Kids & Teens

    Josh 
Voiced by: Ben Schwartz

A boy that Tina searches for in Lindapendent Woman. She met him behind the milk fridge. Not being able to see his face, the only way to recognize him is by a turtle bite on his index finger that was covered by a bandage. In the end he meets Tina face to face, kisses her, and receives Tina's phone number. Like Jimmy, he's also a dancer, focusing on ballet.


  • Betty and Veronica: The approachable Betty to Jimmy, Jr.'s hard-to-get Veronica.
  • Camp Straight: He takes ballet and has an interest in Tina. His interactions with Douglas suggest he's not interested in men.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Originally a relatively minor character in his debut episode, only having two scenes.
  • Incompatible Orientation: Hinted at with his friend Douglas from performance school trying to interfere with his talking with Tina.
  • Nice Guy: He's more open and similar to Tina than Jimmy Junior is.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The technician (he's been taking ballet for years) to Jimmy Jr's performer (dances how he feels).
  • Will They or Won't They?: With Tina — he's genuinely interested in her, but she's more into Jimmy Jr.

    Sasha 
Voiced by: Jon Daly
A preppy boy from King's Head Island who is often at odds with the Belcher Kids.
  • Enemy Mine: He doesn't really have any problem with teaming up with the Belchers when the enemy they're facing is someone he dislikes or when he can get something off of that companionship. This has so far included shaming a man from a family that he hates and ruining her bratty niece's birthday party.

Adults

    Calvin Fischoeder 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr_fischoeder.png
Voiced by: Kevin Kline

The richest man in town, and landlord to about half its population (including both Bob and Jimmy).


  • Affably Evil: Downplayed — "evil" is kind of a stretch with him (Chaotic Neutral, sure), but it's clear there's basically nothing stopping him from just doing that. He's rarely even directly antagonistic to Bob, but still regularly gets Bob in trouble, not counting rent problems.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Calvin sometimes gets distracted by Bob's arm hair when talking to him, apparently because it reminds him of his father.
  • Big Bad: Despite his affable nature towards the Belcher family, he does have a number of questionable ventures and schemes that are hinted at. He owns most of the properties in the city as well, likely making him the most powerful antagonist in the setting... were he to ever actually be more antagonistic.
  • Cain and Abel: With his brother Felix. He's Abel.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Wonder Wharf is rife with rigged games and safety issues, and is apparently staffed exclusively by criminals. His other business ventures are implied to be even worse—he once implied that he employs children as coal miners, and from there, things get...darker.
    Bob: What if you found out that someone you knew was doing something sort of bad, and you were helping them do that sort of bad thing?
    Mr. Fischoeder: Is it me? Is it abortions?
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has no shortage of jabs towards Bob.
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: In Dawn of the Peck, he asks Felix if anyone got out of the wharf after they locked it down to prevent the mad birds from escaping. Felix confirms that everyone is trapped inside, and it's not like anyone would believe them anyway... except they were still on live TV when they were confirming this.
    • This is a common problem of his: he regularly and openly tells people (mostly the Belchers) of his less than legal actions at the drop of a hat.
  • Eccentric Millionaire: Is by far more "eccentric" than actually "evil", and you get the feeling that his immense wealth and power has insulated him from normal human behavior.
  • Eyepatch of Power: The richest man in the city, and he owns most of the properties as well.
  • Eye Scream: His eye was cut out by his younger brother Felix.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He seems to have a genuine liking to the Belchers, even if he does unethical things.
  • Karma Houdini: Due to his status, he tends to be able to foist off his actions without any repercussions.
    • Averted at the end of Dawn of the Peck, when some of the mad turkeys break into his home and attack him and Felix.
  • Pet the Dog: His debut episode shows him planning to evict Bob for his rent problems, until he tastes Bob's food, and extends his lease. It's implied that he gives Bob copious amount of slack due to the quality of his burgers and/or personal liking for the Belchers, rather than using the restaurant space for a more lucrative business. (In production order — his broadcast order debut has him giving Bob a temp job as a cabbie to bring in some extra money.)
  • Punny Name: His last name sounds like fish odor.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Wears a white suit no matter what.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He seems to have more and more disregard for Bob's well-being as the series progresses. "Seaplane!" is a good example — it's made very clear that he could have very easily helped Bob directly and his neglect nearly gets the Belchers killed, but he's the only reason Bob knew to rescue Linda at all.
    • Zig-zagged in the season 5 finale. He seems to be willing to raise everyone's rent, and then just wants to cause great trouble for the Belchers, until it's revealed that he just feels slightly abandoned by Bob and wants to be friendlier. The rent hike, on the other hand, really was him being greedy and wanting to install a pool on his estate to attract women, but he's also willing to "postpone" that for a year or two.
  • Verbal Judo: What keeps him from being properly evil is his openness to being talked down, typically by Bob.
  • You Remind Me of X: He apparently likes Bob so much because Bob reminds him of his father, a "swarthy, hardworking immigrant" with "magnificent arm hair".

