Sunrise hosts can’t contain their laughter when beloved children’s show is compared to Breaking Bad

Sunrise hosts Natalie Barr and David Koch struggled to get through an interview with Daley Pearson, the executive producer of the beloved children’s show Bluey, on Friday.

The pair couldn’t contain their laughter when they talked about Bluey being compared to the meth-making series Breaking Bad. 

The trio were discussing a ranked list on IMDB for the most popular television episodes of all time, where Breaking Bad had the number one spot and Bluey a close second.

Daley was asked whether being compared to Breaking Bad was ever something he thought of and he jokingly responded with ‘it was always the dream, it was always the goal. 

‘To be associated with that show is just a testament to Joe, Charlie, the animators here and everyone who makes the show.’

The discussion was sparked after Bluey became the target of Anime trolls who have set out to review bomb the beloved Australia children’s show.

Pearson recently shared a tweet celebrating Bluey’s popularity.

Posting a screenshot from the IMDb website, Pearson said an episode of the wildly popular program had been ranked by fans on the platform as the No.2 show of all time after Breaking Bad. 

The Bluey episode, called ‘Sleepytime’, was awarded the highest score possible by users, a star rating of 10 out of 10.

But three days after Pearson’s tweet, the show plunged to No.17 in the ratings, with many users giving the episode only one star

Meanwhile, episodes from Anime series like Attack on Titan and Code Geass surged into the top ranks of the IMDb’s most popular episodes.

Fans speculated that Pearson’s Twitter thread caused Bluey to fall victim to trolls.

‘Since this tweet went out some people went and messed up the user score,’ wrote one irate fan under Pearson’s story.

The controversy has created a storm on social media site Reddit, which openly speculated that Anime fans are responsible for reviewing bombing the show.

‘It’s a badge of honour really,’ said one user.

‘Anything starts to get haters once it gets enough elevation.’

They continued: ‘The fact that it’s getting review bombed, the silly recent attacking articles – all just testament to how good this show is that it’s hit that level. And that it’s a kids show makes this all more amazing.’

Bluey follows the adventures of ‘a loveable, inexhaustible six-year-old Blue Heeler dog’ along with her family and friends. 

The much-loved ‘Sleepytime’ episode won a Kids Emmy in 2019 and involves characters Bingo and Floppy in an intergalactic adventure.

Launched in 2018 on the ABC, Bluey was soon hailed for its refreshing characters – particularly Bandit as a capable and astute father as opposed to a bumbling background character common in kids’ programming.

It also earned rave reviews from critics and parents alike, who applauded its good-natured storylines and riffs on modern parenting.

The cartoon has become wildly popular in the U.S. after premiering on the Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney+ in September 2019.

Last year, The New York Times described the show as ‘the biggest Australian export since The Wiggles’ – the country’s most famous children’s band.
