The world’s most beloved blue heeler and his loveable family are set to take centre stage in an upcoming television special, that will explore the world of Bluey further than ever before. 

WATCH NOW: Here’s your first look at the 28 minute Bluey special. 

Announced at the annual ABC Upfronts event in November 2023, the episode will be 28 minutes long – almost four times the length of the standard Bluey episode, which averages at 7 minutes long.

The extra-long episode will be called ‘The Sign‘ and was commissioned after fans of the Aussie animation begged creator and writer Joe Brumm, and production house Ludo Studio to give them more Bluey – something both are thrilled to finally be able to deliver!
