Getfuzzy: 'Tails' from the fuzzy side (yeaaaahhhhh.....see what I did there?)
Apparently blogging is the cool thing to do now. I decided to jump on the bandwagon, and create a collection of my mind's most random contemplations of.... well, everything.
Things I like include: GLEE! Horses! Spring Awakening! Wicked! The Hunger Games trilogy! Harry Potter! House! Pokemon! Randomness! Did I mention I'm a nerd?
Number one Glee and Lea Michele fan!

She’s so awesome! Her and Jayma Mays are just the cutest little chipmunks
‘Max and Ruby’ is a television show for kids on Nickelodeon about a brother and sister bunny. Ruby is said to be a seven year old, while Max is a toddler. It was originally a book based on the author’s childhood. When my brother and I were knee-high to a grasshopper we used to love it. I was 10,…
I’m so fucking tired of people asking where the fuck max and rubies parents are, so here is a long winded rant.
Where the fuck are Max and Ruby’s parents?
The show is supposed to show the siblings working out problems on their own, without the constant need of parents. Not only that, but the show is about talking bunnies and you’re bitching about how realistic it should be? Seriously? Yes, they have parents, but the show is supposed to be about giving children responsibility, one inch at a time. Ruby is allowed to babysit, even though she is seven, but she always has an adult close by to help her if she needs it. She is allowed to ride the bus alone, but you could argue that it’s a small town they live in and everybody knows everybody, etc. They’re not worried about theoretical bunny rape/homicide because it’s a fucking children’s show. With your train of thought, you should also wonder why Kailan (sorry if I spelled that wrong) just goes wherever the fuck she wants with a tiger and a koala and a monkey (and where the fuck are her parents??) and why diego who is about ten is allowed to be alone in a jungle with a bunch of animals that could kill him.
Why isn’t the grandma concerned?
Same reasons stated above.
Why are max and Ruby the only white bunnies?
I can’t believe this is an actual question. Diversity. A way to tell max and ruby from the rest. Seriously?
Why does Max always get his way?
You’re both right, they’re both little shits, but in this way they embody the stereotypical sibling relationship. It gives the younger audience something to relate to, because they may have a bossy older sibling/parent. The older audience can relate to ruby because it seems as though they never get their way, and their siblings are annoying. In the end everyone is usually happy, and it’s a way to teach compromise. Plus, max is a toddler, and with toddlers it’s always me, myself, and I, and it has NOTHING to do with being ‘developmentally delayed’. It’s just how toddlers are, and max seems to be about that age.
Why are bunnies humanized but other animals aren’t?
They are the humans of their world, and honestly, just for simplicity.
No, seriously, where the fuck are the parents?
MAX AND RUBY HAVE PARENTS, THE AUTHOR EVEN SAID SO. A:ILSHJBMDFJLASH:IOUSDFBKJ<FNSIO:HDFSBKJXCM
Thanks for the reblog and your opinions. This is just a fluff piece. I don’t really care where their parents are and I think it’s still an educational children’s show. As a writer I enjoy challenging myself by finding flaws in the things I like. It’s a challenge to look past what you usually see and dig for the flip side (of course, it also helps that I’m kind of a realist haha). In this way it was not meant to be an actual representation of my true opinions about it. It was simply meant to be entertaining (and to some, it was).
Thanks for the feedback =]
‘Max and Ruby’ is a television show for kids on Nickelodeon about a brother and sister bunny. Ruby is said to be a seven year old, while Max is a toddler. It was originally a book based on the author’s childhood. When my brother and I were knee-high to a grasshopper we used to love it. I was 10, way past the target audience age, but when I was home from school sick I watched the shit out of that show. The art is adorable, the anthropomorphic bunnies are voiced well, the stories are cute- but… well… I have issues with it.
•Where the Fuck are the Parents?
