Bob the Builder is a British stop-motion animation series. It follows Bob the Builder, together with his colleaque Wendy and his building machines, Scoop, Skip, Trix, Travis, Dizzy, Lofty, Roley, Muck, Zoomer and Benny. Among the other characters in the series are Spud the Scarecrow, who usually is more of a hinderance than a help, and Bob's pets Scrufty the dog and Pilchard the cat. Together they manage the construction jobs around Sunflower Valley.

In August 2003 PEZ released a series of five dispensers in the USA :

Bob the Builder Wendy Pilchard Spud Scoop

The original version of Spud had a nose of 1.6 cm. This was considerd dangerous to children, though, and the dispensers were recalled and replaced with a 1.2 cm-nosed version.

The set released for Europe, Canada, Japan and Mexico, also in 2003, included only four dispensers, leaving out Scoop, and had different versions of Spud (hard plastic nose) and Pilchard (narrower ears).
