This game is based on the Howie Mandell cartoon of the same name. The story is that Bobby has to clean his room, and he has daydreams when he starts cleaning certain parts of his room. This game appears to be complete, and it is possible to finish the game without any issues. It isn't a very long game, though, and can be beaten in less than an hour. There is a split between platforming and shooting levels. The simplistic gameplay is aimed at smaller children, but I think they would find this game to be a bit frustrating.

The game was developed by RSP.

A second prototype was sold by Bob Prater on Ebay in mid 2013. Much like the prototype he had for Mickey's Playtown Adventure, he got it when he was producing a show called “The Home Tech Show”. The text of the auction is below:

I also have in my archive some pictures of a Vidpro card for Bobby's World. This would have been used in store displays. This might be the best shot we have of the artwork on the back of the box, unless someone has the card and scans it.
