Bob's Burgers is known for many things but no one can deny how good of a father Bob Belcher is. If you look at his animated counterparts, Bob is easily the best Dad of the bunch.

Since the show is currently on its regular summer hiatus, it would only be right to celebrate Father's Day with the Belchers. I don't know about your Dads, but my Dad does enjoy an episode of Bob's Burgers from time to time.

Whether you're spending the day with your father or want to spend it with your favorite fictional Dad, Bob's Burgers is a great option. Plus these episodes prove just how great of a Dad that Bob truly is.

If you're celebrating Father's Day, hopefully it's a great day and even if it's a hard day for you, maybe an episode or two of this comedy will help cheer you up.

Try out these 10 Bob's Burgers episodes for a fun Father's Day

1. Season 1, Episode 6: "Sheesh! Cab, Bob?"

The first episode that came to mind when writing up this list was "Sheesh! Cab, Bob?" While some Bob's Burgers fans don't love the first season, it does have a certain charm about it. The show was still finding its footing and some of those jokes and moments would never be used today.

At its core though, "Sheesh! Cab, Bob?" proves just what Bob will do for his kids. To ensure Tina has a great 13th birthday party, Bob decides to work all day at the restaurant and drive a cab at night. He basically spends time, being dead tired but he's able to pull off a nice party for Tina. In true Bob's Burgers fashion, Bob doesn't get to have his cake and eat it too as he ends up, bringing some unexpected guests to Tina's party and getting into it with Jimmy Pesto.

2. Season 3, Episode 3: "Bob Fires the Kids"

This next episode does have a pretty ominous title which is "Bob Fires the Kids." The episode is all about Bob firing the kids after realizing they're working in a restaurant like he did as a kid. The kids are excited at first but quickly get bored with all the "summer fun" they're having. Bob refuses to hire them back so they get jobs on a blueberry farm. Once Bob realizes his mistake, he wants to hire the kids but now can't afford them. From there, it truly ends up being a spectacle to put it nicely.

3. Season 3, Episode 22: "Carpe Museum"

Season 3 of Bob's Burgers is full of some amazing moments with Bob. However, the other one I chose to highlight is "Carpe Museum." This time, Bob is the chaperone and he's in charge of Louise and Regular-Sized Rudy. While he doesn't want to get into any trouble, they end up wandering off into an exhibit that's off-limits.

While things get a little wheezy for Regular-Sized Rudy, the episode features a lot of great bonding moments between Louise and Bob. Plus there's one scene toward the end that will just melt your heart.

4. Season 4, Episode 5: "Turkey in a Can"

Even though it's Father's Day, I am recommending a Thanksgiving episode. Despite Thanksgiving being months away, this Bob's Burgers Thanksgiving episode is a must-watch no matter what time of year it is. This episode follows Bob who is doing his amazing brine on the family's Thanksgiving turkey but each night, it ends up in the toilet. Bob is determined to find out who is sabotaging his Thanksgiving dinner but once you see the twist, you'll realize why this makes for a great Father's Day episode.

5. Season 4, Episode 17: "The Equestranauts"

Moving onto the next episode, this is one I always forget about but absolutely love. "The Equestranauts" is Bob's Burgers' take on the "Brony" fandom. Since Tina loves the show, she goes to an Equestranauts convention and gets tricked by one of the older fans. To try to get her favorite horse back, Bob has to go undercover as one of the Equesticles and find a way to get her horse back.

Honestly, this episode is so much fun and proves just how far Bob is willing to go to make sure Tina is happy. Even though this is an episode featuring Bob being a great Dad, this episode is just great in general.

6. Season 5, Episode 20: "Hawk & Chick"

This is the final episode we're talking about from Season 5. Maybe it's just me, but season 5 of Bob's Burgers is just so darn good. "Hawk & Chick" follows Bob and Louise as they meet one of their favorite actors when they're out shopping. After finding out that he had a falling out with his daughter, the two are eager to help them patch things up.

This episode does an excellent job of showcasing the bond between Bob and Louise. It also plays into Louise's fears about growing up and drifting away from Bob. Even though the episode does have its funny moments, it's truly a heartfelt episode at its core.

7. Season 7, Episode 18: "The Laser-inth"

Skipping ahead to Season 7, "The Laser-inth" is a great episode focusing on Bob and Gene's relationship. Of all the duos, it feels like we rarely see Bob paired up with Gene. To try to make memories with him, Bob takes Gene to a rock-and-roll laser show that he loved.

Of course, things don't go exactly as planned as Bob has to use a scalper to get tickets and Gene doesn't exactly have the reaction Bob is looking for. Either way, the episode proves just how adept Bob is at rolling with the punches and making it work for his kids.

8. Season 10, Episode 3: "Motor, She Boat"

Season 10 of Bob's Burgers has some great episodes with Bob and the kids. However, the one that immediately came to mind was "Motor, She Boat." Tina and Bob work together to help her build a boat for one of her Thunder Girls events. Of course, Tina doesn't like the way Bob does it and it ends up causing a slight riff between them.

In the end, Tina realizes that she was wrong and decides to go with Bob's boat idea. Honestly, this episode proves just how patient Bob is and if anything, shows kids that sometimes, it's best to just let Dad handle things.

9. Season 11, Episode 22: "Vampire Disco Death Dance"

As a parent, there is something wonderful about sharing something you love with your kids and that's what happens in "Vampire Disco Death Dance." The episode focuses on Bob and Tina who are set to go to a showing of an old favorite movie of his. Things don't go exactly as planned as Tina invites her friends which start to ruin the experience for Bob.

Eventually, Tina realizes it's more fun to spend time with her Dad. Once again, this episode has such a great heartfelt moment in the end, making it perfect for Father's Day.

BOB'S BURGERS: During their special day at the wharf with Big Bob, the kids get into trouble with the Wharf's newest fortune-telling giant clam in the "Wharf, Me Worry?" episode of BOB'S BURGERS airing Sunday, Nov 26 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

10. Season 14, Episode 8: "Wharf, Me Worry?"

In honor of Father's Day, I had to include an episode featuring Bob and his father: Big Bob. "Wharf, Me Worry?" begins with Big Bob, taking the kids out for a day at the Wharf but Bob gets so paranoid after not hearing from them that he goes to find them. In the meantime, the kids end up getting locked in a room and have to use the resources they have to get out.

On the whole, this episode is surprisingly intense and has some great bonding moments between Bob and his father. While it might not be on everyone's list, I had to include a Father's Day episode featuring Bob and his own father.
