Bluey (CBeebies)

My kids’ favourite show Bluey is starting on CBeebies on Monday. Thought I’d give other parents a heads up if they don’t already know it.

It’s an animated show about a family of Australian Blue Heeler dogs. Bandit, the dad, Chili, the mum, Bluey, the big sister and Bingo, the little sister. It follows them and their friends tackling everything from going to the supermarket, to the first day at school, to ADHD, to the death of a bird the family try to nurse.

I can’t speak highly enough about this show. It has perfectly balanced silliness with life lessons with (for want of a better word) family values, all with beautiful animation and amazing voice acting. It also has as much for adults as it does for kids. I genuinely love the Heeler family and could easily watch episodes on my own without the kids. There’s an episode in season two about the kids going to bed that gets me quite emotional and another about a handstand that builds the narrative in a smart loop.

It’s already got a season and a half on Disney plus and two full seasons on Aussie TV. Here are some clips.

Only became aware of Bluey about a month ago (via MsWzas access to Disney+ through her brother).

So happy it’s now on CBeebies. It really is superb.

Really looking forward to this but couldn’t get it on the iplayer the other day

It is the best tv show after the wire.

Really struggling to get the wording of this to work properly and can’t be bothered to do another rewrite.
