** One that stands out is ''Monkey Man'', originally done by The Maytalls. The original version ''appears'' to be about a man telling someone (a girlfriend?) that he's heard rumors of her "hugging up the big monkey man" (implying cheating on the singer) although he can't confirm it. The Wiggles version, featuring KylieMinogue, is about... an actual Monkey Man.

It says something about the Wiggles importance within Australia that when the original yellow Wiggle, Greg Page, left the group, it made national headlines for weeks. The majority of Australians will know at least three of their songs and sing them unashamedly, an almost unique thing in the world when it comes to children's music. They'll also give you the trademark Wiggle finger pointing gesture unashamedly.

* {{Pun}}: A lot of the questions in 'Ready, Steady, Wiggle' do puns on the topic of the episodes. Example, after Simon turns into a duck when he drank Lachy's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Turn You Into A Duck Drink"]]. --> Will Simon ''duck'' out for another cup? --> Will the wiggles send Lachy the ''bill''? --> This is ''Quackers''!

** "Well, blow me down." (Captain Feathersword gets blown down and he screams, then gets back up again.) "I gotta stop saying that." "You gotta stop saying what?" "I gotta stop saying 'Blow me down'. Oh no!" (Cue being blown down and getting up again.)

* WestCoastTeam: Besides the [[FollowTheLeader imitators]], there were attempts to form overseas counterparts of the wildly popular group in Latin America and Asia. They didn't work, in part because much of the Wiggles' appeal outside the Anglosphere was as a tool for *learning English*.
