Bob the Builder Returns to CET

Bob the Builder airs Saturdays at 6:30am on ThinkTV16 and at 8:30am on CET. It also airs Sundays at 7am on ThinkTV16.

Bob the Builder ReturnsCan we build it? Yes we can! Bob the Builder, the beloved handyman, and his trusted team have returned to CET and ThinkTV with a brand new look. Packed with humor and fun, the series includes new characters and locations as well as charming stories that foster social-emotional growth and introduce STEM concepts for preschool-age viewers.

Bob the Builder airs at 8:30am Saturdays on CET and 6:30am on ThinkTV16 as well as 7am Sundays on ThinkTV16.

The newly retooled Bob the Builder series features Bob as well as Wendy, Bob’s smart and witty business partner, and Leo, his young and eager apprentice. Wendy is a whiz with electronics and often helps keeps the team organized and on schedule. Leo is energetic and sincere, but his overly-enthusiastic nature sometimes causes him to get a little distracted – which inevitably leads to chaos!

Bob’s loyal and devoted team of machines round out the team. They are sometimes good-natured and silly, and sometimes competitive and mischievous – just like real kids. They are all ready to leap into action, eager to help with the build, but usually hopelessly and comically make things worse. They always learn from their mistakes and work together as a team to fix whatever mess they’ve made.

The machine team includes Scoop, an enthusiastic digger with big ideas; Muck, a good-natured, sweet dumper; Lofty, a scientific-minded, over-thinking crane; Roley, a fussy, fastidious steam-roller; and Dizzy, a finicky but energetic cement mixer. New to the crew are Two-Tonne, a powerful truck who can pull anything; and Tiny, a construction crane and permanent fixture on Bob’s big builds in the city.

Also new to Bob the Builder: Maria Madison, the frenzied but visionary Mayor; Mr. Bentley, her bumbling executive assistant; Curtis, Leo’s dad and owner of the local service station; Chef Tattie, whose eccentricity and energy spice up everything he touches; and the Rockets, a fun-loving and enthusiastic sports team of kids. The series is based in the small town of Fixham, where Bob is dedicated to helping his community, but the team’s work has also expanded into the nearby vibrant and modern Spring City. 

Through animated stories, sing-along music videos, and short, live-action segments that comprise Bob the Builder, kids will discover that problem solving is about trying one’s best and if it doesn’t work the first time – try again. Friendship and teamwork are at the center of getting the job done!
