Bob Ross The Joy of Painting, S02, S03, S04, (1983) [MP4]|9.89 GB
The Joy of Painting was an American television show hosted by painter Bob Ross that taught its
viewers basic techniques for landscape oil painting. Although Bob Ross could complete a painting
in half an hour, the intent of the show was not to teach viewers speed painting. Rather, he
intended for viewers to learn certain techniques within the amount of time that the show was
allowed. The show lasted until 1994, a year before Ross’s death.
Broadcast by non-commercial public television stations, the show was first produced by WNVC in
Falls Church, Virginia, through the early-1980s, then WIPB in Muncie, Indiana from 1983 until
1994, and later by Blue Ridge Public Television in Roanoke, Virginia. Most of the series was
distributed by what is now American Public Television.
As of 2006, The Joy of Painting has been shown in many countries worldwide, such as Greek state
broadcaster ERT3, Turkish state broadcaster TRT (with the title Resim Sevinci), German television
(BR-Alpha), Discovery Real Time in the UK, NHK in Japan, EBS in South Korea and Once TV in
Mexico, ATV and ICable TV in Hong Kong, IRIB in Iran and the Colombian state channel Canal
The show continues to be broadcast in syndication on public television stations, and continues a
multi-million dollar spin-off business bearing Ross’s name that sells art accessories related to
the show. Re-runs are sometimes packaged under the title Best of The Joy of Painting.
