My name's B.O.B., Bio-Sanitation Batallion.
―B.O.B. introducing himself to V.I.N.CENT

B.O.B. is one of the main protagonists from Disney's 1979 live-action film The Black Hole. He was voiced by Slim Pickens.


B.O.B. was the last one of his type to be still aboard the U.S.S. Cygnus. Over the years, he had been abused and bullied by the other robots such as S.T.A.R., calling him a "freak." He suffered a lot of severe damage from being beaten up a lot.

His closet friend became V.I.N.CENT and the only one who was against Hans Reinhardt's insane plans to enter the black hole. He told the crew of the Palomino what really happened to the crew and showed V.I.N.CENT what was left of them.

As the Cygnus started to tear apart, the Palonimo crew tried to escape to probe ship. As the crew was escaping, B.O.B. was shot by Maximilian after protecting the Palonimo crew, but V.I.N.CENT defeated him in a duel. V.I.N.CENT tried to help B.O.B., but B.O.B. was finished and in his last moments he bid his new friend farewell.
