• The table read for this episode took place on January 13, 2017, the first to take place in 2017 and later aired as the Season 8 premiere episode.
  • The animation for this episode is entirely based on fan-submitted artwork selected through a fan art contest (The Bob’s Burgers Fan Art AKA Fart contest). Artists were asked to supply their own take on the title sequence (in video form), background scenes (in drawing form), and character drawings.[1] All artists credited are listed below.
  • Scenes from this episode were previewed at the show's panel at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con International.
  • A live table reading of this episode took place along with a Q&A at PaleyFest LA on March 24, 2017. Actor Paul F. Tompkins filled in for Kevin Kline as the voice of Calvin Fischoeder.[2]
  • This episode premiered on guest star Zach Galifianakis's 48th birthday.
  • Gene suggests that Felix hides in The Upside Down, a parallel dimension to the real world from the popular Netflix drama, Stranger Things.
  • Some of the artist's renderings include features that are usually not visible in their normal designs including teeth and several character's ears. Linda's shirt collar also changes between its current v-neck and the former button-up or both designs in some renderings.
  • At the brunch skunks' table, a character who strongly resembles, or seemingly is, Logan Bush appears.
  • A PDF coloring book featuring submissions was made available to download from the show's official web page on's%20Burgers%20Fan%20Art%20Coloring%20Book%20(1).pdf
  • Like in "Paraders of the Lost Float" it isn't explained how Gene re-acquired the sasquatch mask he uses for his Beefsquatch persona from Peter Pescadero.
  • During the scene where Linda imagines her and the kids as Sex and the City characters, a cross-section of the New Bacon-ings Burger from The Bob's Burgers Burger Book can be seen on the wall in place of the usual burger cross-section.
  • Like in the show's crossover with Archer, "Fugue and Riffs", the Belchers are depicted with brown eyes in some of the artists' renderings of the characters. Courtney Wheeler also previously alluded to Gene's eye color in "The Gene & Courtney Show," describing a chocolate and vanilla swirl pudding cup being colored like them.
  • First episode with a title sequence not to feature the standard mix of "The Bob's Burgers Theme Song." A rock-oriented version accompanies the Fan Art title sequence.
  • This is the first episode of Bob's Burgers to feature live action footage and real-life imagery. Drew Tetz's submission consists of a phénakisticope disc being spun on a vinyl record creating the illusion of short looping animated clips of Jimmy Jr. dancing in "The Belchies," Teddy hip-hop dancing in "Bob Actually," and Tina practising her ginga in "Sexy Dance Fighting." Some fan art submissions have cut-outs of real-life imagery.
  • This episode starts and ends with the same establishing shot, designed by Susan Oltman.
  • First episode to credit Soundtrack Boston as a recording studio. Eugene Mirman, voice of Gene, relocated to Woods Hole, MA from Brooklyn, NY in 2016 and records his lines from Boston.[3]
  • This is the only episode to have more than one Store Next Door and Pest Control Truck in the title sequence.
  • The stop-motion sequence was guest directed by Emmy Award-winning director Michael Granberry, known for his work on Tumble Leaf.[4]
  • First episode where someone refers to Bob as Robert, just about confirming that Bob is short for it.
  • A total of 2.93 million households watched this episode, up 0.33 million on the Season 7 premiere, "Flu-ouise."[5]
  • On October 12, 2017, Fox's official website made available a "fan cut" of this episode with the individual fan artists credited when their work appears on screen.[6]
  • In the anime style scene, the characters' mouths move somewhat independently of their speech (unlike the usual close mirroring of speech sounds in the facial animation), possibly as a reference to how the English dubs typically don't line up with the animation in anime.
  • On December 8, 2017, it had been announced that writers Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux had been nominated for a Writers Guild of America award in the animation category.[7]
  • Towards the beginning of the episode, Louise references the 1996 film "Jerry Maguire".


  • When Gene enters the restaurant as Brunchsquatch, only the last two letters on the logo of First Oceanside Savings Bank are visible.
  • When Calvin tries to unmask Felix, the mouth of the mask opens and shuts like it's part of a real mouth and is not rigid, unlike in other animation styles where the mask mouth is open but the performer's mouth can be seen moving.
  • Linda's apron is missing for the entire scene when she seats Dalton and his entourage, she is seen wearing it in most other scenes while she is working in the restaurant. It is also missing in the shot when the police car pulls away.
