- The Crosswire family portrait that includes Muffy, as well as her parents Ed and Millicent, and brother Chip can be seen on one of the pages, but Muffy's parents and brother did not make an actual appearance. Her family hasn't been shown again until the cartoon, which changed their appearances, but leaving Muffy's signature hairstyle unchanged.
