Murray is the original red Wiggle and the original lead guitarist in The Wiggles, known as the "king of guitars". He was the red Wiggle for 21 years before being replaced by Simon Wiggle in 2013. He has since made cameos in some episodes of Ready, Steady, Wiggle! and still occasionally performs in the reunion concerts.

Character Information

He loves playing guitar, as he does off-screen, and is also considered the best musician of The Wiggles. Unlike the other three Wiggles, he only played guitar during his tenure (along with guitar-adjacent instruments, like the mandolin and ukulele), but he also played other instruments like the flute or the trombone on occasions. In some later videos, he played guitar in many songs rather than dancing. This happened starting with some of the late Sam videos and continued during the Celebration era. He plays guitar throughout the concerts except for a few select songs. He eats pancakes for breakfast, and his favourite food is bananas.

In the original generation, he was a backup singer, primarily known for his high pitched vocals along with Jeff. His well-known lead songs are Five Little Ducks and Starry Night.
