Bob's Burgers is an American animated television series. The series centers on a small, struggling hamburger restaurant run by the Belcher family: parents Bob and Linda, and their children Tina, Gene, and Louise. It premiered in 2011 and has run for 7 seasons so far. The series has proved to be very popular in original run, syndication, and on Netflix.
The voice cast has notably crossed-over into the canon of Archer, in which it is revealed that Sterling Archer assumes the identity of Bob while in a fugue state. This is due to the fact that H. Jon Benjamin voices both lead characters of their respective shows.
A running gag on the show is the "Burger of the Day" chalkboard behind the counter. The burger titles are always puns on the burgers' special ingredients. The gag inspired at least one cook to create their own versions of the burgers, and eventually led to an officially licensed cookbook.
Other popular ships include LouWheeze, which pairs Louise with Regular-Sized Rudy. Ever since the events of ‘Bob Actually’, the ship has soared in popularity, and been considered at least semi-canon by most fans.
Tina Belcher/Josh isn’t as popular as Tina/Jimmy Jr., but still popular enough in its own right.
