Bob the Builder says "Yes We Can"

On January 19 and 20th, the State Theatre presents Bob the Builder LIVE! in Spud's Big Mess (yes, Spud is indeed a talking potato). Bob the Builder has become a huge star in the kid's world, a worldwide phenomenon, if you will. Little kids everywhere own or instantly recognize the "Bob the Builder tool belt" or Bob's big yellow construction hat. In fact, it was recently pointed out to me that even President elect Obama is a Bob the Builder fan (even if he doesn’t know it). The catchphrase for Bob’s team of friends in response to the question “Can we fix it” has been “Yes we can” for a decade now, the same phrase that is now on a million Obama posters and desktops around the country. So, what it comes down to is that Bob’s lessons about the power of positive-thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork are for all ages. We could all use a little reminder about being a good neighbor and I think that’s why Bob’s popularity has remained intact, he’s just a good guy. And who doesn’t want to root for the good guy?

The State Theatre is located at 15 Livingston Avenue in New Brunswick, NJ. For information or to purchase tickets call 732-246-SHOW(7469) or visit
