'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

'Bob's Burgers' season 3 scoops: Loren Bouchard and H. Jon Benjamin reveal guests and plots

BOBS-BURGERS

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.”

Fans of animated comedy have known H. Jon Benjamin’s gruff deadpan since the days of Comedy Central’s Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist and, later, Adult Swim’s Home Movies. Lately, he’s been voicing the title characters to two of TV’s funniest cartoons, FX’s Archer and Fox’s Emmy-nominated Bob’s Burgers — and, soon enough, fans will get to watch him do both at once.

In an interview with EW, Benjamin revealed that the Archer team has produced a crossover episode in which he’ll play both ISIS agent Sterling Archer and grillmaster Bob Belcher. The episode’s already been recorded, he says, and will air during Archer‘s next season (FX has yet to announce a premiere date).

“[Archer creator Adam Reed] really likes Bob’s Burgers,” Benjamin says. “And the fourth season has a Bob’s Burgers tie-in, which is really bizarre.”
