Trivia

There was fan outrage after the art style of the show was changed to CGI over classic stop motion. The Independent Film Association of Schools in Ireland even went as far as to say "the amount of stop motion animation being replaced by CG is overwhelmingly high". See more »

My son LOVES Bob!
28 February 2004 | by hallmsSee all my reviews

My three year old son has loved Bob the Builder and friends for almost two years. He loves anything with tools, trucks and construction equipment, and this is right at his level. He has been Bob the Builder for Halloween for two years now. He uses the tools, his Bob the Builder fan club hat, and his Bob the Builder boots when he has to "fix" things around the house. He also enjoys the games on the website. Perfect for small ones to play with little assistance. As for the show, the tales and animation are simple enough for little ones, but not too annoying for the parents, too. Now that he is a bit older, we especially enjoy the Bob movies, Knights of Can-a-Lot and A Christmas to Remember. We look forward to more from this crew.
