Jeff from The Wiggles

Jeff Fatt is the original Purple Wiggle from the Wiggles, a children’s music group hailing from New South Wales, Australia. They’ve achieved wide acclaim and multi-platinum status, with their music being played in preschools all over the world. Jeff is the original purple Wiggle who plays the piano and accordion and loves to fall asleep. He tends to fall asleep a lot, which causes the others to call out “WAKE UP JEFF!”, and that causes Jeff to jump up and down and do all sorts of silly things.

Steve from Blue’s Clues

Steve Burns was the host of the hit children’s show Blue’s Clues. He’d help audiences solve puzzles using clues left behind by Blue – though he sure had a hard time finding the clues. In each episode he wore the same outfit, making his green striped rugby shirt just as memorable as his blue spotted companion.

Pee-wee Herman

Played by Paul Reubens, Pee-wee Herman is a cheerful, child-like character who surrounds himself wacky gadgets and quirky neighbors. That’s not to say he doesn’t have a darker side — when he doesn’t get his way, he loses patience and drops devastating bombs like “I know you are but what am I?”

Bill Nye the Science Guy

Bill Nye the Science Guy was an educational TV show that taught scientific topics through a fun-filled, fast paced, and humorous way. The show did so well that it won 19 Emmy Awards during its run.

Bob Ross

Bob Ross is the lovable personality who brought the joy of painting to millions. On his public television show, he taught us how to use oil paints to create happy little clouds, happy little trees, and other happy little accidents. He often brought squirrels and other little rascals on the set.

Mister Rogers

Mister Rogers was our friendliest neighbor. He taught us something new everyday, but before he got started, he never failed to zip up his cardigan sweater and change into comfortable Keds while singing a song.
