This Guy Had A Bob Ross Painting Party For His Birthday And It Was Incredible


 If you ever tuned into to PBS, then you definitely got a whiff of ArthurSesame Street, or Reading Rainbow.

But the real OG of Public Broadcasting is the man with the Afro, the hippie with a brush, the baddest painter of them all: Bob Ross. 

 Yes, the "happy cloud" painting boss, Bob Ross, ruled Public TV. And even if you never tried painting along with him, the dude's soothing voice and endless enthusiasm for painting was so hypnotic that you couldn't help but just sit and watch him, even if for just a few minutes, whenever he was on TV. 

For those in need of a refresher, the artist — who sadly passed away in 1995 at the age of 52 — hosted The Joy of Painting on PBS for 11 years.
