Pop Go The Wiggles is the twenty-seventh album released by the Australian children's group The Wiggles. It was released on August 7th, 2007 and is the first album to exclusively have nursery rhymes (unlike their 1991 debut album which only included a mix of nursery rhymes and original material) and is the second release with Sam Moran as the yellow wiggle. The video of the same name was released on September 5, 2007 and songs from the video would be used in the group's sixth television series entitled "Wiggle And Learn" that would start airing a year later. However, according to original wiggle Greg Page, the video started production in early 2006.

While promoting the upcoming television series while he was still in the group, Page revealed in a April 2006 interview with Pop Entertainment that two videos were recorded for the series that was originally set to air in early 2007[1]. One of the videos recorded for the series was later revealed in 2012 to be Getting Strong as two music videos from the original version were released. The name of the second video is speculated to be Pop Go The Wiggles. Evidence for this conclusion comes from the inclusion of the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star during their 2006 North American tour "Wiggledancing: Live On Stage" and the appearance of the song Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush in the 2007 edition of the Racing To The Rainbow Tour programme. However no proof of the song being performed during 2007 has surfaced and another song from the video Mary Had A Little Lamb was performed in it's place. Since the group are known for planning ahead, it's likely the song was planned to be performed as the setlist may've been written when Greg was in the group. Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush would eventually be performed during their 2012 World Tour alongside Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with Greg in the group. One show during the tour in Scotland was recorded and released as the live album "Celebration!" later in 2012. The video also credits The Wiggles as executive producers[2] and the other videos released during Moran's time, Anthony Field, Murray Cook and Jeff Fatt were credited as executive producers[3][4][5].

Greg or any of the other members of The Wiggles haven't elaborated on what that second video was and unlike Getting Strong were visual proof like two music videos from the video and several production photos have surfaced to prove it's existence, no visual proof of this alleged original version of Pop Go The Wiggles has surfaced or confirmed to exist. It's unknown any other proof of the original version of the video will ever surface.
