When Greg, the Yellow Wiggle ‘retired’ due to illness not long ago I was sure that no one could ever take his place. I was sure that this house’s love for the Wiggles, while not at obsession level it was still quite strong. would dwindle without our beloved Greg. It just wouldn’t be The Wiggles without Greg…
This morning before we rushed off to kinder we watched the beginning of ‘Wiggle… and Learn’ (sing a long with me now in your best deep Anthony voice,.. “let’s have some, let’s have some, let”s have some fun!) and as all four of us sat glued to the TV I realised that I like the new Yellow Wiggle… I like Sam… I do!
Sam can sing, I like his singing voice and style. He can dance too. He has a presence about him… I am not sure what sort of presence but I must admit I do enjoy watching him. It’s a pity about the really daggy hair cut, but his sweet face and goofy smile make up for that to some extent.
So there you have it… I was wrong… There can be a new Yellow Wiggle, just as good (well almost) as Greg. Go Sam go…. you loved almost as much as Murray in this house now!
