"I love Bobby's World :) For people who haven't heard of this wonderful show, it was created by Howie Mandel & is about this little kid (Bobby of course) who just does regular stuff w/ his family, but it's always more exciting to him because he has such a big imagination. It was one of my favorite shows as a kid & I was so happy when I saw the DVD in the store. I wish it was a whole season, but at least this way it's less expensive (around $10.00 usually), & there is going to be other BW DVDs coming out. This DVD has 5 eps which are all really cute & funny, as I think every BW ep is. The eps include: 1) Uncle Ted's Excellent Adventure 2) Bobby's Tooth or Dare 3) Swim By Me 4) Fish Tales 5) Jets, Choo-Choos and CarsThe only thing wrong w/ this DVD (& the reason I only gave it 3 star) is that there are no extras whatsoever. I would've liked to know how Howie Mandel got the idea for Bobby, or they could've had maybe a behind the scenes thing showing the characters being drawn, but no, nothing like that. Also, there's no captioning. Hopefully there'll be stuff in the DVDs to follow. Other than that, the DVD's worth getting because it's very reasonably priced and this is a great show!"
Childhood all over again :)

"I loved Bobbys World as a kid. And i still do now. When a friend pointed this out to me on the net i went insane. I had been searching for the show on TV...but no one played it anymore. Its only about $13 canadian so its a great buy. If you have kids, get it for them and they can experience the great time we had while watching it.It comes with a scratch and sniff card. I tried to figue out the smell for a while...but then i relised the answer was at the bottom. The card is a joke, it says "[Answer: Cardboard]". (a early reviewer did not notice this). The DVD also includes Uncle Ted's adventure (i believe thats the title), which teaches kids how to get over the very common fear. Fear of the Dark. The DVD also includes the episode with the very popular "Fish Don't Stink" song. I'd suggest this to anyone with 13 buck lying around.The one down side is that the episodes are of the normal quality. No upgrades, so it doesn't use the capibility of the DVD."

"My son watched Bobby's World as a child and we enjoyed it right along with him. Howie is terrific as Bobby - journeying along with Bobby's imagination is quite a ride. Its a cute show for kids (my 2 and 4 year olds now watch it), although some of things you could get away with in 1990 you can no longer say in most cartoons (eg - Derek calling his brother Bobby stupid and a dweeb). I sit and watch the episodes over and over again - especially "Swim By Me" and the song "I was at the bottom of the pool..." and I'm not one to usually do that.Its an affordably priced, enjoyable program. I recommend it."
Bobby's World is an awesome place 2 visit

"I loved this cartoon as a kid, and I would watch it faithfully whenever it was on (after-school & weekends). I saw this while searching through the discount rack ($5.99) at the Best Buy across the street from my school and picked it up immediately. I'm happy that I did as about a week later I got pretty sick and laid in bed all day watching Bobby's World and it allowed me to laugh and reminisce, making feel worlds better in the process."
