— Louise Belcher

Louise Belcher is the youngest member of the Belcher family. Her off-balance sense of humor and hunger for conflict makes her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen, and often gets her family both into and/or out of tricky situations. Like her siblings, Gene and Tina, Louise goes to Wagstaff School, where she is a 4th grader.

Profile

Appearance

Louise has black hair and tan skin like the rest of the family members. She wears her hair in pigtails with chartreuse yellow hair ties. She is almost never seen without wearing her trademark pink rabbit ear hat. She wears a green frock and black sock-less Mary Jane shoes. She is 4'8" tall and weighs 85 lbs.

In Ear-Sy Rider, she wears a blue hooded jacket with the hood up after her hat was stolen. She wears the jacket again with the hood down in Ambergris to conceal the ambergris.

In Christmas in the Car and The Hauntening, she wears a light blue jacket, which looks similar to the jacket worn in My Fuzzy Valentine and Lobsterfest, except with a hood.

Her nightwear sometimes consists of a light green shirt and 3/4 length shorts, and more often a light blue classic pajama set. She sometimes wears pink or yellow rabbit slippers.

Personality

Louise is a bright mischievous yet manipulative child, especially considering her place as the youngest in the family. Frequently seen giving her older siblings (and sometimes adults) advice and making quick-witted remarks, she displays many signs associated with high intelligence, including her tendencies towards being aloof and manipulative, but also encompasses her cunning, logic, and problem solving skills.

Despite Louise's mischievous nature she is not malicious. Though she loves a good prank, she never aims to hurt anybody. Despite this, she has been known to go overboard in episodes like "Topsy" and "Glued, Where's My Bob?"

Louise is shown to highly value her personal space and things and reacts with extreme prejudice when they are threatened. She even proclaimed that in the event of her death nobody was to touch her stuff and that she would leave it all to her ghost (It Snakes a Village).

Louise can pick-locks, steals from and tricks her siblings but is always ready to help them when they need it, because despite her unwillingness to admit it, she tends to have a soft spot for the people she cares about. Her recklessness is met with a heart of gold as she tends to help those in need, such as pulling down the pants of a bully who picked on Pocket Sized Rudy in Thelma & Louise Except Thelma is Linda. Louise doesn’t show affection often, but when she does it’s usually by coming up with plans to help people when they’re in a crunch.

Louise becomes extremely attached to inanimate objects, especially her her Kuchi Kopi night-light and in Bed & Breakfast, Crawl Space, and Flu-ouise. In It Snakes a Village, Louise creates a "will" and leaves all her stuff to her ghost and orders that no one touch her stuff. This is contrasted against her infrequency to express affection to her loved ones.

Louise is a fan of Japanese culture. She has many items of Kuchi Kopi merchandise including her favorite nightlight, toys that are based on Japanese folklore (Yōkai) creatures and is a fan of the Hawk and Chick film franchise. She might also be interested in the Goth subculture, due to having spooky plush toys, animal skulls and watching Tim Burton films. Also, in "The Frond Files", Louise is seen wearing goth clothing and multiple earrings on her bunny ears.

She can be something of a tomboy, often viewing typical "girly" things, like crushes, stickers, and dolls with disdain (Boyz 4 Now)(Slumber Party).

Relationships

Relatives

Bob Belcher

Louise and her father have many things in common, and she seems to have acquired Bob's quirk of making inanimate object talk in "Spaghetti Western & Meatballs", "Weekend at Mort's" and "The Kids Rob a Train". Bob and Louise's close relationship that can be seen In Hawk & Chick, when she becomes distraught over the possibility of losing touch with her father as she ages. Louise becomes jealous when Bob pays attention to others, including his plants and to Logan Late Afternoon in the Garden of Bob & Louise, and Gene in Spaghetti Western and Meatballs. The two also share a fear of the dentist, watch TV at night together, which they call the "Burn Unit" (Spaghetti Western and Meatballs).

Bob and Louise's relationship is strengthened when Bob is field trip chaperone for Louise's class in Carpe Museum. In this episode, Louise even lets slip that she plans to take over Bob's Burgers when her father retires, and we learn that she called Bob "daddy" until she was 8.

Bob is also shown to understand and respect Louise's boundaries more than Linda. When Linda gives away Louise's room when she turns their apartment into a bed & breakfast, Bob warns that this is a terrible idea (Bed & Breakfast).

Louise looks up to her father. H. Jon Benjamin, voice of Bob, claims that he believes Louise is Bob's favorite child.

Linda Belcher

Linda and Louise's relationship is not always easy, as Louise has been a known daddy's girl since she was a baby, as seen Mother Daughter Laser Razor. The two undoubtedly butt heads as Linda tries to parent willful Louise well.

While she Louise loves her mother, their relationship can be strained. While Bob recognizes that Louise needs to have her space and be herself, Linda is often overstepping and unintentionally pushing Louise away.

However, the are undeniably very alike, sharing a love of mischief and a tendency to take things too far but a strong sense of justice, as illustrated in Thelma & Louise Except Thelma is Linda. In "Eat, Spray, Linda," it is shown that Louise and Linda go to a pet store to pet the puppies seeing as Louise knows an employee, Robert, there and a puppy that she always pets, Colonel Fluffles.

Gene Belcher

Gene is Louise's older brother, but as addressed in the episode Large Brother, Where Fart Thou?, he doesn't do traditional big brother stuff. That being said, they are closer than most siblings, and choose to spend most of their free time in and out of school together with their oldest sister Tina. They even sit together at lunch, where the two play "food court" in Spaghetti Western and Meatballs.

Louise's brother often goes along with, or is even used in, her schemes and plans, like when he plays Thomas Edison in her science fair play in Topsy. He does on rare occasion protest, in episodes like It Snakes a Village and Stand by Gene.
