      Mark Kistler's Imagination Station! That was it!



      I just Googled "art guy "yeaaah" just to see what I would get, and the first link was something about Office Space. "Space" triggered something in me and I happened to remember the name of the show.

        Bob Ross was good, but so was the guy who was also on painting.

        I forget his name, but he was this louder, Germanic-sounding guy

        The guy used to yell and bark his instructions, he sounded like he was some German Sergeant in World War II

        "UND NOW YOU VILL PAINT ZE COTTAGE! SCHNELL! SCHNELL!! VE DO NOT HAVE ALL DAY, PAINT ZE COTTAGE NOOOWWW!!!!!!"


        Patton Oswalt had a great bit about Bob Ross and also this guy, on his stand-up CD, Feelin' Kinda Patton. It's awesome.

          I used to watch this guy after all my kiddie shows went off--he was stark-raving calm, I loved it.

            i remember him ! i loved his hair. i always thought he was a talented person. a little tweaked, but talented. i watched a spoof about him recently on the boondocks. well, there was a character just like him. it was funny.

                "Joy of Painting" still plays here in Montreal every saturday at 2pm. I love watching it although Bob had this nicredibly relaxing voice. I tend to fall asleep!

                "Add a little touch of paint thinner"

                ...so many things he said over and over... but still, we love him

                  Man, I loved that show! Not only was it just cool to watch him completely effortlessly paint those amazing things, his voice was just perfect to lull me into a nice little after-school nap so I'd be nice and ready to go out and drink in high school!

                  happy little dave

                      Probably. That guy was like those holy men who have birds and chipmunks eating out of their hand.

                          What on earth will be the point of the game? Kill squirrels by throwing oval brushes at them?

                            I think it's a learn to paint game, using the DS touch screen, PC mouse, and Revolution's weird remote-control-shaped- control pad

                              It would've been funny if Bob Ross showed up for an episode with some braids. He'd have more hangtime than some women I know.

                                Only a little bit. *shrugs* It didnt appeal to me much. I could have probably aced a painting class now if I paid so much attention to that little shady tree being painted on!

                                And a Bob Ross video game?? Why use a painting program on that when youve got a lot of painting programs on the net to handle?

                                  My art teachers would always make fun of him.

                                      If you guys didn't know Mario Paint was a fun game back for the NES and really popular. This game might go will.
                                      I'm only 22, but why does this place make me feel old?

                                        yeah but now kids have paint programs on their computer and websites they can color things in like a coloring book etc.

                                          I still play Mario Paint to this day. BTW, it's on the Super NES.
