YMMV / Bob the Builder

  • Broken Base: The original British version vs the American re-dub.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song, full stop.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: It's no secret that the programme shares a catchphrase with Barack Obama. What's amusing is that Obama's rival, Republican John McCain, used the concept of 'Joe the Plumber' to represent the typical, hardworking American and had a supportive campaigner named 'Tito the Builder'. There's no evidence either of these was an intentional joke about Obama's catchphrase. Hence this- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1GHTnb0KT8
  • Memetic Mutation: "Can we fix it? Yes, we can!"
  • Most Annoying Sound: Lofty's British voice. Dear god. It gets even MORE annoying in the Licensed Game, if you can believe it.
    Wendy: Don't worry, Lofty! This way, hedgehogs.
  • Periphery Demographic: Oh yes. So much of a one that the characters actually got to the top of the UK singles charts with the theme song and again with their version of Mambo No. 5. They also achieved #1 and #2 in Australia.
  • Signature Laugh: Travis' funny "ho ho ho" laugh.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks:
    • When the show changed from stop-motion to CGI.
    • The 2015 redesign is hated across the board.
      • Also hated is the replacement of the entire voice cast. The US dub is actually made in Canada (granted, much of the cast is well-known Canadian VAs from Ocean Group, but still).
  • Uncanny Valley:
    • CGI Bob looks... wrong.
    • Bob's 2015 redesign just looks creepy. Wendy and most of the others look fine but Bob himself looks weird.
