Bluey follows the adventures of ‘an adorable, timeless six-year-old Blue Heeler’ along with her family and friends.
The much-loved episode of ‘Sleepytime’ won the Children’s Emmy Award in 2019 and involved the characters Bingo and Floppy on an intergalactic adventure.
Debuting in 2018 on ABC, Bluey was soon praised for its refreshing characters – especially Bandit as a brilliant and shrewd father, as opposed to a background character often seen in the show program for children.
It also received rave reviews from critics as well as parents, who applauded its fine plot and scathing reviews of modern parenting.
The cartoon has become extremely popular in the US after it premiered on Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney+ in September 2019.
Last year, The New York Times described the performance as ‘Australia’s biggest export since The Wiggles’ – the country’s most popular children’s band.
