    I love Bob's Burgers, with that said I'm surprised at how bad this looks. I hope they figure out ho to make it work, but not too optimistic they will.

    A musical? Different strokes I'm sure, but I personally have a distaste for musicals. The trailer minimizes that aspect. Concerts? Yay! But no musicals.

    The old lady with the dog looks like The Mother animation from Pink Floyd The Wall.

    It's literally the same universe with some character overlap.

    With that said it's a different story. No restaurant and different main characters.
