This is a GREAT show. It shows hard work, cooperation, and teamwork to
get the job done. The best part is the fact that none of the characters
are emotionally needy or use manipulation tactics to get attention
(example: Why won't anyone notice me, he doesn't want to be my friend,
I'm not as good as you, I didn't think you liked me). They just get the
job done and have a great time doing it. Even Spud, who's the laziest
of them all, tries to be good.
Also, it's not as preachy as some shows. Or syruppy either. It's just good wholesome programming!
In my opinion, I think Bob and Wendy should get married! :)
I just wish that this show was on when I was in pre-school. The characters are cute, and so are the plots, which teach important lessons to kids. I even enjoy watching this show with my 3 year old cousins. Although it may be a little corny, it is just too cute to be annoying.
And how couldn't I? This show was like a miracle waiting impatiently to
happen. Bob the Builder showed in a majestic way that shows for
children don't need to be corny, preachy or shallow for children to
appreciate them. All characters are extremely charismatic; I seriously
find it impossible to dislike any of them. The stop-motion animation is
spectacularly beautiful. But most of all, I think it's the writing that
truly makes the show. I don't remember seeing any story that went into
a tired, obvious cliché just for the sake of being "educational". The
focus is always on the diverse construction jobs - a most interesting
and rich subject for children - and on topics like teamwork,
cooperation and friendship. The stories are very well thought out. I
have to say that several moments of the series are just plain funny,
and I actually laughed out loud sometimes.
The characters aren't banal at all. With time, you can pick up some delicate intricacies and twists in their personalities that makes everything very believable. Bob himself, for example, is an extremely competent worker and a friendly guy, but he has his own moments of silliness: he built a cornet for himself once, and got so excited that he played his loud, out-of-tune ramblings all night long (either that or he was acquiring the taste for avantgarde). Other time, he found an old tambourine while cleaning a house's attic, and while playing with it, causes a tiny catastrophe; and while seeking for buried treasure with his metal detector, he broke a water pipe on farmer Pickles's field. Those small things make the series much more believable and palpable than other children's series, and in the end, you surrender and start to believe that marionettes can live a happy, joyous life in perfect harmonies with talking machines. Not everyone can create a series like that, you know.
I honestly recommend this series for everyone. And if you (or your kid) already are a fan, please, don't miss the Album. If you live in the US and are used to the Nickelodeon dubbing, you'll have to conform with the British voices (which I personally prefer). Either way, it's excellent, exciting music.
I just got addicted to this show just recently, when my 3 year old nephew wanted some Bob the Builder DVD's for Christmas. I watched them just to make sure they played OK............wait.......OK, I was curious too. I thoroughly enjoyed all 3 DVD's I bought. The show isn't preachy but teaches kids the importance of teamwork and getting along. At first I wasn't sure about the "pumpkinhead character" which turned out to be Spud, but he's my favorite character now. Highly recommended for small and big kids alike. I'm not sure I want to part with these DVD';s now, maybe I'll buy my nephew something else for Christmas. No, I'm kidding.
My 4 year old son loves this show, he watches it all the time it is a good show for kids to watch. He loves the animation and cannot get enough of it. It does not teach them much but he loves it anyway. I hope this show is on for a long time. His favorite character is Bob of course he also like Rolley and Muck along with Spud. I will definitely buy some more of the movies as they come out. He watches it everyday on nicalodeon and cannot get enough of it. Please keep it going for years to come hopefully they will make a theatrical movie of it that would be wonderful. I give this show a A+++++++. Hit entertainment had a hit when it first came out. Just keep up the good work and for the adults that want to talk bad about it for one it is a kids show.Kids love it
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.
Well let me start by saying this is a great show, if your 3 years old. my
nephew could sit for hours watching bob the builder.
And quite obviously the last person to make a comment on this show, has
so lost in his childish behaviour (just read his previous comments) , to
see that this show is purely for children age 1 to 5.
the show itself is great, the lack of negative emotion between the characters is great for little minds, genereally passing over a happy felling to the young viewer, this is a great kiddies show.
A nice show along the lines of Dragon Tales, where working together to solve problems is the key. The main song will get to adults after a short while, but it is not horrible. The characters are fun and they explore the results of poor behavior. Most of them have fears that can get a bit over done. But a fun show to watch with your 3 year old.
Young children can learn to tell right from wrong. Bob can educate children on their surroundings. In an episode, Bob warned the cat not to play with electricity and this is a strong message to all the young viewers. Parents and guardians must be with the children to teach them further on the things of the show. All in all, it is a very educational show and a great show to watch with your young children.
Along with Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends, Bob the Builder was one of my brother's favourite shows when he was little. And although I was 3 years older, and in year 2 of primary school when the show first aired, I loved it as well. You should have seen my brother's face every single time Bob the Builder came on, there were times when he would sulk but when the show came on it was as though he had seen something absolutely wonderful and wanted more of it. He wasn't the only person who loved it. A couple of friends of mine had a son who was ADDICTED to it, and when I was in primary school, at one time when we were doing assembly, the infants started chanting the theme song. And why shouldn't they? It is a great theme song, simple but catchy and memorable without being annoying, just like the theme songs of Rosie and Jim and Pingu, other favourites in our family. The animation was also really nice and the characters were cute and endearing. Then we had nice story lines that taught an important lesson every now and again, and the writing while simple wasn't stupid or childish. It may be corny for some adults, but overall this is a great show, that is guaranteed to delight toddlers. 10/10 Bethany Cox
