It’s a kid’s show on Nick, and I can’t stand it. Max and Ruby is a show about two bunnies, brother and sister. Max is 3 and Ruby is 7. Max is always trying to get away with stuff and Ruby is always trying to make him behave.
What bugs me the most about this show is the complete lack of parents. A 7-year old apparently takes care of a 3-year old all by herself. She makes all the decisions on what to do and when to do it. She gets after Max when he’s bad. Before I knew the background of the show, I was starting to think she was a teenage un-wed single mother to Max, which would explain why she seemed so young and yet was completely on her own in raising him
Another problem, Max is always trying to get away with something. Ruby tells him to stop and he just ends up sneaking around and doing it anyway. Of course, in typical liberal cartoon fashion, even though the child breaks the rules, everything turns out good in the end so there’s no repercussions for doing wrong.
Overall it’s typical Nick fare. Kids on their own, no need for parents since the kids are so worldly themselves.
What do you think about the show...do you like it, do your kids watch it...it it really doing any harm or are the "haters" just over reacting??
