The Nature World of Captain Bob
In 2007, I wrote about Captain Bob! and the influence he's had on me since I was a kid. I would get up at the crack of dawn (5 a.m., thank you very much) to watch his show, The Nature World of Captain Bob. I would have my pencil, crayons and paper on hand and follow along. He never talked down to the kids watching the show. I loved drawing and how he made you feel that ANYONE can draw (a belief that I still hold to this day).
Captain Bob made a tremendous impact on me as a kid and I'm flooded with memories as I write this. I have been searching for copies of his tv show for years now. Tonight, I have found my Holy Grail! A kind soul has posted these to youtube:
The funny thing is, I remember this episode clear of day and I probably saw this in the late 70's or early 80's.
I really didn't think that I would ever see an episode again. Whoever posted this, thank you. Thank you so very, very much. You made a little redhead girl very happy.
