Praise Netflix. Among its release slate for June, now streaming is the Bob Ross series “Beauty is Everywhere,” making the serene couch session you’ve always dreamed of a reality.
Ross gained a cult following for his soothing teaching techniques on the PBS series “The Joy of Painting,” which he hosted from 1983-84. The Florida-based painter died from lymphoma in 1995 at age 52.

The lesser-known “Beauty is Everywhere” was taped in 1991 and features a similar format. The equally-educational series is only made better with cameos by Ross’ pet squirrel.
“Let me show you my pal here, it’s a little girl squirrel that lives with me. She is the cutest little devil that you’ve ever seen,” says Ross in the teaser video.
A fan-run Twitter account is also clearly excited, introducing the official #BobRossandChill hashtag:
Now that Bob Ross is on @netflix who is getting ready for some #BobRossAndChill ?
