Get Ready to Set Sail!

Remember getting up in the morning to watch Sailor Bob?

Watching as “Gilly,” pesters Sailor Bob with jokes from the porthole. Blue Bird entertaining us from the porch of his birdhouse; and Mr. Mouse as he “squeaked” about the days events to Sailor Bob. And don't forget the awesome drawings, Sailor Bob created with his ever ready magic marker.

Now you can take a trip down memory lane with Sailor Bob and his puppet friends, and explore the world off screen in the documentary, "The Sailor Bob Story". This 90 minute program, filled with archival photos and footage from the era, will take a nostalgic look at Sailor Bob, a.k.a. Bob Griggs, and the lasting impact he had on the children and adults of Virginia.
