Iconic BLUEY Voices Share Behind-the-Scenes Stories in Cute Interview

By Movieguide® Contributor

Two of the stars of BLUEY, Dave McCormack and Melanie Zanetti, recently appeared on THE TONIGHT SHOW to talk about all things BLUEY. 

The animated kids’ show follows Bluey, a talkative, exuberant puppy who goes on adventures and uses her imagination when she plays with friends and family. 

A portion of Movieguide®’s review of BLUEY reads:

BLUEY: Season One is a wonderfully animated children show with a high production value. BLUEY is entertaining not just for children, but also adults. The comedy is witty enough to get a good chuckle out of parents. Even better, the program has strong family morals and lessons that both children and adults can learn. It has a positive depiction of Bluey’s relationship with her sister, mother and father. There are also common themes of sharing, learning and growing up. There is no foul language or other objectionable content. MOVIEGUIDE® finds BLUEY: Season One suitable for all ages.

McCormack and Zanetti spoke about what it’s like to star in the show. 

“[My kids] love it,” McCormack said. “Grace is almost 9. Rose is 11. They love it. They were confused when it first came on TV because they’d look at the TV and Bandit [McCormack’s character] was speaking, and they’d look at the TV like ‘What is going on?’”

He joked that he confuses other young fans when they meet him, too. 

“They normally burst into tears,” he joked. “Because they think I’ve, like, eaten Bandit and his voice is coming out.”

The pair also talked about the impact the show has had, including a live show at Madison Square Garden and a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. 

“It was explained to me from friends in L.A. just, like, how monumental that is,” Zanetti laughed. She and McCormack are both Australian. “Because I was like, ‘Oh, we have some float in a parade.’”

They also teased a potential BLUEY movie: “A trilogy!” McCormack said. “With a pre-story one!”