Really. One might assume they just work a lot, but why are they not seen tucking Max into bed or celebrating Christmas and Thanksgiving together (all things we’ve seen the siblings do by themselves). One might also assume they simply have no parents, maybe that’s just the life cycle of bunnies? No. Other parents are certainly seen, and Ruby is still extremely child- like. I mean, she’s seven. She’s off having tea parties and gossiping on the phone instead of balancing checkbooks. Which reminds me: who pays the rent? Buys groceries? We’ve seen Ruby take Max to the store to buy shoes and clothes, who’s paying for that?! For sure, Max and Ruby have parents. In fact, there’s a picture of them in the house! And don’t even try to tell me it came with the frame, because Max and Ruby are in it!
We’ve proven that there are parents. So where are they? Dead, you say? Well, this certainly would explain Max’s constant misbehaving and delayed development. However, they seem extremely happy to be grieving. Another reason why this doesn’t fit: after both parents die usually the state is alerted to the existence of children and they are immediately placed in the system. THEREFORE I conclude that the parents just abandoned them. It’s the only logical answer. At least they have Grandma… Which leads me to my next point…
•Why is Grandma Not Concerned?
Grandma bunny frequently drops in for tea, but obviously doesn’t care enough to call CPS or care for them herself. And no, as we’ve already established she’s not grieving the loss of her son/daughter. So where does Grandma’s uncaring attitude come from? Maybe because Max is Satan and fucks shit up whenever people aren’t looking? That makes sense, but she could call Child Protective Services (Bunny Protective Services?) and tell them she’s too old and frail to care for them. That could be plausible, they’d believe that. Grandma Bunny: why do you not give a fuck that your seven year old granddaughter is raising your young grandson? The fuck is wrong with you?!
•Why are Max and Ruby the Only White Bunnies?
I mean, God forbid that children watching the show might mistake a white town citizen for Max and Ruby’s parents. God forbid we give the kiddies some comfort. There’s grey bunnies, and various shades of brown (one of which has a deep ass old lady smoker’s voice, but that’s an issue for another day)/red (none are black that I know of). Why?
•Why Does Max Always Get His Way?
Max (possibly suffering from the absence of parents) is kind of a shithead. I mean, maybe he’s crying out for attention? His sister Ruby can be kind of a little bitch to Max, and she has every right to be. Seven year olds aren’t cut out to be fucking parents! She doesn’t know what the fuck she’s doing. Her experience comes from playing mommy to her bunny dolls. Dolls don’t talk back. Dolls don’t try to eat the cookies you just made for Bunny Scouts. Still, what’s strange is that Max’s constant whining and shenanigans somehow always solves Ruby’s problems. For instance, Ruby wants to make neglectful Grandma tangleberry salsa (which is somehow her favorite dessert?? Unless it’s tangleberry sauce… still doesn’t make sense), but Max bitches and moans that he wants ice cream. Ruby gives in, because lets face it, she has no clue how to discipline her charge. They make the ice cream as per Satan’s request, when Ruby realizes that Grandma is coming and they never made the salsa (?). An apologetic Ruby explains what happened, but Grandma is thrilled about her other favorite treat. Again, Max gets his way.
•Why are the Bunnies Humanized, But Not Other Animals?
This is an age old debate ever since Pluto and Goofy. Why is Goofy a ‘person’, but Pluto is a pet? Both are dogs so both should be people, right? Wrong. The same can be said of ‘Max and Ruby’. Nevermind the talking rabbits- lizards, frogs, etc are all ‘animals’. To their defense, at least they don’t have a pet rabbit.
•No, Seriously Where the Fuck are the Parents??
Dora the Explorer’s parents let her run all over hell with a monkey, but at least she HAS parents! For fuck’s sake why are Nick Jr. parents so damn irresponsible? Max and Ruby’s parents aren’t irresponsible because they DON’T EVEN HAVE PARENTS. Which maybe still makes them irresponsible? Max is aproximately two years old, according to the author. So why doesn’t he speak in full sentences yet or dress himself (or at least attempt to)?
Dear writers: would it kill you to draw in parents for the holiday specials?
And God said unto Abraham, “Abraham.”
And Abraham replied, “What.”
God said to John, “Come forth and receive eternal life.” But John came fifth and won a toaster.
And Judas approached the rabbis and Pharisees saying, “The one whom I kiss is the one you seek.”
To which they responded, “Gay.”
And thus, god made Eve. And she was bammin’ slammin’ bootylicious.
