On Sunday Animation Domination Season aired their Halloween specials. Even though I was that interested in watching The Simpsons or the Family Guy episodes I was particularly excited to see what Bobs Burgers had in store for us. Bobs Burgers is one of my favourite animated shows due to it’s heartwarming storylines and it’s kind nature. I’ve enjoyed every one of their Halloween episodes so far and I was excited to see what they had in store for us this time round!
On Halloween night, Linda tries to impress the kids by taking them to look for a wolf that has been terrorizing the town. Meanwhile, an injured and medicated Bob believes that Teddy has turned into a werewolf.
Linda is my favourite animation mom. Unlike Marge or Louis Linda can hold her own and is absolutely hilarious without the need of Bob. Linda went slightly overboard in trying to impress the kids (she doesn’t have to, she’s cool enough) but I’ve come to realise that some Bobs Burgers episodes have very exaggerated storylines but they still work so well!
The episodes was funny and very enjoyable. I enjoyed both storylines and the whole Bob doped on painkillers was a great side story and Linda leading the kids into the scary park to find the werewolf is a very linda thing to do. I’ll be honest I wasn’t as blown away with this episode as I was with The Hauntening. The Hauntening episode had me at the edge of my seat (for, you know, an animated show) so maybe I was expecting something similar.
The costumes the kids had one were cute. I loved Louise’s Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men costume. I wouldn’t have even thought of that and it’s perfect for her, and you cannot forget Linda as a Cher-iff. Brilliant costume!!
Overall 8/12 out of 10
