Painter Bob Ross Gets Remixed in ‘Happy Little Clouds’
Iconic artist Bob Ross, who died in 1995, once again puts brush to canvas in a remix courtesy of the folks at PBS who brought us Mr. Rogers’ ‘Garden of Your Mind.’ Happy little clouds and trees, anyone?
Ross, of course, hosted the long-running show ‘The Joy of Painting’ on PBS, and was widely known for his overwhelming positivity and gentle, quiet demeanor. (Unlike that curmudgeonly child-hating Mr. Wizard.) His ability to paint landscapes in record time was mighty impressive too.
This is the second installment in the Symphony of Science series by John Boswell, and, like the Mr. Rogers remix which came before, it uses old footage that’s been heavily auto-tuned and set to new music.
Boswell once again creates a happy, buoyant tune that’s guaranteed to give you a warm, fuzzy feeling. Although, if we’re being totally honest, we could probably do without the part where Ross advises us to “make love to the canvas.” That notwithstanding, it sure is good to see him once again.
