Based on the popular international television show that airs in the US on PBS KIDS® and PBS KIDS SproutSM, Bob the Builder™ LIVE! Spud’s Big Mess is a singing and dancing extravaganza for budding builders and their families. The 90-minute show features ten original songs as the characters embark on an adventure that promotes positive messages of caring for the environment, recycling, teamwork, cooperation and, of course, the importance of a can-do spirit.

HIT Entertainment, one of the world’s leading independent children’s entertainment producers and rights owners, in association with UK-based I.P. Live, announce the debut of Bob the Builder™ LIVE! Spud’s Big Mess – Bob the Builder’s first touring stage show in the US in five years. Presented by Magic Arts & Entertainment, Bob the Builder™ LIVE! Spud’s Big Mess stars Bob the Builder, his business partner Wendy, and his trusty machine-team members Scoop, Dizzy, Lofty and Scrambler. They are joined by other favorite friends from Sunflower Valley, including the mischievous scarecrow Spud, Farmer Pickles and Mayor Bentley.

The show begins as Bob and his team build the first-ever recycling center and wind farm in Sunflower Valley. It isn’t long before some items go missing and a few of Bob’s friends mysteriously disappear. Faced with a mountain of garbage, they must figure out who is responsible for the mess and work together to fix it, while dealing with Spud’s antics. Can they all pull together and get the job done? Yes they can!

Interwoven into the storyline are takeaway lessons for kids and good reminders for the grown-ups. In support of the eco-friendly messages of this show, attendees are encouraged to read the show program online at In addition, show materials will include special recycling tips and eco-themed activities for kids.

Multiples of all of the Can Do Crew, and even Bob and Wendy! My oldest, Clayton, started watching Bob at a very young age, and he still watches today. We even have “Bob the Builder: A Christmas to Remember” in the DVD player in the car right now. On our way home last night Clayton was quoting the movie right along with it. His favorite Bob the Builder movie is “When Bob Became a Builder”. Clayton even dressed up like Bob the Builder for Halloween one year. He looked just like Bob, but with blond hair! Between the ice storm and everything else that has been going on around here I completely forgot about the show! I am so glad to see an opportunity to win some tickets to this show. I KNOW Clayton would LOVE it! Thanks for the opportunity!
