The show featured a host of regular characters, including musicians, a magician, a ventriloquist, and a police officer. A popular feature was Bimbo the Birthday Clown giving the birthday announcements. See more »
I was very sad to hear about "Uncle Bobby's" passing. When I lived in Toronto during the mid-seventies, I used to watch his show quite regularly.
On one occasion, I got to meet him when my class went to visit the "Uncle Bobby Show" set. He seemed to be a rather decent fellow. The fact that my father was also originally from Britain probably struck an additional chord with me.
It was also a thrill to see Bimbo the Clown up close. To this very day, every time I listen to Jim Reeve's "Bimbo" song, it reminds me of him singing the Birthday song.
