If you ever tuned into to PBS, then you definitely got a whiff of Arthur, Sesame 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.
OKAY WAIT MY PARTY IS GOING VIRAL. EVERYONE. GO TO UR ART SUPPLY STORE. BUY A CANVAS AND PAINT SUPPLIES AND HAVE SOME FUN!! BOB ROSS IS GOAT— Chris Nervegna (@Brovegna) February 6, 2017
