* {{Minimalism}}: Ross didn't paint in this style, but the show itself fits the bill. The background behind the canvas was uniformly dark black, to keep focus on the canvas. Bob Ross (or whoever else was painting that week) was uniformly the only person on the set during the entire runtime. The only props used were the painting tools Ross used, and the canvas. He was also noted for spending hours picking what to wear because [[DefiedTrope he didn't want]] [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece to date the episodes.]]

* 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, and 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.

** For the first several seasons, near the end of the show, Bob would briefly go over what you would need to begin the '''next''' week's painting. He stopped this after a few seasons, probably because, as he noted in a later show, the production order wouldn't necessarily match the air date order.

* AwesomeArt: Humorously {{invoked|Trope}} by Ross, noting that several art schools pooh-poohed his work but later grudgingly acknowledged that they were getting a ''lot'' more applications from people who'd been inspired by him.

''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]].
