 Wriggling Fingers is the sixth episode of the series. It first aired on September 13, 1999.


The Tweenies sing two of their favourite songs - Put Your Finger in the Air, and Tommy Thumb - and it sets them thinking about what they can do with their fingers. They use their hands to make shadow animals while they sing more of their favourite songs. Then they make puppets from gloves and bits and pieces from the messy area, and this leads to a black theatre puppet show narrated by the very able Bella.


  • This is the first episode to feature Surprise Time.
  • The very first surprise for Surprise Time is Bella's story of The Finger Caterpillar turning into a finger butterfly which Max made.
