Bob the Builder is the titular character of the British television series of the same name. Bob is a General Contractor and head of his own construction yard based in Bobsville and later in Sunflower Valley and now in Fixham Harbour. Bob is from a family of builders - his father Robert is also a builder and so was his Grandfather Billy. He is assisted by Wendy and a host of anthropomorphic vehicles in various projects in and around town. He is not good with computers. Some of the problems in the show arise from Bob's habit of forgetting to turn his mobile phone on. He is also the owner of Pilchard the Cat.
