PROFILE: Mae Fünke
We take a look at Maeby Fünke in the last part of our nine-part series profiling Newport Beach’s own Bluth family.
The only child of hippie parents Tobias and Lindsay Fünke, Mae Fünke, better known as Maeby, grew up in an environment without boundaries. To make matters worse, her parents enrolled her at Boston’s Sunshine Academy, an institution that does not use quantitative methods to measure its pupil’s performance, instead awarding them with crocodiles and Elvii.
When the family returned to the Newport Beach area, Maeby did not have the discipline necessary to study and get good grades. Maeby seems content to waste her time and receive C- and D-minuses.
Away from school, the fourteen-year-old has become familiar with trouble. According to flamer T-Bone, Maeby was responsible for an accounting fraud at the Bluth Company’s frozen banana stand, a Newport Beach landmark. Also, surveillance video tape obtained by The O.P. shows that Maeby was involved in a recent break-in at the permit office. The break-in led to the arrest of Maeby’s cousin and co-worker at the banana stand, George Michael.

I’m the first to comment! Do I get a prize? I love prizes! Do I get to choose? Oh goody! I want chocolate bars, Care Bears, and anime DVDs! Oh, and Garbage Pail Kid cards! I love the GPK! ^_^
Maeby’s my favorite character on AD, and Miss Alia’s a really swell gal! I miss her as Hannah on "State of Grace", which was a really great show!

I was the first to comment and they deleted my message! How rude! I suppose now I won’t be getting any yummy prizes? That makes me so depressed. . . I think I’ll cry. . .
Did you know that literally thousands of people everyday suffer from BS? It’s true! Such a horrible and debilitating disease! We must find a cure soon before anymore innocents suffer! No more BS! NO MORE BS!
