Bob the Builder Gets It Built!
"Bob the Builder" is a legendary children's animated television series. It was created by Keith Chapman, who more recently created "PAW Patrol." Here we have Bob the Builder coloring pages.

The plot of each "Bob the Builder" episode involves Bob and his team engaging in renovations and constructions. Along the way, they resolve their conflicts and get on with the job.
Bob has a catchphrase. When faced with a task, Bob asks, "Can we fix it?" The others respond, "Yes we can!"
"Bob the Builder" has a very popular theme song which hit No. 1 in the UK and sold a million copies.
"Bob the Builder" has changed a lot over the years. It debuted in 1998 and continues in production as of 2018.
The original voice of Bob the Builder was Neil Morrissey. Lee Ingleby from "Harry Potter" replaced Morrissey in 2014 and has voiced him since.

A spin-off series, "Project Build It," came along in 2005.
For the US version of "Project Build It," they used completely different voice actors for the characters, which makes it a bit confusing when you switch back and forth between the series.
The original "Bob the Builder" series ended in 2012.
However, Mattel then bought the rights and created a new series that premiered on 1 September 2015.
Mattel updated all of the characters. This page of Bob the Builder coloring pages focuses mostly on these new Bob the Builder characters, not the original Bob the Builder character.

Many fans are partial to the original "Bob the Builder" series. There was a lot of anger when the characters and format changed in 2015.
The change from stop-motion animation to CGI also did not please everyone.
However, updating the characters and format helped to make "Bob the Builder" more accessible and enabled the production company to show more elaborate plots. Stop-motion animation is very time-consuming and limits what can be shown.
