|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Bob Dog is a large brown dog full of curiosity and excitement.
When he first arrived in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, he often wore a cage over his head when he became frightened or to prevent any misbehavior. This did not always prevent problems as, on his first day in Make-Believe, Bob Dog ate all of the pies from Lady Elaine Fairchilde's pie restaurant. Intimidated by Bob Dog, King Friday XIII ordered that he go to Someplace Else where Donkey Hodie helped him become tame.
As a very energetic dog, Bob Dog enjoys staying active in such ways as playing football, playing fetch, and dancing. He has even danced alongside the Junior Tamburitzans. Unfortunately, on one occasion, Bob Dog's activity got the best of him when he fell from atop the oak tree as he was retrieving a lost ball.
In addition to his fondness for dancing, Bob Dog has also expressed himself artistically through acting in the opera A Granddad For Daniel as well as the Neighborhood play Josephine the Short-Neck Giraffe.
Operas and Plays
Bob Dog's appearances in the Neighborhood operas and plays include the following parts:
The Fall From the Tree
Although it is unknown if any real-life injuries were sustained in Episode 1486 when Bob Dog fell from the tree, to the viewers at home the fall appears to have been quite forceful -- so much so that the foot of the costume can be seen flying off as Bob Dog hits the ground.
Bob Dog's Name
Lady Elaine Fairchilde commonly refers to Bob Dog as "Bobby Doggy."
