Simon must be on the top of the world right now, as it was recently revealed The Wiggles have just signed a five year ABC global distribution contract.

Over 25 years, the group has experienced world-wide success, and the new multimillion-dollar deal includes both future releases and back-catalogue content, giving ABC the global rights to distribute the children’s entertainment group’s complete collection of hits across a range of different platforms, including CD, DVD, Video On Demand, mobile and more.

“ABC Commercial is pleased to extend our partnership with The Wiggles globally,” says Robert Patterson, Director of ABC Commercial in an official statement.

“The Wiggles are the world’s most revered children’s entertainment group, universally celebrated by kids and parents alike both here in Australia and abroad, their music synonymous with the ABC brand.

“By securing global distribution rights to their award-winning catalogue of content, I am confident ABC Commercial will continue to build on their immense track-record of international success.”
