Anthony is the Blue Wiggle and the founding member of The Wiggles. Out of all The Wiggles, he's the only one who's stayed for all 25+ years they've been around. As such, the new Wiggles sometimes refer to Anthony as a 'wise senior Wiggle' and he often calls them 'young' in return.
Anthony is well known for being the Wiggle who's always hungry, and is also known for playing multiple instruments in the band such as the drums, trumpet, guitar, bagpipes, violin, tin whistle, kazoo and more recently; the banjo. The drums were Anthony's main instrument for a while but once the new generation came around, he became the main guitarist, but still plays the drums on occasion.
In 1992, when the Wiggles first got their skivvies, Anthony was the Green Wiggle, although his shirt in Here Comes A Song is either light blue or aqua. He wore a short sleeved shirt. He wore green possibly due to his Irish heritage. From 1996 onward, he became blue because Dorothy was already green.
He plays the guitar a lot now, instead of dancing but there are still songs like Do the Propeller!, Hot Potato, and Can You (Point Your Fingers and Do the Twist?) where he doesn't play the guitar nor any other instruments.
Due to his limited vocal range, he is the only Wiggle of the current generation who doesn't sing. He does sing a verse or two in songs like I've Got My Glasses On! and Do the Skeleton Skat but other than that, he never sings lead.
- He is the oldest and only wiggle of the current generation who has been in all the videos.
- He has never missed a tour except for a few times.
- In the early TV Series, he has a room, but it recent TV Series it was removed for unknown reasons.

- In recent videos, Anthony is often seen barefooted as it is more comfortable for him. This was acknowledged in the Rubber Boots song and in Taking Off!.

- In 1992, when the Wiggles first got their skivvies, Anthony originally wore a green short-sleeved shirt. In 1996, he decided to change to blue, since green became associated with Dorothy.
- He eats eggs, sausages, potatoes, and buttered toast for breakfast.
- In Manners, Dorothy mentions that he likes to eat brussel sprouts.
- According to a recent interview with Jeff Fatt, Anthony originally did the sleeping gag, but later passed it onto Jeff because they both felt the gag suited him more.
