Season 3 episode 2 "Full Bars" Teddy's guinea pig dies from being squished. While everything surrounding it is done a bit for laughs and you find out the guinea pig was VERY old and the squishing is only partially cause of death, Teddy's distress is a bit upsetting and you do see the slightly flat guinea pig a few times, no blood or anything like that... just not quite properly guinea pig shaped

A cow named Moolissa dies of a heart attack presumably and then is eaten as a way to honour her.

In a phone conversation with her friend Ginger, Linda is laughing saying that Ginger's cat died in a really funny way, but it is never described how, and a cat is never shown dying.

It’s hinted at that Linda is an alcoholic, but it’s fairly comedic. Some characters go out to drink as usually end up drunk. Most of the stuff in this show is comedic.

Several episodes involve Bob abusing over-the-counter medications, this is played for comedy.

Although there isn't cannibalism, S1 Ep1 is about a rumor that Louise started about the restaurant serving human meat burgers. It informs the whole main storyline.

I would say no, but Linda gets soap in her eye in an episode, Bob gets soap in his eye in another episode but it's very brief. In one episode Gayle has pinkeye and needs help with eyedrops but she's afraid to take them.

In S3E10, Linda teaches Tina how to shave her legs. In S3E20, Bob ends up with both of his arms shaved after he goes to the ER to get stitches. In S7E4, Ron shaves Bob's chest to attach a mic to him as part of a sting operation.

Rudy is a frequently recurring character who is the Belcher kids' friend. He is asthmatic and it comes up a lot, and is frequently shown using his inhaler. In Carpe Museum, he has an asthma attack when they do a lot of climbing and he can't get to his inhaler.

Rudy breaks his arm and takes away the attention from Louise and her movie viewing for Hawk &Chick but it is only shown in a cast.

Not super badly but there are jokes that poke fun at the emerging sexuality of tweens but more played for comedy than for titillation. The episode Bad Tina I especially recommend skipping of it dies bother you as the main plot concerns Tina writing erotic fiction about her friends (all characters involved are middle school age)

Bob's mother died when he was a child. It's only mentioned briefly and never shown or further talked about. Definitely a very minor point in the show.

Linda gets a new job and tells Bob that she's "so freaking excited" about her first day on the job, to which he replies that he knows, she's been singing it all morning and it pans to her singing "I'm so freaking excited about my first day on the job" while washing her hair in the shower. It's shown from the shoulders up.

The police in the show are generally incompetent, and the only reoccurring cop character is treated the same as any other minor character.

Linda sometimes shows an unhealthy relationship with food there is an episode “The Unbearable Like-Likeness of Gene Season 3, Episode 8” where she starts a diet to lose weight only eating the peels of fruits and vegetables

First episode in the first season, Tina is called the "worst kind of autistic." Honestly, you can skip a lot of season 1.

In one S3 episode Linda sees Gretchen after she had been on a diet of vegetable and fruit skins, and Linda thinks she needs to go on the diet too. It's not the main plot of the episode but if diet/weight stuff is triggering to you, you might want to give S3E8 a skip.

Linda sings a valentines song where she says she'd kill herself if she was alone. "Two people together forever, security in life, someone to love you. Instead of being all alone, such a lonely existence I'd kill myself" she immediately apologies for her song. In another episode bob says that if the restaurant fails he'll kill himself.

gene is frequently shown in dresses and 'feminine' clothing, if i remember correctly, it was more of a joke i earlier seasons, none of the characters mention it now. theres also an episode in the first season where bob becomes a cab driver, he picks up a few transgender hookers, its not blatantly transphobic but id recommend skipping most of the first season anyway lol

Bob meets a handful of ladies of the night when he drives a taxi for extra money. They are either transgender or cross dressers but it's not specified. Overall the interactions are fairly positive, especially with Bob. You can tell he's not really sure about how he's supposed to interact with them but tries to be respectful and tells them they're beautiful and stuff like that. There's also some stuff around Gene that has lead some fans to question gender fluidity, though mostly referred to with masculine pronouns. Some folks may find some of the remarks upsetting but it doesn't seem to be done in a negative/derogatory way

No but the word "transves****" is used several times when referring to a few of the trans characters

A couple of the jokes are puns that get vaguely close to slurs (knitta and honkies are the two I recall) but nothing hateful.

In a S1 episode someone says to Gene "you won't get mol***ed, you're fat!" This joke is obviously in very poor taste. This behaviour stops pretty much completely by the end of S1

S1 E2 we hear & briefly see Linda's parents having sex even the bits that are shown are never graphic, sex, and sexual content is a theme throughout the show, sometimes spoken about between Bob & Linda but most often we see it from Tina and her obsession with butt's and fantasizing about sexual/romantic scenarios between her and her male friends (most often love interest Jimmy Jr.)

S11E7 The kids are telling stories that are obvious parodies of movies where they insert themselves as the characters. In the Air Force One parody, Gene asks that his character's wife be played by his mom. This isn't meant to be treated as an incestuous joke but about Gene being a huge Mama's Boy. Bob finds it unsettling but the rest of the family tell him to loosen up.

The show is ongoing and episodic (for the most part) so every episode has a solution to the problem and ends on a generally good note

Bob makes a sly comment to Tina about how they both know Santa's not real but Louise and Gene are still clueless but Tina doesn't pick up on it, hinting that she doesn't know he's not real which surprises Bob.

It’s very comedic and there’s no real damage done, but Bob lets Tina drive in an empty (except for one other car) parking lot and she very slowly bumps the one other car there.

In the episode "An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal", a woman chases Bob around with a rifle. She fires a shot at him through a door, and you hear a thud. Bob is not harmed; the bullet hit the turkey he was holding. In "The Last Gingerbread House on the Left", there is a gingerbread house competition at Mr. Fischoeder's which ends when everyone but Bob suddenly pulls out the guns they were hiding. They all open fire and shoot at each other's gingerbread houses. No person is harmed.
