Without getting too "what I did on my holidays" on everyone, thought you might like to know - WE WENT TO LUDO STUDIO! The exciting destination is a well-kept secret that far outstrips anything that Dreamworld/Movie World/Australia Zoo has to offer, and even better - we left the kids at home!
Not only did we see where the Bluey magic happens, we also recorded a whole Gotta Be Done ep with creator Joe Brumm, who had heaps of Bluey backstories and behind-the-scenes stuff to share. And while we haven't had time to actually edit the interview (HAVE WE MENTIONED WE'RE ON HOLIDAYS?!), this bonus ep is a bit of a preview of our time in those hallowed halls.
Also, we can't remember what animatics are called (animaniacs, anyone?!), we accidentally traumatise the production team when we're surprised they have no season two eps in the can, and of course baby Caspian makes a dramatic entrance. Even on holidays, some things never change!
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!
