How 'Bob's Burgers' Fully Hit Its Stride in Season Four

Bob’s Burgers has reached its prime. Like Seinfeld and The Simpsons before it, the fourth season can be seen as the moment when Bob’s Burgers really hit its stride, featuring episodes filled with creativity and experimentation that perfected what works about the show while pushing it forward. Fox’s oddball comedy celebrates society’s weirdos and finds humanity at the heart of every laugh, making it one of the most original, awkward, and heartwarming shows on TV. Creator Loren Bouchard has built a safe space for comedians and animators to indulge in their own quirks, which continues to pay off. Episode after episode, Bob’s Burgers reveals itself to be about more than [...]

'Bob's Burgers' Is Releasing a Music Album

Fox's Bob's Burgers has frequently featured top-notch original music since its early days, and it's finally all being collected for an album. Creator Loren Bouchard says that a deal to release a Bob's Burgers album has been finalized, and that it'll be coming out this fall on iTunes. There aren't any more details on the album beyond that, but hopefully, it'll include such instant classics as "Electric Love" and "Will You Be Mine (Coal Mine)." Bob's Burgers makes its midseason premiere this Sunday at a new time, 7pm.

Talking to Loren Bouchard About 'Bob’s Burgers', 'Home Movies', and Pitching Shows About Cannibals and the Devil

Despite the occasional talking toilet, eight-year-old auteur, and Satanic family member, the works of Loren Bouchard are surprisingly grounded for cartoon shows. Creator of Adult Swim favorites Home Movies and Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil, Bouchard has an ear for naturalistic dialogue that verges on the improvised, and a knack for making the most outlandish characters and plots seem mundanely relatable. The organic vibe is one he’s honed since his start as a producer and writer for Comedy Central’s Dr. Katz, one of the first shows to commit free-wheeling conversations between comedians to animation.

His latest creation, the wonderful Bob’s Burgers, has quietly established itself as one of [...]

'The Simpsons' Are Crossing Over with Basically Every Other Fox Cartoon This Season

Over the course of last year, several big events slated for the 26th season of The Simpsons were revealed including a Futurama crossover episode, a Family Guy crossover episode, and the death of a character who has appeared on the show at least twice. At TCA over the weekend, a few more details were revealed about all three events, including that the Family Guy/Simpsons crossover episode — which will air as Family Guy's season premiere on September 28th — will also cross over into Bob's Burgers territory. From EW:

In addition to featuring Homer, his family, and various Springfield residents, Family Guy will include a [...]

'Bob's Burgers' Is Getting the Comic Book Treatment This Summer

Fox's hit animated show Bob's Burgers is getting a comic book spin-off this summer. THR reports that Bob's Burgers: The Comic Book — written and created by writers and artists of the show — is set for a release this August from Dynamite Entertainment. Here's a statement from series creator Loren Bouchard:

If you like Bob's Burgers and you like comic books, then you may feel like you're living in one of the greatest times in human history, because Bob's Burgers and comic books are coming together in the form of Bob's Burgers: The Comic Book. Of course, we could really mess it up. Then you'd feel like [...]

'Bob's Burgers' Fourth Season Has Made the Show Even Better by Shaking Things Up

We're at about the halfway point of season four of Bob's Burgers, and the show has smartly shaken up its formula. Bouchard and his writers have heightened what we know about the characters by frequently moving them outside of their comfort zone of the titular burger joint; “A River Runs Through Bob” was a strong place to start this season, because it gave the Belchers nothing but themselves to rely on. By the end of the episode, Bob and Linda (H. Jon Benjamin and John Roberts, respectively) were reduced to a pair of feral, worm-sucking woodspeople. Instead of engaging with outside forces, they were forced react to each other, a [...]

'Bob's Burgers' Returns with an Episode Away From Bob's Burgers, and It Works

For three seasons, Bob’s Burgers has been based in one primary location: Bob’s Burgers. Like Cheers, the restaurant contained an endless amount of hilarious stories that allowed Bob and his family to relate to the world around them. The outside world came to them, and at no point has this felt tired or old.

Season four opener, “A River Runs Through Bob,” makes a preemptive strike on the formula and changes things up before Burgers gets stale. Rather than continuing to give fans more of the same, the show moves the family to the great outdoors and away from the previously established world and characters.

Fox Renews 'Bob's Burgers' for a Sixth Season

Fox just did the right thing and renewed its animated series Bob's Burgers for a 22-episode sixth season. Here's the official statement from Fox network chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman: We can't help but love the Belcher family. This gem of a series is a rare feel-good blend of sharp wit and genuine heart that fans and critics alike have continued to love throughout its five seasons on Fox. We are proud of Loren and Jim and the extremely talented voice cast who bring these unique characters to life with both humor and charm each week. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for [...]

'Rick and Morty', 'Bob's Burgers', and 'American Dad!': Three Cartoons at Three Stages of Life

Due to the nature of animation, cartoons can last a lot longer than live action shows. Characters don't age, so the 4th grade can be played out dozens of times in a row without the threat of puberty ever setting in. But as the 25th season of The Simpsons reminds us each week, that doesn't necessarily mean they should last forever. The writing gets stale, storylines get re-used, and as Lisa Simpson reminded us was when The Simpsons was still in its prime, the characters can't have the same impact they once had. With that mind, let's take a look at three animated comedies at different stages in their [...]
