A wildly popular Australian musical group that targets toddlers, fashioned after The Monkees
and H.R. Pufnstuff
. The characters are played by attractive middle-aged men, which also appeals to the mothers of the toddlers. Often assumed as gay by those outside their target audience (the fact that their target audience is of an age that doesn't comprehend sexual orientation makes the issue irrelevant; however four of them are married with children - yet another facet that makes them attractive to moms).
Greg and Anthony Wiggle never go out into the audience during a Wiggles concert because they might cause a stampede of horny moms.
Although their songs have names such as "Rock-A-Bye Your Bear," and "Can You Point Your Fingers And Do The Twist," The Wiggles have produced some of the best contemporary pop music.
