Bob The Builder In Detail
If you live in world of toddlers, tantrums, toilet training and teething then you will be more than familiar with the shining light at the end of the patched up tunnel that is Mr Bob the Builder. Bob the Builder has the power to captivate the mind of a tearaway three year old, and more importantly, hold their attention. Why, you may ask is Bob the Builder so appealing to young audiences? Well, the simple answer is that Bob the Builder fixes things, sometimes by hitting them with a hammer!! And to a young child, that is simply the most awesomely coolest thing in the whole wide world.
The longer answer is that Bob the builder (with his trusted team of sidekicks) is a carefully constructed and thought-out modern childrens television programme that is designed in such a way that children learn morals and good behaviour through watching anthropomorphised characters interact with each other. Most modern childrens television programmes are created in this way, take for example Lazy Town, with it emphasis on healthy eating and exercising, or Dora the Explorer who solves puzzles whilst exploring and saving the day.
Bob the Builder came to TV screens in 1999. The first series was centred around Bob. a construction worker (voiced by Neil Morrissey). Set in Bobsville, Bob and his business partner Wendy run Bobs` construction yard. On hand to help out are Bob`s `can-do-crew`, a team made up of animated clay characters including vehicles, animals and a mischievous scarecrow called Spud.
The crew themselves have a huge following, each has their own personality and catchphrase, amongst the most popular are: Scoop the yellow Digger, who is the leader of the vehicles. Scoops catchphrase is "No, prob Bob!" He loves moving dirt and is always up for a challenge. Muck, the red Digger Dump Truck. Muck loves getting dirty, but is afraid of the dark Mucks catchphrase is "Muck to the rescue!". Dizzy is the Orange cement mixer, who often says "Brilliant!". Dizzy loves music and loves chattering and giggling. Roley, the green Steam Roller. Roley says "Rock n` Roll!" and he loves singing and spinning. Benny the small purple Digger. Benny says "It`s unreal banana peel!" and is a confident enthusiastic special robo-digger. Lofty is the blue Crane who most often says "Er, yeah, I think so!" He is timid and scared of heights and Spud the screcrow.
The second, and subsequent series of Bob the Builder, are titled "Project: Build-It" and see Bob and his crew move to Sunflower valley to take part in a Eco competition to build a new community.
Project Build it focuses on eco-friendly planning and construction. And its central theme is "Reduce! Re-use! Recycle!".
Bob the Builder has been successfully cemented a place in children and adults psyches for evermore with its infectious Number 1 Single, "Can we fix it...Yes! We can". Additionally you will find an array of merchandising and Bob The Builder Bedroom accessories available.
