Bluey: TikToker reveals bizarre edit made to beloved Australian children's show for US audiences


An American father on TikTok has revealed that Australian children’s show Bluey is edited for US audience – for a very bizarre reason.

On Monday, the social media personality – named Michael –  shared a clip showing a scene that had been deleted after noticing a strange transition between two scenes.

He referenced the season one episode called ‘Markets’, and asked other American parents who watch the show with their child if they spotted the unusual jump when Bluey jumps off a pony and is ‘suddenly’ buying German sausages.

‘It’s just very abrupt and very odd how it happens,’ he said, before revealing it was cut.

‘So it turns out it’s so weird because they cut a scene out of that episode that they’ll show in Australia, but Disney won’t show in the US,’ he added.

He then revealed the missing part in his post that showed Bluey patting a pony and just before it does a poop.

Is that all? He told other American parents: 'It turns out it's so weird because they cut a scene out of that episode that they'll show in Australia, but Disney won't show in the US.' The scene showed the pony doing a poop after Bluey pats it

The scene continues to show Bluey and his friend Indy running off and calling the moment ‘disgusting’ as they giggle.

An American parent commented: ‘Ugh I’m so annoyed by our country. The US allowed a book called “everyone poops” but can’t show this.’

‘Ok so guns are ok but kinder eggs and unicorns pooping are not,’ another said, also referring to the US ban on the chocolate treat for children.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Ludo Studios, who produce Bluey, for comment. 

This comes after Australians were outraged by calls to ‘Americanise’ the show for international audiences with themed episodes about Thanksgiving and Halloween. 

‘They don’t need to meet an American dog. They don’t need Thanksgiving introduced,’ one frustrated parent wrote in a Bluey online community.

However, they conceded that ‘a Halloween episode would be cute and relevant because Halloween is becoming a thing in Australia, especially for kids.’

Another viewer pushed back against any American influence over the ABC show. 

‘I hope they keep this show as Australian as possible simply because that’s why we all like it. Because it’s not like the other shows. And if they change it to fit other places then it won’t be an Australian show anymore and it’ll lose its magic,’ they wrote. 

One American fan weighed in, saying the show should remain completely Australian.

‘I don’t want it to be Americanized either. Its great the way it is. I’d love to see more of [Australia’s] holidays and tradition,’ they said.
