The official synopsis for The Bob's Burgers Movie, which will follow a similar format to the small-screen series, was released over the weekend.

"In other words, it has to be the best movie ever made. But no pressure, right?"

Bob's Burgers airs on Fox every Sunday night in the US. It airs on Comedy Central in the UK and is available to stream on Disney+.
