Bob's Burgers is an American animated sitcom created by Loren Bouchard for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Belchers – parents Bob and Linda, and their children Tina, Gene, and Louise – who run a hamburger restaurant. The family was conceived by Bouchard after developing Home Movies for UPN.

Since its debut on January 9, 2011, the series has broadcast 52 episodes. While reviews for the first season were mixed, subsequent reviews have been positive. The series premiere, "Human Flesh", drew in 9.38 million viewers, making it the highest-rated series premiere of the season and also finished 9th in the ratings for the week it aired.[1][2]

On October 16, 2012, Fox renewed Bob's Burgers for a fourth season consisting of 22 episodes. The series started airing in reruns in syndication on Cartoon Network's late night programming block Adult Swim on June 23, 2013.[3] On September 26, 2013, Fox renewed the series for a fifth season ordering 22 additional episodes.[4]

Plot[edit]

The show centers on the Belcher family, who run a hamburger restaurant. Creator Loren Bouchard said Bob's Burgers came about because Fox's animation brand centers mostly on family, but he also wanted to dabble in workplace comedy.[5] The show is said to fill the void created by the conclusion of King of the Hill, which Bob's Burgers executive producer Jim Dauterive worked on for nearly its entire run.[6]

Characters[edit]

The Belcher family runs a hamburger restaurant. Bob is the restaurant's owner, and is a father. Linda is Bob's wife. Tina is the oldest child, who helps around Bob's restaurant along with Gene, the only boy, and Louise, the youngest girl.

There are various recurring characters in the series including Jimmy Pesto, owner of a pizzeria and Bob's rival, and his sons Jimmy Jr. (Tina's love interest), and the twins Andy and Ollie, who are hyperactive and are friends of Louise. Other recurring characters include Bob's friend Mort, who owns the mortuary next door, and Teddy Francisco, a regular customer at Bob's Burgers.

Proof of concept[edit]

Before the show was aired, the team created a proof of concept so Fox Broadcasting Company knew what to expect if they bought the show. Jay Howell had his art featured in a test animation based on Bob forgetting about his and Linda's wedding anniversary. In this demo Bob uses the word "shit" without it being censored. The actual show has never used a word that needed to be censored by the network.[7] The proof of concept eventually turned into the pilot episode. It had the same synopsis as the official pilot (aired in 2011) but had both cosmetic and substantial differences. These included:

The original pilot can be seen on the DVD release of the first season, released on April 17, 2012.

Development[edit]

Loren Bouchard created the series

Bob's Burgers first appeared on the development slate at Fox on August 6, 2009.[8] On December 1, 2009, Fox ordered 13 episodes for the first season.[9] On May 17, 2010, Fox placed the series on the primetime slate for the 2010–11 television season.[10] A special preview aired on Thanksgiving on November 25, 2010.[11]

Executive producers[edit]

Creator Loren Bouchard serves as the executive producer, alongside developer Jim Dauterive. They have served as executive producers since the first season.

Writing[edit]

The team of writers includes: Loren Bouchard, Jim Dauterive, Scott Jacobson, Lizzie Molyneux, Wendy Molyneux, Holly Schlesinger, Nora Smith, Steven Davis, Kelvin Yu, Dan Fybel, Rich Rinaldi, Kit Boss, Greg Thompson, and Jon Schroeder. After the writing has been completed, the voice actors read the script as written, but later are allowed to improvise lines. The editors and director decide what improvised lines make the final cut.

Voice cast[edit]

Bob's Burgers has five main cast members: H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, and Kristen Schaal.[12] Benjamin voices Bob Belcher, Roberts voices Linda Belcher, Mintz voices Tina Belcher, Mirman voices Gene Belcher, Schaal voices Louise Belcher.[12]

Hallmarks[edit]

Opening sequence[edit]

The opening sequence begins with a burger, after which the Belcher family appears, with their restaurant sporting a "Grand Opening" sign in the background. The restaurant is then shown being damaged in a series of incidents (a fire, an encounter with a fallen utility pole, an invasion of vermin), each time returning with a sign announcing the "Grand Re-Opening", "Grand Re-Re-Opening", and so on. Finally, the view zooms in to the "Bob's Burgers" sign/logo and fades into the start of the episode.

As with two other Fox animated series, The Simpsons and American Dad!, the show has a changing element in the show's opening credits; the store (on the other side of Bob's from Mort's funeral home) changes from one episode to the next. However, during episodes, it is almost always vacant. Additionally, beginning in Season 2, a different company is named on the pest control truck for each episode's opening credits.

