Let's go bananas!

"Sam" was the yellow wiggle from 2006-2012. In November 2006, Greg left The Wiggles after being diagnosed with Orthostatic Intolerance. Sam, Greg's understudy during times when Greg was feeling unwell, replaced him and was the yellow Wiggle for slightly more than five years before Greg re-gained his health and returned to his role as the yellow Wiggle. After Greg came back to the group, Sam left The Wiggles for good, but still continued to work with Children's music on his Nick Jr. Australia show, Play Along with Sam.

He played guitar, drums, and keyboards during his time with the group, making him one of the only Wiggles (along with Greg, Emma and Jeff) to have played all three of the other Wiggles' lead instruments. He also plays the trumpet.


  • He has an off-screen relationship with Lyn Moran.
  • Sam sings opera just like Simon Pryce and Paul Paddick
  • Older fans were more reluctant to accept him as a Wiggle, due to their attachment to Greg.
  • He was an understudy of Greg before he was officially a Wiggle having filled in for Greg in 2002 when Greg's mother inlaw died and in earlier 2006 when Greg began to experience health issues after a hernia operation in December 2005.
  • During Sam's time as the yellow wiggle, The Wiggles won Aria Awards for five years consecutively for Best Children's Album. .
  • At 6 foot 2 (1.88 m), he is the fourth tallest Wiggle out of all of 8 Wiggles that existed -tallest being Greg.
  • Sam was the second tallest Wiggle in the group of four during his time as the Yellow Wiggle. Murray was the tallest Wiggle during the Sam Moran era.
  • Only one of two Wiggles to have been kicked out (first being Phillip) and not resigned.
  • He does Magic like Greg in a cartoon.
