Bluey, an Australian children’s television show, will be screened in Vietnam’s four major cities of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Danang, and Cantho in June and July.

Bluey is an Australian preschool animated television series premiered on ABC Kids in October 2018.

The program is part of the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Australia and Vietnam in 2023.

Bluey is an animated series about a family of Australian Blue Heeler dogs, produced by Brisbane-based Ludo Studio for ABC Kids and co-commissioned by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios.

The show follows Bluey, an anthropomorphic six-year-old Blue Heeler puppy characterized by her abundance of energy, imagination, and curiosity about the world. The young dog lives with her father Bandit, mother Chilli, and younger sister Bingo, who regularly join Bluey on adventures as they engage in imaginative play.

The program features other characters, each representing a different breed of dog, and its overarching themes include a focus on family, growing up, and Australian culture. Inspired by the state capital Brisbane, where it is produced, the show captures the charm of Queensland.

A poster of the program was provided by the Australian Embassy in Vietnam.

Animation is widely recognized in Australia for its humor and its ability to address topics such as family dynamics and growing up in a subtle manner.

Bluey won an International Emmy Kids Award, which recognizes the world’s best content for young viewers, in 2020. The series is now airing globally across Disney channels and platforms in the US, the UK, China, New Zealand, South Africa, and Kenya.

In Vietnam, three episodes of Bluey – “Magic Xylophone,” “Grannies,” and “The Beach” – totaling 21 minutes of runtime, will be shown at IDECAF (Ho Chi Minh City) and CGV cinemas (Hanoi, Danang, and Cantho).

The animation will be screened on June 29 in Hanoi and on June 25, 26, and 27 in Ho Chi Minh City.
