Get ready for the 100th episode of ‘Bob’s Burgers’ with extra-rare performers from seasons past!

Welcome, Bob’s Burgers fans, to this VERY special edition of Bob’s Burgers Extra-Rare Performer! For the past season of Bob’s Burgers, I’ve been making an argument for which member of the Belcher crew stole the show each week. This coming Sunday, May 22, will mark not only the season 6 finale, but also the series’ 100th episode! How freaking exciting is that!

To celebrate, I’ve complied a list of 10 extra-rare performers from seasons past. This was super hard to do, because, well, I had so many episodes to choose from! The list is filled with wonderful supporting characters from some simply magical episodes of Bob’s Burgers.


So here we go … sound off in the comments if your favorite didn’t make the list — or just share how much you love this all of these extra-rare characters!

Season 1 | Episode 2 | “Crawl Space” –Kuchi Kopi


To get away from his in-laws, Bob hides in the apartment/restaurant crawl space. Louise’s toy, Kuchi Kopi, acts as Bob’s only friend and conscience.

Season 2 | Episode 2 | “Bob Day Afternoon” –Mickey


The bank across from the restaurant is being robbed, and Bob gets pulled into all the drama. Cue the dysfunctional and failed bank robber, Mickey, whose only real goal in life is not having his pants fall down while being arrested.

Season 2 | Episode 3 | “Food Truckin” –Randy


This is the second time Bob’s Burgers fans meet Randy. In this episode, Randy convinces Bob to buy a food truck and drive off to a music festival. Randy is always on-trend, whether it be documentary filmmaking or owning a food truck.

Season 3 | Episode 9 | “Bob Rest Ye Merry Gentle-Mannequins” –Chet


After the Belcher family finds a man (Chet) living in a Bob’s uncle’s storage locker, they decide that since it is so close to the holidays, they’ll let Chet to stay in the basement. Sure, Chet makes beautiful window displays that the locals love, but he’s is searching for the one that got away — she just happens to be the mannequin from the sex shop.

Season 4 | Episode 2 | “Fort Night” –Millie


It’s another classic Bob’s Burgers Halloween episode. Louise denies her frenemy, Millie, the chance to go trick-or-treating with the Belcher-kid gang. So Millie goes full on single white female and traps the gang in their fort.

Season 4 | Episode 13 | “Mazel-Tina” –Tammy


No one is truly surprised that Tammy is a total bat-zilla, but that’s why we love/hate Tammy. She is so wickedly awful that you can’t help but enjoy every artful insult she throws out. Plus, Jenny Slate is a freaking goddess!

Season 4 | Episode 17 | “The Equestranauts” –Bronconius


Nothing is better than a grown man dressed as a pink horse, and that is simply all one needs to do to win this title. Bob goes undercover to get Tina’s favorite toy horse back when he meets Bronconius. Bronconius is the devilish leader of an Equestranauts fan club who steals Equestranauts toys from little girls.

Season 5 | Episode 13 | “The Gayle Tales” –Aunt Gayle


In what is arguably one of the best episodes of Bob’s Burgers ever, the Belcher children each create a short story featuring Aunt Gayle and Scott Bakula to help a heartbroken Gayle. Of course, Gayle loves every one of the stories because they are ALL about her.

Season 5 | Episode 19 | “Housetrap” –Helen


The Belcher family, along with Teddy, is trapped at fancy lady Helen’s home overnight due to a storm. Both Louise and Linda accuse Helen of murdering her husband, but Helen’s calm and welcoming personality changes their minds … but is Helen a killer? We may never know.

Season 5 | Episode 20 | “Hawk & Chick” –Hawk


Bob and Louise make it their mission to reunite Hawk, their favorite martial-arts film star, with his on-screen partner and real-life daughter, Chick. Hawk, a sweet man who is thrilled to meet the Belchers, just wants to make things right with his action star–turned-accountant daughter. This episode tugs at the heartstrings. Nothing is more precious then seeing Louise and Bob work together.

And that’s a wrap! Until next time, stay fresh, Bob’s Burgers fans!

Bob’s Burgers airs Sundays at 8:30/7:30c on Fox.

The 100th episode airs this Sunday at 9:30/8:30c on Fox.
