Best Jeff (The Wiggles) Costume Guide
Jeff Fatt is part of the Australian children’s music group, The Wiggles. He, along with another Wiggles member, Anthony Field, was a part of a popular 80s pop band, The Cockroaches. Jeff is one of the original members of The Wiggles and plays both the piano and accordion. He is known as the purple Wiggle and happens to be the oldest among the members of the group. Phillip Wilcher, Murray Cook, Greg Page, and Jeff Fatt started their Wiggles career by performing for a dozen children in a daycare facility in Randwick in New South Wales. Since then, they have become a cultural phenomenon. Though Jeff is still involved in the production for the group, he no longer performs.

Jeff (The Wiggles) Cosplay Costumes
Jeff wore purple for his 21-year stint performing in The Wiggles. According to Jeff, it took him 12 months to “learn the language of preschool,” as he describes it. His lack of knowledge in early childhood education made him hesitant to create a children’s album. But, it was Jeff who started favorites like “Henry the Octopus,” one of the Wiggles’ characters. He also lends his voice to the role of Wags the Dog. He later admitted that his first performance as a Wiggle was a traumatic experience because he wasn’t used to being around kids. He is known for falling asleep at odd times. His tendency to fall asleep is why one of the Wiggles songs is titled “Wake Up, Jeff!” which also became a Wiggles catchphrase.

In 2006, Fatt and the other original members of The Wiggles received honorary doctorates from the Australian Catholic University. In 2009, they received additional honorary degrees from Macquarie University. Then, a year later, Jeff and the three original Wiggles became a Member of the Order of Australia “for service to the arts, particularly children’s entertainment, and to the community as a benefactor and supporter of a range of charities.” It was in 2012 that he, along with Greg Page and Murray Cook, retired from touring with the group. Jeff was replaced by Lachlan Gillespie. The three retired members continue to stay actively involved with creative and production oversight.
