Guybrush's parents?

posted by BeeKay84 on - last edited - Viewed by 235 users

According to the MI Wiki, the names of Guybrush's parents are Dwayne and Bertha. Where the heck did we ever hear their names? Or is this just some kind of joke I don't understand?

I left the thread title neutral like this, so we could maybe discuss any other questions concerning Guybrush's parents. Like, are they really dead, did they really abandon him, and why did they name him "Guybrush" etc.? ;)

  • The name Threepwood was taken from one of P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster books (I forget which one). One of the minor characters had the last name, Threepwood.

    MI2, I think. Probably at the bit where Guybrush finds their skeletons in LeChuck's stronghold - or does he?

    Um... *no*!!!

    The Threepwood family are the protagonists of the Blandings Saga, even longer-running and even better than the Bertie Wooster stories.

    ... some of Guybrush's guesses are funny, too. xD

    This. I just did this a couple nights ago and was actually specifically looking for it. Also, when the waitress (whose name is Elayne) says "Wrong, their names are Dwayne and Bertha. Everyone knows that!", Guybrush replies "Well, I didn't." Maybe Guybrush also suffered a couple coconuts to the head?

  • I think the name was made up by ozzie and shouldnt be taken as canon

  • It's possible, especially considering how many other inaccuracies there are about Guybrush in Planet Threepwood, but at the same time, the four dialogue options, all of which are wrong, indicates to me that it's entirely possible that Guybrush actually has forgotten his own parents' names, so maybe we've never even heard their names for real at all.

    he says they abandoned him in 2 but if you look at a feather or somthing he says its like the one dad had at his wedding mabey implying they got marryed after he was born and he never names then in MI 2 Im seriously hopeing there in land of the dead

  • I hope that it turns out Guybrush changed his surname to Threepwood because his dad was called "Dwayne Dibbley". That'd be awesome.
