[NYCC 2014 Interview] H. Jon Benjamin and Larry Murphy (Bob’s Burgers)

Bob’s Burgers is not only one of the funniest and best cartoons on TV right now, it’s also one of the best TV series currently airing. Over the past three years, the show has grown into a mainstream pop culture success, continuing FOX’s trend as cultivating successful Sunday night animated shows. Whether you love Tina’s awkward sexual awakening, Louise’s maniacal plans, Gene’s naivety, Bob’s unconditional love for his family, Linda’s hopeful optimism, or any of the supporting characters’ quirks and charms, there’s something to love in the show created by Loren Bouchard.

During New York Comic Con 2014, I had the chance to sit in during the Bob’s Burgers roundtable interviews. In lieu of participating myself, I decided to shoot video of the press date, giving everybody a behind-the-scenes look at what press days are like for those not working in the media. In this first video, H. Jon Benjamin and Larry Murphy, the voices of Bob and Teddy respectively, had a conversation with my table, discussing various points as Tina’s origins, working with Bouchard and the rest of the cast, and what to expect in this new season (including the debut of Bob’s father!).

Watch the video below, and keep your eyes peeled for the second video tomorrow!
