Call me a Howie Mandel fan, but I used to get a kick out of Bobby’s World, despite being aged out of the show when it originally aired. The show had a unique spin on the childish misadventure theme, all spawned via Bobby’s wild imagination, and it really seemed to celebrate childhood more than any other show I could (or can) think of.
The show is now available on Amazon, and I just wanted to make sure the fact didn’t go unnoticed. Episodes are also available through Amazon Instant Video. Check out more info below.

Bobby’s World invites viewers into the comical and intuitive mind of Bobby Generic, a not-so-typical suburban 4-year-old, whose overactive imagination leads him into one hilariously daring adventure after another – all told from his unique, pint-sized perspective. Originally airing on FOX Kids Network in the U.S. from 1990 through 1998 as well as in more than 65 countries worldwide, the multiple Emmy- nominated classic cartoon series springs from the creative mind of Howie Mandel, comedian and host of the blockbuster game show “Deal Or No Deal,” who voices both Bobby and his father, Howard Generic. Mandel also kicks off each episode with a live-action introduction. Now a top-rated offering on Moonscoop’s Kabillion channel, Bobby’s World centers on everyday issues about growing up, providing very funny insight into how children strive to creatively solve life’s challenges.
