Bluey to commemorate five years on air with a ‘festival’ celebrating the popular children’s series
Popular animated children’s show Bluey is celebrating five years on air this month.
Since its debut on the ABC in 2018, the adorable Blue Heeler puppy and her family have garnered a worldwide fan base, with broadcasts on international networks like Disney and CBeebies.
Effortlessly incorporating phrases such as ‘keepy uppy, ‘tactical wees,’ and ‘duck cakes’ into the global vocabulary, the show has not only become a beloved children’s favourite but also a pop culture phenomenon.
To celebrate the significant milestone, ABC is going all out.
Beginning on Monday, October 23rd, the network will unveil Bluey Fest.
