Trivia[]

  • His first appearance was in "Sheesh! Cab, Bob?," although this is going by broadcast order. In production order, he was given a proper introduction, along with his kids and Mr. Fischoeder in "Burger War."
  • It's implied he's divorced from his sons' mother.
    • In "The Belchies, he says he thought his twins were with their mother.
    • In "Bad Tina," Andy takes out tampons from a backpack he thought was his and assumes that his mom packed tampons for his lunch. However, this could just mean that their mom is in charge of packing their lunches.
      • In "Ex MachTina," Jimmy, Jr. sings, "My mom's new friend Allen, he's okay," which again implies that Jimmy Pesto is divorced and his wife has moved on and is dating a man named Allen.
  • It’s implied in "Bye Bye Boo Boo" that he's not really Italian and was inspired to become Italian after seeing Joe Piscopo in the movie Johnny Dangerously.
  • It’s revealed in the episode "Burger War" that Jimmy's real last name is Poplopovich.
    • The name Poplopovich is a nod to Gregg Popovich, the coach of the San Antonio Spurs.
      • Popovich is of Croatian descent, so it's possible Jimmy is also Croatian.
    • His last name 'Poplopovich' implies Russian heritage in Jimmy.
    • It’s also likely that he legally changed his name before his kids were born. This would explain why Pesto has only ever been used as the family's last name. However, Pesto's Kid Robot mini figure comes with a lifetime membership card for Desire Dungeon that lists his real name, along with his "Baby Num-Nums" nickname and Diaper Lover at the bottom. No such card has appeared in any episode of the show.
  • He appears in the reflection of the extermination van window in the opening for Season 3 onwards.
  • In some episodes, his name is just credited as "Jimmy" on the end credits.
  • Linda and Hugo think Jimmy is handsome.
  • He constantly claims that he hates Bob and is totally superior to him, but indirectly claims that he is envious of his tasty burgers and masculine mustache.
  • He has a diaper fetish. ("Sheesh! Cab, Bob?")
  • He has a "mostly-restored" 280Z. ("Bully-ieve It or Not")
  • He doesn't make any appearances in Season 12 and Season 13 following allegations surrounding his voice actor Jay Johnston and his subsequent arrest for his alleged role in the January 6 United States Capitol attack. The last episode where Johnston voices him is "Bridge Over Troubled Rudy." He appears in The Bob's Burgers Movie in a few scenes but has no lines of dialogue. The character returned in the Season 14 episode "Bully-ieve It or Not," now voiced by Eric Bauza.
  • He, Bob, and Teddy have worn the same underwear pair. Trev gave Teddy Jimmy's underwear, and Teddy let Bob wear it. Teddy wears it the day after. ("The Fresh Princ-ipal")
