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 generation 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.
In the original generation, Anthony was sort of a tertiary singer. But in the current generation 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 Scat! but other than that, he never sings lead.

- From 1992 to 1996, Anthony occasionally wore a green short-sleeved shirt.
- He eats eggs, sausages, potatoes, and buttered toast for breakfast.
- In Manners, Dorothy mentions that he likes to eat brussel sprouts.
- According to an 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.

- He didn't speak in Compliments of Brach's and The Wiggles.
