Oh no, controversy in The Wiggles! The original yellow Wiggle, Greg, is returning and the current yellow Wiggle, Sam, has been asked to leave. It’s the stuff of funny headlines. But it’s also serious business. The Wiggles are enormously successful so any personnel changes have big financial implications.
I find The Wiggles fascinating in entrepreneurial terms. Three of the original members were training to be early childhood educators, and they were all in bands, and then they had the brilliant idea to combine their interests and form a band for small children. They created a whole industry and have earned millions in the 20 odd years since. It’s an impressive story.
