Max and Ruby, the parentless bunnies

My son is a Max and Ruby fanatic. He screams. He yells. He dances around with glee. My son, not Max. We’ve been watching the show on Noggin for months now. One day my son didn’t care for the show and then BAM! -it was his favorite show ever. If you haven’t seen it, it’s about two rabbits. One is the older bossy sister, Ruby, and the other is the 3-year-old mischievous brother, Max.

My mom, who spends a lot of time with my boys, asked me a pretty good Max and Ruby trivia question. “Where are their parents?” I thought about it for a moment and she was right, Max and Ruby’s parents are never in the show. They have a Grandma that makes many appearances, but no parents. And hardly even a mention of parents.

According to Wells, “As in most other classic stories, we don’t see Max and Ruby’s parents, because I believe that kids resolve their issues and conflicts differently when they are on their own.

I have often wondered the same thing myself! Also, I'm wondering how any responsible big bunny sister could possible send three-year-old Max to the grocery store on his own--or why the heck a seven-year-old (is that how old Ruby is?) and a three-year-old can take public transportation into town unsupervised to go shopping? Their parents should be put in the pen!!! Or maybe that's where they are so they can't supervise...? Outrageous!!!!
