Olivern's comments about this show may be referring to another Uncle Bobby, as the Uncle Bobby I remember from my youth was a small, middle-aged fellow, possibly with a British accent, who wore sweaters.

For years, Uncle Bobby was an institution on Saturday morning TV on CTV here in Canada, and the show was a mixture of games, comedy routines and documentaries. I remember a special episode back when the CN Tower in Toronto was completed.

My favorite segment involved a big, cardboard clown character who would come out of the wall to the tune of Jim Reeve's "Bimbo" -- I think he might have had something to do with birthdays.

Sadly, memories of Uncle Bobby have faded over the years. The show left the national network in the late 1970s and I believe it continued as a local Toronto program for awhile after that. But 25 years ago when I was 7 and 8 years old, Uncle Bobby was as much a part of my regular Saturday morning routine as "Spider-Man" and "Rocket Robin Hood" reruns.
