Product Description


G'day from the Australia Zoo, where the Wiggles get wild with Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. It's a Wiggly Safari: 55 jaw-snappin', kookaburra-hootin', dolphin-splashin' minutes of grand adventure. A big ham himself, Irwin meshes naturally with the tuneful quartet as they sing, dance, and share factual tidbits about cockatoos, crocodiles, emus, and more. Colors pop off the screen as Dorothy, Captain Feathersword, and little dancers cavort through the zoo. Packed with 16 snappy tunes, this particular Wiggles collection revs up the tempo from earlier titles like Wiggle Time and Toot! Toot! Could this lush outdoor setting, where songs like "Dingo Tango" and "Cocky Want a Cracker" sizzle in the sunshine, be responsible for inspiring this ultra-imaginative play list? Or perhaps Irwin's invigorating presence stimulated the fresh, lively feel of this exceptional show. Regardless, Wiggles fans from ages 1 to 8 will surely delight in this musical tour of the Australia Zoo. --Liane Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Wiggly Safari Feb. 3 2010
Once again Wiggly success in the eyes of my daughter! And a particularly nice video for the adults in the house who are so fond of Steve Irwin. Educational, fun, and nostalgic

4.0 out of 5 stars great Wiggle adventure July 13 2009
This DVD is one of their better ones for sure! My daughter absolutely loves it. The combo of the Wiggles and the Irwin Family/Australia Zoo is good entertainment. A must have for Wiggles fans:)

5.0 out of 5 stars our favourite Wiggles video so far March 20 2007
By frodo
It's kind of poignant watching "Wiggly Safari" now that Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin has died--his enthusiasm and love of the animals will surely be missed. That being said, this is a great Wiggles dvd. The songs are particularly excellent, from the 70's disco number "Do the Owl", to the Spanish-flavoured "Little Dingo", to the bouncy twang of "Old Man Emu" to the quiet koala lullaby song. It's also lots of fun learning facts about the animals, though the omission of the kangaroo is a bit surprising! (What animal is more associated with Australia than that?) What we enjoy most about this dvd is the infectious joy and fun that everyone, from the Wiggles themselves to the smallest child dancer, seems to be having. The outtakes and bloopers at the end are also funny to watch.

One problem is that you can't ff past the previews at the beginning of the dvd--and they are 10-15 mins long! But the content of the dvd itself is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A big hit with our little Wiggles fan... June 8 2004
By A Customer
This is our fourth Wiggles movie; my 19 month old daughter is a huge fan. I admit, I bought this one for ME as well as her, as I am a huge Steve Irwin fan! The DVD has run at least 7 times in the 18 hours since it arrived on our doorstep. She is mesmerized! I liked the songs, and the animals, and the people. It's just a great video.
Another reviewer mentioned mandatory previews. I didn't find that to be the case. I simply hit the "skip" button on my DVD player until the menu screen popped up. Took about 5 seconds...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie but with mandatory previews May 11 2004
By Z-mom
My two-year-old daughter and I adore the Wiggles and I think this is their best movie. My daughter dances, sings, and laughs throughout the film, and then she asks to see it again. It is refreshing to see the Wiggles outside at the Australia Zoo, rather than on an indoor set. The animals are interesting and the skits are entertaining. The songs are catchy and don't stick in your head to drive you crazy the way some kids' songs can. The one problem with the video has nothing to do with the Wiggles-- it is those mandatory previews. The fast forward function has been disabled, so every time my daughter wants to watch it, she has to wait through 6 minutes of previews for other Hit Entertainment productions. However, the Wiggles are always worth the wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Second best Wiggles video so far BUT...... May 10 2004
The best Wiggles video we own is the Hoop-de-do Party.
This one is the second best.
The Wiggles team up w/ Steve Irwin aka The Crocodile Hunter to spotlight animals native to Australia. Unfortunatley, they spend more time on themselves and the dancers rather than the animals. During the song about the emus, not ONE REAL EMU was shown. Nor were any owls shown during that song - they showed concert footage. There were no kangaroos, and only a few crocodiles (When Steve Irwin is introduced at the beginning, he says to Murray, "My crocodiles would love a good seranade"...OK so where are the crocodiles, mate?)
I wish the creative team would spotlight The Wiggles less (yes I know its their video)and the animals more. It would have been a great intro to Austrailian wildlife turns out only to be so-so.
On the other hand, this video has more life than most Wiggle videos. It happens to be my daughter's favorite..and i have to admit mine too.
So Wiggle on...

5.0 out of 5 stars THE WIGGLES ARE THE BEST !!!!!!!! April 3 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I think all of the wiggles videos are the best. i can not pick just one, my daughter and i just love them. but this video is full of great music and funny funny skits with the whole gang. the children love them because the wiggles know how to interact with our children. and thats why they are loved so much by our children. so lets not pick and choose cause we do not like it lets let our children love them cause they do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Safari!~~ Feb. 17 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This is what I would call a very intriging video. I mean you have the Croc Hunter rolling all over the place trying to protect his goodies. Well, the Wiggles happily sing and dance all over the place. I do warn that Captain Feathersword i sgetting pretty annoying. It seems he has to be included everywhere in this thing. But, over all this thing is awesome!
