DVD[edit]

Any release dates for the DVD yet? Obviously this is a rhetorical question if the answer is no. If the answer is yes then pray include them for us --Thewayforward 11:57, 21 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Image size[edit]

Would anyone object if the image of Weebl and Bob was cropped? - Evil saltine 08:31, 30 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Doubt it. Oh. Just realised this was posted nearly 3 years ago. Oh well.NIN 19:51, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Redirect[edit]

Any thoughts about making Weebl redirect to Jonti Picking rather than Weebl and Bob, or possibly a disambiguation page? Weebl runs a website named 'Weebl's Stuff' and seems to use the alias "Weebl" around the web. Khlo 17:24, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Shouldn't Weebl Stuff be mentioned here? I mean, classics like Kenya and Magical Trevor should be mentioned alongside Weebl and Bob since they're made by the same guys and so on. I think we should leave Weebl leading to this page, but with clear disambiguation links.--The Wizard of Magicland 20:23, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Full Names[edit]

Weebl's full name is Weebl Chauncey, Bob's is Robert Bobertson, Monkey's is Derek and the pear's name is Hank. - 80.42.145.213

  • I know you're right about Bob, but any source for the others? I haven't noticed anything on the fansite or the forums. - Drw25 14:03, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Monkey's full name is given in the credits for "anywhere" and "anyhoo". 96T 13:25, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Monkey checks out all right, but I've removed Weebl's full name. I've tried Yahoo and Google to no avail (both spellings); if someone can find a source, please post it here. Deltabeignet 01:48, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I am almost positive that "Professor Heinz Weebl PhD" is not Weebls's full name, just a fake name he used in "Show" to make him sound like a pie expert of some sort. -DJ Nufonia
  • If you guys are talking about full names of the charactors then weebl's first & last name is Weebl Bull. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lightningleakless (talkcontribs) 06:11, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Copyright notice[edit]

Why was that copyright notice added to the top of the article? It looks out of place to me. --84.193.174.134 23:08, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

I've got to agree, it does look odd. The Soul Reaver 21:42, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Citing sources[edit]

Sources must be cited (WP:CITE), especially when using quotes. Use reference tags if at all possible. haz (user talk) 19:51, 28 June 2006

List of episodes[edit]

Is there a list of episodes on WP somewhere? Is it WP's style to do that? Nippoo 20:20, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Yeah. Under "See Also" on the article page it links over to List of Weebl and Bob cartoons. Wikipedia's all about the lists. Bo-Lingua 14:47, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Citations Really Needed[edit]

There's a lot of ho-hummy language "most fans", "many fans". Also, why are the "notable" quotes notable? Some of them, like "Stephen Hawking's" quotes aren't that "notable." If I have to think of a quote from W&B, there are only two that jump to mind. "Pie!" and "Mmm...Pie." Let's see some citations, Spin Boy 11. Bo-Lingua 19:29, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Hairy Jam Jar[edit]

I'd like to see more about the Hairy Jam Jar, as he is my favourite character. "Sorry, I was trying to open these beans."

Quotes[edit]

I just deleted the whole of the article's "memborable quote" section. Not only are "memorable quote" sections an IMDb convention, not Wikipedia's, but they didn't add to the article at all except to identify certain things certain people found funny and that the characters have a limited and stunted vocabulary. The latter can and is expressed in the encyclopedic part of the article, though this too has a good way to go from being a fan page. BigBlueFish 17:06, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Funnier to Americans[edit]

I'm wondering if the general consensus, is that Webbl and Bob are funnier to Americans. I think it might be, because where British people are used to hearing British slang more than Americans. Since Americans aren't usually that used to British slang, alot of it sounds to them overly proper which is hilarious to them.

Like the words arse, and bum, seem funnier to Americans because Americans are used to people just plainly saying a**hole, without trying to make it sound any less offensive than it's intended to be. In a sense British insults, seem so un-insultive to Americans, that it's kind of like a kid calling someone a name, taking on a deadly serious meaning.

I don't know if this should be added to the article, or if it just goes without saying. I think it does play into alot of the appeal, that American fans find with the web show. Violet yoshi 09:07, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

I think it might have something to do with the fact that Americans generally are moronic.Thisnamestaken (talk) 19:57, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Pianist[edit]

I read on the fan site that his name is acctually the beefs king. We should change it. -skrb


Editing[edit]

I put Dishonest Joe in the article and it was removed instantly, why? he is an actual character and it benifited the site plz change it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 76.110.197.151 (talkcontribs).

Somehow, you triggered Shadowbot (talk · contribs), an anti-linkspam bot. Probably because you are editing from an IP without an account and added an external link. To weebls-stuff. Bots, eh? :-) Seriously, don't worry about it. I've reverted the bot to restore your edit. The bot is usually very effective against advertising spam, but it's still a computer program, not a person, so some mistakes are inevitable. CaptainVindaloo t c e 13:48, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:WeeblandBob.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:WeeblandBob.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Mysterious Chicken[edit]

Any particular reason why this character is listed under two different catagories...with basically the same description in each one? Which one should be deleted?

Zoology??[edit]

  • Sounds to me like Goo-ology is a neologism of zoology, don't you think? Although the word is a lot like zoology, except it doesn't involve the actual term or study of the word. -Not a You-Tuber named, "KroboProductions" —Preceding undated comment added 16:39, 19 April 2009 (UTC).

"Wheelchair-bound"[edit]

"Wheelchair-bound" is considered derogatory usage and should not be reintroduced into the article. Please see List of disability-related terms with negative connotations before reverting this change again. --Rahaeli (talk) 14:21, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
