It’s time to celebrate! The 100th episode of “Bob’s Burgers” has arrived and the team behind the FOX animated series is getting ready to party the best way they know how: with an episode that reminds you just how much you love the Belcher family.
“For us, it feels hopefully like a classic ‘Bob’ episode,” creator Loren Bouchard tells Zap2it. “It’s like it could air in the first season.”
That means instead of going high concept, like many shows would to celebrate such an occasion, “Bob’s Burgers is doing what it does best: a very funny story set in the restaurant.
In the episode, “Glued, Where’s My Bob?,” Bouchard explains, “Bob suffers a very embarrassing and undignified fate at the worst possible time and the community both humiliates and ultimately celebrates him.” A description of the episode reveals a journalist is coming to interview bob for a local magazine when the kids’ “goop wars” land him in a “sticky situation.” That situation just happens to involve your favorite burger maker and a toilet.
It’s the perfect love letter to fans who have been loud and proud of their favorite animated series since day one — those who cosplay as the Belchers at Comic-Con or sell out the numerous “Bob’s Burgers Live” events that the cast and Bourchard put on. “There’s nothing like it in the world,” Bouchard says of meeting the show’s fans.
So here’s to episode 100 of “Bob’s Burgers” and hopefully another 100 or more to come. As long as they don’t forget the recipe to what makes a perfect episode, there’s no reason to hang the closed sign on this show.
“Bob’s Burgers” airs Sundays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
