New heartbreaking Bluey fan theory that suggests the animated pup was a 'rainbow baby' goes viral 2

‘Heartbreaking’ Bluey fan theory that the animated dog was a ‘rainbow baby’ goes viral on TikTok: ‘Thanks for making me cry today’

A fan theory about the hit Australian children’s show Bluey has gone viral on TikTok.

Some viewers are convinced the animated dog was ‘rainbow baby’ – a child born to a mother who previously had a miscarriage – and say there are clues in the second season that support this theory.

Bluey has dealt with heavy topics before, including death and divorce, in a bid to educate children about more serious issues.

TikTok user World.Shaker, who boasts 274,000 followers on the video-sharing app, outlined the ‘rainbow baby’ theory in a viral clip. 

‘I want to share one of my Bluey theories and unfortunately it’s not a happy one. This theory is that Bluey is a rainbow baby,’ World.Shaker said. 

He singled out a scene from season two in which Bluey and his sister Bingo reenact scenes from their parents’ lives, including an apparent reference to miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

Bluey’s sister Bingo has a balloon under her T-shirt that suddenly bursts, and their father Bandit grabs their mum Chilli’s hand.  

‘Bandit’s first reaction is not to comfort their children, but to comfort his wife,’ the TikTok user explained.

‘Quite frankly, I think the reason they weren’t so obvious about it is because there’s not really any great way to explain to a child what a miscarriage is,’ he added.

‘It’s important to remember that Bluey has never been a show that shies away from difficult topics, especially through the lens of a child, including bullying, divorce, premature birth and even death.

‘But seeing as though Bluey is a parents’ show that kids happen to enjoy, I think it’s a little bit more obvious to the parents who are watching.’

Underneath, fans were shocked at the theory. 

Sad: Their father Bandit grabs their mum Chilli's hand. 'Bandit's first reaction is not to comfort their children, but to comfort his wife,' the TikTok user explained

‘Wow, thanks for making me cry today,’ one fan wrote. 

Another added: ‘Literally every time I see the scene where he takes his wife’s hand it makes me literally tear up and I don’t even know why.’

Bluey is an Australian kids TV show that airs on the ABC and was created by Joe Brumm. 

Meanwhile, fans were sent into overdrive last month when a home in Brisbane, where the show is based, was transformed into the Bluey house. 

At the time, neighbours told ABC News that the house had bought ‘magic’ to their suburban street as crowds lined up to get pictures outside.
