Bluey: The Australian cartoon that's going global

A cartoon about a family of dogs and the games they play has become Australia's most streamed TV show - watched more than 100 million times.

Bluey has been praised for its portrayal of fatherhood in 2019 and even credited with helping viewers be better parents.

Now it will be shown around the world under a distribution deal with Disney - which agreed with the show's creators that the distinctive Australian accents were integral to Bluey's charm.
