This article is about the Wiggly Mascot. For the song, see here.

Henry the Octopus is a Wiggly Friend who debuted in 1992. He also likes to dance and spin around. He is the main protagonist and star of his own segment in the first series, and a major supporting character in the rest of the TV seasons and all of The Wiggles videos (except The Wiggles Go Bananas!, where he did not appear). His role has been more minor in subsequent videos/episodes.

Henry likes to sing and to dance with his eight legs. He is said to have a bubbly personality and loves a good joke.

According to Anthony in Everybody Clap! Everybody Sing!, Henry was named after The Cockroaches drummer Tony Henry.

He was introduced in 1992, appearing on the song Henry the Octopus from Here Comes a Song.

The way Henry works is that the performer inside can see through the mouth and his eyes. Plus, on top of his hat, there's a vent so the performer has some breathing space.
