Legendary television painter Bob Ross would have been 73 years old today (he died of lymphoma in 1995) and to celebrate his life and legacy, video platform Twitch is making every episode of his show, The Joy of Painting, available for streaming.
The 403 episodes of the PBS classic will be available to stream for eight days starting today, and are part of a larger announcement from the site. Twitch—best known for live-streaming video games—has partnered with Adobe to launch a new vertical called Twitch Creative, which features artists live-streaming their work and process. In other words, the very thing that Bob Ross is known for (minus the live part).
It’s been a big week for fans of the gentle master of oil painting. Last Friday, the Bob Ross YouTube channel uploaded the previously-absent pilot episode, much to the delight of adoring fans.
The bevy of Bob Ross episodes will be available on Twitch starting at 2 p.m. PST today, and you’ll only need to watch around 50 videos a day to make it all the way through the series, which is probably what your regular intake is anyway.
Have a happy little binge watch, friends.
