On May 19th, 1999, the Australian children's group The Wiggles released a video about Dorothy the Dinosaur called The Dorothy the Dinosaur and Friends Video, as shown in the Toot Toot! video.[1] However, they released another video about the character five months later titled Dorothy the Dinosaur Goes to Hospital. The video centers around Dorothy going to the Sydney Children's Hospital due to her tail anesthetic. In the video, Dorothy was voiced Emma Pask rather than Carolyn Ferrie, as she sounds like Snow White from Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs during the 1996 version of Carols in the Domain.[2] The video was shorter than a typical Wiggles video, running for 11 minutes and 30 seconds. After it's October 25th release, it quickly faded into obscurity and no one in Australia knew anything about this video. But on July 19th, 2014, it was first discovered by Facebook user Tim Reimer. The following year, 2015, Tim sold the video on eBay and during the auction, American Wiggles fan Daniel Celano bid the video's pricing and finally won. Daniel ordered the video on eBay on October 3rd and later got it on October 6th. This video has now been found and viewable since November 7th, 2015. After the video's resurfacing, Anthony revealed in a since deleted Instagram story that the video will be uploaded as part of the group's Unreleased NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN Specials series on their YouTube channel.[3]
