The official press notes for the new Bob the Builder US YouTube Channel follow:

The iconic kids character Bob the Builder is returning to PBS in November with beautiful, updated CGI-animation, a brand new look for the series and its namesake, Bob, and Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt voicing one of the lead roles—Wendy. Ahead of the television launch, HIT Entertainment, a division of Mattel, will welcome back Bob with a brand new Bob the Builder US YouTube channel that will launch August 7th that will feature the release of 40-plus mini adventures leading up to the TV debut. The first one, featuring the new look of Bob and the series for the very first time, is a fantastic sing along to the iconic “Bob the Builder” theme song (“Can We Fix IT?”—a #1 UK pop music chart topper). I wanted to see if you might be interested in covering the news of HIT Entertainment’s launching a refreshed Bob the Builder US YouTube channel featuring all new content featuring the new look and feel of the series in the lead up to the TV debut this Fall. Please say “Yes We Can!”

The new-look Bob is still the same Bob that audiences know and love. His denims might have been replaced with a hi-vis jacket but his chunky boots, yellow hard hat and checked shirt all remain, ensuring TV’s best-loved builder remains just as recognizable as ever. With his trusty tool belt now jam-packed with all manner of handy kit, Bob is ready to go… No project is too big, no problem too hard to solve!

No job is too big or small for Bob and his team, as they approach every job with positivity, enthusiasm and their catch phrase “Can we build it? Yes we can!” Bob and his team, including business partner Wendy and teenage apprentice builder Leo, work across the bustling metropolis of Spring City and nearby town of Fixham. Bob’s crew of talking vehicles includes digger scoop, digger/dumper Muck and mobile crane Lofty. And the show’s young viewers are made to feel like part of the team too as they follow their fun stories which bring construction to life. Bob the Builder has been exciting and engaging millions of youngsters all over the world for the past 16 years, teaching teamwork and valuable life lessons through his entertaining antics. However the new-look Bob is set to take this iconic series to a whole new level!
