Bob’s Burgers is known for being a rather wholesome show, but even these quirky characters have dark sides
Bob’s Burgers focuses on the Belcher family as they run the eponymous burger joint, where they run into all types of people from the city and the kids’ school.
While Bob and his family are pretty average folk, they tend to run into very peculiar people and situations, to say the least. With that in mind, here are the 10 worst things that the cast of Bob’s Burgers has done.
Bob: Not Supporting Tina
The first person on this list is the burger man himself, Bob. Bob mostly takes a backseat to his wife and children’s shenanigans but he does have some flaws, though. Like most people, Bob can fly off the handle sometimes and get very irradiated very quickly and lash out.
In “Sexy Dance Fighting,” Bob was jealous that Tina was spending all of her time at a capoeira and not working at the restaurant. He would not support her and even went to the class just to embarrass her. Specifically, he reprimanded her in front of everyone for skipping her shift at the restaurant. While he just missed his daughter, he went overboard in this episode.
Linda: Selling Bob’s Espresso Machine Behind His Back
Linda is Bob’s funny outgoing wife. One of the greatest things about Linda is that she supports Bob’s dream of being a burger man and has a smile on her face throughout the whole journey. She will do anything to make her family happy, even if it means taking something else from a different family member.
In the episode “The Unnatural,” Bob gets a new espresso machine for the restaurant and Gene has his first baseball game. When he causes his team to lose, Linda takes Gene to special baseball classes to help improve his skills. While her intentions were good, she sold Bob’s espresso machine behind his back in order to get the money to fund the classes.
Tina: Getting A Whole Class Of Junior Lifeguards Expelled
Tina is a great big sister and the greatest daughter one could have, but her boy-craze gets herself and others in trouble. In the episode “Boywatch,” she spots some other teens doing sugar cookies on the beach and wants to join. She investigates and learns they are a bunch of junior lifeguards.
She joins the team just to be able to see cute boys, but she can barley swim. With her lack of knowledge about the sea and saving people, she gets the other guards expelled from the course. While she saves the day in the end, it was still selfish of her join just to see the boys. She put all swimmers in danger by claiming to be a lifeguard.
Gene: Staying In A Relationship Because Of her Father’s Stuff
“The Unbearable Like-Likeness of Gene” is an episode about Gene and his new girlfriend Courtney. Gene does not like Courtney at all but ends up in the relationship because she likes him a lot. When he finally goes over to her house to call it quits, he learns that her dad is a jingle maker. Gene instantly thinks her dad is super cool and loves all the awesome music equipment he has. Then, Gene goes on pretending to like Courtney a lot, just to have access to the equipment.
At Courtney’s birthday party, though, everything goes south. Gene ends up yelling at Courtney in front of everyone, but when he is done yelling, Courtney can’t catch her breath and is sent to the hospital. While Courtney’s dad had a lot of cool stuff, Gene should have just broken up with her.
Louise: Stealing Her Parents’ Credit Card
In the episode “The Hawkening: Look Who’s Hawking Now!” Bob’s Burgers plans to host a Hawk And Chick screening. To run the film reel of the movie, they need a $1,000 deposit. Bob and Linda can’t afford it, so they plan to call it off. That changes when Louise steals their credit card and buys it herself.
On top of that, she does not care about regular size Rudy’s broken arm and she never signed it even though he wanted her to. She was too busy thinking about the movie premiere. Lousie really showed her selfish side in this episode, but in the end, made it all better.
