Bob's Burgers Pays Tribute to Paul Reubens During Latest Broadcast

Bob's Burgers re-airs Season 13 finale, "Amelia" in tribute to guest star Paul Reubens after Reubens' passing.

Bob's Burgers has paid tribute to the passing of Paul Reubens in a special way by re-airing the episode he guest starred in with a special message added in the time since! It was shockingly announced earlier this Summer that Paul Reubens, the comedic star behind Pee-Wee Herman and much more, had passed away at the age of 70. It's led to many tributes from fans and those who had since been inspired by Reubens' work. And this includes the team behind Bob's Burgers, who just recently feature Reubens in a guest role at the end of the latest season. 

Reubens was recruited as the voice of a new character introduced in Bob's Burgers Season 13 finale episode, "Amelia." Named Pat, Reubens voiced a masseuse in training who Bob and the kids were trying to sneak in as a gift for Linda on Mother's Day. It was then fans saw how Pat was absorbed in the challenge that Linda's back had provided for him, and clearly left an impact on the Bob's Burgers team as well. This lead to a special tribute at the end of Bob's Burgers' latest broadcast as spotted by @JermilloGamingHD on Twitter:
