Trivia[]

  • He is the only Belcher whose voice actor was born in Russia.[1]
  • He is shown to be incredibly impulsive, often doing and saying things with little to no thought as the consequences or what they imply. Another way of saying this is how he blurts out anything that comes to his mind.
  • In "My Fuzzy Valentine," Louise refers to him as "Eugene," proving that this is his real name for which he is short, meaning that he shares his first name with his voice actor, Eugene Mirman.
    • His name means "well-born."
  • He doesn't know his own middle name because his mom refuses to tell him. ("Midday Run")
  • He swears the least out of all the characters (although he frequently uses terminology that are double entendre's and is often scolded by his dad for it).
  • Linda writes their family's phone number on his leg every morning in case he gets lost. ("Late Afternoon in the Garden of Bob and Louise")
  • Despite his love of music, he has no training and he has never shown an interest in partaking in formal lessons. ("Itty Bitty Ditty Committee")
  • He is in between being a teen and a child, and unlike Tina (his eldest sister), has shown a preference for remaining young. He prefers to stay close to home and his parents, especially his mom.
  • He is closest to his mom due to their love of music and shared eccentricities.
  • He is in sixth grade at Wagstaff School.
  • He is the only Belcher with visible ears.
  • He has a widow's peak. ("Hawk & Chick")
  • In the episode "Moody Foodie," it is revealed he is uncircumcised. This is mentioned again in "Mazel-Tina" after Bob agrees to cater Tammy's Bat Mitzvah when he expresses a desire to get a circumcision.
  • Big Bob wanted Bob to change his name. ("Father of the Bob")
  • In the episode "My Big Fat Greek Bob," he reveals that he has had a secret cat living under his bed for 8 months.
  • In "Bad Tina," he reveals that he has and uses a litter box under his bed.
  • He was born late, after his due date and Linda implies his birth was difficult in "Ear-sy Rider."
    • Also in "Ear-sy Rider," it is stated that he had a pet fish to prove he was responsible enough to get a dog (but he was not, and it is implied the fish died).
  • Has a 28-year-old albino friend named Ken, who does improvised hip-hop. It is unknown if Ken is imaginary or not.
  • Like Bob, he has an allergy to lobsters, as seen in "Lobsterfest." He's allergic to shellfish in general. ("The Handyman Can")
  • His keyboard is a Casio SK-5, both Loren Bouchard and Eugene Mirman had one when they were kids.[2]
  • He likes sand. ("Carpe Museum")
  • He calls his testicles "Two Small Coincidences." ("I Get Psy-chic Out of You")
  • He is a Sagittarius ("O.T.: The Outside Toilet"), which means his birthday is between November 23rd and December 21st.
  • In "Stand by Gene," Louise claims that had a concussion right after she and Tina decided to let him decide what they should do for fun, and that's why he forgot about it. However, she might've been lying.
  • Sometimes he dresses as the opposite gender and enjoys doing so. He also refers to himself as feminine quite often, and will respond when someone treats him like a girl. His family is mostly supportive of his gender fluidity; Louise has referred to him as her "sister" on multiple occasions, but Bob once chastised him for insisting he had a vagina. It is unknown if this behavior is indicative of a specific gender-fluidity orientation, or a result of him simply being eccentric, impulsive individual.
    • The crew and cast have been asked about this, but essentially declined to comment because of their belief that, at his age, it wouldn't matter (and he likely wouldn't have really thought about gender/sexuality at all yet).
    • This could mirror the fact that one of his two Tobin counterparts from The Great North, Ham (the other being Wolf) is openly gay, and that Ham's family is also supportive of his sexuality.
  • In "Crawl Space," he had a history report and when he was called to the board, he was scolded, then sent to detention for playing his grandparents' sex sounds in front of the entire class.
  • His favorite candy is Chunky Blast Offs, manufactured by Spratt's Sweets. ("Like Gene for Chocolate")
