Bob Ross returns to Twitch for 400-episode marathon

Twitch is gonna take your boredom and sadness and beat the devil out of it.


If you are feeling blue and things just haven’t gone your way in October, find a way to pull through to October 29, when Twitch will begin its Bob Ross Paint-a-Thon. Follow one of the most badass men that ever lived as he guides the world through 400 unique paintings while reminding us that were are loved and that there are no mistakes, only happy accidents.

Don’t forget to wash off your palette and pick up some bottles of Van Dyke Brown, Alizarin Crimson, Phthalo Blue, Cadmium Yellow, Midnight Black, Prussian Blue, Titanium White, Yellow Ochre, Dark Sienna, Bright Red, and Sap Green. You’ll need all of them to follow along with Bob as he teaches us that it’s not about how we brush the marks onto the canvas, but how the process makes us feel.

Fix up a cup (or 100) of hot cocoa and sit in with Bob as he paints in a marshy home for Clyde the frog, lets Peapod the pocket squirrel peek out of his shirt, spends time with Hoot the owl, cuddles with a baby raccoon, nurses a set of baby robins back to health, and moves in with a pack of the cutest goddamn deer you’ve ever seen.

The best part is that you can spend this time with Bob and 40,000 of his closest Twitch chat friends as we all learn some of life’s most valuable lessons. If you don’t have any friends, make friends with a tree! As Bob always says, “Just go out and talk to a tree. Make friends with it. There's nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend. Trees cover up a multitude of sins.”

This marathon hasn’t even started and I’m already caught up in a whirlwind of emotion. The healing begins October 29 on the official Bob Ross Twitch Channel.
