  • While I understand not selling them and keeping all three versions together, to keep visual art in a box is unconscionable

  • The question about why People love him is actually easily answered. This global internet is FULL of things that depress us as long as we surf the algorithm. Just the human nature, laws of media industry and, first and foremost, the inhuman internet (bubble syndrome, economics of advertising, profit on hate speech & so on) do not often function in favor of human mental health. This is why the really pure at heart, pre- or post-web personas, pets (or just, phenomena), fascinate us even more so "these days". Bob's mentality (and show) is a perfect example for that. On this uber technisized , uber informing, uber opinionated media realm, which increasingly FORMS (!) our common thoughts and opinions (eg. anti-democratic, alt-right, political extremism, etc.) it is seldom, to come across something so puristic and without an elaborate agenda. The crafty/physical and creative aspect is important too, as it symbolizes a crucially purifying counterbalance to all the mental/psychological BS we have to go through on our daily algorithms. (Do your work more ethically, Jeffs, Marks & digital dictators of this new World order!!!) (Read on sociological phenomenon of "cottage core" for more) Just some vitalizing thoughts. Mental hygiene is a real thing! Stay safe & positive out here on the cyber-realm. And - God Bless* (*Bob's voice)))

    • Addendum: For everyone frustrated by the modern human and it's often dark birthings, I may also suggest, for a cleansing change of perspective and heart, watching "Love on the Spectrum". Truly inspiring to see the potential of pure humanity, revealed by this ("dis")ability (very ironically so)! Must watch imho.

  • 7:47 "JOEL" That made me very happy. Vargskelethor/Vinesauce Joel is my reason why Bob Ross is so iconic. Not with paint, not traditional art, not with some fancy software. We use the tool of the gods, Mario Paint.

  • Bob Ross just painted the same subject-matter over and over again ........... that's not being a great painter in the true definition. A great painter could paint anything and everything. He was very over-rated.

  • Why keep them in cardboard boxes? That seems like the lazy way to do things. How about working with investors to build a museum. Revenue from it can then be spent on environmental causes. Selling merch and Tweeting while those paintings suffocate in boxes is just weird and lazy.

  • They should sell the paintings and put the profits to charity if they dont want to sell them for their own profit which is a really nice thing but just sitting in boxes is kinda sad.

  • I remember watching him when I was a child - he made it look so easy to paint "happy mountains"! Jesus Christ is Coming Back! I’m not asking you to get religious - 2 minutes of your time: To be Saved just confess out loud to GOD and admit that you are a sinner in need of a Saviour and confess that you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins, was buried, and was raised back to Life on the third day. 1 Cor 15:1-4. GOD is listening to you and He will write your name down in His Book of Life so that you may enter Heaven.

  • he just gave untalented people a reason and technique to draw the most uncreative painting of all time. but why? is art about creation and joy? what is the point to painting 3000 painting almost with same technique and the same colors and somethings that from a distance it's supposed to look like a natural view? artistic gallery? kidding? he is intelligent enough to never does that, i give him a point for knowing his place and didn't do something to just ruin his self-steam.

  • I grew up with Bob Ross as my baby sitter, as well as antique roadshow, and Mr. Rodgers , but Bob truly inspired me to activate my creative mojo in not just painting but in every lil or big situation that I in countered in my life. But best of all creativity is just part of it, add a pinch of politeness, honesty, and a big dollup of Love. With those ingredients mixed, and applied in life the finished product is True Happiness and Joy. And if you spread that joy, and express happiness the people around you will get a solid dose. I am a better person because of Bob Ross and his joy of painting show, Antique Roadshow with its instilling hope, and Mr. Rodgers explaining life's situations and how best to deal with them in such a way that not only helps, but builds self esteem within yourself and those around you. Thank you God for giving us such amazing individuals and thank you Bob , Mr. Rodgers, and all at PBS.
