There are hardly any shows on television better suited to doing amazing Thanksgiving episodes than “Bob’s Burgers.” Fox’s animated comedy about burger chef Bob (H. Jon Benjamin), his extrovert wife Linda (John Roberts) and lovable weirdo kids (Kristen Schaal, Eugene Mirman, Dan Mintz) is very funny, offbeat and warm, and always at its best whenever everyone in the family has to come together to celebrate some occasion without completely losing their minds. And given the fact that much of the show takes place in and around Bob’s restaurant, this holds especially true for any event centered on the sharing of food.
