Disappointed with new voices

"We just purchased this item and when we got home and loaded it up, was very disappointed in the new voice they're using for Bob, Lofty and Spud! The video itself is great and they've introduced a new off-road 4x4 machine. But honestly, it just doesn't seem like a Bob the Builder without the main voices we're all used to."
Bob's Plan is to go PC in a big way

"First off, the voices of Bob and most/all the rest are different. Spud is British-- Farmer Pickles imports scarecrows?
Bob is an anti-development, tie-dye wearing environmentalist. Instead of showing the positive and negatives of large developments in Sunflower Valley, developers are shown as bad guys. Bob has a nightmare, complete with menacing music, as big buildings grow from the ground everywhere, obliterating the idyllic valley.
I love nature, and am for careful planning, but this is way over the top. And while reclycling is good, chanting "Reduce Recycle Reuse" cultishly is a bit too much for me. Overall this is really pretty heavy-handed politics for a kids show, and the producers should be ashamed."
Too much change in new series!

"We just could not get over the drastic changes in the voices. Bob, Spud, Lofty, & Mr. Bentley all had different voices than the original series and movies. Bob & Spud were especially difficult to listen to. This movie did not hold my children's attention the way the other Bob the Builder movies have. I'm sure it's because of the voices. The environmental message was a bit overdone, but we could even tolerate that if the voices weren't so different! I would NOT rebuy this movie knowing what I know now. We should have borrowed it from the library instead."
Bob builds, teaches, and saves the planet

"Not being a regular watcher/fan of Bob the Builder movies, I was not aware of the changed character voices. I first viewed the movie with my five-year-old nephew who is a Bob fan, and he did not notice the differences. We both enjoyed the movie and the lesson. It is a great first learning tool for children to understand about the environment and how they too are able to contribute to the preservation. I have since shown the movie to a group of 3-7 year olds in the community to teach about recycling. The showing was well attended and received. Each child walked away reciting the movie's mantra "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle." I recommend the whole family watching this film together. The teenagers might role their eyes at some of the antics, but they too will find themselves remembering the 3 Rs. I apologize in advance for you not being able to sleep due to Lofty, Scoop, and the Gang's chants of "Yes, We Can!""