    Randy Watkins 
Voiced by: Paul F. Tompkins

A indie filmmaker and "trust-fund baby" who was introduced trying to protest meat-eating outside Bob's Restaurant. His later appearances have him as less antagonistic, but he still doesn't get along very well with Bob.


  • Giftedly Bad: He has a rather exaggerated view of his movie-making skills.
  • Hypocrite: He's a self-proclaimed animal rights fanatic, yet his treatment of Moolissa the cow amounts to minor bits of abuse and neglect. He glued a wig to its head, "milked" it and left it out in the rain.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He thinks he's far more well known and respected as a filmmaker than he really is. In his first appearance when he meets Bob for the first time, he starts getting visibly annoyed as Bob repeatedly makes it clear he's never heard of Randy or anything he's worked on.
  • Straw Vegetarian: He doesn't eat meat, and tends to be a pompous jerk about it.

    Ron 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/g52uarx.jpg
Voiced by: Ronald Lynch

Hugo's partner and only friend.


  • Adorkable: In the same vain as Mort and Randy.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Even he thought it was desperate for Hugo to agree to help Linda on Bob's birthday by calling his parents and make it sound like she regrets not marrying him.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Only with Hugo. Everyone else likes him just fine, but Hugo is generally rude to him even though he's the only person who likes him unironically.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Hugo.
  • Morality Chain: Usually the one to call Hugo out when he starts abusing his power to spite Bob.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: Constantly on the receiving end of this due to his meekness.
  • Nice Guy: In "My Fuzzy Valentine" he helps Bob and the kids try to find the Love tester machine Bob thought he and Linda used on their date. When Hugo refuses to help them despite knowing its location, Ron tells Bob Hugo's wrong for not helping them, and gives them the spare clipboard of places where it could be. And in "Best Burger" without hesitation, he helps the kids escape the store manager they stole the black garlic from, so they could help Bob win the competition.
  • Only Friend: The only person who genuinely likes Hugo.
  • Only Sane Man: Tries his best to curb Hugo's vendetta with Bob.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The calm rational Blue Oni to Hugo's petty, loudmouthed Red Oni.
  • Satellite Character: Until "Best Burger" in Season 5, he never appeared without Hugo.

    Trev 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trev_8.png

Voiced by: David Herman
A bartender who works for Jimmy Pesto and his right-hand man.
  • Ambiguously Gay: All of his interactions with Jimmy imply he's attracted to him.
  • Don't Explain the Joke: Whenever Jimmy makes a joke at Bob, Trev explains the context of it, annoying him.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Not fond of Jimmy Pesto making an apparent joke about mental illness.
  • Like a Son to Me: Jimmy vastly prefers Trev and said Trev was like the son he never had...right next to his other children, whom Jimmy is embarrassed of.
  • Nice Guy: When he's not around Jimmy Pesto, he's actually a pretty amiable guy. He in fact doesn't want to be mean to others, but is the only way to stay friends with him.
  • Undying Loyalty: The only person who seems to actually like Jimmy Pesto unironically.
  • Yes-Man: Around Jimmy, he backs him up at every insult or joke directed towards Bob (unless it's bad jokes using serious things).

