"Phillip" was the fifth wiggle, before they had their colored shirts. He wrote and provided the keys for most of the songs on the Wiggles' debut album. He is the only Wiggle to not appear in a video, except for the original music videos of Get Ready to Wiggle and Dorothy the Dinosaur. He has not made a appearance in any part of the Wiggles franchise since 1992. He was the very first member ever to be retired. According to Phillip Wilcher, the reason why he left is because he wasn't comfortable performing with them. He is also the only original Wiggle who does not appear in a movie, or TV series, or wears a specific colored shirt.
