This article is about the Wiggly Mascot. For the song, see here.
Dorothy the Dinosaur is one of the Wiggly Friends. She is a "rosasaur" (a dinosaur who eats roses), coloured green with bright yellow spots. She is usually seen wearing a white, floppy hat with a red rose in it, as well as white gloves. Dorothy loves singing, dancing, eating roses and making rosy tea, and she lives in a pink and purple house with a large rose garden in her backyard.

- 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.
