Why It Rocks

  1. The art style is adorable and well drawn.
  2. The animation is very fluid and well-made, and also focuses on the backgrounds rather than just the maun focus.
  3. It follows the slice-of-life formula by relatable characters and situations, such as going to school and trying new things.
  4. Great, heartwarming and memorable soundtrack & music score by Joff Bush.
  5. Depicts play time in a positive light.
  6. There are amazing morals in each episode, which include:
    • "The Magic Xylophone", which teaches kids that they should take turns.
    • "Daddy Robot" has a good moral about you should tidy up rather than letting your parents do all the work.
    • "Bike", which teaches kids to learn how to take risks, never give up, and overcome any obstacle on their way.
    • "Takeaway", which has a deep moral that you should savour your childhood whilst you can because one day you won't be a kid anymore.
    • "Yoga Ball", which teaches kids that they shouldn't play rough with anyone.
    • "Wagon Ride" had a good moral about you shouldn't disturb everyone when they're trying and wait until they stop talking.
    • "Grannies", which teaches kids that they can learn how to do things they don't know yet, like dancing.
    • "The Sleepover", which teaches kids that sleep is important.
    • "Camping", which teaches kids that special people come into our lives, stay a bit, then leave.
    • "Hairdressers", which teaches us that we shouldn't talk over people, and instead wait for the person to finish their sentence/word.
    • "Stumpfest", which has a good moral that you shouldn't disturb anyone when they playing.
    • "Grandad", which teaches us that you need to be big and strong, and rest if you need to.
    • "Seesaw", which has a good moral that even if you're small, you can still have a big impact.
    • "Library", which has a moral that you should be quiet in quiet places like a library, and that when someone calls you "special", you don't take it too literal.
    • "Barky Boats", which teaches kids about what being 12 years old is like.
    • "Circus", which has a good moral that you shouldn't bully everyone else by forcing others to play the game you want to play.
    • "Muffin Cone" which has a good moral about you should break your old habits, especially annoying ones like sucking your thumb.
    • "Baby Race", which teaches us that not everything is a race, and that everyone is still learning new things.
  7. Catchy theme tune.
  8. It can teach non-Australian kids about Australian culture.
  9. Has a positive, relatable depiction of a kid with ADHD named Jack Russell in the second season.
  10. Cute and simple character designs.
  11. Nice and skillful voice acting.
  12. A lot of heartwarming episodes, such as "Barky Boats", "Sleepytime", "Baby Race", "Grandad" and "Camping".
  13. A lot of funny moments in there, such as in "The Sleepover", where Muffin gets all crazy and psychotic after skipping a sleep.
  14. It spawned good Christmas episodes like "Verandah Santa" and "Christmas Swim".
  15. It has many likable characters like Bluey, Bingo, Rusty, Muffin and especially Snickers, Socks, Winton and Pom Pom
  16. Some unlikable characters like Judo can redeem themselves.
  17. This show also encourages kids to use they imagination very well without hammering it down as much as possible.
  18. Not only the morals are good, But it's also used very well.
  19. Countless memorable quotes, such as "For real life?", "Oh... biscuits", "Wackadoo", "Morning, Wendy", "We can edit that bit out, right", "I'm the flamingo queen", "I want to suck my thumb!", "Oh boy, here comes the meltdown", "Hello doctor ladies, do you sell crutches?" and "My name is Bububabu".
  20. The relationship between some characters, such as with Bandit and Chilli, Captain and Mia and Radley and Frisky are cute and wholesome.
  21. There are also shorts for the show, and they're all amazing, such as "Lollipop Song" and "Jingle Bells".
  22. This show has even managed to spawn a good album that was released in 2021 and it was debuted at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart in February 2021.
  23. This is basically Peppa Pig done right when comes to kids shows about a family.
  24. There are also funny gags in the show, such as in Hairdressers, where the title card appears twice in the episode, the second time having "Hairdressers" scribbled out and replaced with "Nits", with Bluey saying "This episode of Bluey is now called 'Nits'".

Bad Qualities

  1. It can be somewhat boring or mean-spirited sometimes.
  2. There's some bad jokes and unfunny toilet humor here and there, like the one infamous scene in "Work".
  3. The voices of Bluey and Bingo can be annoying to hear at times for some people, especially if they scream or squeal.
  4. Some dated pop-culture references such as flossing and fidget spinners. In fact, they had an entire episode dedicated to flossing, making the episode a lot more dated than it needs to be.
  5. some characters like Bluey Heeler, can be a bit unlikable sometimes.
    • Judo also isn't any better, especially due to her bratty and bossy nature.
  6. While this show is still great and award-winning, it had 2 controversies
    • The description of Chilli (known as Mum) is so Inappropriate that it was changed it to make it more appropriate for the kids
    • Two of the episodes, Teasing and Flat Pack, was pulled from the ABC Kids iView and ABC iView apps due to racist stuff about aboriginals, then after that, They remove the racist stuff on these two episodes and laterly got re-released days and weeks later
  7. Bluey can be mistaken as a boy sometimes.

Reception

This is the best Disney show next to Phineas and Ferb, Milo Murphy's Law, 101 Dalmatian Street, and Counterfeit Cat.

I know many people have compared this show with Peppa Pig, and from what i've seen it's better than Peppa. The way it sets its humor is done well, and the characters aren't jerks to each other.

But still, it's no wonder why it's been called the Australian Peppa Pig.
