    Hi, I’m Emily, one of the producers who made this video. I also shot and edited it! 1) Yes, that is SpongeBob music. 2) Fun fact, I had never watched Bob Ross before making this video. #happylittleaccident 3) BTW, for those of you who didn’t make it to the end of the video… a selection of his paintings will appear in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. nyti.ms/2xIsshb

      Emily Rhyne I hope they doubled your pay after this. I’m crazy critical of the editors I work with mostly because that’s where I first made a name for myself. Such a fantastic pace. Awesome cut.

    So unfortunate that all of bobs paintings are just sitting in boxes upon boxes. I would call that selfishness rather then being hung up appreciated by people who love Ross


    I've always loved the not meme but like the whatever you want to call it where it's like "Bob Ross would have loved Minecraft because you can do whatever you want in the world. Every tree could have a friend, your river could have a waterfall, you get to decide."

    They should open a museum and use the proceeds for art programs for kids or the less fortunate.

  • TheJjcczz

    The point of the show was to teach YOU how to paint, selling the paintings just wouldn’t be in the spirit of the show

    It would be nice if you made a gallery with all of the paintings, then donated all the earnings to an environmental charity so save the landscapes that he loved so much

    I've already asked the producer this, but if anyone else knows please chime in...I was wondering why they didn't mention his son's Morgan and Steven? Where are they in the scheme of things?

    I think he was trying to prevent his art work from becoming commercialized and upper crust. Like many of the great artists whose art was appropriated by the elitist art world. This way, it’s small, and humble and accessible to the every person. Just like he painted on public television, accesible to all

    LOL....I used to be a loyal fan to Bob Ross' PBS painting shows, when I was desparate to solve my thesis questions about partial differential equations. I just found at that time his shows were so soothing to my brain fog caused by all the crazy math. I had no idea he could become so big later. BTW, why did ppl rarely get to appreciate great artists until they passed away????? That might be the reason why I chose my career with math/finance over art. I'm short-sighted and only live for present. 😭😂

    I remember seeing Bob on tv when I was younger and I was like “who’s this” I wasn’t very interested but I still watched it idk if it was his soothing voice or the way he painted but I stayed and at the time I was around 6 or 7 so I was looking for cartoons not Bob Ross

    After I had surgery and had to stay overnight, apparently the only thing I would watch was Bob Ross. According to my dad, I was just giggling like a toddler. I don't remember it too well, but on my instagram, I posted a picture of the show with the caption "Bob Ross is awesome." Honestly, the only thing I remember from that night was just pure joy.
