The initial Bob's Burgers pilot, which was rejected by Fox back in the day, has surfaced online. Uploaded onto YouTube in 2012, this Flash-animated sample emphasizes the hallmarks of any Loren Bouchard-created show: sharp writing and amazing character dialogue.



And even though most of the writing stays intact in the actual pilot that aired, we like to think that this version was given the cut because everyone's favorite butt-loving, smart, strong, sensual woman, Tina, wasn't part of the original cast. Good move, Fox.
