Malcolm in the Middle Trivia

    

"In the Middle" refers to the fact that Malcolm has an older and a younger brother.

In episode #10, "Stock Car Races", when Hal and the boys return home from the race track they discover that Lois went through all of their stuff while they were gone. One of the items she left laying out was a pack of Morley cigarettes. That's the same ficticious brand that was smoked by the "Cigarette Smoking Man" on the X-Files TV show and by "Spike" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Morleys have been used on numerous other TV series and many theatrical films as a way to portray smoking without giving free advertising to an actual brand and to prevent possible law suits.

While the exact location of Malcolm's house has never been mentioned, the street address was mentioned in episode #81, "Reese's Party". It was 12334 Maple Boulevard Millbrook. The actual house that is used for shots of the exterior of Malcolm's home is located at 12334 Cantura Street in Studio City, California. Many cars have been seen on the show with California license tags and even the family vehicle was seen sporting California plates in episode #17, "Traffic Jam" so we can be pretty sure that they live in some part of California.

The writers also really went out of their way to hide Malcolm and his family's last name. In the pilot episode, however, you could see a nametag on Francis with the name "Wilkerson" on it. There was also a scene cut from the pilot where Malcolm is asked what his last name is and he responds, "Wilkerson".

Frankie Muniz (Malcolm) is actally 82 days older than costar Justin Berfield (Reese) even though he played Reese's little brother on the series. Frankie Muniz (Malcolm) was 14, Justin Berfield (Reese) was 13, Erik Per Sullivan (Dewey) was 8, Christopher Masterson (Francis) was just 11 days shy of 20 on the day that the first episode of Malcolm in the Middle aired.

Opening Narrative

(Frankie Muniz's Voice as Malcolm - The first episode)

"This is the world. With a 196 million square miles. If I covered a hundred square miles an hour, every hour for the rest of my life, I still wouldn't see half of it. This is the left nostril of my brother, Reese. It squeaks ... all ... night ... long. These are the freezin' cold feet of my little brother, Dewey. This is my oldest brother, Francis, He's the one I really like, So, of course, he got sent to Military School. My name is Malcolm. You wanna know what the best thing about childhood is. At some point it stops."

Theme Song

Title: "Malcolm in the Middle"

By: "They Might Be Giants"


Yes
No
Maybe
I don't know
Can you repeat the question?

You're not the boss of me now
You're not the boss of me now
You're not the boss of me now

And you're not do big

You're not the boss of me now
You're not the boss of me now
You're not the boss of me now

And you're not so big
Life is unfair.
