The Bob Brothers were both the ringmasters and owners of the Bob Brothers All-Star International Circus.
Bob Brothers had darker hair and a bushy mustache, while Robert Brothers had lighter hair & a shorter, square shaped mustache. Despite the differences, others couldn't tell them apart. They also finished each other's sentences.
The Bob Brothers held circus performances in Hill Valley during 1933 on April 7-10, though their circus was doing poorly and they had to pay Mac Tannen for use of his farmland. Making things worse was Tannen demanding that they had to pay double to continue running the circus on the land, otherwise he would get the circus.
The Bob Brothers ended up putting Verne Brown and his friend Chris to work are they accidentally damaged Mac's farm. The Brothers were later relieved when finding out that Verne and Chris managed to get people to attend the circus that night, as well as filling in as trapeze artists.
Thanks to the kids, the Bob Brothers were able to pay the money owed to Mac Tannen.
