#5 Grannies

Here come the Grannies! Gets me every time.

This is the first episode we meet Granny Rita (aka Bingo) and Granny Janet (aka Bluey), and didn’t they leave us wanting more?!

This episode has so many laugh-out-loud moments — including Bingo and Bluey’s granny impressions, with their one-liners and their shaky voices.

Then there’s Bluey and Bingo’s actual Nana learning to floss (the dance, not the teeth), which I’m pretty sure kicked off the flossing craze in Australia and beyond.

Grannies also shares wisdom in Bluey’s trademark non-preachy way; this episode provides a sisterly love lesson on being aware of others’ feelings.

#4 Sleepytime

This is one of the favourites of Bluey executive director Daley Pearson.

Pearson told ABC News Breakfast that all the teams involved in Sleepytime “went above and beyond”.

“That episode has everyone’s love and sweat,” he said.

Sleepytime is the one where Bluey’s little sister Bingo has her first go at having a big-girl sleep in her bed.

It’s beautiful, cinematic and, like some other Bluey episodes, uses classical music.

Jupiter, from Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite The Planets, supports Bingo’s narrative as she travels into space, bravely seeking her independence.

Rolling Stone gave Sleepytime a shout-out in its Best TV Shows of 2020.

It said the episode was a “four-hankie dazzler about the challenges, rewards, and costs of growing up”.

#3 Granny Mobile

The Grannies returned, and my family lost it — with squeals of laughter.

This time Bluey and Bingo’s cousin Muffin come along for the ride as fan favourite Grouchy Granny.

In Granny Mobile, the Heeler family help their older and not-so-assertive neighbour Doreen to get the right price for items she is selling at a garage sale.

It is laugh-out-loud funny when Grouchy Granny Muffin meets real-life Grouchy Granny, and the two haggle over the cost of a granny mobile.

#2 Baby Race

Baby Race was in the first series of Bluey, and features the magically wise line from Bluey and Bingo’s mum Chilli: “Run your own race”.

As a parent, I loved this episode. It not only shows children that we all learn differently and at our own pace, but it also reminds parents not to compare their children to other kids — or themselves to other parents.

Sounds like a no-brainer, but not so easy when you are sleep-deprived, overthinking and over-analysing way too much as you navigate the ever-changing world of parenting.

There were only 5,800 votes separating this episode from the number-one spot.

But there can only be one winner …

***Drum roll please***

#1 Cricket

Cricket certainly struck a chord with Bluey fans far and wide.

There were lots of big feelings about this episode on social media, and plenty of articles that raved about its magical appeal.

The episode features a neighbourhood game of cricket, with young Rusty’s story taking the lead.

Rusty lives and breathes cricket. He practises and perseveres and he steps up when his older brothers and mates don’t take it easy on him.

“ What Australians love about themselves is everything in that episode,” said Pearson on ABC News Breakfast.

“[It shows that] persistence will get you to a good place where you can achieve what your potential is, but it’s also [about] fair play and being good to those around you.”

Rusty’s dad, who is serving in the Australian Army (and is voiced by Blue Wiggle Anthony Field), sums up all the feels in this episode in a letter he sends home to the family — with a postscript to Rusty.

“As you grow up, you’ll face harder things than a cricket ball, and you’ll have two choices: Back away and get out, or step in front and play a full shot,” he writes.

“ Just keep your eye on the ball and take care of your little sister for me.”

When Rusty eventually decides it is time to get out — he sets up a catch for his overjoyed younger sister — it’s just beautiful!

Head of ABC Family & Children and Executive Producer of Bluey Libbie Doherty wasn’t surprised about the number-one choice.

“Joe Brumm and the team at Ludo Studio have so perfectly captured the spirit of the game,” she said.

“We hope all the backyard cricketers this summer give their younger siblings a catch, just like Rusty.”

Marbles and Sweets – Ace


✨ Moral Stories

A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles.

The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he would give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets.

The girl agreed.

The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. 🤫

The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised. 💛

That night, the girl slept peacefully.

The boy couldn’t sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble. 😹😹

😂😂 : If you don’t give your hundred percent in any relationship, you will always worry if other is giving their hundred percent or not. Be honest and live peacefully. 😂😂

Editors Note: you can’t trick the tricker 😂😂


Dating Sites


Life isn’t supposed to be easy 🤫

Or those dating sites keep matching you up with lunatics

A particular social consequence or artificial intelligence that keeps messing you up ✨✨

And suddenly have all the reasons ✨✨

There isn’t a secret brew

A lucky card ✨✨

Or even a prayer that will change the course of your
life with a snap of your fingers and a little bit of luck

Nevertheless, you can find solace in this case

You’re not alone

No one has all the answers to the question of whether or not the way forward is the right thing ✨✨

No one knows what they’re fulfilling 🤫

And even if they do in the temporary, in the now, they can’t possibly know this forever

There are so many unknowns in this realm

So much change ✨✨✨✨

So many situations and events to come

These eternities will propel us forward, and they will drag us backward

They will send us in hundreds of different directions that it’s nearly impossible to know where we’re led the way or where we’ll end up ✨✨

Remember it’s only a ride on a merry-go-round. Be kind to yourself

Show yourself the kindness you show others. 😅😅

Playground of the devil’s layout of hell 🤭🤗

Be happy if you have any money left 🤗


Some Mothers Do Have Them 🤗


Michael Caine with his mum in. 🤗

London. 🤗

He said this about her.💥

“I’m not sure she ever quite understood what I did. 😂

And she certainly never understood how much I earned. 😔

She asked me once, how much do you earn for a film? 🤗

I said, ‘A million pounds’ ‘Oh’ she said, How much is that? 🤗

She had no way of computing that sort of money, so I said, it means you don’t have to do anything mum, work for anything, or want for anything ever, ever again.🤗

😂 So no taking crafty cleaning jobs to be with your mates or I’ll get into trouble with the papers’
