When the fuck did Bob the builder grow up???

He even has a mans voice now. What the hell? Last time I watched it he was small!!!

Bob the Builder has always been a grown up! He used to be voiced by Neil Morrisey.

Are you talking about the redesign?
It happened when Hit sold the rights to Rainmaker Entertainment

SardineJam Tue 30-Aug-16 19:11:44

I really don't like the made over Bob and the new toys that have followed!

Jasonandyawegunorts Tue 30-Aug-16 19:12:45

The evil Mattel company makes the toys now, they no doubt had a hand in the redesign.

He's always been an adult. Any fool knows you don't put a child in charge of diggers and rollers and other stuff I can't remember. What was Lofty again?

AverageGayLad Tue 30-Aug-16 19:14:01

Bob was always a man confused. And Wendy was his object of desire.

A crane. Lofty the crane.

Jasonandyawegunorts Tue 30-Aug-16 19:14:43

Lofty is a truck crane

Are you sure you've always been watching Bob the builder?

Hassled Tue 30-Aug-16 19:22:30

A crane, thank you. Takes a real man to tell a crane what to do.

I'm still recovering from the travesty that is Fireman Sam these days. Here's what he should look like and what he does look like now. It's sick and wrong.

Have you every come across French Bob? Bob le Bricoleur, he goes on holiday a lot. And his cat is called Sardine.

TiggyD Tue 30-Aug-16 19:27:35

It is shit now. Hard to imagine what these people are thinking. "That's hugely successful. Let buy it and change everything!"

Soubriquet Tue 30-Aug-16 19:28:59

I'm disappointed by pingu now days.

You used to be able to understand the "warks"

DS is obsessed. He almost goes into orbit at all the vehicles.

They are the most dangerous machines in the world though. How they're allowed onto a building site is beyond me. They're an industrial accident in waiting. Constantly dropping bricks everywhere or knocking down walls.

And Bob just sighs and doesn't even give them a verbal warning!

And I think Leo must be on some sort of training scheme, as he doesn't seem to know how to do anything.

MrsJoeyMaynard Tue 30-Aug-16 19:34:38

Maybe Bob's just been on a big diet and got all skinny?

Agreed. I often wonder the same thing about the engines on Thomas and Friends. The amount of accidents and near misses they have is ludicrous. But always it's "luckily no one was hurt". Yeah, right. They've just edited out the ambulances so that the children watching aren't upset.

Completely misread that. My childhood is now ruined.

Soubriquet Tue 30-Aug-16 20:59:00

I gotta know what you mis read that as

TotallySpies17 Tue 30-Aug-16 21:01:35

I hate the new look Bob the Builder. It's so wrong sad

FatalFemme Tue 30-Aug-16 21:02:57

Ahem. Wanks.

You'll never look at pingu the same again. 🐧

Soubriquet Tue 30-Aug-16 21:11:30


WhatamessIgotinto Tue 30-Aug-16 21:49:01

Is this him now? Clearly the REAL Bob is on the left but what the actual fuck have they done? I'm still reeling from when they made Thomas all up to date. Fucking atrocious!
