If anything, that should help you feel a little bit better about your circumstances. Nevertheless, you can learn a thing or two from the Belchers.

Considering how 2020 has been already, this is the year to take it easy and have things go as smoothly as possible. If you’re looking for some tips on how to make Thanksgiving better though, look no further than Bob’s Burgers. Every year on Thanksgiving, the Belchers seem to have a mishap or two derail their original plan. Most years though, things seem to work out alright in the end.

If you need a little bit more help though, then listen closely because these five Bob’s Burgers Thanksgiving episodes each feature a tip you can use. Whether it be an incredibly helpful tip or just something small to remind you, the Belchers can give you a lot.

Let’s get into some Thanksgiving tips you can pick up from watching some episodes of Bob’s Burgers.

The first tip comes from Season 3’s “An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal.”

No surprise that the first Thanksgiving tip would come from Season 3’s “An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal.” This served as the show’s first Thanksgiving episode and what a way to kick things off.

The episode follows the family’s landlord, Mr. Fischoeder using the Belcher family as his pretend family to get a woman to fall in love with him and Bob serving as the cook for the family. It’s all going great until Bob gets drunk, Mr. Fischoeder kisses Linda and everything quickly derails.

The major Thanksgiving tip from Season 3 is don’t mix business and pleasure. As much as Bob wanted to get those few months of free rent, it wasn’t worth him watching Linda be kissed by someone else. It’s a good idea in theory but those things never seem to work.

Rather, it’s nice to either have your own Thanksgiving or spend your Thanksgiving with your family. That might look different this year, but the main takeaway is don’t go around, kissing someone else’s wife.
