How to Watch Bob’s Burgers Thanksgiving Episodes

Spend Thanksgiving with the Belchers and stream these classic Bob’s Burgers Turkey Day episodes.

The Belcher family has been trying to cook up the perfect Thanksgiving for 11 of 13 seasons of Bob’s Burgers—they’ve even succeeded a couple of times. Watching Bob transform from a mild-mannered burger flipper into a maniacal turkey chef has become a seasonal TV tradition.

We don’t yet have any information on 2023’s Thanksgiving episode, but we know that Bob’s Burgers Season 14 will have a shorted episode count due to the WGA strike. Will the Thanksgiving episode make the cut? While we wait for more info, let’s look back on the previous Bob’s Burgers Thanksgiving episodes (all of which are available to stream on Hulu).

7. “I Bob Your Pardon”

Season 9, Episode 7

11. “Putts-giving”

Season 13, Episode 8

The Belchers decide to spend Thanksgiving playing mini golf, but things don’t go well for Linda as Bob constantly does better than her. Oh, and the kids are causing plenty of chaos, too. It wouldn’t be Putts-giving without some heavy property damage.
