Ugly Bob is a Canadian who makes his debut appearance in the Season Two episode, "Terrance and Phillip in Not Without My Anus".

Background

He reappears well over a decade later in "Royal Pudding" which revealed he had moved to America. In America, Bob is not considered ugly. He is just considered Canadian.

He still wears a paper bag over his head and now also wears a jacket. He runs into Ike Broflovski on his way to the Canadian call to arms. They join with the other Canadians to confront Scott the Dick who is now a giant, but find out that he did not kidnap the Princess. He and Ike join Scott after the real culprits, suspecting a group of Eskimos, but they quickly discover Scott is incorrect. Luckily, the Eskimos lead them to the true and final culprit - Tooth Decay. Bob is instrumental in his defeat, as Ike exposing Bob's face to the creature freezes and kills it. He is given a Canadian Medal of Honor by the Princess.

Appearance

His face has been described as one in which "somebody tried to put out a forest fire with a screwdriver". He wears green pants and an orange, long-sleeved shirt. His shirt, like Terrance and Phillip's and Scott the Dick's shirts, has his name's first initial embroidered on it, however, his is in lowercase. Terrance and Phillip advise him to wear a paper bag over his head. In "Royal Pudding" he was seen wearing a brown jacket and a grey colored paper bag.

Interactions

Celine Dion

In "Terrance and Phillip in Not Without My Anus", Ugly Bob takes Terrance and Phillip's advice of wearing the paper bag over his head. Celine Dion, who, in the show, had been married to but divorced Terrance, fell for him and they had sex with each other. She does not yet know about his true appearance, because he wore the bag over his head at all times to help hide the fact that he is actually hideously ugly, and refers to him as "Handsome Bob".

Terrance, meanwhile, had rescued the daughter he had had with Celine during their marriage, and he wants to start a life with her again. When he finds out about her new relationship, he pulls the bag off of Bob's head, revealing his true appearance to her. She screams in horror, but decides to stay with Bob nonetheless, on the condition that he keeps the bag over his head at all times. Later, it is discovered that he had impregnated Celine, and they both hope that the baby would turn out to look like Celine.

Terrance and Phillip

Ugly Bob is friends with Terrance and Phillip enough that they will talk to him despite his horrific deformity, which only Canadians can apparently see. Terrance and Phillip are the ones to suggest that Ugly Bob start wearing a paper bag on his head to avoid people knowing how ugly he is, though they do so mockingly. Ugly Bob is insulted for his appearance by Terrance and Phillip.

Ike Broflovski

Meets Ike on a bus. He does not know that there are other Canadians living in the U.S.
