The video was remade and released in 1998 after the theatrical and video releases of The Wiggles Movie and the video release of Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas. Some of the skits such as the short story for Dorothy's Birthday Party were removed. Two new songs, "Pufferbillies" and "Havenu Shalom Alechem", were added. In the North American and UK versions, "Teddy Bear Hug" and "Numbers Rhumba" were replaced by videos featuring the Wiggle Puppets, which are actually from The Dorothy the Dinosaur and Friends Video. The Wiggles use logos on their shirts. Anthony wears a blue shirt instead of a green one. Paul Paddick plays Captain Feathersword. Wags the Dog was also featured in the video. Paul Hester, a former drummer for Split Enz and Crowded House, guest starred as Paul the Cook, and was featured in "Fruit Salad".
