Katie's watching Max & Ruby right now. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's a kids' show on Noggin about two little bunnies, brother and sister, Max and Ruby. Ruby is the older sister of Max. For some reason, Ruby is always taking care of Max. In all of the episodes I've seen of this show, I have never once seen their parents. They have a grandmother that they visit occasionally, but that's the only relative they seem to have.
So, where are their parents? And why do they expect Ruby to always take care of Max? Why doesn't Ruby ever get any time without Max? This kid is totally exasperating with all of the trouble he gets into. I think Ruby could really use a break. I'm surprised Ruby hasn't run away yet!
And what about their grandmother? If their parents are so neglectful that they are never around for their children and make Ruby take care of Max all by herself, why hasn't the grandmother stepped in and done something about it? She's got to see how bad the situation in their home is. Doesn't she care?
