Bluey on ABC launches special 28 minute episode

Bluey on ABC – Set your alarms, tell your friends! The world premiere of The Sign, the hotly anticipated 28-minute special Bluey episode, will air Sunday 14 April at 8am on ABC Kids and ABC iview – before becoming available globally.

ABC Head of Children and Family Libbie Doherty said,

“We have set the date! The Sign – the biggest Bluey episode ever – will premiere in April on the ABC, the home of Bluey. Australian audiences will be the first to watch the 28-minute special, uniting with fans around the globe as they wake up to share in this major broadcast event. Joe Brumm and the team at Ludo have exceeded all expectations – we’re sure this episode will delight and surprise, so get ready.”​

And that’s not all! Prior to The Sign, fans will be treated to brand-new regular length episode Ghostbasket, premiering on Sunday 7 April, 8am on ABC Kids and ABC iview.

​Both episodes are penned by Bluey creator and writer Joe Brumm, directed by Richard Jeffery, and produced by Ludo Studio.

“This is going to be an unmissable event for every Bluey fan worldwide and a fantastic springboard into the incredible world of Bluey for those new to the show who’ve yet to experience its pure joy.”

Ludo Studio said

We’re so excited to share Ghostbasket, a brand-new Bluey episode followed by The Sign which is the equivalent to nearly six Chunky Chimps! The crew have worked so hard on these two new episodes, making them the very best that they can be and we can’t wait to share them with a global audience.”

​Celebrities across the globe want to be a part of the Bluey world! The Sign is jammed-packed with voice talent: Patrick Brammall returns as the voice of Uncle Rad, alongside Megan Washington as Calypso, Claudia O’Doherty as Frisky, Myf Warhurst as Trixie, and Rose Byrne as Brandy.

​Making their Bluey voice debut, this special episode introduces Rove McManus, Deborah Mailman, Brendan Williams and Joel Edgerton.

​Co-commissioned by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios Kids & Family, Bluey is the #1 kids show on Australian broadcast television, and the most watched series ever on ABC iview.

Ghostbasket premieres on Sunday 7 April at 8am, and The Sign premieres on Sunday 14 April 2024 at 8am, both on ABC Kids and ABC iview. In the meantime, stream Bluey series 1-3 anytime on ABC iview.
