According to the following synopses of upcoming new episodes of FOX’s Bob’s Burgers, on Sunday, April 13, the episode entitled “The Equestranauts” will air, which plainly states will be an “homage” to bronies (dubbed as “equesticles”). This conveniently ties into the show as Bob’s daughter, Tina Belcher, is known to be a fan of pony toys and horsie things. Read the synopsis below and the full press release after the break (from Derek Russell’s tumblr).
The Equestranauts – Sunday, April 13 (7:00-7:30 PM ET/PT)
In an homage to the “Bronies” subculture, Tina attends her first Equestra-con, a convention based on her favorite animated pony show, “The Equestranauts.” To her surprise, she finds that the show’s fans are middle-aged men (called “Equesticles.”) When a powerful super-fan tricks Tina out of her rare toy pony it’s up to Bob to go undercover and get it back.
