The Problem with Max

I abhor the show Max and Ruby and thankfully we don't watch it much. Today we were watching it and I figured out what bugged me so much about this show.

Many people hate the show because of the lack of parents and how damn bossy Ruby is. But what always bothered me was the Max never talked more than one word an episode. And if he uttered more, it was always the same fraking word.

Now, I know that Max is suppose to be around the age my daughter is (according to Wikipedia - he's 3!). My daughter said her first word when she was 9 months old, and has been at least babbling ever since. Now at 2 years and 9 months she talks all the time, even using sentences.

If Max was a real kid (and if he had parents), he'd be on the train to speech therapy. He does not, in my opinion, accurately portray a 3 year old. I know it's not a big deal, but it bugs me all the same.

  1. Max can talk, and even though I can't remember the episode right now, there is one where he says a full sentence. I love this show and watch it with my daughter all the time. All childrens shows have something that doesn't make sense. They are for the kids not us after all. The things that don't make sense don't need to or matter to them because they don't view it as we do. In my opinion Max doesn't talk much because he is to busy trying to help his sister, not because he can't. He is just a quiet child ain't nothin wrong with that.
