Tag: Bob's Burgers (1-10 of 15)
Some dads will do anything for their daughter.
In this week’s episode of Bob’s Burgers, the Fox comedy takes on the “brony” subculture with its own twist as Bob must go undercover to steal back Tina’s beloved (and rare) horse doll, or equestranaut. Check out this exclusive clip from Sunday’s episode below: READ FULL STORY
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.
Watch an exclusive clip below, and tune in to an all-new Bob’s Burgers (one of EW’s picks for the ten funniest shows on TV right now) on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET. READ FULL STORY
If you thought the Ramones’ Rock ‘N’ Roll High School was cool, wait until you see the Belchers’ “Fart School for the Gifted.”
That’s what Wagstaff Middle School turns into on this Sunday’s Bob’s Burgers when Gene, Tina, and Louise pen a catchy rock tune dedicated to the wonders of “the wind that’s in your tails.” Needless to say, their classmates can’t help but join in on the fun, and soon the whole building (sans faculty!) joins in on the song-and-dance number.
Plus: keytar. Yes!
Take a look at the exclusive fart-rock video below:
What happens when Tina has to start calling Bob “Mr. Belcher” instead of dad? She’ll finally get to fulfill her fantasy of becoming the teacher’s pet.
Well, maybe. This Sunday’s Bob’s Burgers will find the Belcher family patriarch taking on a gig as substitute teacher when the regular home-ec instructor goes on leave because she is, in the words of guidance counselor Mr. Frond, “a drug addict.” This prompts Tina to lose herself in a gold-star-filled fever dream, and we’ve got an exclusive preview video of it right here.

'Bob's Burgers' animates The National singing Thanksgiving song in boatloads of gravy -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Fans of The National, Bob’s Burgers and, well, gravy, you are in for a treat: The Fox comedy has animated the Brooklyn indie rockers singing “Sailors in Your Mouth,” the wistful ode to the savory sauce that was heard in Sunday’s Thanksgiving episode. That wasn’t the first time that the band and Bob’s Burgers bonded: The National contributed a rendition of “Kill Your Turkey” to last year’s Thanksgiving episode, and Bob’s Burgers writer Scott Jacobson directed the video for The National’s “Conversation 16,” which stars… Bob’s voice actor Kristen Schaal.
Press play for a trippy, drippy journey into Bob’s mouth and beyond. READ FULL STORY
There’s nothing more stressful than preparing a Thanksgiving meal, especially because there are so many things that can go wrong. You can burn something, over-salt, under-cook, or, if you’re Bob, find the turkey in the toilet?
We have an exclusive sneak peek from Bob’s Burgers Thanksgiving episode, which shows the family waking up on Thanksgiving morning to find that their uncooked turkey is somehow wedged in the toilet. And trying to get it out? Well, that’s a bad idea for a number of reasons.

Bob’s Burgers has already been renewed for a fifth season — which is exciting! But we’re still pumped about this season, which premieres Sunday.
To whet our appetites, we talked to showrunner Loren Bouchard and star H. Jon Benjamin about what plots, guests, and holiday-themed high jinks we can expect from the Fox comedy’s fourth year.
Before the fourth season of Bob’s Burgers even premieres, fans have already been promised a season 5. Fox announced Thursday that it has ordered 22 more episodes of the animated series.
“Bob’s Burgers is one of those rare finds that just continues to outdo itself, creatively,” Fox chairman Kevin Reilly said in a press release announcing the news. “The show has become a key member of our Sunday Animation Domination family, and we’re looking forward to attracting new fans with another season.”
Bob’s Burgers returns Sunday, Sept. 29, at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
There’s a new food sheriff in town, and he’s bad for Bob’s business.
When hellish health inspector Hugo leaves his job to become a nudist on Sunday’s episode of Bob’s Burgers, the Belchers meet his replacement, Tommy (voiced by Portlandia/SNL star Fred Armisen), who seems pretty cool. But seems is not is, is it? It seems not. Tommy strong-arms Bob into allowing him to perform his music at the restaurant, which can be described as, well, customer-clearing. Bob and Linda ultimately decide to head over to the town’s new nude beach to track down Hugo and beg for his return. This results in a topless Linda and a naked wrestling match between Bob and Hugo.
Click on the video below to see a preview of “Nude Beach” (Sunday, 8:30 p.m., Fox), in which Tommy rocks Bob’s Burgers with such confessional lyrics as “I’m good at sex!/You’re bad at sex!” READ FULL STORY
'Bob's Burgers': Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally are hippie farmers with a 'weed problem' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
On this week’s episode of Bob’s Burgers, Bob believes that his kids should have a proper summer vacation away from the restaurant, so he does the humane thing: He fires them. But the ink on their resumes is barely dry when they are snapped up by a pair of married hippie farmers — played by Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) and his real-life wife, Megan Mullally (Childrens Hospital, Parks and Recreation) — who employ them as “weed pickers.” Catch their funky drift? Click on the preview video below, and you will be treated to some sweet autoharp action along with the sentence “She looked like a fairy queen pooping under a tree.” READ FULL STORY
'Bob's Burgers': H. Jon Benjamin and Loren Bouchard on show's location, Emmy nomination, and cilantro
Where does Bob’s Burgers take place? Who’s a better kid, Gene or Louise? (Sorry, Tina!) And does cilantro suck? Bob’s showrunner Loren Bouchard and star H. Jon Benjamin answer these questions, and more.
Bouchard on the show’s setting: “It’s a semi-Springfield. It can’t be San Francisco, which is what many people think. It has all that Victorian architecture from San Francisco because I was living there when we developed the show, but we set it firmly in the Northeast because of the way Linda sounds, and Teddy. There’s just so much East Coast in those voices, we just couldn’t take it out. It would’ve been too weird to have her doing that voice — you’d have to constantly be explaining that she’s a transplant or whatever. And because it’s this seaside, past-it’s-prime, dusty old town, we kind of felt like that puts it pretty close to those Coney Island, New York-New Jersey shore parts. I grew up in the New England area, and there were lots of beach towns like it, though we don’t want to be in New England party because Family Guy has Rhode Island sewn up. But basically I picture it somewhere in the outer boroughs or on the northern Jersey shore.” READ FULL STORY
On the heels of Bob’s Burgers recent Best Animated Series Emmy nomination, we caught up with series creator Loren Bouchard and star H. Jon Benjamin to chat about their upcoming third season (premiering Sept. 30 on FOX).
The duo (who’ve worked together before on Dr. Katz and Home Movies) gave us a taste of some of their favorite new plotlines and dished out on the top-notch guests they were able to snag this year — like Jon Hamm, who’ll be playing a talking toilet. “It’s a kind of E.T. homage, but instead of an alien, it’s this high-end talking electronic toilet that falls off a truck and lands in the woods,” says Bouchard. “And Gene [Eugene Mirman] finds it, E.T.-style. It’s kind of a love story between a boy and a toilet.”
