'Art Crawl' (Season One)
"This was a big deal for us. It's kind of a sillier premise — these animal anuses — but it worked perfectly. The story seems organic and silly at the same time, and Bob goes nuts, which is always fun. Plus it's about art! From the beginning, we wanted the show to be a portrait of an artist. Bob's Burgers is not about a guy trying to run a business; it's really about a guy trying to follow his artistic urges. The business isn't struggling because of anything sad-sacky, it's because Bob insists on this certain standard. He doesn't want anyone else working there, he wants to make these burgers of the day, and he may be in the wrong market for that. [Laughs] With the exception of Mort and Teddy, the neighbors may not appreciate the artist in their midst. It's always been important that Bob seems really good; he probably makes fantastic burgers. He will insist on making them the way he likes to make them, and his family completely supports him."
