  • Dorothy is one of the most popular Wiggles characters, to the extent where she was given her own live tours and even her own TV series from 2007-2011.
  • She was the first Wiggles character to be created, being introduced in 1991 and first appearing in her self-titled song.
  • Murray Cook was inspired to create her because many of the kids he was teaching in his preschool class were interested in dinosaurs.
  • The song Dorothy's Birthday Party reveals the date of her birthday as November 3.
  • In An Irish Dinosaur Tale, it is revealed that she was born in Ireland, making her the second character in the franchise confirmed to have a non-Australian family background (after Jeff), and the first (and to date only) Wiggly Friend to have international heritage.
  • According to Yummy Yummy, her favorite color is pink.
  • As seen in her bedroom in many scenes and promo pictures of her TV series and others, she loves to sleep with teddy bears.
