According to ABC a reportDuring 2019-2020, Bluey had 63 million shows running on iview in total.
The show also initially created confusion as the characters looked somewhat similar to those in the popular animated shows Family Guy and Peppa Pig.
“A lot of people didn’t know what they were thinking,” Daley Pearson, executive producer of Bluey, told the BBC in 2019.
People weren’t sure if she fell into some kind of prime-time comedy, you know, Family Guy or if she fell somewhere towards Peppa Pig.
It comes after Zanetti and co-star David McCormack, who voices the character Bandit, met for the first time in person just last month.
The two actors are one of the most successful on-screen couples in the world, and they looked cozy when they sat side by side for an interview with Jimmy Fallon.

“(We met) two days ago for the first time,” Zanetti told the host, smiling.
“We record separately, we live in different cities, and I travel a lot for work,” she explained.
This was something that shocked the host, as both of them have been integral members of the popular kids’ show since 2018.
McCormack agreed that the arrangement was not what he had expected when he signed up for the show.
“I thought we were all sitting around a table, you know, like in the movies,” he said.
“But we are just isolated in our booths,” he added.
McCormack lives in Sydney, while Zanetti commutes between Brisbane and Los Angeles for work, and this with the government shutdown means they never get a chance to get together.
The stars also talked about how they were able to score the parts of Bluey’s parents.
McCormack said he was in an elevator one day when someone asked him to participate. He pushed back and said he couldn’t act but finally agreed to try.
