  • This is a Bob Ross painting.”

  • Bob Ross —”

  • Narrator: — is one of the most iconic American painters

  • of the 20th century.

  • He’s best known for his perm, personality and

  • landscape paintings.

  • The problem is, no one knows where they are.

  • “I’ll be your host as we experience

  • the joy of painting.”

  • GPS: “In 800 feet, turn left onto McClearen Road.”

  • There are more than 1,000 Bob Ross paintings in the world.

  • But if you want to buy a Bob Ross, you can’t.

  • And that doesn’t mean people haven’t tried.

  • A lot have, and a lot’s been written about it too,

  • because frankly, it doesn’t make sense.

  • In a 1991 article in The New York Times,

  • Bob said he had completed nearly 30,000 paintings.

  • So when this guy wanted to buy one for his brother,

  • he didn’t think it would be a problem.

  • He couldn’t find one at an auction,

  • in a gallery, on the internet.

  • We don’t know.”

  • And sure, there are

  • a lot of paintings out there inspired by Bob Ross.

  • Tap tap, tap, tap roll —”

  • But theyre not the real thing.

  • So it made us wonder: Where could

  • a collection of paintings, worth likely millions

  • of dollars, possibly have gone?

  • “I started in 2017.

  • They were organized pretty well.

  • But it was kind of one of those things where

  • it’s like we need to take all this out and like figure out

  • what is here.

  • And I was terrified of touching these paintings.

  • I was like, ‘These are worth more than me.’”

  • So that’s where all the paintings are.

  • Not climate-controlled.

  • We got, we got

  • them safe in a room packed away —”

  • Organized fairly well —”

  • Definitely not white glove service.”

  • They don’t plan on selling them.

  • Wasn’t really Bob’s thing.

  • It actually has never occurred to us.

  • I guess I wouldn’t even know how to answer that question,

  • because weve never even really talked about it.”

  • The show went like this:

  • It was 26 minutes long, unedited,

  • and you never saw the finished painting before you started.

  • He did 31 series, each being 13 programs,

  • each having three versions.

  • That’s a lot of paintings.”

  • Not many people know that Bob actually

  • completed each painting three times: one before the show,

  • one during the show and one after the show.

  • Which is why there’s so many of them.

  • He would writebookon the really, really good one.

  • He would mark one of themTV,’ and that was the slightly

  • not great one.

  • And then the third one would be markedKowalski,’

  • for my mother.

  • “I don’t like this being a movie star.

  • I’m old, you know?

  • I know you want to know what that young guy was running

  • around with this old woman.

  • Guess what?

  • Bob and I used to be the same age.”

  • “I’d like to introduce you to my partner

  • and longtime friend, Annette Kowalski.

  • Annette, welcome to the show.”

  • Thanks, Bob.”

  • Annette was involved in lots of different art forms

  • earlier than Bob Ross.”

  • And I always encouraged her.”

  • No painting is complete without a few daisies.

  • So let’s add some daisies: I want nice, clean white.

  • I made all the shirts he wears on TV.”

  • She also discovered Bob Ross, pretty much by accident.

  • When Walt and Annette’s oldest son died,

  • Walt signed Annette up for classes with the

  • TV painter Bill Alexander.

  • You and I, with all our creative power,

  • we will create a better tomorrow.

  • I love you!”

  • But Bill wasn’t teaching anymore.

  • So they got a guy named Bob Ross instead.

  • Well, five days of classes with this unknown Bob Ross

  • in Clearwater, Fla.

  • Let’s just plan this out like so, itll all come together.

  • Let it workthere.”

  • The first day, I took the class with Bob,

  • I was so mesmerized by Bob that I couldn’t paint.”

  • “I had a positive feeling about him when I saw him.”

  • And it turned out to be a good call.

  • Bob eventually moved in with Walt and Annette.

  • And now they own almost all of his paintings.

  • That is a Bob Ross paintingbecause somebody

  • told me that it was.”

  • Right now, I can pretty much recognize a Bob Ross painting.”

  • “A lot of the public,

  • they think that any painting that

  • has a tree and a mountain must be a Bob Ross painting.”

  • “I’m really at a tree- and mountain-type person.”

  • Theyre like sure that he’s the only one that’s ever

  • painted a landscape before.”

