'Bluey' will celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer.

The Australian preschool animated TV series tells the story about a family of cartoon dogs living life in Brisbane, and episode 'Queens' will be made available for the first time on free-to-air TV in the UK on Sunday 5 June.

The Jubilee episode will feature sisters Bluey and Bingo as they play a game of Queens but discover playing the butler is actually more fun.

Bluey has become a hit among audiences, winning the hearts of kids and parents around the world, after it first launched in Australia in 2018.

The show has won multiple awards, such as the International Emmy Kids Awards in the prestigious Preschool Category in 2020, and has picked up the AACTA Award for Best Children’s Program for three years running.

Most recently, the much loved show announced it was expanding its licensing programme with new partners.

Alison Downie, Global Licensing and Brand director for HTI Group, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with BBC Studios once again on another hugely popular pre-school show.

"'Bluey' will be made very welcome here at HTI Toys and we are excited to develop a range of toys that complement Bluey’s love of play.”

They have also continued to grow its licensing program in EMEA while existing licence Ravensburger has signed a new deal with BBC Studios to cover France, Italy and Nordics.

Tim Hall at Ravensburger said: “We are delighted to extend our very long standing and excellent partnership with BBC Studios.

“We launched 'Bluey' in the UK last autumn/winter and our puzzles were immediately best sellers in all the accounts where they are listed and that success continues to build. We look forward to further growth in the UK and Ireland and establishing the property in the new territories.”
