Watch Bluey Bonus Bits for free on YouTube
In addition to occasional live-streamed full episodes, Bluey’s official YouTube channel also posts “Bluey Bonus Bits,” short-form videos that aren’t part of the official Bluey “canon.” These videos are usually 1-2 minutes long and feature slice-of-life moments instead of stories, like Bingo singing a song about peas and sausages while coloring at the kitchen table.
“Banned” episodes of Bluey
The following episodes of Bluey do not appear on Disney+ in the U.S.:
Season 1 Episode 48: “Teasing”
Season 2 Episode 13: “Dad Baby”
To see these “banned” episodes, you’ll need to stream them on ABC iview in Australia.
Why did Disney+ ban these episodes?
S1E48 “Teasing” originally included a word that some viewers complained could be considered insulting to indigenous people. Although this word was replaced and redubbed in the Australian version, neither version of the episode ever made it to Disney+.
S2E13 “Dad Baby” features Bluey’s dad, Bandit, pretending to be pregnant with her sister, Bingo. Although we don’t know exactly why Disney censors rejected the entire episode, they probably found the sequence where Bandit “gives birth” a little “too real” for American audiences.
Can I use a VPN to watch ‘Bluey’ in another country?
Are there other “censored” parts of Bluey?
Yes, some episodes were altered by Disney to cater to American cultural sensibilities. For example:
In the original version of S3E1 “Perfect,” Bandit is talking to another dad at a party and, although it isn’t mentioned explicitly, he is pretty clearly considering getting a vasectomy (“Chilli, she wants to keep her options open. But I don’t know. Do we want any more of these things running around?”). In the edited version on Disney+, the conversation is changed to be about having teeth pulled (“I probably should get it done. But I love my dog teeth. I dunno, what if one day I just wanna bite someone?”).
In S3E24 “Faceytalk,” Bluey’s cousin Muffin bursts into the bathroom while being chased by Uncle Stripe. In the original version, Aunt Trixie is clearly visible on the toilet. In the edited version, this is mostly cropped from the shot.
To see these (and more) uncensored Bluey moments, you’ll need to watch the original Australian episodes on ABC iview.
Is Bluey on Netflix or Prime Video?
