Vote for Turtleboy as your favourite Bluey episode in the Biggest Little Bluey Countdown!
To celebrate 5 years of Bluey, ABC Kids are going to be counting down the top 100 episodes, as voted by you.
Deaf Connect have been proud to partner with the ABC to introduce Dougie – a profoundly Deaf child (dog) who uses Auslan to communicate with his hearing mother, as part of the ‘Turtleboy’ episode in Season 3.
Turtleboy has been incredibly important for Deaf and hard of hearing kids around Australia, and beyond, to see themselves represented through their beloved Bluey Characters on-screen, sharing the use of Australian Sign Language (Auslan). To celebrate Deaf inclusivity and positive education in children’s media, we would love to see your appreciation for Turtleboy by voting it as number #1 by Monday 6th November.
