Vintage Wiggles: The Four Creepiest Minutes on Children's Television Ever

When the Wiggles were just starting out (about 15 years ago), they didn't have a huge budget for "lights, camera, action", and relied mostly upon puppet shows to entertain children with their music.

This vintage Wiggles video is one of their earliest productions. I showed this to my four and two year old kids, and they didn't find it freaky at all, but I about died by the time the Captain Feathersword puppet appeared.

Normally the Wiggles don't creep me out, I actually enjoy watching them. But this puppet show makes it look like they're tripping on acid.

I am absolutly sure that had they not made the wiggles human they would not be as popular today. That was freaky.....I think I am afraid of puppets.
