For the upcoming new CGI-animated series launching on Channel 5’s Milkshake from 1st September 2015 at 7.20am, Bob the Builder has been given his biggest re-vamp in the show’s history with a modern look and feel. The new series will see Bob the Builder continuing its long tradition of telling fun and interesting stories through positivity and teamwork with exciting characters, relatable locations and an aspirational hero. The new-look Bob is still the same Bob that audiences know and love though. His dungarees might have been replaced with a hi-vis jacket but his chunky boots, yellow hard hat and checked shirt all remain, ensuring TV’s best-loved builder remains just as recognizable as ever. With his trusty tool belt now jam-packed with all manner of handy kit, Bob is ready to go… No project is too big, no problem too hard to solve.

All of the show’s core characters return for the new series, including Bob’s business partner Wendy and popular vehicles Scoop, Muck and Lofty. Other fans’ favorites, Roley and Dizzy, also remain but there will be new faces for viewers to meet – including Leo (an apprentice builder), Mayor Maria Madison, energetic young sports club members ‘The Spring City Rockets’ and two new machines: a heavy-lifting low-loader truck called ‘Two Tonne’ and a tower crane called Tiny.

Bob also has a new home in the bustling metropolis of Spring City – a glimmering and rapidly-developing modern urban skyline of steel and glass, complete with its own docks, a diverse population and strips of shops and restaurants. But his switch to the big city doesn’t signal the end for his traditional home in Fixham, where he’s still going to be building and carrying out smaller scale jobs throughout the series.

As well as a new look; the voice cast has also been renewed in the latest development in the show’s history with Lee Belying (Harry Potter) taking on the voice of Bob, Joanne Froggatt (Downtown Abbey) the voice of Wendy, Blake Harrison (Inbetweeners) the voice of Scoop and Jacob Scipio (CBeebies) the voice of new character Leo.

Bob the Builder has been broadcast in over 175 countries and translated into 40 languages, exciting and engaging millions of youngsters across the world. However, the new-look Bob is set to reach even further with 40-plus mini adventures coming to YouTube for fans to enjoy.

Christopher Keenan, VP Global Content & Executive Producer at HIT Entertainment Limited (“HIT Entertainment”) said: “Bob is the most popular builder in TV history and we’re excited to be taking him to the next level. While the new series retains the emotional warmth that has always given Bob the Builder a firm place in the hearts of young viewers, it’s now packed with more humour than ever before.

The sky really is the limit for Bob, Scoop and the other members of the team and we’re looking forward to seeing where their adventures take us in the future.”
