Bob the Builder Back on PBS - Host Your Own Viewing Party #ad

Everyone’s favorite builder is now back on PBS Kids for a second season. To help celebrate Bob the Builder’s return we wanted to invite you to host a viewing party with your family! To host your own party, you can just gather the neighborhood kids for some of the episodes of their favorite builder or  go big and have a dump truck themed cake, tools and hard hats for everyone, etc.   There is no wrong way to celebrate Bob the Builder’s return.

Bob the Builder™ re-launched in the Fall of 2015 featuring CG-animation, brand new locations, and a new look for Bob.  The popular preschool series has been broadcast in over 175 countries and translated into 40 languages, exciting and engaging millions of preschoolers across the world.  In addition to the broadcast episodes, this new look is also featured in a series of 40+ shorts running currently on Bob’s YouTube channel. You can catch the first new season of Bob the Builder now on Netflix.

The major difference is the animation.  The original series was stop motion and now the newest installments for the series is CG Animated! Bob also has a new home in the bustling metropolis of Spring City.  To stick with today's times, Bob now uses a  a computer for his building designs, but he still has all his trusty equipment to help!   Don't worry, you will still see him in the village of Fixham.
