Bluey – A Popular Plush in Australia

Bluey is an curious six year-old Blue Heeler dog, who loves to play.Bluey - A Popular Plush in Australia Bluey was renewed for a second series on TV in 2019, which is scheduled to premiere in March 2020.

Every day is an adventure with Bluey’s family and friends. Bluey’s character has a creative imagination whilst showing resilience in growing emotional, physical and mental strength. This cartoon character called Bluey was originally created in Queensland and the cartoon sets and scenes are from some great Aussie settings.

The hit Australian preschool show Bluey was been nominated for an International Emmy in the International Emmy Kids Awards in August 2019. A total of 28 nominated programs in seven categories from 15 countries were announced at the Mipcom television market, which is held annually in Cannes, France.

Bluey, which is produced by the Queensland production company Ludo Studio, was nominated in the preschool category, up against Germany’s Animanimals, Chile’s Petit and South Korea’s SuperWings Mission Teams.

“The geographic spread and diversity of topics addressed in this year’s nominated programs attest to the vibrancy and quality of children’s television throughout the world,” Bruce Paisner, the president and CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, said. The winners will be announced next March.

The Bluey TV series is also available through Disney channels in paid TV.

One of the best episodes of Bluey, in my opinion, was when Bluey and Bingo (Bluey’s sister) get their granny to learn the Flossing dance moves so Blueys sister could see that old people can dance. Flossing is featured in the 2017 video game Fortnite Battle Royale, developed and published by Epic Games, as a limited-time dance “emote” as a reward from the Battle Pass Season 2 that can be performed by the characters while playing. Flossing has become popular in schools due to the popularity of Fortnite and because of support from parents and administrators, as flossing can be seen as lacking the relative eroticism seen in other dance moves popular with young people. In 2018, flossing has been further popularized by this episode of Bluey.

Bluey lives with her father, Bandit; mother, Chilli; and younger sister, Bingo, who regularly joins Bluey on adventures as the pair embark on imaginative play together.

Dad is a stay at home dad who tackles the day to day issues that modern families can relate to. Bluey’s Mum (Chilli), works part-time as an airport security guard,and is the voice over local actor Melanie Zanetti (Tidelands, The Family LaBlueyw), who will star in L’Appartment for Queensland Theatre 2020.

In addition to all the excitement with this TV series, these lovable characters are coming to you live on stage in Australia in 2020.The favourite children’s’ show are now visiting more than 50 venues throughout Australia. The show follows the experiences of a this boundless six-year-old Blue Heeler little girl, who wants to design expand games and bring her family and the entire neighborhood into her universe of fun.

Bluey’s Big Play will captivate the audience of Australia’s preferred TV family show in a show on stage. It will be filled with fun loving, clever and somewhat brazen events. On stage Bluey’s family will, vows to be a magnificent event for youngsters and their adults.
