Shame the new voice of Captain :campion  had to be introduced to the kids T.V role though one first.

Lee Ingleby just really wanted the paycheck on this one.

I used to love the original version, when they still used stop motion animation.

Why did they have to change it? That looks horrible :(

Blame Mattel, wanting tons money and they fired all of the original voice actors.

Actually Rackstraw remained with Campion through the entire run though given how he voiced a bunch of construction vehicles in a show about work first, I think he adapted well into Watership Down years later since he’s now playing a role where his character is also into work but under the rule of a one eyed rabbit. Or do you mean new voice of Campion because he’s voicing the cartoon series version and not the film version?

I don’t get why Bob needed to look realistic for the 2010’s but I can recommend a great British YouTube person? He’s James A Williams and he goes into great detail on this Bad ReBoot, CGI Fireman Sam and the Postman Pat continuation of their various problems.

I think Magic is talking about Lee Ingleby, who is voicing Campion in the BBC/Netflix miniseries and is also voicing Bob in the reboot (while Rackstraw only worked on the original version of Bob the Builder).

I'll probably check out this YouTube channel; the Postman Pat reboot is also really terrible...

Well he also is an actor who does adult TV and films.

So is the current voice of Scoop from the rebooted Bob The Builder, his name is Blake Harrison from the UK show The Inbetweeners.
