If you have been loking for a new tv show that is funny, and reflects your love for cheeseburgers, then you should check out Bobs Burgers!
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 he developed Home Movies.
Since its debut on January 9, 2011, the series has broadcast 98 episodes. While reviews for the first season were mixed, feedback for subsequent seasons has been much more positive. After the first season, Bento Box Entertainment was replaced by Wilo Productions and Buck & Millie Productions. All seasons are produced and distributed in association with 20th Century Fox Television and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. 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. Reruns began airing on Cartoon Network’s late night adult programming block Adult Swim on June 23, 2013, and began airing in syndication on local stations in September 2015.
The show centers on the Belcher family—Bob, Linda, and their children Tina, Gene, and Louise—who run a hamburger restaurant on Ocean Avenue in an unnamed seaside community (informally known as “Seymour’s Bay” among the show’s writing staff). Series creator Loren Bouchard commented in a 2012 interview that the show’s location was an indeterminate Northeastern United States shore town. Entertainment writers have later described the show as being set in New Jersey, citing the season three episode “It Snakes a Village”. The restaurant is located in a two-floor building sandwiched between a funeral home and a building where tenants come and go on a regular basis, and the Belcher family lives in the apartment directly above the restaurant. Bob’s Burgers is a struggling restaurant situated on a commercial street that relies heavily on traffic from the local amusement park, Wonder Wharf, which is located on a pier at the end of Ocean Avenue and owned by Calvin Fischoeder, an eccentric millionaire who also owns many buildings in the town.
Success is not easy, as Bob must compete with several other eateries for business. His biggest rival is Jimmy Pesto’s Pizzeria, which is located right across the street and whose owner Bob particularly dislikes. Bob’s restaurant also has seen its fair share of bad luck. For example, in the show’s opening, the property falls victim to a fire, an infestation of vermin, and a utility pole that collapses when a car runs into it. In spite of all this, Bob does have a loyal but small group of regular customers including Mort, the owner of the funeral home, and Teddy, the local handyman. So if you are looking for a funny show that basis its plot off of burgers, then Bobs Burgers is the new show for you!
