Rounding out the cast is Charity James as Bobby's sister, Kelly, who inexplicable has a Valley Girl lilt. Kevin Smets is Bobby's brother, Derek, and Edie McClurg (Valerie's Family, The Life & Times of Tim) is scary Aunt Ruth. Finally, Tino Insana (Three Amigos, Barnyard) is the boisterous Uncle Ted.
Many shows from childhood do not hold up over time, and seem silly or ridiculous when viewed again years later. Bobby's World is not one of those instances. For those who see Mandel only as a game show host, it will be thrilling to remember when he was a genuinely funny comic. Each episode has several chuckle-worthy moments, and no one should be disappointed by shelling out money for Bobby's World.
Because of the print on demand nature of this release, it seems money has not been spent to remaster the picture and sound. That really doesn't matter. In fact, that may just add to the charm, because viewers get to watch Bobby's World in the same quality it originally ran in. There are also no bonus features, but isn't reliving old memories and finding they are just as great as you thought they were bonus enough?
Bobby's World is available via streaming episodes on Amazon.com, or on sale by season, or as a complete series set, containing all 81 episodes, now. Pick up a copy today.
