So, why is Max mute?
Now, we know what you are thinking. GET TO THE POINT. What could possibly be so bad? What has everyone freaking out? According to Distractify, there are a few pretty dark theories surrounding Max & Ruby. The first involves the question of where the heck are their parents? Ruby is always taking care of little Max. Do they not have a mother and father somewhere in the background?
Rumor had it Max and Ruby murdered their parents. This dark rumor was eventually cleared when the parents finally made an appearance five seasons into the series.

Ok, so why is Max mute? Well, there was a time where a fake communication doctored up to look like it involved the production team circulated on the Internet. The communication suggested Max sustained a head injury. He sustained it during the car accident that killed their parents. Hence the parents not being in the show. And, Max being mute. Obviously, that rumor was debunked when the parents eventually showed up.
A more dark and twisted theory, however, about why Max is mute is what has fans talking. Some suggested Max was molested by his grandmother. And, that is why he doesn’t speak. Moreover, the theory explains he created “Super Bunny” to deal with the trauma his grandmother left behind. His obsession with police cars and ambulances only seems to strengthen the theory that he has a traumatic past.
