Adding to its growing library of kids content, Hulu has inked a SVOD deal with Australia’s ABC Commercial that will see season two of The Wiggles’ preschool series Ready, Steady, Wiggle make its US debut on Hulu.

The deal makes all 104 eps of the show available to the American SVOD’s subscribers. The moving and grooving show is the second preschool series to air exclusively on Hulu in the US. The other, Cyber Group Studios’ Zou series, debuted on Hulu earlier this year.

This latest deal also comes on the heels of Hulu’s exclusive SVOD acquisition of Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins.

As for the Wiggles, the Fab Four are experiencing a resurgence in Australia, with sold-out concert sales. According to ABC Commercial, after strong ratings for season one of Ready, Steady, Wiggle, ABC Kids TV rush-released the second season.

The new Wiggles band includes first-ever female Wiggle Emma (Yellow), Anthony (Blue), Simon (Red) and Lachy (Purple).

Along with releasing Ready, Steady, Wiggle season one, the group spent 2014 touring the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Dubai. On the home entertainment front, they released four new CDs and DVDs.
