Hi, I’m Emily, one of the producers who made this video. I also shot and edited it! 1) Yes, that is SpongeBob music. 2) Fun fact, I had never watched Bob Ross before making this video. #happylittleaccident 3) BTW, for those of you who didn’t make it to the end of the video… a selection of his paintings will appear in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. nyti.ms/2xIsshb

I'm 33. When i was a kid I used to watch his shows in its entirety. Even though as a kid i have the attention span of a nat I just loved watching him paint. He had such a calming voice and you wanted to see what he was going to create. My dad then started watching it with me. We're this random middle eastern family that loved watching Bob

Today I found an original bob ross painting hanging on my grandmas living room wall. No joke. My sister pointed at the trees and said “those look like bob ross trees” and we looked in the corner to see ross written with a personal note written to my grandma from Bob ross on the back. I have been looking at this painting for the past 18 years of my life and WE HAD NO FCKING IDEA THAT IT WAS A BOB ROSS PAINTING UNTIL NOW IM SHOOK

They should sell some, and then use the money to build a museum so the paintings don't sit in boxes

Was I the only one who cringed when the lady opened the box of his paintings and saw that they were just stacked on top of one another? You’d think they’d be individually wrapped to help preserve them.

I can’t believe the caretakers of the thousands of Bob Ross paintings had done nothing but simply left them in boxes in a storage room. I mean... WTF?? Are they idiots? Do they not get how much people would have loved to see them?? I mean, c’mon you people. It took the friggin’ Smithsonian to get you to come to your senses and display them? What is wrong with them? Can’t they put the remaining paintings in a local museum or convert their current space into one?? Why would they hide these things in boxes when people all over the world would come there and pay good money to see them?? Duhhhhhhh!!! The office staff at Bob Ross Inc. didn’t seem like the sharpest knives in the drawer.

I love him. He didn’t like people because they are inherently evil and he fought in the Vietnam war. That was enough hate for him!

I don't get why they're not sold. I know it's not like him to try to make money, but paintings are made to be admired. Not kept in boxes for no one to ever see.

The only way to get a real Bob Ross painting is to break into Bob Ross inc. And steal em all. I think it would be a bit harder to break into the Smithsonian museum unless you're a world class thief

WAIT A MINUTE!!!! The one marked as TV was the okay version not the most beautiful painting? So we were seeing his OK version not the EVEN MORE STUNNING ONE?! That's just incredible. (Edit) I love the employees. They're so wonderful.

I was in Chicago a free weeks ago and got to see four of his paintings by complete accident. It was the first time they had ever been shown in a museum and I cried on the spot. resources.depaul.edu/art-museum/exhibitions/Pages/new-age-new-age.aspx

I don't know what is wrong with these people, yeh maybe he wouldn't want to sell them but at least take care of them. What's your plan? Leave them in a room forever? I'm sure he would have wanted that, maybe it's better to get rid of them than to just hide them forever.

It never occurred to you to sell them? Seeing that you have no catalog and no archive process I find it more likely that you are actually selling them and keeping the money yourself
