Release[edit]

Toot Toot! was first released on 17 October 1998.[3]

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 scenes and songs were re-recorded with new animations and backgrounds, mostly "John Bradlelum" and "Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car".[note 3] "Bathtime" and its introduction were replaced with a new version of the "Henry's Underwater Big Band" video (number 3 not number 7)

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

The 1999 version was released to DVD in 2004. The extras include a Wiggly Work storybook and two episodes from the Lights, Camera, Action TV series.[4]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Greg is the only Wiggle who participates in this song.
  2. ^ Halloran plays Zardo Zap in the "Zardo Zap" song, while Dawson plays Zardo Zap in the "Let's have a Ceili" song.
  3. ^ Some of the television series episodes retain the original 1998 versions of the videos. The 1998 version of "John Bradlelum" can be seen in episodes "Storytelling" and "Family". The 1998 version of "Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car" is also found on "Storytelling" and "Haircut".
