What is ‘Bob’s Burgers’ about?
Bob’s Burgers first aired in 2011. The animated comedy series centers around Bob and Linda Belcher and their children Tina, Gene, and Louise. The family struggles to keep their burger restaurant afloat in the face of adversity. Bob faces off against the rival restaurant next door, Jimmy Pesto’s, and a health inspector out to get him.
Some of the funniest parts of the show come from Bob’s dry sense of humor, Linda’s outlandish personality, and the couple’s unique children. The series also features an impressive lineup of guest stars. The kids have gotten into all kinds of trouble throughout the years, from robbing a train to starting a gambling ring in the basement of the restaurant.