Credits sequence[edit]

The credits sequence of Bob's Burgers features the Belcher family at work. The scene is the kitchen of Bob's Burgers drawn with a black outline over a white background, with the credits off to the right hand side. The background often includes elements from the episode, such as a guest star or visual gag. Over time, the credits sequence has expanded from this to include things other than the kitchen scene, including Ear-sy Rider's credits sequence having the Belcher children riding their "bikes" down a highway. The end credits often have an updated version of a song or piece of music sung in the episode, such as Topsy having an updated version of the song Gene made, "Electric Love."

Daily special[edit]

Every episode features one or more "Today's Special" burgers on a chalk board on the wall behind the counter. The name of the special is usually a play on words that indicates what comes on the burger (e.g. "It's Fun to Eat at the rYe M C A Burger": Comes with Rye, Mustard, Cheese, and Avocado). Similar "Special" burgers are also mentioned by the characters without being written on the board.

Home media[edit]

The first season of the show is available on the iTunes Store for download and was released on DVD on April 17, 2012. The first two seasons are also available for streaming on Netflix. The first 3 seasons are available from Amazon Instant Video, along with season 4 episodes. Note: Season 4 is in progress, the most recent episodes become available within a few days of their TV airing.

Reception and achievements[edit]

Success[edit]

Initial reviews were mixed, with a Metacritic score of 54 out of 100.[13] The Washington Post described the show as "pointlessly vulgar and derivatively dull", while Reuters stated that "It's unwise – and unnecessary – to launch an animated sitcom on Fox that appears intent to ape the vulgarity quotient of Family Guy."[14][15] USA Today stated that "Bob's Burgers isn't very tasty" describing the comedy as just "lop[ing] along, stumbling from one tasteless moment to the next"[16] The New York Times described the show as having "a lackadaisical vibe; its humor, no matter how anarchic, slides by in a deadpan monotone."[17]

However, as Season 1 progressed and concluded and Season 2 began, critics began giving the series praise. Rowan Kaiser of The A.V. Club has recalled, "...the show was amusing, yes, and there was certainly potential, but it took half a dozen episodes before it really began to meet that potential."[18] Season 2 has a Metacritic score of 78 out 100.[19]

Entertainment Weekly gave the show an A− grade in its review, remarking that "a comedy this well done is very rare indeed."[20] Ain't It Cool News called Bob's Burgers "perhaps the funniest half-hour currently airing on broadcast TV."[21] In its review, CNN called the show "wickedly funny" and said there are "too many highlights to list here."[22] Speaking about the show during its second season, The A.V. Club's Rowan Kaiser said "After an uneven start, Bob’s Burgers is becoming one of television’s best comedies!"[23] Since the debut of season two of the series, the show's positive reception has increased. The AV Club voted Bob's Burgers as the 10th best TV show of 2012.[24]

Accolades[edit]

Bob's Burgers was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in 2012 along with fellow FOX shows The Simpsons, American Dad, Comedy Central's Futurama and Nickelodeon's The Penguins of Madagascar.

Ratings[edit]

After airing, the show became the highest-rated series premiere of the season and also finished 9th in the ratings for the week it aired.[29][30] Despite this, the ratings went on a slide with ratings expert Bill Gorman of TV by the Numbers calling it a "toss up" for renewal before the series was renewed for a second season[31] which premiered on March 11, 2012.

In popular culture[edit]

Actual Bob's Burgers location in La Puente, CA, during 2012

On January 6, 2011, some Fatburger locations were re-branded as Bob's Burgers for the day as a promotion.[50] It also offered limited-time offers, such as a free burger giveaway, and a special, "The Thanks a Brunch Burger", on the menu until February 2011.[50] There were also "Bob's Burgers" coupons offered for a free medium FatBurger special.[50][51] Across the United States, 4 locations were re-branded as Bob's Burgers, in California, New Jersey, Nevada, and Illinois.[50][51] At least one restaurant location in California continues to use the Bob's Burgers appellation into 2012.

In the Family Guy episode "Space Cadet", the principal shows Peter and Lois a picture of Bob Belcher as a sign that Chris is doing poorly in his Advanced Art class. Peter mutters "I'm very embarrassed," and the principal replies "Yeah, well, someone should be."

The season 4 premiere episode of Archer features a crossover where Bob is revealed to be Sterling Archer (also voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) in a fugue state. The menu board plays on once-amnesiac fictional secret agent Thomas Elphinstone Hambledon in a novel series by Manning Coles.

"Homerland", the season 25 premiere episode of The Simpsons, features a couch gag in which the Belcher family (skinned yellow according to the standard character coloring of the series) attend a 25th anniversary party in the Simpson family living room with the main characters of their fellow Animation Domination series.
