Stories on Building Bobland Bay include:
- "The House That Lofty Built" - Bob has turned his mobile home into the on-site office for the Bobland Bay development, forgetting that he'll need to find a place to sleep! Lofty takes up the task of creating a shelter for him, but not without a few structural hurdles to clear. In the end, the team realizes that no matter the dwelling, there's no place like home and sharing it with friends in the best home of all.
- "Bob's Big Idea" - Everyone decides that it's high time Bob had a dream house of his own and come up with all sorts of ideas for the design. Problem is, Bob can't think of any ideas of his own! But after seeing his friends working hard on his behalf, he realizes it's not who has the ideas, it's being part of a team that's important.
- "Lofty the Lifeguard" - Faster than you can say Baywatch … Famed film director Oscar Flicks has come to town to shoot his new action movie. But, Lofty is terribly camera shy! When fear gets the better of him, he must overcome it to save Oscar from a watery fate.
- "Star Struck Spud" - Bob and the team make plans to build a drive-in movie theater and the first flick shown will be Oscar's new project starring lifeguard Mitch Dixon. Spud, ever eager to be part of the action, becomes Oscar's assistant but struggles to succeed at the tasks at hand. Can he find his place and get the job done to help get the movie made on time? Yes he can!
- "Tumbler and the Skate Park" - Everyone excitedly waits for the new skate park to be built. It's a cement job too big for just Dizzy so new crew member Tumbler, a loud, boastful cement mixer, arrives and wastes no time undermining Dizzy's contributions. When his big wheels get him into trouble, it's a humbling lesson for Tumbler, who realizes that bigger doesn't always mean better!
- "Fantastic Flex" - Meet new team member Flex, a truck with a very special flexible crane-like arm. When the local lighthouse needs a new lens, Flex, a little too eager to please, tries to deliver it by himself, but soon learns that teamwork means doing what you're best at and letting others do what they're best at. And together everyone can get the job done!
The building adventures in Bobland Bay continue in September when 14 episodes of Bob the Builder - Project: Build It set at this seaside location air on PBS Kids® (check local listings).
