Bob's Big Boy photograph of the model which became the symbol used by Bob's Restaurants for over 60 years! His name was Richard Woodruff and he lived down the street from the original Bob's Pantry located in Glendale California. The original of this picture was kept in Richard's wallet and was signed on the back by Bob Wain, who started Bob's in the 1930's. Richard was a fat little boy who hung around the small Bob's Panty on Colorado Street. On one occasion little Richard asked if he could have a hamburger with two pieces of meat on it. Now known as the first "double-decker" hamburger! Ben Washam, the well-known Warner Bros. animation artist designed the famous "Fat-Boy" logo in the 1940's after little Richard Woodruff. This photo shows a little older and bigger Richard posing in front of the original Bob's Pantry located on Colorado Street in Glendale holding the now famous "double-decker" hamburger.
