Brooklyn Nine-Nine

With Easter right around the corner, there's no better time than now to re-watch some of the funniest Easter themed shows that have aired on television.

From NBC sitcoms to comedic cartoons, Easter has always been a perfect time for our favorite characters to come together and wreck havoc.

Superstore: "Easter"

Season 4, Episode 16 of Superstore (2015-2021) shows the employees of Cloud 9 focusing on different tasks. With Easter around the corner, Glenn (Mark McKinney) prepares for his church's Passion play. Meanwhile, Dina (Lauren Ash) is investigating an unapproved Easter Bunny looming around the market.

All the while, Amy (America Ferrera) believes her co-workers are making fun of her and enlists Dina and Jonah (Ben Feldman) to help spy on the break room though fake smoke detectors.

Bob's Burgers: "Eggs for Days"

Linda Belcher and Bob Belcher


Bob's Burgers' (2011-) "Eggs for Days" follows parents Linda (John Roberts) and Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) who may have taken the annual Easter egg hunt a little too seriously. The pair were so good, they can't even find their own eggs and must hurry to find a rotting one before it's too late.

Parks and Recreation: "Canvassing"

With only being the second episode ever of the beloved NBC sitcom, Parks and Recreation's (2009-2015) "Canvassing" opens with Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Tom (Aziz Ansari) at the annual Pawnee easter egg hunt. Leslie is shocked when nobody can find the eggs, praising Tom to be the ultimate hider, when in fact he forgot to hide the eggs in the first place.

The rest of the episode follows Leslie as she learns that the Pawnee town citizens are not too supportive of her new park idea.

Black-ish: "North Star"

Season 4, Episode 17 of Black-ish(2014-) features Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) in a passive aggressive cook-off, while their twins (Miles Brown and Marsai Martin) pretend to not want to participate in the Easter Egg Hunt. Both sides of the family come and it is quite the day.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: "Valloweaster"

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2013-) is iconically known for their annual Halloween heists. Last season was a little different, however. With conflicting schedules, the heist endures over a period of time, starting on Halloween and ending on Easter. Nevertheless, a new winner of the heist is crowned and their scheming is unsurprisingly top-notch.

Happy Easter to all! We wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday surrounded by loved ones, lots of food, and maybe a disastrous egg hunt while you're at it.
