New BLUEY Mini-Episodes Are Here!

By Movieguide® Contributor

BLUEY and her friends are coming to Disney+…again!

The show’s new mini-episodes will now be available to stream on the platform along with its regular-length content.

According to a Disney+ press release, “Disney Branded Television has announced that the first seven ‘BLUEY Minisodes’ will premiere Wednesday, July 3, on Disney+ at 12:00 a.m. PDT. The first two minisodes will also air on Disney Jr. and Disney Channel that same day, with the additional five episodes rolling out throughout the networks’ ‘Red, White and Bluey’ marathon, which will take place over Fourth of July weekend.”

The first seven minisodes include:

  • “Burger Dog”
  • “Bingo 3000”
  • “Muffin Unboxing”
  • “Letter”
  • “Hungry”
  • “Three Pigs”
  • “Animals”

In the debut minisode, “Bluey and Bingo dance to annoying music while Bandit comes up with a plan to stop it.”

These episodes are one to three minutes each and are written by Joe Brumm, the creator of BLUEY.

“The shorts highlight funny and sweet moments featuring Bluey and Bingo, leaning into playful interactions and games that further explore the characters and world of “Bluey,'” Disney wrote.

Later this year, the next set of minisodes will debut, and then the final set will launch in 2025.

These minisodes have fans excited because, at one point, many viewers thought BLUEY’s run was coming to an end.

“No, it is not the end for BLUEY. I’m sure we have many more surprises in store for you,” producer Sam Moore reassured. “We have more in store, and we are thinking what would be next.”

Last quarter, BLUEY was the No. 1 most-watched series on Disney+ “among total viewers in the U.S.” and for good reason. Movieguide® has praised the show’s “Strong moral worldview of showing love and kindness.”

Part of Movieguide®’s review of “Ghostbasket” and “The Sign” reads:

Season Three of BLUEY on Disney Plus nears the end with Episode 48 and 49, titled “Ghostbasket” and “The Sign.” “Ghostbasket” contains a reappearance of Bluey and Bingo’s favorite game, Grannies. In this episode, Rita and Janet, played by Bluey and her sister Bingo, are trying to stop their house from getting sold. Episode 49: “The Sign” has two main storylines. The first storyline is Bluey and her family as they adjust to the idea of moving away from their home in Queensland. The other is saving the wedding of Bluey’s Uncle Rad and her godmother Frisky.

These episodes are not only well animated but have top notch storytelling. The characters are all relatable by both children and adults. The entire purpose of each episode is to teach important life lessons for every person. “Ghostbasket” shows how the elderly should be treated. “The Sign” is about trusting in a divine plan even when life doesn’t go your way. Thus, both episodes have strong moral worldviews. “Ghostbasket” and “The Sign” are a delight for children of all ages, including parents and grandparents.
