We know everybody needs good Neighbours, but can you construct a cubby without couch cushions? Mary thinks not, and this episode of Bluey has prompted some big (housing) developments in her lounge room!

Meanwhile, Kate's gone down a 90s sitcom rabbit hole, and there's tons of TVs most annoying neighbours at the bottom. But Mary's going into bat for Bandit's stereotype - is it really true that nobody likes a bogan/her? 

And finally, can a good hard stare save the day, or was it Chilli's peace lily that really fixed the feng shui on Mulberry St? It's no more far-fetched than the average Ramsay St resolution - lucky we brought our own laugh track!

Lots of animals live in the Zoo, but how has it taken 36/37 years and this episode of Bluey to enlighten Kate and Mary on the existence of pademelons?! 

We're also wondering when Bandit last got through his weekend newspaper - and should we persist with ours? More importantly, will we ever be as good on the up-sell as Bluey? Her zoo keeper character is one cool capitalist, but Kate suspects the skills started elsewhere. 

Then there's speculation about the Bluey live show (how will they talk?!), reminiscing about Arthur the Aardvark, and a menagerie of weird moments. 

Thanks so much for dropping by our zoo (especially all the new listeners who found us via Mary's ABC Life piece!) - please do exit via the gift shop!

From shoveling food into our children to it coming out the other end, Spy Game is the Bluey episode tackling all the issues close to our heart/daily horrors. 

We consider an international incident sizzling over trans-Tasman sausage skills, and all the features of New Farm Park in Brisbane that make this episode so very @bluey_locations friendly. Mary remembers a childhood full of useful passwords, and Kate needs a horticultural expert - are the jacarandas ever not blooming in that beautiful city??

Finally, we debate the origin of man - well, the origin of the one man who went to mow, at any rate. Wuff!

It's a new year, it's a fresh start - and dammit, we're not letting the 12 Days of Bluey go! Enjoy as we splutter our way through a recap of Australia's most favourite Bluey episodes as voted by you - and the fact that small children don't exactly share our excellent taste (RIP Bike). 

But the upside - an excuse for Keepy Uppy, which came in at #6 (not to get all mathematical on you, but that's practically top five). 

We consider all the different ways that balloon use can distribute bodily fluids around the house, and Mary gets conspiracy-theorist about how Big Plastic dreamed up balloon arches (what are they for?!) 

Plus so much Kate love for the true hero of this epic (and perhaps the true reason for the #6 spot?!), Lucky's Dad! It's great to be back!
