If you have a toddler and get cable… you have probably watched Max & Ruby somewhere along the line.
The show is about a brother and sister duo with all kinds of adventures and the projects they partake in. Ruby is Max’s older and extremely bossy sister. In fact, if Ruby were my sister I am sure I would have told her to screw off by now. But Max is a trooper, putting up with her and whatever she drags him into. Or whatever older-sibling abuse she dishes out for the day.
In fact some people along the way have actually thought Ruby was Max’s mother because she is just that damn bossy.
But alas, Ruby is an older sister and Max is a pretty non-verbal toddler.
Watching the entire series a couple dozen times has lead me to one damn question… Where in the hell are their parents? You never ever see their mom or dad. Occasionally their grandmother will come by their house, or they will visit her at her house. But never have we seen actual parental units.
Now I know these rabbits aren’t orphans, but damn… Ruby takes Max everywhere! Clothes shopping, selling Bunny Scout cookies, tea parties…you name it and she’s taken him there. Maybe she is just a built-in babysitter for the younger rabbit? Kind of like the Duggars?
I resigned myself to never knowing the answer until a couple of nights ago. After watching an episode with my toddler I got onto my Facebook fan page and asked all of the lovely readers my burning question – where the hell are Max & Ruby’s parents?!?!!?!?!?
The comedy that ensued from that point on was absolutely too priceless not to share. The magical excuses some readers have actually made up as to where the negligent parents were hanging out had me laughing so hard I cried.
So here you have it… Where Max & Ruby’s parents really are!
