Remodeled ‘Bob The Builder’ Back On CET


Bob’s back! Tell the kids!

The “Bob the Builder” children’s show has returned to WCET-TV (8:30 a.m. Saturdays, Channel 48) with new voices and new episodes.

The popular handyman has grabbed his hard hat and laced up his boots for more construction projects – with the help of his business partner Wendy, apprentice Leo and their trucks and machines.

Last year Mattel rebuilt the British show, hiring actor Lee Ingleby (Stan Shunpike in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”) to replace Neil Morrissey as the voice of Bob.

If you don’t have young children or grandchildren, here’s a link to CET's Bob the Builder page.

John Kiesewetter joined the WVXU news team as a TV/Media blogger on July 1 2015, after nearly 30 years covering local and national broadcasting for The Cincinnati Enquirer. He’ll be posting news about Greater Cincinnati TV, radio and movies; updating your favorite former local TV/radio personalities or stars who grew up here; and breaking news about national TV, radio and media trends. You’ll also learn about Cincinnati’s rich broadcasting history.