  • There are some telltale signs as to

  • whether or not a painting is a real Bob Ross.

  • Oh Bob, he wanted

  • no sign of people.

  • I don’t know why, he didn’t like people,

  • I guess.

  • He touched that tree one time, one stroke.

  • And the clouds are not Bob Ross clouds.”

  • It’s like describing the taste of chocolate.”

  • This has been labored over.”

  • My father did have to talk to a woman once,

  • many years ago, who had purchased a painting that was

  • not a Bob Ross painting.

  • She was just devastated.”

  • Bob is such a legend and become

  • such a big factor in people’s lives.”

  • For our social media, we have like a fancy quote on Fridays

  • with like a nice picture

  • and then like a more casual quote on Wednesdays.

  • Maybe there’s a stone right here.

  • So I’ll put a little stone on, see —”

  • There’s a little stone —”

  • Maybe it’s got a little friend named Harold.”

  • This is Harold the stone, right here —”

  • And like, sometimes I just sneak those in on

  • the casual Wednesday quotes

  • just because they make me really happy.”

  • We are here for fans of Bob Ross.

  • Like if they call us,

  • were going to listen.

  • And sometimes the calls go on for a very long time.”

  • You pick up, and theyre like, ‘There’s that squirrel.

  • I was telling you aboutit’s back today.

  • It’s just a nice little, nice little phone calls.”

  • And that’s what the staff at Bob Ross Inc. does.

  • It’s 1-800 BOBROSS.

  • Yay us, right?”

  • They package and ship Bob’s line of paint supplies,

  • and largely manage his modern-day image.

  • This lady painted Bob onto her lips, painting a painting

  • and then her nail is held up to his arm

  • and her nail has a tiny clear palette on it.”

  • “I mean —”

  • Even though there hasn’t been a new show in over 20 years,

  • Bob’s become a modern icon.

  • Is Bob Ross —”

  • Bob Ross —”

  • Bob Ross —”

  • Bob Ross —”

  • Ross —”

  • Ross —”

  • Ross —”

  • Ross?”

  • The guy with the hair!”

  • That round hair became like a thing he could not drop.”

  • Let’s paint in a few little, happy trees there.”

  • And were going to put a happy, little bush right down

  • over here.”

  • Ever since Bob Ross appeared on Twitch in 2014,

  • he’s gone viral.

  • “A lot of times, I almost had a heart attack

  • when there was 30 seconds to go

  • and he’s starting on the big trees.

  • That’s my director and were getting low on time.

  • And I do something likemaybe this old tree

  • fell down, this old tree just fell down.

  • It was tired.”

  • This pain goes back in real quickno pressure.”

  • He wanted to sort of be a symbol of happiness.

  • You know, the idea of socks and toasters and waffle makers,

  • he would have loved.”

  • And that’s all you can buythe paintings are still

  • off limits.

  • It never occurred to us to sort of change the whole concept

  • that were not in it to sell paintings.”

  • We can’t even explain fully what this Bob Ross

  • thing is, you know?

  • Were asked that all the time.

  • We can give you numerous thoughts on that.

  • But the sum total of it

  • it’s just the, it’s Bob Ross, it’s the persona.”

  • “I don’t knowyou could probably

  • answer that question better.

  • Why are you here?”

  • That’s a great question —”

  • You tell me.”

  • People come into it,

  • and theyre like, ‘Oh, it’s just

  • like this guy with this afro and it’s

  • like so silly, and he paints like these landscapeswhatever.’

  • And then they watch it.

  • And theyre like, ‘Oh my Godwhat — I actually

  • really love this.’

  • And then they watch like 50 episodes.”

  • “I can only go back to that first day

  • that I was in the class with him.

  • And I feel like the whole world now

  • is seeing what I saw that first day.”

  • They were ecstatic.

  • Theyre like, ‘This is totally going to be an exhibit.’

  • And then they invited us out to the Smithsonian, to look,

  • it’s going to be in the American, American history

  • youre so scared.

  • The Museum of Modern America —”

  • It’s the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

  • Say out loud, ‘Your work will never hang in a museum. Bob —’”

  • Well, maybe it will.

  • But probably not the Smithsonian —”

  • Because why, Bob?”

This is a Bob Ross painting.”
