So 26 episodes of Bluey S3 are now out in the ABC iView wilds - where did those weeks go??

Anyway, five minutes ago when they'd just started dropping, Mary snuck in a quick chat with Chilli herself Melanie Zanetti!

The Brisbane star had plenty to share about her frenetic year of recording Bluey everywhere from LA to Florence, in between filming romance and horror and even saving the planet!  Also, what might be the perfect way for Bandit and Chilli's voices to finally meet for real life?!

Thanks Melanie Zanetti for jumping back in the wagon, and enjoy your Aussie Christmas break!

(Gotta Be Done is also taking a break for Christmas and we'll be back in the (happy!) new year.

Huge thanks to every one of you beautiful folks who been along for the (hell) ride that was 2021. Hope Bluey has saved you when you needed.)

Gotta Be Done is ex-journos and Melbourne mums Kate McMahon and Mary Bolling, as we deep-dive on every Bluey episode, with plenty of detours into mama life, childhood memories, and everything else we're bingeing, too!

Gotta Be Done is back to recaps, and they're not crying, you're crying. (Clearly everyone is crying.)

Bedroom seems to answer some longstanding Blueyverse questions (or does it, Grandpa Bob wherever you are?) and has Kate and Mary wondering how many babies is the right number (and also, why cots have teeth marks?)

Plus the importance of persisting with drawing for successful communication, and how to respond to late night requests/ demands/ hostage situations. 

Bags not!

Did you know that when Ludo Studio was developing early Bluey episodes, the animatics featured Darren Hanlon songs as holding scores?

Gotta Be Done has never seen them (ahem, we'd love to!) but now Gympie's favourite folk troubadour has an official Bluey gig too - as the Alt Energy Dog in S3 episode Sheep Dog! 

Darren joins Mary in the Gotta Be Done wagon to talk Queensland's biggest cultural exports, little people's favourite songs, his love of Dave McCormack's band Custard, and how his guest role is already delivering playground cred.

Also sneaking in are just a few hints of Darren's gorgeous tunes, including House, We All Cope in Different Ways, All These Things, Folk Insomnia, and Lapsed Catholic.  

Darren had a chat just before he launched his national tour, and ahead of his new album next year - thanks Daz!

BONUS EP (aka It‘s DAD!!)

New Bluey means Gotta Be Done has new excuses to sneak behind the scenes - and finally, Kate and Mary have bumped into Bandit/ Dave McCormack!

This frenetic chat reveals that Dave has now been part of 153 episodes of Bluey (and is still recording as Season 3 hits our screens!), that Sydney's lockdown had him deeply considering a mullet, and that he still doesn't consider himself a real actor. (Would a Logie just for his Unicorse performance change his mind??)

Also, what do Dave McCormack and Bandit actually have in common? And maybe the biggest question of all, who is Dave's favourite character?!  

It's DAD!!
