Anime trolls target Bluey to make the beloved Australian children’s show plunge in the ratings

Bluey has become the target of trolls who have set out to review bomb the beloved Australia children’s show.

The show’s executive producer Daley Pearson recently shared a tweet celebrating Bluey’s popularity.

Posting a screenshot from the IMDb website, Pearson said an episode of the wildly popular program had been ranked by fans on the platform as the No.2 show of all time.

An episode of Breaking Bad held the top spot.

The Bluey episode, called ‘Sleepytime’, was awarded the highest score possible by users, a star-rating of 10 out of 10.

But three days after Pearson’s tweet, the show had plunged to No.17 in the ratings, with many users giving the episode only one-star.

Meanwhile, episodes from Anime series like Attack on Titan and Code Geass surged into the top ranks of the IMDb’s most popular episodes.

Fans speculated that Pearson’s Twitter thread caused Bluey to fall victim to trolls.

‘Since this tweet went out some people went and messed up the user score,’ wrote one irate fan under Pearson’s story.

The controversy has created a storm on social media site Reddit, which openly speculated that Anime fans are responsible for reviewing bombing the show.

‘It’s a badge of honour really,’ said one user.

‘Anything starts to get haters once it gets enough elevation.’

They continued: ‘The fact that it’s getting review bombed, the silly recent attacking articles – all just testament to how good this show is that it’s hit that level. And that it’s a kids show makes this all more amazing.’

Bluey follows the adventures of ‘a loveable, inexhaustible six-year-old Blue Heeler dog’ along with her family and friends. 

The much-loved ‘Sleepytime’ episode won a Kids Emmy in 2019 and involves characters Bingo and Floppy in an intergalactic adventure.

Launched in 2018 on the ABC, Bluey was soon hailed for its refreshing characters – particularly Bandit as a capable and astute father as opposed to a bumbling background character common in kids’ programming.

It also earned rave reviews from critics and parents alike, who applauded its good-natured storylines and riffs on modern parenting.

The cartoon has become wildly popular in the U.S. after premiering on the Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney+ in September 2019.

Last year, The New York Times described the show as ‘the biggest Australian export since The Wiggles’ – the country’s most famous children’s band.
