Bob Rooney was a minor character who made recurring appearances on the original Gothic soap opera series Dark Shadows, which aired on ABC from 1966 to 1971. He was played by actor Bob O'Connell.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Bob Rooney was the bartender at a drinking establishment called the Blue Whale. Bob could almost always be found standing behind the bar in his plaid shirt with a white rag, wiping down the bar and serving customers. In fact, he was there so often that it appeared as if he never had a day off. Bob was not a particularly chatty individual, but in a one-pub town such as Collinsport, Maine, he had established himself as a familiar visage among the locals and everyone knew his name.
