What type of dog is Lucky’s dad? The Ultimate Guide

Wackadoo, there are dogs hiding everywhere

4 – Dance Mode features a celeb appearance from the Blue Wiggle Anthony Field. But there’s another voice that you may not have picked: Australian-British actor Rupert Degas, who plays the role of the yes/no button. He was the voice of ‘Scrambler’ in Bob the Builder from 2002 to 2011. He’s also been in Thomas & Friends and The Adventures of Blinky Bill.

5 – There is a long sausage-type dog called long dog hidden in many episodes. In Charades, it’s hidden in the knitting on the couch. Long dog was designed by one of the background artists in series one, and the pup also turns up in some of the books.

6 – Brisbane landmarks as Queen Street Mall and Southbank – and not so recognisable places such as toilet blocks and shopfronts – feature in several episodes. In Piggyback, the Heelers take a trip up the Queensland coast where Noosa’s Big Pelican makes a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance.

7 – In season two, Bingo’s car seat has changed. In season one, she was in a lap-sash seat and Bluey creators received feedback from fans saying she wasn’t big enough for that, so now she’s in a four-point harness seat.

8 – In Hammerbarn, Chilli is humming the Bluey theme song as she wanders through the garden centre. In fact whenever you hear Mum or Dad humming, its always the theme tune.

9 – In Dance Mode, at the top of the Busker’s hat, there is a five dollar note with a tooth fairy sticker still on it from the episode Markets. Its actually the same Busker from that episode and voiced by the shows Brisbane based composer, Joff Bush. For real life.

10 – If you look closely, there’s a mystery dog in the family portrait behind Nana’s couch in Charades. There’s Nana, Bob, Bandit, brother Stripe and their families. Fans are hedging their bets that Bandit has another brother we haven’t met yet.

11 – Bluey attends a school that focuses on the importance of play. Joe Brumm has spoken of how important play has been to his own childrens development, so there is a chance that this has been an inspiration for Bluey’s school.

12 – One of our favourite characters, Lucky’s dad, actually has a name. It’s Pat!

13 -Do the characters age? Well, they sort of do. Bluey’s friend Chloe has her seventh birthday in Featherwand, but the birthday party was more for story purposes. Fans have also noticed the voices of Bluey and Bingo – whose identities are kept confidential but are rumoured to be children of the production team – are sounding older since season one. However the creators arent intentionally ageing up the characters, the intention is for them to stay the same age.

14 – Joe Brumm writes most of the episodes and much of it is drawn from his own childhood and raising his children – right down to Bandit not having time to play touch footy with his mates. Now that his children are older, Brumm has said he’s finally gotten back into touch football each Thursday lunchtime with some of his colleagues.

15 – Bluey’s friend Chloe lives at 26 Nudgee Road. If you look this up, this is an actual address in the Brisbane suburb of Hamilton – and it’s an antique store. This address was picked at random by the writer and the producers made contact with the owners to check they were happy to have their address referenced. Fifteen thousand dollars in cash has been hidden somewhere within the store. Okay, that last part is a LUDO joke, but the rest is a legit fact.

Bluey and Bandit are Blue Heelers.

Like her name hints, Bluey is a blue heeler, also known as an Australian cattle dog, who can be born with blue or red coats. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), this breed is “compact but muscular” with “boundless energy,” who become “bored and gets into mischief.” Sounds just like Bluey!

Several of Bluey’s family members are also Blue Heelers, including her dad, Bandit, and her cousin, Muffin.

So as real-life diehard fans, we’ve put together a list of 20 things we bet you didn’t know about our favourite cartoon of all time.

1 – Bluey first came to life in 2016, in a one-minute pilot episode made in the creators spare time. While network bosses loved it, the clip never got to air. “It just had some dangerous stuff in it,” Bluey creator Joe Brumm told The Saturday Paper. “Bandit was pushing Bluey and she wanted to go all the way around on a swing, so she ends up doing a full 360 degrees. It was just unsafe. You could never put that on kids TV.”

2 – Joe Brumm is the second eldest in a family of three boys (like Bandit). Joe’s older brother is Professor Adam Brumm, who has been involved in archeological discoveries such as the fossilised remains of Homo Floresiensis (the Hobbit). And it was actually him who nicknamed it at a Queensland university. As we know, Bandit is an archaeologist, so that’s where that inspo comes from.

3 – Uncle Stripe – who is Bandit’s younger brother and the dad of muffin and Socks – is voiced by Dan Brumm, Joe’s younger brother, who is also the sound designer on Bluey. Meanwhile, Nana (Bandit’s mum) is played by Chris Brumm, who is yep, you guessed it: Joe’s mum.
