What does Bluey's dad Bandit do for a living?

Although Bluey is the central character, the breakout star has to be her father Bandit Heeler.

Bandit works as an archaeologist, because he loves digging for bones.

We also know he works from home sometimes, and has a beautiful office which includes artefacts from his travels.

Bandit is often at home with the kids, but he also has had to make some long work trips.

The popular character is voiced by musician David McCormack, who has previously revealed that he had never acted before, and that Bluey was his first gig.

Like Bandit, he's a dad, so he revealed how the role doesn't always require a huge amount of acting.

Speaking to the Sky News' Backstage podcast he said: "My secret weapon was when we started doing it I had daughters who were three and five, and maybe that's the approximate age of Bingo and Bluey.

"So they gave me the script and I'd read it and whatever was happening in the script probably happened to me that day or last week or that morning."

But David also revealed he could learn a thing or two from Bandit.

He laughed: "I wish I was more like Bandit Heeler, but you know what advantage Bandit has?
