Bluey - The Complete Collection
- Product Review (submitted on 4 December 2017):
I can't really add much to what the previous reviews said, but it's certainly another welcome release from the Crawford's Archive. All 39 episodes of Bluey on the one set with the added bonus of Bargearse as well. As much as I like Bargearse I sometimes wonder if it was a help or a hindrance to the original. Possibly it's both. I don't recall watching Bluey much on it's original airing in 1976/77, I may not have watched it at all, but I was certainly aware of it, there was probably something else good on at the same time. I didn't really re-discover it until the early 90s, I think, when The Late Show did the Bargearse parody. And then Channel 7 showed it in a late-night or early-morning timeslot sometime after that. It probably had one of the more unusual pieces of casting in Lucky Grills as Bluey, but whoever was responsible for casting him certainly got it right.
