Watch Bob and Margaret

This is an animated series that was developed in Canada and the UK. Main characters in the show are a married couple named Bob and Margaret. There are very few regular characters in the show, but there are several friends who stop by for visits. The couple is an English couple who are about 40 years old. Bob is a dentist trying to support his family. They struggle with all of the mid-life happenings that other couples struggle with, but they are in a cartoon form. Many of the storylines revolve around issues that families can relate to such as shopping and spending too much money to dealing with the issues of life from friends who annoy them. They frequently go out to dinner with their friends, only to talk about them later when they get home. The series begins with the couple living in London, but they move to Canada by the third season.
