Max is a young boy who is a little rough around the edges. His full first name is Maxwell.
In #563: “Tuesdays with Wooton” we find out that Max does have a mother and grandma. Though his parents are apparently still married, his father is often traveling for work; his father's repeated absences are discussed in #531: “Teacher's Pest” and again in #604: “Like Father, Like Wooton”. Also in this episode Max mentions that he has an uncle who is a therapist.
In #531: “Teacher's Pest”, it is revealed that his parents work long hours and are not deeply involved in his life - for example, his father wishes him happy birthday by way of a sticky note.
- In #560: “The Present Long Ago”, Max has a crush on Mandy Straussberg.
- Max had Trent deliver a valentine to Mandy (#560: “The Present Long Ago”).
- For his birthday, Max was given an automatic scoring machine for his air hockey table from Mandy (#531: “Teacher's Pest”).
