Title: NMB families with one child
Post by: NeighborC on August 08, 2011, 10:37:12 PM
I just thought of this. It seems to me that most (if not all) of the families in the NMB have only one child. The Platapus family has only Ana, Prince Tuesday is an only child, and the Templetons have only one. I'm not familiar with the Froggs, but I believe they only had one as well? It seems kind of surprising that out of three or four families, each only has one.

i don't know if there's anything surprising about it but it would allow them to do some storylines about brothers and sisters if there had been some siblings in the families.

About the Templeton Jones family, it seemed that in the last week of episodes, Betty was featured, but her last name wasn't Jones.  She was solo.  What happened to her husband and baby?

That's what I thought too, would have had more opportunities for storylines. Perhaps the reason is it would have required more puppeteers and people to do voices, than was possible.

I remember that, was she just called Betty Templeton in that one? I don't recall who she was referred to as, but I do remember she was in the scene helping Lady Elaine.
