A secret episode of the Emmy-winning Australian animated series “Bluey” has stealthily made its debut in the past few hours, evading detection on TV listings and streaming platforms worldwide.

Despite ABC Australia mistakenly labeling a rerun of a prior “Bluey” episode in TV guides, a brand-new episode titled “Surprise!” unexpectedly aired on Sunday morning. Simultaneously, it made its debut in the UK on CBeebies under the guise of a show named “Something Special.” and on Disney+ it looks like the fresh episode will premiere on Sunday, April 21st at 12 am US-PT in the United States.

In this episode, titled “Surprise!” Bluey and her sister Bingo coax their father (Bandit) into playing two different games with them simultaneously.

This unexpected release follows last week’s “The Sign,” a special 28 minute which showed the Heeler family putting their house up for sale, sparked concerns among viewers and media about the potential end of the show. As a savvy marketing move, the Heeler home was listed for sale on multiple real estate outlets.

The series garnered over 20 billion minutes of streaming on Disney+ in the US last year, constituting nearly one-third of all TV views on the platform and ranking as the second most-watched TV series across all streaming services in the US in 2023, so I guess not everything needs to be Marvel or Star Wars.

The new episode “The Surprise” is available to stream on ABC iView in Australia now.
