Bob Ring was a sound effects artist with the ABC Radio and Television Networks in New York City, from 1963 to 1966 and again in 1968, after service with the US Navy Reserve. Amongst other assignments, he created the sound effects for the Rowlf skits on The Jimmy Dean Show, once the show's taping location was moved to the Colonial Theater on Broadway.
In 1968, Ring and Richard Maitland formed Aquarius Sound LTD. to produce sound effects for Sesame Street. Ring later sold his interest in the company, now known as 'Rubber Ducky', to Maitland, who has continued to provide sound effects for the series.
Ring's other credits range from the radio drama Theater Five and ABC's Wide World of Sports to such game shows as Missing Links, Get the Message, and The Price Is Right. After a forty-two year audio career in New York City and San Francisco, Ring is retired in Peacham, Vermont.
