Story

When a sinkhole appears before Bob’s restaurant and threatens the Belcher family business (and their summer), the Belchers try to find a way to keep the restaurant afloat.

Snyposis

A ruptured water main creates an enormous sinkhole right in front of Bob's Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers’ plans for a successful summer. While Bob and Linda struggle to keep the business afloat, the kids try to solve a mystery that could save their family's restaurant. As the dangers mount, these underdogs help each other find hope and fight to get back behind the counter, where they belong.

He says that it will be "more likely, the movie they wanted to see", instead of having to rush it.[15] He also mentioned that the COVID-19 pandemic has given the crew more time to improve the film. Bouchard promises the animation quality will have a significant improvement over the show.[16]
