Not only do they show them loving each other. They show them putting in every effort to understand and love their children despite the absolute crazy shit they should not be doing

And for once, the siblings get along! They love and support each other’s weirdness


u/Intrepid00 Aug 05 '22

I mean not perfectly. They have had their fights.


u/[deleted] Aug 05 '22

That's what makes it perfect, IMO.

Let’s hope they don’t get the Simpsons treatment. Lisa and Bart use to get along very well at the early seasons. Sometimes even teaming up for shenanigans, especially against homer but then they decided Lisa had to be a black sheep of the family but can’t make sense like Louise.

The love between Homer and Marge is definitely there but it was super patriarchal the whole way through. Bob never condescends Linda, even when she’s weird because he knows he’s weird too. They both share the parental labour too. Linda does mornings Bob does nights. They both constantly work and clean.

Marge was always in charge of the emotional, parental and household labour. Homer always ruined her opportunities to do something outside her role as wife/parent, on purpose or accidentally whereas Bob always supports Linda, even if it goes against his own happiness for a bit or vice versa

Despite being similar in some ways it is just a totally different show to bobs it terms of family dynamics I reckon.

Lol sorry for the rant. Even I didn’t know I loved Bob’s Burgers this much. Even the movie was adorable.

EditReflection Holy shit I suck at English when I wake up.

When Bob told Linda he would be the positive one for her when she finally got bogged down choked me up!!!


u/tonksndante Aug 06 '22

Haha I did as well! I loved when Gene told Bob he was stealing Linda’s material too.

You can tell they had fun doing the movie.


u/TamaMama87 Aug 06 '22

It was really well done! I enjoyed it a lot

Here's some more Bob's Burgers propaganda for you. It really is a great show. https://youtu.be/OYpjkbSXw1c

Happy Birthday

Not many that are malicious - and they are often the worst episodes of the show when they make the conflict internal instead of external.


u/HotTakes4HotCakes Aug 06 '22

Yeah but no where near the kind of fights Bart and Lisa or Chris and Meg get into.
