Today, the official social media accounts for the beloved children’s show bluey revealed that the animated dog will participate as a balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2022. Perfect for the tone of the series, the announcement said they heard New York is “really good at keepy uppy,” a reference to an episode of bluey in which the family has to keep a balloon in the air for as long as possible. It wasn’t that big or Bluey-shaped, but honestly, that probably wouldn’t have worked.
Since it debuted on ABC Kids in 2018, bluey has become one of the most watched and top rated children’s programs in the world. The series revolves around an energetic and imaginative young dog named Bluey and her family, Father Bandit, Mother Chilli and her younger sister, Bingo. It airs on Disney Junior in the US

Here’s how Disney described the series last year when we premiered a clip featuring Robert Irwin, son of famed conservationist and TV personality Steve Irwin:
bluey has been praised by media and families around the world for its recognizability of everyday childhood moments and family life. The series follows a sweet, inexhaustible 6-year-old Blue Heeler puppy, Bluey, who lives with her mom, dad and her 4-year-old sister, Bingo.
The series depicts the everyday events of family life – from going to a restaurant and a haircut to catching the bus or a play date – and celebrates these moments, turning ordinary experiences into extraordinary imaginative adventures. The program won a Logie Award for Most Outstanding Children’s Program and an International Emmy Kids Award in 2019.
