Wondering Where Max And Ruby's Parents Are? We Finally Have An Answer

- Page 1

In 2002, one of our favorite television networks, Nickelodeon, introduced the TV adaptation of "Max & Ruby" to the world.

If you ever watched the show, you know that Gayla "Grandma" Bunny is Max & Ruby's only known relative, so you've undoubtedly asked, "What happened to their parents?"

Among the many unsolved mysteries of the early 2000s, this one always bothered us and it turns out, we're not alone. There are even memes addressing this mystery.

There have been a number of theories about the mama and papa bunny over the years, and while some seem logical, others are far off.

Then there's the person who thinks the show is set in a post apocalyptic world where the parents are dead...


While all of these theories are interesting, none of them are true. Max & Ruby's creator finally provided an explanation for why we never see the parents, and well, it's not exactly what we expected.

My mother and I always get mistaken for being sisters, even though we have a 20-year age difference. One time we swapped faces on a mobile app and the image didn't even change! Not all mother-daughters are like this, but there are many cases where you know a daughter is going to look just like their mother when they grow up. Sometimes they already do...upsocl42-year-old actress Drew Barrymore gave birth to
