Phillip was the fifth wiggle before they had their coloured shirts. He wrote and provided the keys for most of the songs on the Wiggles' debut album. He is the only Wiggle to not appear in a video, except for the original music videos of Get Ready To Wiggle and Dorothy the Dinosaur. He has not made an appearance in any part of the Wiggles franchise since 1992. He was the very first member ever to leave the group. According to Phillip Wilcher, the reason why he's left because he wasn't comfortable performing with the other four Wiggles. Their spokesperson, Dianna O'Neill, claims that he submitted a letter of resignation because he wanted to continue composing classical music. He is also the only original Wiggle who does not appear in a movie, TV series, or wears a specific coloured shirt.
