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 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. She lives in a pink and purple house with a large rose garden in her backyard.

The way Dorothy works is that the performer inside can see through the pupils of Dorothy. Plus, on top of her hat, there's a vent so the performer can have some breathing space.
