Flu-ouise is the premiere episode in Season 7, being the one-hundred-and-eighth episode overall. Actress and comedienne Amy Schumer guest stars.

Louise gets the flu and is sliding into a fever state, but after the family accidentally melt her Kuchi Kopi nightlight in the oven, she becomes furious and right before she falls asleep, she swears that she'll never forgive them. She later goes on a Wizard of Oz style adventure in a dream with the disfigured nightlight and her toys who represent the family's personalities.

This was a little underwhelming and predictable, but it was sweet, and I do like it when animated shows incorporate psychedlic sequences. It's not as if they have to pay extra for the special effects.

I guess "underwhelming and predictable, but sweet" is more or less Bob's Burgers gig now.

I remain disappointed that you can't buy a Kuchi Kopi nightlight.

A comment here suggests that they may be coming.

I would be shocked if they did not make BOTH Kuchi Kopis available for the holidays. Would be such a missed opportunity not to do it!

I'd be all "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY" once that comes out.

I watched the premiere with a couple of guys who've never seen the show, and I insisted they sit through it as I became glaringly aware of how odd and underwhelming this episode was, and kept reassuring them that this episode is not the norm. I hope I didn't ruin the show for them forever. And now I can't think of which one would've been better to introduce them to.

You can pick from season 2-4. The first season was a bit thin, and since then it has become a bit too flanderized. Like most shows, at this point it won't convert anyone new to the show.
