She also loves eating roses, and making rosy tea. She lives in a pink and purple house with her own Rosy Orchestra and a rose garden in her backyard. She loves to eat roses and dance the ballet. According to Yummy Yummy, her favourite colour is pink. She was the first Wiggles character to be presented out of the 4 characters. She was introduced in 1991, first appearing on the song Dorothy the Dinosaur, the third song made by The Wiggles. Murray Cook was inspired to create her because many of the kids he was teaching in his preschool class liked dinosaurs. Murray was also the first to voice Dorothy, according to Everybody Clap! Everybody Sing!. The song Dorothy's Birthday Party reveals the date of her birthday as November 3. Her catchphrase also inspired a song/dance in 1996. She is one of The Wiggles' most popular characters. In fact, she's so popular, she was given her own TV series.
