Last week, Disney added the first half of the third season of the smash-hit Australian animated series, “Bluey”, onto Disney+ in countries around the world.
However, eagle-eyed “Bluey” fans quickly spotted that an episode entitled “Family Meeting” was missing from Disney+. This specific episode is about what happens when Dad’s accused of fluffing (farting) in Bluey’s face as he climbs out of bed, he’s put on trial with Mum as the judge, and Bluey and Bingo as witnesses. Bluey might also have to explain what she was doing there.
According to Pirates and Princesses, Disney Branded Television’s standards and practices team, the episode didn’t meet guidelines at the time for airing on the Disney Junior channel. However, Disney has stated:
“Family Meeting” will roll out on U.S. platforms soon. Some of the “Bluey” content did not meet Disney Junior broadcast S&P in place at the time the series was acquired. Now that it is rolling out on other platforms, it is a great opportunity to reevaluate which is what we plan to do.
This isn’t the first episode of “Bluey” that Disney hasn’t added to Disney+, our reporter, Josh Shepherd, has compiled a list of some of the episodes that weren’t deemed appropriate for Disney+.
With “Bluey” being one of the most popular shows available on Disney+ and many parents also enjoying the show, it’s not a huge surprise to see Disney backtrack on adding the “Family Meeting” episode, especially since, well, we all fluff!
