Where the hell are Max and Ruby's parents?

It's a kid's show, and they have other adults on it... they have a grandma... but these two little kids live in a house by themselves. They never say anything about mom or dad.

Why don't Max and Ruby have parents?

  • Here's what one article says on it:

    "As the author of highly-acclaimed children's books including Noisy Nora, Wells consistently encourages children to think outside-of-the box with amusing and compelling stories, with the goal of the television show being to highlight the ups and downs of sibling relationships.

    So, what does this have to do with Max & Ruby's parents? Well, sometimes kids have to work things out on their own. Rosemary Wells tells Nick Jr. that 'As in most other classic stories, we don't see Max & Ruby's parents. I believe that kids resolve their issues and conflicts differently when they are on their own.'"

  • I have no idea but we are not the only people who want to know! Every parent I know asks the same thing. maybe its to make us crazy while the kids watch the show!

  • My 4 yr old loves Max & Ruby. I think it is cute, but it can get a bit annoying as Ruby tends to be bossy and Max tends to not listen and do what he is told. I have wondered why the parents are never around-- as they have bunny scout leader, Grandma and other 'adults' on there....
