Watch Bob's Burgers

Bob's Burgers is an animated sitcom targeted towards an adult viewing audience and broadcast by Fox. The series depicts the Belcher family and their daily experiences with running the hamburger restaurant, Bob's Burgers, named after its owner Bob Belcher. The Belchers, dad Bob and mom Linda, and their three children Tina, Gene, and Louise all work together avidly to keep the restaurant afloat and offer their customers what they perceive to be one of a kind menu options. As the oldest children, Tina and Gene are expected to help out around the restaurant. Even the youngest sibling Louise, who likely shows the most excitement over working for her dad, is often seen lending a hand in the family restaurant.

As a restaurateur, Bob is very creative in developing new menu items that are displayed daily on his outside menu board. However, his business management, cleanliness, and customer service skills may leave much to be desired. In many episodes, Bob's Burgers is depicted as an unorganized, unsanitary burger joint with greasy counters and unhealthy food options. Unfortunately, the restaurant's location is not optimal for maximum customer attraction either: Bob's next door shop neighbor and friend Mort owns It's Your Funeral Home and Crematorium. On the flip side, a seaside attraction amusement park called the Wonder Wharf is located right down the street from Bob's restaurant.

Bob's Burgers also has a hefty rival, Bob's arch nemesis Jimmy Pesto, who owns a Pizzeria right across the street and loves stealing Bob's potential customers. Unfortunately for Bob, his daughter Tina depicted as a quiet, yet romantic thirteen year old is smitten by Jimmy's oldest son Jimmy Jr. To make matters worse, Bob's youngest daughter Louise is friends with Jimmy's twin sons Andy and Olly, who are likely just as energetic as she is. Bob's middle child Gene, a quirky boy who plans on becoming musician when he grows up, is the known prankster of the show and enjoys the occasional practical joke.

While his business is not always running smoothly, Bob does have the support of his family to help him achieve his dream, because he makes them believe that his unique burgers will bring them enormous success.

Although the show is depicted as a lively and colorful cartoon, its crude humor and suggestive language make it inappropriate for a child audience. Past episodes have been based on adult and taboo topics such as cannibalistic food choices, necrophilia, and zombies.
