Bob was a Hobbit of Bree.

Biography Edit

Bob worked at the stables near The Prancing Pony. His counterpart was Nob, who worked as a servant at the inn. They were both hired by Barliman Butterbur, and make very minor appearances in the books; Nob more so than Bob, and that was only due to his "slow-coachery".[1][2]

Portrayal in adaptations Edit

Bob appeared in the 1981 BBC radio adaptation of the The Lord of the Rings and was voiced by Haydn Wood. Bob also appeared in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (video game), but not in the film.
