The 10 Most Hilarious Episodes Of ‘Bob’s Burgers’

Where to Stream

Bob's Burgers

The Belchers: Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene, and Louise live above their burger joint, Bob’s Burgers, on the boardwalk of an undisclosed shore town. Being stationed right across the street from the best restaurant in town, Jimmy Pesto’s, is tough, but running the family business as a unit is much tougher.

Bob (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) and Linda (John Roberts) are your average blue collar couple raising three eccentric kids. Their oldest, pubescent Tina (Dan Mintz), is constantly preoccupied with unicorns and zombies, friend fiction, Jimmy Pesto Jr., and her newly formed boobs while Gene (Eugene Mirman), the dim-witted middle child, can be found sporting wearable buns to support the family biz. Louise (Kristen Schaal), the youngest and feistiest, is always planning her next prank and never seen without her beloved bunny ears.

Since its debut in 2011, Bob’s Burgers has been compared to the Simpsons in its wit while awkward Tina has been praised as one of the most brilliant female characters on TV right now between her unabashed love of mens butts and very open chronicling about the difficulties of blossoming into a smart, strong, sensual woman. After a bit of an uneven start in its first season, the show has quickly become an instant classic and simply because we can’t get enough, we’ve picked out the very best episodes available to stream.

"Bad Tina" Season 2, Episode 8

Meanwhile, Bob and Linda go to see a hand-clapping Broadway show, Cake, which Bob thought he’d loath, but afterwards, he can’t stop Cake-ing.

MVP Moment: While reading her Erotic Friend Fiction to the whole cafeteria Tina proses, “It was lunch time… Touching butts had been banned by the horrible Master Frond.

This episode stands out for being hilarious sure, but the remark on the desperate state of affiliate news is spot on.
