Bluey Wins Emmy Award And Crowned Best TV Show In The World For Young Kids

Bluey, the kids TV show about a blue heeler dog and his family, has won an International Emmy Kids Award.

The programme was the only Australian entry in its category and managed to take home the gong for best preschool TV show.

The awards ceremony was meant to be held in Cannes, France yesterday, however the event had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus. Thankfully though, the winners were still announced.

Set in Brisbane, the show follows a six-year-old Blue Heeler puppy named Bluey, who lives with her father, Bandit; mother, Chilli; and younger sister, Bingo.

Bluey is made by Ludo Studios, with co-founder Daley Pearson over the moon about the win.

"We're so proud of (creator) Joe Brumm and the whole gang of beautiful artists at Ludo," he said.

"They've created a beautiful show celebrating one of the most important things: imagination and game play.

"Bluey's created a special connection to people around the world and it's a real privilege to be creating the show under one roof in Brisbane with our friends.

"It's also been a secret dream of ours to create a bit of an industry in Brisbane that competes with the world.

"We've spent the last few years laying the first bricks down with Screen Australia, Screen Queensland, the ABC and BBC Studios and we're excited to see what's next together."
