By June of that year, the popularity of the clips prompted the Disney Channel to add both seasons of "The Wiggles" series to their schedule and showed full episodes multiple times per day. The network called them "the most successful property that the ABC has represented in the pre-school genre".
Greg Page, Jeff Fatt, Murray Cook, and Anthony Field Despite their success, founding member Anthony Field almost left the group inshortly after his marriage and the birth of his first child, due to his serious medical issues, which were worsened by The Wiggles' demanding tour schedule. After meeting chiropractor James Stoxen in Chicago, Field improved his health to the point that he was able to continue. He began to hire teams of chiropractors for himself, his fellow bandmembers, and castmembers in every city they performed, which he credited with making it possible for them to fulfill their touring requirements.
He withdrew from The Wiggles' US tour in Augustafter suffering fainting spells, lethargy, nausea, and loss of balance. He returned to Australia, where doctors diagnosed his condition as orthostatic intolerancea chronic but not life-threatening condition. Initially, The Wiggles struggled over their decision to replace Page, but after their audience's positive response to Moran, they decided to continue as a group because they thought that was what their young audience would want.
He missed the group's US tour as a result, after not missing a show in 20 years. Royalties partially offset the difference between their and revenues. Their managing director Mike Conway called their toughest year financially. For the first time, they had negative equitywith more liabilities than assets, and the owners had to provide the funds for them to continue operations.
Conway stated that their losses were due to less touring time in the US, difficulties in placing their DVDs in Walmartand their required investment in a new digital platform. He returned as an employee "exactly on the same level as Sam", rather than a co-owner, having relinquished his business interest in the group after he left in Paul Field agreed, stating that they "could have handled the communication and management of the transition better".
According to Paul Field, his brother staying in the band "was a vital decision to placate American, British and Canadian business partners". Page, who was still struggling with his health issues and had stated that his interest was in working with the group's original line-up, was subsequently asked to extend his stay until the end of the year so he would leave alongside Cook and Fatt, to which he agreed.
Cook became the group's road manager in mid Pryce reported that since The Wiggles' audience changed every few years, the transition to the new group was easier for their young audience than it was for their parents.

One of their challenges, especially for their early tours, was learning The Wiggles' catalogue of songs. Watkins, who had a film-making degree, played an important role in its production. Merchandise featuring the original group outsold the new group's products, and they failed to sell-out their concerts. Field reported that the new group went through the same process as the original group in terms of audience acceptance and "benchmarks of success".
Some of the backing music is pre-recorded and replayed on mini disc as this frees The Wiggles to sing and do their dances. It is more interesting for a child to watch actions and movements rather than a guitar solo as good as it might be. However, this musical backing is augmented by Anthony often playing his acoustic guitar, Lachy playing his keyboard or Emma playing the drums. There are many times such as the Captain's magic buttons segment of the show when the music is totally live.
