The moment that Spring arrives my husband starts dreaming about barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs. We used to have a barbecue but after careless residents of our condo complex burned down a building by extinguishing a cigarette in a dried out planter, the Fire Marshall declared that no one can have a barbecue on their balcony. Everyone had to get rid of their barbecues. We CAN have one but we have to put it 200′ from the building. Not easy to do when you are on the top floor and the front of your building is on a hill. Sigh…
Thankfully my father and step-mother have a barbecue so at least we can have barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs at least a couple of times a year. If we were fortunate enough to be able to afford a house a barbecue would be my husband’s first purchase.
The official start to summer is only weeks away. Father’s Day is not too far behind Memorial Day weekend either. Therefore it seems only fitting that Bob’s Burger (Season 1) and American Dad (Volume 7) are both being released TODAY (April 17, 2012) on DVD.
Here is a little bit of information about both DVDs.
Bob’s Burgers Season 1
The Belcher family cooks up more chaos when the sizzling animated series comes to DVD April 17th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The #1 animated premiere of the 2010-2011 season, “BOB’S BURGERS” is a flavor sensation filled with quirky characters and unforgettable antics! The Season 1 DVD is filled with even more uncensored moments to satisfy any appetite including:
- Bobs Burger’s Audio Outtakes – Stars H. Jon Benjamin, Kristen Schaal and the rest of the gang go off script and fill you up with hilarious uncensored dialogue!
- Louise and the Burger Menu (Story Extension) – Very funny piece about how Louise names the “burger of the day” with custom animation and voice over (Kristen Schaal)
- Bob’s Burgers Original Demo with Intro by Loren Bouchard – This is the “studio pitch piece” and Loren’s explanation on the process and changes of the characters and casting
- Lifting up the skirt of the Night – Music video inspired by an original song from the series
- Audio Commentaries
“BOB’S BURGERS” follows a third-generation restaurateur, Bob Belcher who runs Bob’s Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. Despite his greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves. Featuring the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin (“Archer”) and Kristen Schaal (“Flight of the Concords”), “Bob’s Burgers” is a hilarious comedy about one unconventional family that will have you coming back for seconds.
Information about the American Dad Volume 7 DVD comes from Klaus, the fish. I’m sure if you are a fan of the series you know exactly who Klaus is (here’s a hint – he’s a fish). The following letter comes from Klaus about the new DVD release.
American Dad Volume 7
Dear Television Critics,
Klaus here to remind you that I am still suffering the aftermath of an American inferiority complex that has left me perpetually entrapped in this hideous amphibious body with this absurd family… But that’s neither here nor there. I’m penning this letter to tell you about something, something important:
“American Dad” Volume 7 is coming to DVD April 17th!
Although I may have my qualms with the alien, this collection of episodes is truly a pleasure. For starters you will get to admire my sharp wit and swoon over my sexy accent as often as you would like. But perhaps most importantly, “American Dad” Volume Seven brings the most beautiful woman of Langley Falls into your living room, Francine. Oh, Francine.
Anyways, you must take a look at the “American Dad” Volume Seven DVD, because like me, the best things lie under the surface. Of course Volume 7 includes fantastic episodes, loads of extra features and bonus content.
Well my equally cynical friends, I think I have said enough.
auf Wiedersehen for now
Both of these DVDs are great for fans and Dad’s alike.
