#94 Bobby’s World Had Some Very… “Unique” Characters.

Little Bobby Generic had quite a childhood on a show that ran for 80 episodes worth of entertainment. Bobby’s World had a variety of characters, all worthy of a mention but a few in particular stood out. When you look back, Bobby’s Uncle Ted immediately comes to mind. From the looks of things, Uncle Ted was bumming off of his sister and her husband, living and breathing on their dime. On top of being deadweight, the man gave off a very creepy vibe. No grown man should find that much joy in constantly giving a little boy noogies, it’s just not normal. Then there was Bobby’s mother, Martha Generic who had the heaviest North Central American English accent you’ve ever heard. Many have noticed the fact that she is basically the cartoon version of Sarah Palin. Really, it’s remarkable how much Martha’s gee gollys, gosh darns, and don’t ‘cha knows sound just like Mrs. Palin herself. On top of having interesting characters, the show had Howie Mandel! Howie has changed a lot visually since the 1990s. The long, curly locks that he used to wear have ceased to exist. Many didn’t know that he hosted Deal or No Deal because now he has a shiny, bald head. Those who watched Bobby’s World tend to appreciate everything Howie & company had to offer. A few years ago there were even talks of a comeback; but being that there are no new episodes, it seems as if there was no deal.
