Bob Ross Megapost: Where to Stream and What They Look Like

You may have seen our previous posts about Bob Ross’ two Collections on Netflix: Beauty is Everywhere, and Chill with Bob Ross. Well the Ross team has finally finished uploading every episode to YouTube, and we thought we’d compile all the episodes here so there’s no confusion about what’s what.

The Joy of Painting on YouTube

There are 31 Seasons of The Joy of Painting – that’s the main Bob Ross painting show that aired on PBS from 1983 to 1994. Unfortunately, Bob passed away in 1995 to Lymphoma.

Something of a resurgence happened recently when Joy of Painting marathons started airing on Twitch, bringing a whole new (and much sillier) audience to the show. They also started uploading all the episodes to his official YouTube, which has finally finished. Interestingly, if you go to the “Full Seasons” playlists, they’re not all there, but just check the channel uploads and they’re all there in about reverse order. Just search for the episode you want. But which episode do you want to paint along with? Check out all the episode endings to decide!

All Joy of Painting Endings

This Imgur collection includes every episode ending by season, so just open up the image for a season, and you can pick which episode you want to watch.

Beauty is Everywhere

Outside of all episodes on YouTube and random marathons on Twitch, they’ve also added two “collections” on Netflix. The first is “Beauty is Everywhere” – a curated selection of some of the best painting Bob has done, that also show what a thoughtful and nice man he was. We’ve got a full write-up of it here.

Chill with Bob Ross

The second Netflix collection is “Chill with Bob Ross” (get it? Netflix and Chill?). This collection came out in the Winter and features cold, snowy scenes from the show. We’ve got a more in-depth write-up of which episodes they are here, including all the episode endings for those paintings specifically.

Our own paintings

The reason we love to talk about Bob Ross is that we’ve joined the bandwagon as well! When his show started streaming on Twitch, we got caught up in the excitement. Then when a family member was going to be recovering from surgery, we bought two sets of oil paints, all the supplies, and had a blast learning to paint along with the show. Here are our own paintings so far:

1: Season 23, Episode 11 – Frozen Beauty in Vignette

2: Season 6, Episode 4 – Whispering Stream

3: Season 31, Episode 11 – Lake at the Ridge w/ Steve Ross

4: Season 27, Episode 1 – Twilight Beauty

5: Season 2, Episode 4 – Shades of Grey

6: Our first original painting, Lake Como, Italy

Netflix and “Chill With Bob Ross”

No, it’s not because he’s unbuttoning his shirt a few more buttons; the second “collection” of Bob Ross episodes is on Netflix: Chill with Bob Ross. They’re all winter scenes, get it?

As with the first Collection, people wonder which actual episodes these are, and if you’re thinking of painting one you probably want to know what the end product looks like (here’s our breakdown of Collection 1: Beauty Is Everywhere).

So here’s the list of episodes complete with finished product screenshots:
