  1. Awesome. We were all sitting on the couch at 8am yesterday and loved it.
    On a side note (thanks to David’s info on the four extra episodes)…the kids have watched one episode at least five times already this morning nearly missing today’s 8am episode!!

    And yes Happychappy a great idea ?

  2. Congrats to Bluey- well deserved. The government should make Bluey and her family spokespeople (or spokesanimals) for washing ours hands and other campaigns etc during these times….
