Fudge has Asperger's Syndrome.That explains why he has a rather peculiar personality, and he has great interests in certain objects (ie birds, money, etc.). He also has annoyingly quirky habits, such as counting 200 cheerios before eating them.
- It's likely that Fudge's friend in Superfudge, Daniel Manheim, may have Asperger's Syndrome as well. He also shows a great interest in birds, and also has the habit of asking someone "Wanna make somethin' of it?" in a tough-guy accent. He's also picky about certain things, especially foods, and frequently mentions so. note
