Bob's Burgers Preview: 2011 Midseason Fox Animated Comedy image
Set to join Foxís lineup next year is their new animated comedy series Bobís Burgers. The series follows a family that runs a failing burger joint. Videos ahead!

Not slated to air until midseason 2011, Bobís Burgers features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal. From the description below (and the video clips) it appears as though a few of the female characters will be voiced by male actors, which I guess isnít so surprising, given that the voice of Bart in Foxís longrunning animated comedy The Simpsons is done by a woman (Nancy Cartwright). Below is Foxís description for Bobís Burgers.



BOBíS BURGERS is a new animated series about a man, his family and a burger joint. A third-generation restaurateur, BOB BELCHER (H. Jon Benjamin, FAMILY GUY, Archer) runs Bobís Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, condiments and sides, but only a few thoughts on customer service and business management. Despite his greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves.

Even though business is slow, Bob gets to work with his family. His wife, LINDA BELCHER (John Roberts, The Christmas Tree, Jackie & Debra), supports Bobís dream through thick and thin (but truth be told, sheís getting a little sick of the thin). Their eldest daughter, TINA (Dan Mintz, Important Things with Demetri Martin, The Andy Milonakis Show), is a 13-year-old hopeless romantic with minimal social skills. Middle child GENE (Eugene Mirman, Flight of the Conchords, Aqua Teen Hunger Force) is an aspiring musician and a prankster who serves up more jokes than burgers. Their youngest, LOUISE (Kristen Schaal, Flight of the Conchords, Modern Family), is the most enthusiastic about her dadís business, but an off-balance sense of humor and her elevated energy level make her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen.

Beyond the restaurant is a city rich with character. Next door to Bobís is Itís Your Funeral Home and Crematorium; down the street is Wonder Wharf, the oceanside amusement pier; and a few blocks away is Wagstaff Middle School, where Bob and Lindaís kids go to school. And across the street is Jimmy Pestoís Pizzeria, Bobís Burgersí main competition and the thorn in Bobís side.
