The Wiggles were an Australian children's band.
Fictional Background Edit
The Wiggles' early history is somewhat of a mystery of how they all got together , but one thing's for sure is that they've been singing and dancing since they were children and have been living in their world, "Wiggles World," for the longest time. The members of the band are Greg Wiggle, Anthony Wiggle, Murray Wiggle, and Jeff Wiggle.
Anthony and Jeff were members of The Cockroaches, an 80's pub band that had a number of top 40 hits in Australia. At Macquarie University in Sydney, they connected with Murray and Greg to produce programs for an Early Childhood Education program at the school. Their kid-friendly songs were a quick hit in Australia in the early 90s, and international exposure made them more popular in the 2000s. Wiggles songs are often about simple topics that children can relate to: sleeping ("Rock A Bye Your Bear", "Wake Up Jeff"), eating ("Fruit Salad"), animals ("Do the Monkey", "Swim Like a Fish", "Ponies") or their friends who appeared with them in their home videos and TV show. They include Dorothy the Dinosaur (a horticulturalist green dinosaur who eats only roses), Captain Feathersword (a harmless pirate with a feather for a sword), Wags the Dog (a brown dog who likes eating and digging in his garden, and takes care of puppies called the Wagettes), Henry the Octopus (a fun loving purple octopus who wears multicolored clothing and conducts an underwater band) , and Officer Beaples (a female policewoman who communicates through mime). Another distinctive feature of the group's songs is easy-to-repeat gestures, such as the "romp bomp a chomp" hand motions in the song "Dorothy the Dinosaur".
Greg Wiggle, or simply just Greg, is the lead singer of the Wiggles who wears the yellow shirt and loves doing magic tricks. He was forced to retire from the group due to illness for a while and was replaced by his understudy Sam, who loves to sing.
Anthony Wiggle, or simply just Anthony, is the wiggle who wears the blue shirt and is the instrumentalist that loves eating food.
Murray Wiggle, or simply just Murray, is the wiggle who wears the red shirt that loves playing the guitar.
Jeff Wiggle, or simply just Jeff, is the wiggle who wears the purple shirt that always falls asleep every minute or so.
