Our favourite TV show dad, the charming Bandit Heeler, from Bluey has been named as Father of the Year for 2019.

It’s no surprise that Bandit received a large amount of nominations for the award hosted by the Shepherd Centre, an organisation for hearing-impaired children.

Bluey’s dad received the accolade “for his role as a kind and hard-working father for Bluey and the Heeler family.”

“This award is testament to Bandit as he tries his best to be a worthy role model to his kids,” said Joe Brumm, a co-writer and creator of the show.

Quirky Fun

We love how the Queensland Blue Heeler is always playing the most fun and often quirky games with his daughter pups Bluey and Bingo. Although he has a job, he always makes time for his girls.

Bandit was awarded Father Of The Year in the Canine category, while ten time water-ski champion and Channel 7 presenter, Mark Beretta, was awarded Australian Father of the Year 2019. Former NSW Police Force officer, Peter Smart was named Community Father of the Year 2019.

Recently we shared an article as to why we need more shows like Bluey. Read more here.

  • Bluey seems to have taken the world by storm. And that’s fab for a little Aussie battler. I don’t watch it, but imagine my son would have loved it had it been around when he was little.


  • I’ve never heard of this show before. Congratulations to the winners though


  • I haven’t sat down and watched this show yet, but my youngest has seen it and likes it. Congratulations to the show!


  • To be honest I haven’t watched it. I guess that maybe the talking is slowly enough that all the words don’t run in together. I wish the radio announcers would speak slower.


  • Bandit is definitely Hubbys favourite character. He loves the episode ‘Neighbours’ and is more then happy to sit down with the kids to watch Bluey with them. Secretly I think he likes it more then them, if that’s possible haha


  • No Bluey in my home, but congrats to him!!!


  • I’m gonna award my husband as dad of the year especially today of course :) !
