Hector's mom is a witch. But he's most likely adopted.
There's also Larry and his girlfriend, though Larry is the only one with an identified species, a talking, walking rock with legs and arms.
If Gumball doesn't attend any clubs, why did his family bring him along to the school for Club Day? He was just going to have to sit around for hours, and would be on his out there just the same as at home.
I suppose they just wanted to encourage Gumball to try and join a club.
May I remind you that he's GUMBALL?! Nicole probably thought that if they left him at home, he'd somehow destroy the house (he has flooded the house once.)
Actually that was Anais and I'm very sure they have left him home alone before since it's not the first club day for the Wattersons just the first Gumball came along.
Just how old are most of the adults in the show? Nicole and Richard's age can be estimated to be around their late-30's or early-40's, along with the other characters visible in Nicole's flashback to her junior high days like Penny's Dad and Mr. Small, but then Mr. Robinson makes a sudden appearance in Richard's flashback in a later episode, and it's been said that he's at least fifty! What the what?!
If Gumball is so dumb, how did he get to middle school? I do not want the "because he's Gumball" excuse. I would be happy if someone could answer.
The Elmore educational system is seriously messed up.
In a world mostly filled with idiots the education system's standards would be more lax.
This was touched upon in "The Finale" where Principal Brown realizes this and quotes,
"Principal Brown: I'm afraid I have some not-very shocking news. It appears that Gumball and Darwin have to restart school from kindergarten. Because all you do at school is argue about your little problems and aggravate students and staff members until they go nuts and chase you through the halls. None of which makes for a decent education!"
Darwin is a fish. Why, as we see in "The Responsible", does he and Gumball serve Anais (along with a boot and something else) a literal fish sandwich?
Well, he's a specific type of fish. The question would likely be similar to asking why you served someone hamburger, when you're a mammal too ^EDIT^ actually, I'll go with ham instead, since from what I've heard the taste is the closest to that of humans.
Darwin is a fish. He sleeps in a fish bowl, and this shows he can breathe underwater. So why is it that in "The Pressure" when he's hiding in the pool, he comes up coughing up water and gasping for air?
Maybe it's the chlorine?
I like this theory. Anyone who has ever been in an indoor pool knows that the chlorine smell can get really strong. Being in that water for him is probably like being in a room full of smoke.
In "The Mustache", Miss Simian is shown teaching her class about puberty of the human body... But why?, when none of the characters in the show are human? For that matter, the only confirmed primate we've seen period is Simian...
Many of the characters tend to have the general characteristics of one head, two arms, two legs, basic brain/lungs/heart/digestive system; the human shape might just be considered an "overlap" of all the others, or an agreed-on composite of all the different body types.
Justified, because latter in the episode, Gumball, Darwin, and Anais experience puberty due to their cereal being mixed up with testosterone supplements. The fact that cats, rabbits, and fish don't go through such changes in real life mean anthropomorphic biology. Also, isn't Carrie still human or whatever despite being a ghost?
Nope, apparently she was born a ghost... somehow. But since humans haven't ever been shown to exist within the show (Santa is an elf), are there any humans? And if they don't even exist, how can there be pictures that model their pubescent nature?.. D'you think that, in the show's universe, humans are fictional?
Humans appear briefly in a television program in "the Watch."
Humans are confirmed to exist in the episode "The Sweaters"... they look like cartoon characters straight from a Filmation series but still they are honest to goodness humans.
Did it ever occur to Anais and Darwin that they could've just taken down the embarrassing video of Gumball from "The Secret"? The damage to Gumball's reputation has probably already been done by now, but they could've done it immediately, and doing it at any time would've helped, or at least prevented Gumball from seeing it.
What's the fun in that?
Carrie was born a ghost. How does that work?
All I can think of is fridge horror.
The Cartoon Network character webpage states Miss Simian has been teaching second grade for 300,000 years. Dismissing the latter part, does this mean Gumball is a 12 year old in second grade?
Maybe they meant to write secondary school, which in the UK (where the show is produced) would be for children 11-17 and in the US would refer to either middle school or high school, the former making more sense given Gumball's age.
Given the frequent use of Britishisms on the show (they're subtle, such as "what shall we do" instead of "what are we going to do"), this seems to be the most likely explanation.
How can Nicole say there's no such things as ghosts WHEN THERE'S ONE GOING TO THE FREAKING SCHOOL?
Maybe she's never met Carrie.
She actually met Carrie in the Halloween episode.
How is it possible for Alan the Balloon to do homework at his school when obviously... he has no arms?
He probably has someone to write for him, like some physically disabled kids do in real life.
Why does Richard drive so competently in "The Party"?
