For three decades, the Wiggles have toured the world, delighting millions of fans. They were formed in 1991 when the founder, Anthony Field, had the idea to make a children’s album. Wiggles’ original training was Anthony Field, Murray Cook, Greg Page (both met in college), Jeff Fatt (another musician from The Cockroaches) and classical music composer Phillip Wilcher. A few years later, Sam Moran started “Wiggling” and the band continued to rock! In 2013, a whole new sound arrived with a current new lineup including Anthony Field (The Blue Wiggle), Emma Watkins (The Yellow Wiggle), Lachy Gillespie (The Purple Wiggle) and Simon Pryce (The Red Wiggle). The Wiggly Friends: Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog and Shirley Shawn the Unicorn complete the Wiggles family.
Best known for their iconic hits such as “Fruit Salad”, “Hot Potato”, “Rock-A-Bye Your Bear” and “Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car”, the Wiggles are a staple of pop culture and have had their songs referenced over the years in dozens of TV shows and movies. The Wiggles brand has adorned children’s products, from postage stamps to pajamas, theme park rides and more. In 2003, they broke the Madison Square Garden sold-out record when their 12 sold-out concerts broke Bruce Springsteen’s record by two!
Wiggles TV programming was previously available on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, HIT and several other international networks, but never before has there been a fully dedicated Wiggles TV channel. With thousands of hours of original content that have delighted young children and parents for decades, The Wiggles Channel will deliver quality, educational and entertaining content that Loop Media says will appeal to audiences around the world.
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing The Original Wiggles since the 1990s, when I worked at Disney and helped bring them across Asia and into the US market,” said Jon Niermann, CEO and co-founder of Loop Media. “Having the opportunity to launch their first branded channel with Loop Media is a meeting we’re very excited about. My children and so many others have been so positively entertained and influenced by their music growing up; we look forward to making their incredible library of content easily accessible to new and old fans.
With their unique blend of wonderful songs, engaging live performances, and constant, prolific creativity, the Wiggles have made a resounding mark on the world stage. During a 30-year musical adventure that took them across the world, they harnessed this energy to educate and help children better understand the world they live in. The band, the songs and even the experiences have changed along the way, but the goal has never been: children are their inspiration, education their goal and music is their path.
“Marking our 30th anniversary with the launch of our first Wiggles TV channel is something we are excited about,” said Anthony Field, Founder of Wiggles and Blue Wiggle. “We have generations of fans who now get to see their favorite Original Wiggles videos. Working again with Jon and his team at Loop Media to make this happen is a great time for us to get the world ready for Wiggle! ”
The Wiggles TV channel will be available this summer on the best streaming services in the world.
