In something of an upset, "Bob's Burgers" on Fox beat stalwarts "Futurama," "South Park," "TMNT" and "Archer" for the 2014 Outstanding Animated Program Emmy. At Saturday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, it beat its better known peers - winning its first award for Outstanding Animated Program.
The award was given for the episode "Mazel Tina," in which Bob Belcher's family learns a few lessons about Judaism and eldest daughter Tina tries to get a back-door invite to a popular classmate's party. The clip above is from that episode.
We mentioned Bob's Burgers a few months ago due to its James Bond spoof episode to close out last season. That was a fun episode in which Linda Belcher belted out a James Bond spoof.
Bob's Burgers follows the misadventures of a family operating a small independent hamburger restaurant in a boardwalk community. It is scheduled to begin its fifth season this fall on Fox, with reruns currently syndicated to the Adult Swim network.
Created by Loren Bouchard, a Home Movies veteran, "Bob's Burgers" is somewhat low-key compared to other animated shows. It beat the series finale of Futurama, South Park's "Black Friday," Nickelodeon's TMNT and Archer: Vice, - with which it shares lead voice-actor H. Jon Benjamin and has done a crossover.
The fifth season premiere is on 5 October 2014 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. Central on Fox.
