Bob Ross Has Issues
Remember Bob Ross? He was the popular artist who painted landscape portraits on his Saturday afternoon PBS show. He was known for his gentle manner, his catchphrases for objects in his paintings ("happy little trees"), and his brilliant portraits that were created in thirty minutes.
A few years ago, Rob Bartlett parodied Mr. Ross during his Emmy-winning "Rob Bartlett's Not For Profit TV Special" program. And let's just say that Bartlett's Mr. Ross is slightly more deranged. Also, judging by the fact that this clip has almost 400,000 hits on Youtube, I'd say that he's also slightly funnier.
