game with kids to show what number Murray is holding up.

Anthony is at the workshop room with three kids and they are making clay to mush and hammer.

After the song, Jeff dreamed that he was a monkey. And the Wiggles woke him up and then he started to act like a monkey.

Captain Feathersword was trying to dance like Henry when Murray and Greg tells him what's going on? But he told them that he forgot how to do it. So they asked Henry if he can teach Captain Feathersword to dance with the Wiggles.

And after when he danced, he took a bow and his pirate hat fell off and when he picked it up, his feathersword fell. After Greg thought of an idea, to put the hat back on his head by jumping into the air and it worked.

Greg tells everyone that there are different types of ways to move while the other Wiggles do the actions.

The Wiggles and the others watch a videotape on TV all about Dorothy's birthday party.

Dorothy's Birthday Party (Short Story)

The Wiggles and the others are falling asleep and Jeff tries to wake them up, Jeff said, "They always do this". But it doesn't matter. But it is always Jeff that falls asleep, isn't that right?

At the end of the video in the end credits, the "Fruit Salad" song plays as the closing music.

  • This is another Wiggles video that Wags the Dog doesn't appear because he wasn't around back then. He does appear in the next video Big Red Car.
  • At first in the video, Anthony wears a turquoise shirt. In "Henry's Dance", Anthony wears a white skivvy. When kids first saw him in the song with the white shirt back in the '90s, they had no reason why. The reason why he wore a white shirt over the chroma key is, if he stands in front of it with a green shirt of one of those colours, it will turn invisible underneath the chroma key screen. Another thing in this song is that white outlines are seen around the Wiggles, including Murray.
  • This was the first video to have a chroma key in the background of a song (Henry's Dance).
  • This is the first video that they have a helper for Anthony to play as Captain Feathersword.
  • This is another video that shows Wiggly merchandise in the end credits.
  • This video won at the Australian Video Software Distributors awards ceremony.
  • In "Shaky Shaky", Anthony plays a Fender Telecaster electric guitar that is later played by Murray in Big Red Car. In "Greg's Magic Show: The Box of Mystery" and "I am a Dancer", he plays a Fender bass guitar which Murray plays in this video and Wiggle Time! (1993 video). Murray plays a Double Bass in the same song.

  • In some editions of this video, a rare promo for "Wake Up Jeff" is seen. It states that the video will be coming out in August 1996. HOWEVER, instead of the "Wake Up Jeff" video version we have come to know, a different version is seen. Instead of wearing skivvies, black pants and black shoes, The Wiggles are wearing short sleeves, t-shirts and coloured shoes - Anthony wears blue shoes, Jeff wears purple shoes etc. This is extremely rare.
