Release date

Toot Toot! was first released on 17 October 1998.

In 1999, the Wiggles re-released the video, but made significant edits to reflect changes made in the television series. Although the general story is still about The Wiggles having to find a way to fix their Big Red Car, the songs were re-recorded and the scenes were redone with new animations and backgrounds. "Bathtime" and its introduction were replaced with a new version of the "Henry's Underwater Big Band" video.

The video was dedicated to the memory of Anthony's father, John Patrick Field, who played John the cook on the original 1994 version of Yummy Yummy.

The 1999 version was released to DVD in 2004 in Australia. The extras include a Wiggly Work storybook and two episodes from the Lights, Camera, Action TV series.
