Bobby's World was a cartoon that aired on Fox Kids from 1990-1998 with Mandel voicing Bobby Generic, a child who would embark on adventures through his imagination, as well as the father, Howard Generic, and it's about to make a big comeback. 


Mandel, who is also famous for hosting the hit show Deal or No Deal, spoke with Entertainment Weekly on Monday and revealed the "secret" big news.


"I haven't told anyone this, but Im working on it. Im working on it right now," he said. "I have a meeting on Wednesday. I'm keeping my finger's crossed. Thats what I want to do. Lets hope write something about it, and maybe itll happen."

I did the voice and I was a club act when Fox asked me to do a Saturday morning cartoon.

"Like most things that are happening in my career, it was really accidental," Mandel told EW of making the hit cartoon Bobby's World. "I did the voice, and I was a club act when Fox asked me to do a Saturday morning cartoon."


"I didnt know how to write what I believed was for Saturday mornings. So I just wrote things that happened to me and my kids. And it was all real," he continued. "And it happened to work. Eighty-four episodes, 65 countries in syndication. It was No. 1 for 9 years on Saturday morning. So I think its time to come back. And now what we have with Facebook and Instagram and pop culture I think that could be a big part of what Bobby is dealing with today."
