On Netflix, in the first episode, at 00:43 he says it. Netflix translates it as "what a drag". It sounds to me like 「だりー」 not 「だるい」. But maybe I'm mishearing?

The dictionary says だるい means sluggish; languid; listless; heavy. Google translates it as "tired". Which seems like a good fit.

I did find this image of だるい but I'm not sure if it's the catch phrase or just another related phrase.

What is Gudetama saying? What's his catch phrase?

    It's the same word as だるい but pronounced with a slangy accent.
