It’s off-screen and mild, but basically (spoilers!) Bluey and her dad find a little injured budgie by a tree, took it to the vet, and found out it died. Absolutely no blood, gore, rotting or anything like that

Dogs have human tendency so there's no "animal abuse" as the regular terms.

In copycat, there is an injured budgie who dies, but no injuries bllod or death are shown. We hardly see the budgie.

the episode titled "space" features the character mackenzie processing abandonment trauma through play. [spoilers] there's a flashback sequence where he got mixed up in a slide as a very small child and assumes his mother abandoned him. His mother didn't actually abandon him, but it clearly upset him enough that he's been deeply affected by that event

There's a joke in "Fairytale" where child!Bandit's mother chases him with a shoe, implying she's gonna hit him with it. The show points out that this was wrong, but it's still out of left field for this show's typical message of promoting gentle parenting.

The Heelers are goals honestly, only extends to slight roughhousing and teasing during games such as Dad Baby where Chili lightly smacks Bandit with a newspaper in response to mocking comments about what it’s like to be pregnant, he’s very clear in on the joke though

The dad says to bluey and bingo that one watermelon isn't redder than the other. They clearly are.

Bandit is seen drinking a beer in the episode "BBQ." There's a running gag involving it getting knocked out of his hand. The episode "Whale Watching" has the parents hungover after a New Year's party.

Bluey's neighbor runs a bit too fast and pulls his hamstring but it's not graphic at all and is mostly played for laughs.

This concept comes up in a roleplay scenario in the episode "Magic", where Bluey and Bingo learn magic in order to "make people do anything", in this case to physically force the adults to play with them by "controlling" their body. While it's totally make-believe, everyone's reactions are played straight and at times they seem completely, genuinely, terrified. As such, it may still trigger the phobia depending on how bad yours is.

Fancy Restaurant; at the end of the episode Bandit is s*** after eating the food that Bluey and Bingo prepare. Mostly sound; you can just skip to the next episode, its the last bit of the episode.

Bandit farts in the episodes "Daddy Robot," "Fairies," "Teasing," "Family Meeting," and "Smoochy Kiss." Bandit having farted in Bluey's face is a major plot point in "Family Meeting." He also squirts water out of his mouth and nose in the episode "Favourite Thing."

Only pretend crying such as Bandit doing an obviously fake and unenthusiastic one in the episode "Promises." Although we do hear the four going on five year old Bingo actually crying in the episode "Sleepytime."

The show uses animation rigs. The 2nd unicourse episode show the animation program and how bluey the character is animated. Bluey wakes up and says "weird dream".

technically yes. in the episode “early baby” bluey is in school playing with her friends. they’re playing hospital and bluey is the doctor “delivering” her friend’s babies. it’s just pretend so it’s not at all graphic but one of bluey’s friends tells bluey that she’s having an “early baby” and the baby needs extra care after being born (premature). she then goes on to explain that her little sister was premature and had to stay in the hospital for a long time after birth which may be a sensitive subject for some! it’s handled very well and nothing bad happens (except rusty removing the baby from their play NICU and the girls screaming in terror but it’s very lighthearted and sweet)

Bingo pretends to be pregnant in one episode and the balloon under her shirt pops, implying miscarriage. She is very sad about it.

Like the comment above points out, there were two episodes ("Teasing," and "Flat Pack,") which used stereotypical phrases associated with Australian Natives, but some releases edited them out. They were replaced with "Shooby Doo-wah" and "Ooo-ooo" respectively.

In one episode, Uncle Randy mistakes Bluey to be a boy and she corrects him. However, this is not used in a harmful way.

In the episode "Grannymobile," a grouchy granny makes a fat shaming remark towards Bandit, and he's seen sadly looking at himself in the mirror.

Not only do no main characters die, everyone's an anthropomorphic dog, so there are no black people.

Since the characters are anthropomorphic dogs, they don't need clothes. No genitalia is shown at all.

(S2E19) Bingo stuffs a balloon in her shirt but she’s pretending to be pregnant not plus sized. Closest I can think to this is Bluey using a couch cushion to pretend to have a big bum at the beginning of S2E37 ,but that could mean different things

It's implied Santa (and others like him) aren't real, but the adults are good about not spoiling it. The episode Easter (Season 2 Episode 52) in particular, manages to tell kids that it's not their fault if the Easter Bunny shows up late (or forgets about their house) while still keeping the magic of holidays like this alive.
