About Bob the Builder
Bob the Builder is a British stop motion animated children’s television series created by Keith Chapman for HIT Entertainment and Hot Animation. In the original series, which aired from 1999 to 2011, Bob appears in a stop motion animated program as a building contractor, specializing in masonry, along with his colleague Wendy, various neighbors, and friends, and their gang of anthropomorphised work-vehicles and equipment. The show is broadcast in many countries but originated from the United Kingdom where Bob was voiced by English actor Neil Morrissey. The show later used CGI animation starting with the spin-off series Ready, Steady, Build!. British proprietors of Bob the Builder and Thomas the Tank Engine sold the enterprise in 2011 to US toy-maker Mattel for $680 million.
In each episode, Bob and his group help with renovations, construction, and repairs and with other projects as needed. The show emphasizes conflict resolution, co-operation, socialization, and various learning skills. Bob’s catchphrase is “Can we fix it?”, to which the other characters respond with “Yes we can!” This phrase is also the title of the show’s theme song, which was a million-selling number one hit in the UK.
Bob the Builder happens to be the designated builder for Fixam and Spring City and also the unofficial leaders for the machines. Bob is quite the dedicated worker and he takes on any problem that comes his way; there’s nothing too difficult for him! He’s a real team player and he works together with his partner Wendy and leads the machines in a great team effort. Whenever an issue comes up in his community, you can be sure that he’ll be the first to go and fix whatever that issue may be. You can easily be reassured that Bob will complete any job that comes his way especially when he says his signature catchphrase, “Can we build it? Yes, we can!”.
Bob the Builder was a popular show, especially in England where it was first released. It began in 1999 and while it was halted for some time, it was picked up again in 2014 by Mattel. It has over 300 episodes and counting for you or your children to watch.
