Bluey has again been censored after a term used on the hit children’s TV show was revealed to be pretty gross.
However, some elements of the show have been changed or taken out in the past, with the latest one coming after a seemingly innocent word used by Bandit had a much more grim meaning than the creators likely realised.
The latest season of the series were released in the United States this month; however, one eagle-eyed viewer has noticed a word was changed from the original Australian version.
In the episode Relax, which follows the family as they arrive at a hotel by the beach for a holiday, the two girls are singing in the back seat as their dad pulls into a parking garage.

‘All right, Super Troopers. Let the holiday begin,’ he declares as he gets out of the car.
However, in the original episode, which was released Down Under last year, Bandit originally said: ‘All right, dingleberries: let the holiday begin!’
While dingleberry is a colloquial term used to describe a ‘foolish, stupid or contemptible’ person, it can be used in a light-hearted joking way, likely how Bandit meant it to come across to his daughters.
At least that’s how the word is usually used in Australia.
As TikTok user AussieGirlMargie pointed out when highlighting the change, the word mean something completely different in other places.
‘When I was watching it, I was like “wait a second, Super Troopers?”. Why did they take out dingleberries? Like that’s obviously just a fun little saying,’ she began.
‘I’ve had it said in Australia before and it just means someone is being silly or foolish.
‘I was wrong. I Googled it…’
The series has faced several changes since being released around the world (Picture: ABC)
It turns out the way more disgusting definition of the word is ‘a piece of dried faecal matter clinging to the hair around the anus’.
‘It basically means poop. So, I can understand why Disney decided to change it rather than having kids around the world start calling each other dingleberries,’ she added while attempting to hold back laughter.
Previously Bluey has been changed by Disney on several occasions, with one episode about Bandit discussing a vasectomy changed to a conversation about a dental procedure.
The episode Family Meeting was even temporarily taken down from the streaming service in the US due to several references to farting.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Disney Plus for comment.
Bluey is streaming on Disney Plus.
