    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_in_the_middle

    Last name:

    The last name of the family has been revealed only once in the show, in the pilot episode, where Francis wears the name tag "Wilkerson" on his school uniform (it can be seen best in the scene where he is talking with his family on the phone). Also, though unaired, it appears in a joke from the original pilot script. In that script, Malcolm was walking to school when a neighborhood kid came running up shouting, "Malcolm, Malcolm, Malcolm. I was talking to my parents last night - I was listening to them talk, and what's your last name?" "Wilkerson, why?" Malcolm replied. "Oh. Who are the Pariahs?" said the other kid. The joke was eventually cut. One theory of why their last name has been played down is that the producers did not want them to be typecast as any particular ethnicity, and they likely hoped rerun viewers would miss Francis' name tag.
    Location:

    The setting of the show has never been revealed. The locale doesn't appear to have noticeable seasons, and also appears not to be in a desert environment, so one could conjecture the setting is somewhere in suburban California (the show is filmed in this state). Also, the schools the teens attend has the look and layout of a common California public school, with classes in many single story buildings, separated by open-air common areas, instead of a single multistory building.
    In various scenes, especially in later seasons, license plates show a non-existing "Cherokee State". Despite that, the look of the plates intentionally made like California's, such as the font of the words "Cherokee State", and digits are in the format of "1 XXX 111", where 1 is a digit, and X is a letter. However, in one episode, Hal comes to visit Francis at military school and upon seeing his father, Francis exclaims, "you drove eight hours just to see me!" The school is known to be located in Alabama, so Malcolm's family must live within an eight-hour drive of the state, perhaps in Florida. On the other hand there is also an episode where Reese is sent to Whitehorse on a bus for at least 52 hours. Malcom: "Reese, think about it. It takes 26 hours to get to Canada, and 26 hours to get back. Your bag is filled with food and nobody called Grandma!" Only Alaska is within a 26 hour drive of Whitehorse, Canada. However, in episode 43, Alaska is stated to be "5000 miles away. in the episode "Krelboyle Picnic", Francis says "So i'm still a member of the family even after you sent me away to military school 1,000 miles away".

    It is also likely that there is no real-world location that is consistent with all the facts about Malcolm's location given in the show.
    In episode 112, on a desk in the brother's room, is what appears to be an In-N-Out Burger coffee mug. If this is true, its likely the show is in states such as California, Nevada, or Arizona as the In-N-Out food chain is ONLY in these three states. Although, because the show is filmed in California, it is likely just added there from a cast member or crew member, since In-N-Out is popular among celebrities.

    That site also has age info, it's a table and it screwed up when I tried posting it here, so go to the Wikipedia link & scroll down.

    Just read somewhere that MITM is filmed in Studio City - not sure whether that has anything to do with where they live in the show.

    No, that's not where they live; just where they film it. The Fox studios were filled up with shows back in 2000 when the show started shooting (1999 actually) so they rented out studios at CBS instead.

    According to Justin Berfield's forum, the house was sold some time last year. I thought it was earlier than that.... it was for sale in the article I read a few years back... used to have a screencap of it but I can't find it on any of my CDs of MITM files . I doubt it would still be on the Internet either.

    Yeah, but that's Dewey. He's weird like that. He could live in Maine and decide he wants to be king of Idaho for all we know.

    Default Re: The Family's Last Name and House Discussion

    I am casting my vote that the family lives in Southern California somewhere. My reasons stem from a few episodes, but mainly "Burning Man". Burning man is a real festival held every year in the desert of Nevada just south of Las Vegas. Now, if they live somewhere in S.California, it should only take a few hours to get out there, and you remember that Malcolm and Reese were going to hitchhick their way to the festival. Malcolm and Reese were going to leave on a Friday(in my book) and said they would be back on Monday. That would be an appropriate time frame to get to Burning man from S.California, stay at the festival a few days, then get home Monday.
    Anyway, thats what I believe. Now the question is what city do they live in?
