Behind the scenes
First "Human Flesh"
Voiced by John Roberts
When I die I want you to cremate me and throw my ashes in Tom Selleck's face.
— Linda

Linda Belcher is the wife of Bob Belcher and the mother of Gene, Louise and Tina. She is voiced by John Roberts. She personifies several Jewish wife/mother stereotypes. 

Personality

Linda supports her husband Bob's dream through thick and thin. She has a joyful enthusiasm for whatever she undertakes, from dinner theater to synchronized swimming to road rage.

She is lenient and supportive toward her whole family, while still garnering their love and respect. She is especially kind to her unstable sister, Gayle, encouraging Bob to have a pretend affair with her to raise her self-esteem, and allowing Gayle to hang many anus-themed paintings in the restaurant.

Linda is substantiated by many bourgeois and motherly stereotypes. She is extremely outgoing, flamboyant, feminine, and has absurd obsessions with performing arts and dramatic tradition - she will occasionally take extreme measures to pursue these and make her family/bystanders join her in enacting this. She sings the most of all characters. 

She's always on the lookout for a surprise birthday party or unexpected anniversary present, and her faith in Bob is unwavering. She's prone to bursting into song after a visit to her beloved musical dinner theater, and though she thinks she's an excellent hostess, her blood boils when guests aren't willing to make small talk. Linda is a pushover, always being easily convinced by her kids to do all the work on their school projects, but she doesn’t think she’s a pushover.

Appearance

Linda is often seen wearing a red shirt with two buttons, her iconic red glasses, and wearing blue pants and yellow shoes with socks. Her skin and hair color are the same as her husband's. She also is seen mostly wearing an apron covering most of her shirt.

Trivia

  • Bob and Linda's wedding anniversary is September 3rd. Linda uses the "9 is divisible by 3" method to remember their anniversary date.
  • A major source of inspiration for Linda from John Roberts was his mother, and him mocking/making fun of her when he was a child.
  • Linda's birthday is June 3rd.
