YMMV / Max and Ruby

  • Broken Base: When the show is brought up, expect people to take sides between the two title characters and fight to the death. Max is generally the one most people root for, but Ruby has a strong fanbase too.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming:
    • The ending to the episode "Goodnight Max" where it ends with Max falling asleep while wishing goodnight to Walky Talky Bear with it replying to Max's comment.
    • A sweeter ending similar to that episode is "Max's Rubber Elephant" where Max finally founds his toy elephant under a pile of stuff Ruby put on Max's bed. Before Max leaves his room to sleep in his sister's bed, he looks back and says "Goodnight Ruby" in a sincere tone. This moment shows that despite messing with his sister most of the time, he really cares about Ruby.
  • Designated Monkey: Ruby likes to screw Max over. He's very good at screwing her back.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song. Admit it: after all these years it's still stuck in your head.
  • Memetic Mutation:
  • Moe: A lot of characters on this show count, such as Max and Ruby themselves.
    • Martha and Baby Huffington are also very cute looking characters.
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel: Love the show or not you have to got admit there are some moments in the show that can give you a warm and happy feeling. The soundtrack most of the time is also very laid back and gives you a feeling like you're home.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some fans were not happy with the 2016/2017 season, specifically with bringing in the parents, updating the theme song, and having Max speak in full sentences.
  • Uncanny Valley:
    • The bunnies seen in the episodes in Bunningham Palace look a little off. Especially when the queen briefly shows up.
    • The grandmother just has a rather...uncomfortable vibe about her, it doesn't help that she's the only character with colored eyes.
