There is so much on Blue we probably don’t know. So many clues to unlock. So many potential hidden messages in the daily life of the Heeler family that sometimes we need a particularly perceptive investigator to sniff out them. This is exactly what we spent Blue fan made on TikTok. Watch him explain his theory that the rambunctious little Bluey Heeler is actually a rainbow baby to his parents Chilli and Bandit and is preparing to become a believer.
TikTok user @ world.shaker recently shared his thoughts about a “particularly sad theory” he came up with after watching Blue Season 2, Episode 16. The episode sees Bluey and her little sister Bingo trying to find a way to celebrate their mom Chilli on Mother’s Day. After Bingo accidentally spills his mother’s tea, the couple decide to put on a show based on their parents’ life together. Starting with their court in London and moving on to the most important element – Chile’s pregnancy.
As @ world.shaker notes, Bingo wears an inflated balloon under his shirt to mimic his mother when she was reportedly pregnant with Bluey. The two sisters jostle each other a little and the balloon bursts. At this point, their father Bingo takes his wife’s hand to comfort her. It reminds @ world.shaker that Bluey was born after a previous pregnancy loss because “Bandit’s first reaction is not to comfort their children, but to comfort his wife.”
It’s a small scene, but powerful. Something @ world.shaker notes is probably intentional. “I think the reason they weren’t as obvious about this as in other situations is that there isn’t really a right way to explain to a child what a miscarriage is. . ” He also points out that Blue never really shy away from tackling difficult topics like bullying, divorce, or even the death of a loved one. So to suggest that Bluey could be a Rainbow Baby doesn’t seem far from the truth.
This is not the first theory on Blue to do the TikTok tricks. In April, comedian Zach Mander took a deep dive into the Heeler family’s finances and decided they couldn’t afford their house on their wages. He suspected Bandit and Chilli, who work as an archaeologist and airport security respectively, of engaging in nefarious activities. Especially since one has in-depth knowledge of invaluable artifacts while the other could bypass airport security.
While the criminal theory is probably less than plausible, the rainbow baby theory makes sad sense. And while this was intentionally included on the show, it was a fun, easy way to make parents who have experienced pregnancy loss feel seen, without engaging the kids in a difficult subject. As always, well done Blue.
