Hoop-Dee-Doo it's a Wiggly Party is the tenth video (named after the album of the same name) by the Australian children's group The Wiggles. It was released on June 19, 2001 about 28 days after the album's release on May 22nd to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the group's formation in 1991. A tour (named "Wiggly Party: Live in Concert") would commence six months later to promote the video and album.

The tour commenced on December 4th, 2001 at the Perth Entertainment Centre and would end on December 23, 2001 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre [1]with the group performing at Australia's famed Carols In The Domain on December 22nd.[2] The tour would be known for several things, like the it being the second tour to have two acts, the big red car gets a modification and the debut of several songs like Hoop Dee Doo, Dorothy (Queen Of The Roses), Do The Owl, Play Your Guitar With Murray, Marie's Wedding, Doing A Dance, Caveland, Old Man Emu, Move Like An Emu and Dance the Ooby Doo (With Dorothy the Dinosaur) and the only time where In The Big Red Car We Like To Ride would be performed as the opener in place of the well-known Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Car.

The performance at the Vodafone Arena in Melbourne, Victoria (either December 11 or 12) would be filmed and two songs from the concert, the aforementioned Dorothy (Queen Of The Roses) and Do The Owl (both without the original audio) would be seen in the group's twelfth video Wiggly Safari that would be released in July 2002. Various amateur clips from the performance would be used in the 2006 documentary "The Wiggles Take on the World"[3], mainly from In The Big Red Car We Like To Ride, Hoop Dee Doo, We're Dancing With Wags The Dog, Play Your Guitar With Murray and The Wiggle Owl Medley. Though it's unlikely the group may still have the amateur filmed clips from the documentary, it does reveal what was performed at the concert.

While the setlist from the tour is widely known as the program from the tour surfaced online in May 2021, some of the songs from the concert like Here Come The Wiggles & We're Dancing With Wags The Dog are nowhere to be found in the program, meaning the setlist in the program maybe from a different show on the tour.[4] Photos from the tour that were shown off in various Wiggles media, show the presence of some of the songs found in the program and available footage. In September 2021 it was revealed that the group's official Twitter account and Anthony Field liked a tweet dated November 6, 2020 requesting the release of footage from the tour, meaning the Melbourne concert could see a release in the future [5]. Until that happens, the full footage of the Vodafone Arena performance from the Wiggly Party: Live in Concert tour remains unseen by the public.
