The 1950s-styled, pompadour-haired powerhouse Retro Bill also encourages children (and adults too) to maintain a positive attitude, exercise and eat right (which includes drinking LOTS of water)! Retro Bill also encourages kids to do their homework and to participate in "positive alternatives" to bad things... like playing sports, being in a school play, or learning to play a musical instrument. Retro Bill's motto to children and parents is What goes around comes around!