    Jairo 

Jairo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bb_jairo.png
Voiced by: Jon Glaser
"It's. Not. Like. Jazzerxecise."
A sexy capoeira instructor for whom Tina gets a crush.

    Jen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bbjen_4647.png
Voiced by: Wendy Molyneux

Occasionally appears to babysit Gene, Tina and Louise. A generally meek person, she's usually thoroughly unprepared for their hijinks.


  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Don't tickle her unless you want her to punch you.
  • Epic Fail: Doesn't know how to use a microwave or understand what "bath time" is, despite those being basic knowledge for more than just a babysitter.
  • Extreme Doormat: Though she tries to honor Linda's instructions, she almost always lets the Belcher kids get her to do what they want her to do.
  • Hates Being Touched: If you touch her even a little bit, she'll feel ticklish all over, and not in a good way.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": She pronounces microwave as "Mick-row-wave" as opposed to the common "Mike-row-wave".
  • Nice Girl: Jen is a generally polite, affable girl who genuinely loves baby-sitting, despite not being very good at it, and gives Linda a speech on how she should do what she loves over worrying about being good at it.
  • Shrinking Violet: Tina minus confidence.

    Sergeant Bosco 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sergeant_bosco.png
Voiced by: Gary Cole

A police sergeant who has interacted with the Belchers on occasion.


  • Berserk Button: Since she's the Belcher he interacts with the most, Linda ends up annoying him greatly.
  • The Comically Serious: Had basically zero sense of humor, which leads to him treating even the goofiest cases as dead serious.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He loves his sarcasm.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Claims to be part of a secret society that hunts people for sport in "My Fuzzy Valentine".
  • Jerkass: Bosco is an unpleasant guy. He's not even above shin-kicking a 9 year old girl.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's not that bad of a guy. He and Bob have a genuinely fun time together in "Legends of the Mall".
  • Police are Useless: Bosco is...not good at his job. He nearly got Bob killed when he ordered a shot at Mickey in "Bob Day Afternoon", dismissed Bob's emergency texts as drunk texts in "World Wharf II: The Wharfening", was willing to risk his detective career on Linda's nonexistent psychic abilities in "I Get A Psy-chic Out Of You", and did an "undercover" operation in "Boywatch" while his police badge was visible and the back of his shirt clearly said "POLICE".
  • Semper Fi: He was in the Navy.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Shin-kicks a nine-year-old girl and threatened her older sister.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He shin-kicked Louise and threatened to punch Tina in the face.

     Speedo Guy 
Voiced by: H. Jon Benjamin

A local man who, as the name indicates, is usually seen parading around in a speedo.


  • Camp Straight: He wears pink speedos and likes rollerskating but "Bob Actually" showed he's straight (or at least attracted to a woman).
  • Fan Disservice: Not the most fit guy around, which makes his outfit choice an affront to the eyes.
  • No Name Given: His real name hasn't been revealed as of yet.
  • Recurring Extra: Across many episodes, he will normally be shown in the background for a few seconds with little to no influence to the plot.

    Helen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/helenbb.png
Voiced by: Kaitlin Olson

A rich widow for whom Ted falls in love when he is asked to do some work in her house.


  • Black Widow: She may or may not have assassinated her husband. It's never made exactly clear, but it is clear she had reasons to want him dead, and she had the means to kill him, as well as wanting to hide something that was possible evidence against her. While it was never wholly confirmed, it was mostly hinted towards she really being the killer.
  • Derailing Love Interests: She becomes much more of a mean jerkass in her second appearance, when another candidate for Teddy's Love Interest, Kathleen, shows up.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: She becomes much more mean in her second appearance, losing every single shred of sympathy she had before, as well as no longer being interested in Teddy, or even his bodily safety, when money is on the line.

Others

    Boyz 4 Now 
A boy band made of 4 boys that Tina is crazy for. Louise secretly has a crush on the young boy of the band, Boo Boo.
  • Noodle Incident: When they separate, Boo Boo's only comment about his relationship with the others is that Allen and Griffin "know what they did".
