''The Joy of Painting'' is a half-hour art instruction show that ran from 1983 to 1994. Hosted by Bob Ross, noted for his legendarily cheery manner and soft, friendly voice, the show aimed to teach people painting techniques in the amount of time given. Ross worked in oil paints and taught a method called "wet-on-wet painting", where the canvas would be coated with wet white paint and other colors would be laid over it, allowing for a variety of blending techniques. The show was very minimalist, using only a black background and two camera positions. Due to his time spent being stationed in Alaska in the Air Force, all of Ross' paintings were of nature, mostly forests or mountain valleys.

Despite ending many years ago, the show has [[https://www.twitch.tv/bobross an official Twitch account]] that occassionally has repeated showings or marathons of the show, as well as [[https://www.youtube.com/user/BobRossInc an official YouTube channel]].

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first season had a number of differences from later seasons. Ross had a fuller beard and wore large glasses, which made him look older than he was. His voice was also a little less relaxed and more instructive and loud in tone at first. He had a bizarre tendency to overuse the adjective "almighty". Also, the show had background music and occasional cut edits. This was a pretty big difference from the real time and music-less version most people remember.

** Ross wasn't too far off from the image in the linked trope page, as he once told of how he would release the animals he helped out into the wilds around his home in Floria, but they would stick around anyway, always coming back to his house. He said he would often leave food out for them.
