The Wiggles have debuted Spanish-language programming entirely comprising a Spanish-speaking cast.

“Los Wiggles” will perform both classic Wiggles’ and original music infused into a series that features adventures, dancing, storytelling and “Los Wiggles’” friends – Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog and all the Wiggly Dancers.

All “Los Wiggles” programming will air exclusively on The Wiggles YouTube channel.

On July 6, the first ten-minute “Los Wiggles Play Time” episode debuted on The Wiggles YouTube channel. New Play Time episodes will air the first Tuesday of each month. The new “Los Wiggles Play Time” episodes will be augmented by episodes of the 2006 Latin American Wiggles series, a franchise developed for Latin America that has never aired elsewhere. All 26, 22-minute episodes will be available for the first time to the rest of the world as part of Los Wiggles programming on The Wiggles YouTube channel.

“There is a need for diversity in program content for children across the world,” says Anthony Field, Blue Wiggle and founding member, The Wiggles. “This was a natural first-step extension of The Wiggles that brings our core childhood education entertainment to Spanish-speaking children and families around the world. Children need to see and hear people that look and sound like them; ‘Los Wiggles’ delivers wonderful Spanish-speaking entertainment that feels and sounds authentic.”

Los Wiggles features a Spanish-speaking cast, including Zoe Velez (Blue Wiggle), Fernando Moguel (Yellow Wiggle), Katty Villafuerte (Purple Wiggle), Francisco Madrid (Red Wiggle) and Victor Valdes (Captain Feathersword).
