The Archer/Bob's Burgers crossover episode you imagined in a peyote dream is actually coming true, according to H. Jon Benjamin.
Benjamin, who voices the title characters for both, completely unrelated shows, spilled the crazy beans to EW about the event, taking place sometime during Archer's fourth season.
It's like a Bourne Identity-type plotline. It starts off with Archer as Bob, making hamburgers, but he doesn't know that he's Archer. He's at the restaurant and these, like, I think Russian thugs come in, and Bob dispatches them expertly. And then he's like, What just happened? How did I do that? So he has to try to figure out why he's so good at killing people.
How did this happen? Apparently Archer creator Adam Reed is a big fan of Bob's Burger's and pitched the whole concept. Animation will remain in the Archer style, but expect a cameo or two from Bob's cast members.
Now all we need is a Lucille Bluth/Mallory Archer episode. It's the perfect opportunity!
Yesterday, the cast of FX series Archer assembled at the San Diego Comic Con for a panel discussion and a preview of season 4.
The cast also played an exclusive video for fans, starring Archer with a hang-glider, getting drowned out by strong winds whenever he tries to give away a spoiler.
In store for season 4: an underwater episode, a new marriage for Mallory (that isn't Burt Reynolds), and an unconfirmed guest appearance from Kenny "Danger Zone" Loggins.
San Diego Comic Con's full schedule for Thursday, July 12 was released today, and it sure is extensive. Some highlight panels include Archer, Dexter, Battlestar Galactica, Robert Kirkman, and Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky.
There's a lot to see, so it's great that most of these panels are filmed and thrown online in a matter of minutes. It's almost like being there, but with horrible audio.
