An episode of the popular children’s show Bluey that featured flatulence was taken down from the on-demand service Disney+ in the United States because it was thought to be “inappropriate” for viewers.
Despite the fact that Dad Bandit is a worldwide phenomenon, an apparently innocuous episode about Dad Bandit being accused of letting off a fart in front of his eldest daughter was kept off the schedule for the show’s third season for American viewers.
According to the streaming service, the episode titled “Family Meeting” was first removed because it did not conform with the standards and practises requirements of the service at the time. However, the decision to remove the episode has subsequently been reversed.
Since then, a member of the Disney Branded Television staff has disclosed to Pirates and Princesses that the episode will soon be made available, providing an explanation as to why the decision was reversed.
“‘Family Meeting’ will soon be available on platforms in the United States.
They stated that certain elements of the Bluey content did not adhere to the Disney Junior broadcast S & P that were in place at the time that the series was acquired.
“Now that it is going out on other platforms, it is a fantastic opportunity to re-evaluate, which is exactly what we plan to do,” he said. “Now that it is spreading out on other platforms, it is a terrific opportunity.”
This children’s show was nominated for multiple awards and ran for three seasons. It follows the exploits of a Blue Heeler puppy named Blue who lives with her family and finds herself in a variety of comedic and unusual situations.
It was honoured with the Kids: Preschool Award at the 2019 International Emmys, which was also the same year that Disney+ began offering the series in countries all over the world.
It has recently seen a meteoric rise in popularity across the United States.
According to Kidspot, Bluey’s Australian accent is even starting to rub off on American fans. One such fan is a woman from South Louisiana who noticed a minor accent being used by her infant boy Charlie in a TikTok video that was posted in April.
A number of mothers and fathers have mentioned that their children have begun using Australian lingo as well.
