The riveting imagination of a young boy.
4 April 2004 | by vertigo_14See all my reviews

Bobby's World was one of my favorite cartoons. It is a journey into the imagination of what I think was a six-year-old boy. So, we are forced to things as a young child would, which makes it loads of fun. The stories involve Bobby, his big dog and boy's best friend, Roger, his obnoxious brother (with a rattail) Derrek, his shopping mall Valley girl sister and her boyfriend, the funky mom, Bobby's frequent playmate and uncle Ted, Bobby's red headed friend Jackie (who shares his later adventures), and finally Bobby's dad (Howie Mandel). It's no surprise that the show lasted 8 years.

Bobby's World also threw in those last minute moral stories the way the G.I. Joe cartoons did. Although sometimes, they were more like show closers similar to what Ren and Stimpy had. The real Howie Mandel would be interacting with cartoon Bobby as they said good bye to their audience or reiterated to children some important lesson.

It is one of the great cartoons that Fox had to offer. If you ever get an opportunity to rent the videos (I think they eventually started putting some of the seaons on tape) or catch the reruns on television, you're in for a treat.
