B.O.B. (short for Benzoate Ostylezene Bicarbonate) is one of the primary protagonists from Dreamworks Animation'sMonsters vs. Aliens franchise. He is a blue, one-eyed gelatinous mass that was created in a laboratory when scientists injected chemically-altered ranch dressing into a genetically-altered tomato. He can absorb nearly anything and bend his mushy frame into any shape. He is joined by fellow monsters Dr. Cockroach and The Missing Link, under the supervision of General W.R. Monger, in a top-secret facility.
