The Wiggles is a 1998 TV series based on a successful children's band in Australia in the same name that premiered on the Seven & Prime Network in Australia.

Why These Series Can Wiggle

  1. Many of the songs in these series are great and decent, especially the theme song (Get Ready to Wiggle) and the closing theme (The Chase), even though they were taken from some albums, videos, and concert footages.
  2. The Wiggles themselves are likable characters like Greg (yellow), Murray (red), Jeff (purple), and Anthony (blue).
  3. The acting in most episodes is good and crystal clear.
  4. Many of the segments like Wigglehouse are very good.
  5. It has funny moments and good morals in some episodes.
  6. These series is not only faithful to the band, but also the 1997 film very well.
  7. Great supporting characters such as Wags the Dog, Henry the Octopus, Dorothy the Dinosaur and Captain Feathersword.

Bad Qualities

  1. The songs may be annoying for some people sometimes.
  2. Some episodes may recycle footage from other episodes.
  3. The CGI animation can be a little bit ugly to some people. This is especially when the CGI effects are in a low frame rate, looking like an old 3DO, Atari Jaguar, Sega Saturn, PS1 or a N64 video game.
  4. While not as severe as other shows, it somewhat went downhill ever since TV Series 3, due to the series' format being changed.

Trivia

  • In June 1997, the series was originally planned to be 26 episodes, but in the end, The Wiggles only filmed 13.
  • These series never aired on ABC Kids, unless it aired on Seven Network and Prime Network.
