Max & Ruby airs on Nickelodeon in Canada, and in the United Kingdom on Nick Jr..


After receiving complains about how Max and Ruby's parents are never seen in the series, Wells told Nick Jr. that "we don't see Max and Ruby's parents, because I believe that kids resolve their issues and conflicts differently when they are on their own. The television series gives kids a sense about how these two siblings resolve their conflicts in a humorous and entertaining way."[10] In season 6 however, the series introduced Max and Ruby's parents.[11]
