Meanwhile, Jim in FL. expanded on Jef's own interpretation of Joe from Blue's Clues as a mental patient in a hospital or halfway house:
t should be noted that Steve's therapy obviously did not hold, as he went on tour as a Punk Rock Musician, and occasionally revisits Joe in "the House".
And Delphine Dryden gave us her own twisted interpretation of Max and Ruby:
But you've missed one of the best ones, Max and Ruby. Where exactly ARE Max and Ruby's parents? Why is a pre-verbal child left in the care of an also-young sister with pathological control issues? I think it's pretty obvious Ruby killed the parents and the grandmother is covering for her.
