Wiggles ~ The Wiggles - Dance Party
The Wiggles, that wacky outfit wowing kids from Down Under, welcome preschoolers for a lively, loopy musical fiesta on their sixth release, Dance Party. In addition to Murray, Greg, Jeff, and Anthony, Oz's answer to the Fab Four, chiming in on this 15-song charmer of a dance- and sing-along are the usual wiggly suspects--Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog, Captain Feathersword, and the remarkably light-on-her-feet hostess of the party, Dorothy the Dinosaur. Along with all the fancy footwork, expect the frenetic pace of all Wiggles offerings (nobody's attention span is apt to be challenged by a 15-segment, 40-minute video), but also expect a less polished production than in previous titles. The gang's unfamiliar hair styles and other telltale clues bear the trappings of an early performance. Which in no way dilutes the fun-for-all delirium. In fact, the goofier-than-ever gags and graceful child dance troupes featured on a couple of numbers here propel this tape into top-shelf Wiggles territory. Songs include "Can You Point Your Fingers and Do the Twist?," "Wags the Dog," "Five Little Joeys," "Di Dicki Do Dum," "I'm a Cow," "Do the Flap," "On Your Holiday," "Hat on My Head," "The Magic Bag," "Brown Girl in the Ring," "Georgia's Song," "Our Boat Is Rocking on the Sea," "Nicky Nacky Nocky Noo," "Dorothy's Dance Party," and "The Big Red Car." --Tammy La Gorce --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

We picked up this DVD before dropping the boys off at their Nana's house for a sleep over to make the seperation a bit easier for them. Before we said our good-byes I made sure to start up the disk to serve as a little distraction. Wifey and I actually had to stop and watch the first couple of songs, much to the chagrin of my mother-in-law.
The production values are much, much lower than on any of the later disks. The big red car that my little fellas love so much was a cardboard cut out carried by the fab four on to the stage, Anthony's costume changes several times throughout and includes; a green mock turtle-neck, a green polo shirt and he even took a shot at playing Captain Feathersword. (Two of his brothers also took turns portraying the role that Paul Paddick has now made his and his alone.)
Wifey and I finally left and were still talking about the disk an hour later on our way to dinner and a movie. As near as we can figure, this must have been footage shot as a pilot or maybe even a pitch to a studio prior to the boys getting their own show. Some one must have held on to it and now that The Wiggles have reached a high degree of stardom and recognition, instant cash for the studios.
I'm not complaining, mind you. The boys still bring this DVD over to one of us a couple of times a week to be played and they love the music and dances. Wifey and I even still get a kick out of the hair and shoestring budget sets and effects. Depending on your children though, you may want to think twice before picking up this particular Wiggley release.
My guys are very easy going and understanding about change. I have heard tell of kids out there who throw tantrums or (even worse) get sincerely upset and saddened by unexpected changes to things they love. If yours fall into either of those categories pick up Yummy Yummy or Magical Adventure instead.
It's the usual Wiggle mix of songs and dancing, perhaps a little more preachy than the later work, but it's not offensive, just reminders to buckle up your seatbelt, and to wear a hat when it's sunny. And after a while, I found myself enjoying it, because you can see how some ideas developed, and how some were discarded, thankfully.
The songs are catchy, the children are a major part of the fun, some of the songs are educational (at least a little), and they have great dance numbers too.
Boy did they need Paul Paddick (now Captain Feathersword) back then. The three early Captains just don't cut it (sorry Anthony)
Highly recommended for Wiggles fans, especially younger kids.
