10 things we learned about 'Bob's Burgers' at its PaleyFest panel

New York’s Paley Center for Media is in the middle of its TV-centric PaleyFest, which includes several panel discussions with the casts and crews of critically beloved shows. Last night, EW caught one with the people behind Bob’s Burgers—including voice actors H. Jon Benjamin and Kristen Schaal, John Roberts, and the show’s creator, Loren Bouchard.

The hour-long conversation frequently detoured into improvisational riffing by the cast, but it also delivered some interesting information about the show. Here are ten of the best tidbits we learned.

Watch Gene pitch a 'Die Hard' musical in the 'Bob's Burgers' season premiere

Die Hard or Working Girl? That’s the kind of question that plagues the young students at Wagstaff School, and Gene Belcher is in the middle of all of it in this exclusive clip from this Sunday’s season-five premiere of Bob’s Burgers.

The episode finds Wagstaff’s pupils competing to pitch up with what they think should be the big fall musical this year. Gene is set on adapting Die Hard, the movie’s Christmas setting be damned. But his confidence is shattered when he finds out that his “thunder thief” and once-lover Courtney is pitching Working Girl—or as he calls it, “the sassy sister film to Die Hard.”

Needless to say, things get tense and keyboard insults are hurled. Take a look at Gene and Courtney’s dueling musicals in the exclusive Bob’s Burgers clip below.

'Bob's Burgers': Tina feels the bat mitzvah blues –- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

We’ve all been there — some super cool kid in the seventh grade is having the Bat Mitzvah to End All Bat Mitzvahs, and you didn’t get an invite. And since Bob’s Burgers’ breakout favorite Tina Belcher is the epitome of all things middle school, of course she’s singing the bat mitzvah blues in the newest installment of Fox’s hit animated show.

In the March 16 episode “Mazel Tina,” the eldest Belcher child is bummed that she didn’t get invited to Tammy’s bat mitzvah, but being the inventive, idea-riddled little gem that she is, she finds a way to score an invite by volunteering Bob and co. to cater the glamorous event.

If you thought the Ramones’ Rock ‘N’ Roll High School was cool, wait until you see the Belchers’ “Fart School for the Gifted.”
