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.

The inseparable brother and sister duo were the stars of the animated children's television series, Max & Ruby, based on the book series of the same name by Rosemary Wells.

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.

One fan theory claims that the parents are dead, and an urn placed above the fireplace at Max & Ruby's house proves it.

Another theory surfaced on Twitter suggesting that the parents were killed by a wolf

Some fans of the show are convinced that the siblings killed their own parents.

As twisted as it may sound, some people believe that Gramma killed the parents so she could have annoying Max and bossy Ruby all to herself.

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.

Macaulay Culkin Opens Up About 'Home Alone' And 'My Girl' In New Interview With Ellen

Macaulay Culkin was one of the biggest stars of the 90s. He was in so many of our childhood favorites including both of the Home Alone movies, My Girl, and Richie Rich. His ability to act so well at such a young age gave him an advantage over a lot of the other child stars at the time, and by the time he was a teenager he had been in over a dozen movies. It wasn't easy being a child star, and when he was 14 he decided to take time off to go to high school and live a

Shelley Duval Says That Robin Williams Is Alive And She Knows Where He Is

Robin Williams was one of our generations finest actors. He was a comedic genius with a mind that was constantly running a mile a minute. He was more clever than any of us could ever hope to be, and we were lucky to have had him for the short time we did. While he passed away too young, Williams made a lot of amazing hit movies. Movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, and Good Will Hunting all proved he was capable at making entertaining content that we all loved. But his first big staring role in a motion picture was actually

The 'Dawson's Creek' Cast Reunited And It'll Make You Wish You Could Go Back To Capeside

Dawson's Creek was one of the most iconic shows on television in the 90s. It was basically all of our first glimpses of what teen drama looked like, and even though our lives were nothing like those of Capeside, we sure felt like we were a part of it. Personally, I was always a fan of Joey Potter. She had such an interesting backstory and I felt really bad that she lost her mother. I was always on Team Pacey too, so the fact that they ended up together was everything we wanted. Dawson's career obviously turned out okay and

Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the
