Bob’s Burgers’ Musical Tribute to Bourbon is a New Christmas Classic

“The last presents delivered/ And the snow outside’s getting thicker/ So let’s open that bottle of liquor…” So begins this rousing holiday tune from Bob’s Burgers, which sees Bob’s very wealthy, very eccentric landlord, Mr. Fischoeder (Kevin Kline), pay tribute to that most precious of Christmas spirits: bourbon.

After a few lines of set-up, Fischoeder gets to the point, unleashing a chorus—“Oh, bourbon!”—so profound and resonant it’ll have you reaching for a bottle to embrace. His brother Felix supplies a figure skating routine as accompaniment.
