"O.T.: The Outside Toilet" is the 15th episode of the third season of the animated comedy series Bob's Burgers and the overall 37th episode, and is written by Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux and directed by Anthony Chun. It aired on Fox in the United States on March 3, 2013.


Gene is flush with excitement when he discovers and befriends an expensive talking toilet, and when Louise and Tina become privy to his secret he recruits them to help hide his new buddy from a villainous toilet hunter.[1]


Rowan Kaiser of The A.V. Club gave the episode a A–, saying "Everything worked about “O.T. the Outside Toilet.” I'm not sure I want Bob's Burgers to always remind me so much of The Simpsons, but I could be persuaded if it was always this good."[2] Ross Bonaime of Paste Magazine gave the episode an 8.4, saying "The two stories combine in a perfect way, with the drunk Belcher parents helping Gene with his toilet friend, but they’re too drunk to quite comprehend what’s going on, and Gene eventually has to say goodbye to his best toilet/friend. It’s all insane, but kind of sweet too, especially when Bob has an awkward heart-to-heart with Gene, and the entire family rises up to help Gene in his time of need. Once again, Bob’s Burgers gets some of the best voice acting on TV as well, as Hamm is great as the toilet, constantly misunderstanding Gene’s commands, like when Gene tells him “I love you,” and Hamm responds, “you have to throw up?” It’s the perfect balance of weirdness and heart that Bob’s Burgers excels at."[3]

The episode received a 1.7 rating and was watched by a total of 3.67 million people. This made it the fourth most watched show on Animation Domination that night, beating The Cleveland Show but losing to The Simpsons.[4]
