A third-generation restaurateur, Bob Belcher has big ideas about burgers, condiments and sides—but only a few thoughts on customer service and business management. His misadventures in fast food are chronicled in the animated series Bob’s Burgers, where the focus of each episode typically boils down to three essential ingredients: a man, his family and their burger joint.
Bob’s Burgers was created by Loren Bouchard (Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil), whose talents include animator, voice actor, screenwriter, producer, television director and composer. He conceived the show after developing the series Home Movies many years earlier. With consecutive nominations for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 2012 and 2013, Bob’s Burgers finally bagged the prize in 2014.
