Nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 2013, as well as in 2012, the cult-hit series about a man, his family and their burger joint follows the ups and downs of BOB (H. Jon Benjamin), who runs Bob's Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, but his family falls short on service. Despite the greasy counters and lousy location, Bob and his family are determined to make every "Grand Re-Re-Re-opening" a success.
Bob's wife, LINDA (John Roberts), stands by her man, though she's easily distracted. Their eldest daughter, 13-year-old TINA (Dan Mintz), has minimal social skills and is a hopeless romantic. Middle child GENE (Eugene Mirman), the only boy in the family, is an aspiring musician with a thirst for life. LOUISE (Kristen Schaal) is the bunny ears-wearing youngest daughter with an off-kilter sense of humor that makes her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen - and with the public.
Bob's Burgers is a 20th Century FOX Television and Bento Box Entertainment production. The series was created by Loren Bouchard ("Home Movies"). Bouchard and Jim Dauterive ("King of the Hill") serve as executive producers and writers.
