Created at Ludo Studio in Brisbane, the global phenomenon, which has captured the hearts of kids and adults across more than 60 countries, has been supported by Screen Queensland since its Season 1 debut in October 2018.

100% made in Queensland by the creative powerhouse at Brisbane-based Ludo Studio, Season 3 is currently in production with the first tranche of 52 episodes due to air next year.

Screen Queensland CEO Kylie Munnich said Bluey has taken the world by storm while amassing huge critical acclaim including recently being voted in Rolling Stone’s Top 100 Sitcoms of all time and receiving a Rockie at the Banff World Media Festival in June.

“Bluey has broken all the records for kids' animation as ABC iview’s most popular television show ever, not to mention winning an ACCTA award, a TV WEEK Logie and a prestigious international Emmy nomination, and we are incredible proud of the team at Ludo Studio and what they have achieved,” Ms Munnich said.

“What makes Bluey different though is how it manages to capture the sheer joy and wonder of being a kid and being a parent—and that focus on ‘real life’, the ups and the downs, is something truly special and unique.

“Led by showrunner Jo Brumm, executive producers Charlie Aspinwall and Daley Pearson, producer Sam Moor, Bluey has put Queensland on the map globally—from the creative decision to retain Australian accents through to the beautifully represented scenes from ordinary life in Brisbane—the birds, the trees, the Queenslander homes, even the CityCat!

“Screen Queensland is proud to continue its longstanding commitment to Bluey, and Ludo Studio, which has benefited from script development and travel and marketing support, through to production and post-production investment.”

Bluey is a Ludo Studio production for ABC Kids. Principal production investment from BBC Studios, in association Screen Australia. Post-production, digital and visual effects work undertaken in Queensland, Australia with funding from the Queensland Government through Screen Queensland and the Australian Government.
