Bob's Burgers Wiki

- Zeke

Zeke is an eighth-grade student at Wagstaff School. He is known for wrestling and rough-housing anyone whenever he feels like it, though he especially loves wrestling Jimmy Pesto, Jr., his best friend. They are part of Tina Belcher's friend group, though he used to unintentionally make Tina envious for distracting Jimmy Jr. from her. He makes his first appearance in "The Belchies."

He is voiced by Bobby Tisdale.



Zeke has messy brown wavy hair and wears a black tank top, dark green shorts, black shoes and white trainer socks which have so far only been visible in "Midday Run" when he removes his shoes to fool Tina and "Can't Buy Me Math" when he wears bowling shoes at Spare Change Lanes.


Being protective towards his fellow classmates seems to be a big part of Zeke’s personality. He has been portrayed as a bodyguard for the kids and runs an after school women’s group focused on self-defense ("The Quirkducers"). He even falsely confesses to Mr. Frond so his best friend can go on a canceled field trip ("The Silence of the Louise"). In addition, when he is revealed to be the pooper, he admits that some of his poops were done to help Tina ("Broadcast Wagstaff School News"). Zeke has a knack for cooking which he discovers, thanks to Bob, in "Bob and Deliver" as he becomes head chef of the Home-Ec-staurant. In "Tweentrepreneurs," he suggests roasted nuts with a homemade spice blend known as "Zeke’s Hot Nut Sack" to be their product.


Main article: Zeke/Story

Zeke comes from a challenging home that "moves around a lot," which he reveals in "Broadcast Wagstaff School News." However, when Zeke was younger, he was an even rowdier child who could not make friends because of his unruly nature and his family moving around a lot and having him transfer to several elementary schools before Wagstaff. Due to his energy and lack of social skills, he would frequently wrestle other kids involuntarily, which one day resulted in a kid in a headlock peeing his pants, which got some other boys to laugh and ask Zeke to do it again. Zeke thus joined the group of bullies in harassing kids, which the hyperactive child did because it made his group laugh and like him. One day, he went as far as to headlock and mock the lisp of a boy named Will. This incident, however, would later haunt Zeke as he felt guilty over what he had done ("Bully-ieve It or Not").



His dad[]

Zeke's parents are seen together with him at the end of "The Belchies," where he hugs them but quickly pushes them away calling them "wusses" while wiping a tear from his eye, but in "Presto Tina-o," he mentions that they divorced when he was a baby.

His mom[]

Zeke says his mother was pregnant with him during her prom in "O.T.: The Outside Toilet." She likely doesn't have a lot of or any custody over Zeke since Zeke usually mentions his father the most and his dad gets to control which school he goes to ("Yes Without My Zeke").

His brother[]

In "Presto Tina-o," Zeke mentions having a 44-year-old brother. He is likely Zeke's half-brother who shares a father since his mother would've been too young to have Zeke's brother (since she had Zeke during Prom).

His grandma[]


Zeke's Grandmother

In "Midday Run," Zeke's grandmother appears. She bears a strong resemblance to him and is also voiced by Bobby Tisdale.

Zeke and his grandmother appear to have a strong relationship, as he visits her several times. In "Midday Run," Zeke stole the school mascot costume in order to cheer up his grandmother who was about to have surgery. He also visits her during Thanksgiving in the episode "Stuck in the Kitchen with You," helping the Belcher kids put up a makeshift parade to entertain the seniors.

His grandpa[]

In "Presto Tina-o," Zeke mentions he had a grandfather who died from a stroke.


In "Boyz 4 Now," Zeke appears with his cousin, Leslie.

His aunt[]

Zeke first mentions his aunt in "The Silence of the Louise." The only thing known about her is that she smells like coconuts.


Zeke has since alluded to his father having a girlfriend, but later mentions a stepmother named Cheryl as well; it's not clear whether it's the same person or not but since Zeke mentioned the former first; it is likely they married off-screen. Zeke mentions his father's girlfriend having a newborn baby, but it is not clear whether it is his father's as he doesn't refer to the baby by a relationship to himself. Cheryl is heard whooping in response to Zeke adding a shoutout to her in the Mother's Day and Primary Caregivers Appreciation cabaret in "Mom, Lies, and Videotape," but isn't seen. In "Vampire Disco Death Dance," Zeke mentions that Cheryl lets him say a few curse words.

Love interests[]

Tina Belcher[]

Tina has a strong dislike towards Zeke, probably because Jimmy Jr. never pays attention to Tina when he is around. After Tina invited Jimmy Jr. to a treasure hunt at the abandoned taffy factory, he decided to invite Zeke, Andy & Ollie as well. He seems to have an enjoyment for breaking empty bottles.

Zeke possible has a crush on Tina, but the latter does not reciprocate. In "Midday Run," he is quoted saying, "Damn Tina, now I got a story to tell on our wedding day. You think that's not gonna happen, but I'll getcha girl! I'm gonna getcha!" Also, in "The Oeder Games," when Tina is about to throw a water balloon at Zeke, he says, "Hold up girl, hold up! Uh you uh, know I like you, right?" to try to distract her. In "Broadcast Wagstaff School News," it is revealed that he is the "Mad Pooper" of the school. He explained that he did this in a way to help Tina create her news stories, but this also may reveal a path to a possible crush on Tina. Once the truth was revealed, Zeke avoided getting in trouble because his family "moves around a lot."

In "UFO No You Didn't," in a panic, Tina kisses Zeke while thinking that the world will be destroyed by aliens, and he later remarks how he can't wait for the next alien invasion. The two also kiss in a game of spin the bottle during the credit scene of the season 6 episode, "The Hormone-iums."

Tammy Larsen[]

Tammy has a crush on Zeke and blackmails Tina in the episode, "Bad Tina," just so she could hang out with him and Jimmy Jr. Zeke is completely unaware of this, but otherwise seems uninterested.


Jimmy Pesto, Jr.[]

Zeke and Jimmy are best friends. As a result Zeke is rarely seen without him. He loves wrestling with him, as they are seen wrestling each other in multiple episodes, though Zeke is known for almost always having the upper hand
