ROC N' B & Friends is Western New York's super-wacky, retro-style Saturday morning TV show! The stars of "ROC N'B & Friends," a world-weary, sensible bear named Roc along with a nutty but thoughtful little buffalo named B were recently joined by an ensemble of wacky new characters. Each week you'll find these fun, adorable characters getting themselves involved in all sorts of adventures and mischief, and fun. ROC N' B & Friends is currently broadcast on WBGT (Saturdays at 10am) and My Rochester TV (4X's a day/everyday) throughout the five county Rochester, New York region. WBGT is available on Time Warner Cable channel 18/digital channel 1215 and on over-the-air channel 46.1 (No satellite carriage). My Rochester TV is available over-the-air on channel 46.5. In Buffalo, the show will air on Saturdays at 11am on WBXZ’s Throwback Television and on Sundays at 9am on COZI-TV beginning on April, 1st.
"Roc" is not only B's father figure but really, he's everyone's Papa-Bear. This bear has seen a lot of living in his day and of course, only wants the best for all. Although he can be a bit overbearing at times, he lives by hard-won truths, handshakes, his good word, and, of course, his humor. While Roc and B often have their moments of differing opinions, there's nothing but love between the two of them.
"B" is an overly-curious and highly-energetic youngster whose heart seems to react faster than his mind most-times, much to his ultimate detriment. This buffalo loves a good book and a great adventure and is always eager to see what's around each corner and under every stone! B's quick, articulate mind always seems to get him into one jam or another.
Simply put.,"Blue" (short for Blue-Cheese) is B's best friend and practically his roommate, as they both have bedrooms in the same hall of the boarding house. Their relationship is a great example of "guilt by proximity," both figuratively and literally, as whenever B gets into trouble, Blue is never too far behind.
Leonard is the gray, furry, fedora-topped director of our show. He’s a quiet guy, who prefers to stay off camera. Leonard decides what each and every show will be about.
Suzy Pancakes recently packed her bags and moved to the big city to host her own television show called ON THE AIR. The show started out as a radio program so now shy, little Suzy has to get used to being on camera.
Mimi Lasagna is a know it all. As an only child, she spends a lot of time with her books, learning about anything and everything. Mimi loves to teach what she knows in her pretend classroom of imaginary friends and stuffed animals at "Mimi School."

Lizard-Brain, as you can see, is a sweet-looking, happy guy. He is literally Roc N' B & Friends most enthusiastic fan. If you have something to tell him, you better talk quickly because he rarely sticks around long.
