Robert Irwin, son of the renowned late Steve Irwin and younger brother of Bindi Irwin, is all set to star in an upcoming episode of the Emmy-winning, popular and successful animated kids’ series Bluey. The Australian show airs worldwide on Disney Channel, Disney Junior and in DisneyNOW in the US.
The second season of Part two of the hit show started airing earlier this month, and Irwin makes a special guest appearance voicing the pup Alfie, a helpful store clerk who saves the day in the episode The Quiet Game, premiering on 26 February.
The latest heartfelt and humour-filled stories also bring preschoolers, parents and caregivers along as Bluey makes her first trip to the movies – Mum reminisces about when Bluey was a baby; Muffin comes to visit wearing a cone (to stop sucking her thumb!), and Bluey and Dad, Bandit, have a birthday cake mishap…and more!
Bluey features hilarious “real” depiction of childhood and family life. The new episodes feature the latest imagination-packed adventures of Bluey, the inexhaustible six-year-old Blue Heeler pup, her four-year-old little sister, Bingo, and parents, Bandit, her Mum, Chili.
In Australia, Bluey is the most watched series ever on ABC iview, with over 480 million plays across series one and two (as per data reports). The series has enjoyed critical success internationally, winning an International Emmy Award in the ‘Preschool’ category in March 2020.
