People are just noticing that the 'Bluey' theme song is actually a secret game and it's blowing parents' minds
- The Australian children's show "Bluey" has a very recognizable opening theme song and dance.
- Parents are slowly realizing it's a game called musical statues.
For anyone with kids, the "Bluey" theme song may be on a constant loop at your house.
But parents around the world are slowly realizing that the Emmy-award-winning animated show's cute opening is actually a game of "musical statues," where participants freeze after the music stops.
In the children's game, you dance until the music pauses and then freeze in whatever silly position you're in. The first person to move is "out" while the others continue playing.
So in the "Bluey" opening, the mom dog is out first (with everyone shouting "Mom!"), then dad, then Bingo, and then finally Bluey, our titular protagonist.

The Australian children's show — about a family of dogs in Brisbane named Chilli (mom), Bandit (dad), and their daughters Bingo and Bluey — has become an international phenomenon since it premiered in 2018, now three seasons and over 140 episodes later.
It's so popular, in fact, that some parents say their children now speak with Australian accents and the earworm opener has even been used by creators on TikTok with over 162.7 million views, becoming a meme. Back in 2020, The New York Times called "Bluey" one of Australia's "biggest children's TV export since 'The Wiggles,'" the hit children's-song band.
So for any parents watching episodes of "Bluey," the next time the theme song comes on, remember you can join the family and even play along.
