I discovered this incredible show across the weekend and it took me less than 24 hours to have binged the whole lot of available episodes.
I’m not the only one who loves it either! In fact, since premiering in October 2018, Bluey has become the most downloaded and watched program on ABC iView, beating out The Wiggles AND Peppa Pig! People are already demanding merch and their complaints line has been flooded with compliments from viewers!
It all started when I saw a post on Facebook from someone who I studied at University with – while I did Graphic Design, he had branched out into Illustration. Years later he now has a job doing background art for this short TV animation, so when he shared an article about it, I thought I would give it a go.
Not even a minute after the opening credits I was hooked and trying not to laugh too hard as my 8-month-old napped on me on a Saturday morning. I instantly messaged my wife at work letting her know he too had to watch this and went on to watch 6 more episodes before she got home (and was happy to watch them again with her).
Bluey follows the simple, yet complicated family life of a 6-year-old Blue Healer, who with her 4-year-old sister (Bingo), Dad and Mum play plenty of games and turns everyday life into incredible adventures.
Ridiculously relatable for parents and a nostalgic, Aussie setting make this charming 7-minute cartoon an absolute delight!
There are currently 26 episodes of 52 released on iView and I already need more!
