    his initials were B.B., like BumbleBee and he was wearing black and yellow. I think that was the only connection to tell you the truth

    The one and only reason is so he could make that horrible joke.

    "Like the country, but without the runs. Eh, eh, eh, eh."

    I did crack up at "Uncle Bobby B. baby, uncle Bobby B."

    Stan Lee made alliteration cool in the '60s, and I haven't needed an explanation for it since.

    Plus, it's a movie. People get cool names in movies.

    It made his initials B.B., might be the last name of a friend or family member of the staff of the movie or something else, maybe someone was from Bolivia and wanted to "represent"? Could be a lot of reasons.

    Actually the real question here is why is his first name Bobby? The obvious choice would have been Bruno.

    Because it's not trying to get the initials 'BB,' it's trying to sound like 'Bumblebee.'
    Say 'Bobby B' a few time, it's pretty close.

    Also, WHO THE HELL CARES?

    Except that Bruno isn't an Italian name.

    Nothing irks me more than to hear people say something is "Italian" because it ends in a vowel.

    yeah, that heppens to me a lot, cause my real name ends with "é", i'm latino, you know.

    UM, I do, cause I'm Bolivian?
    but it's ok, your opinion, I respect.

    I wouldn't care if there was a character named Estafan America in a Bolivian movie.
