Burns' and Smithers' relationship
This page and the one for Smithers say that Mr. Burns raised him or took him as a foster son, and I see no evidence of this in the show. All we can glean from season 13's The Blunder Years is that he held Smithers Jr. as an infant when his father went to fix the reactor. In season 3's Homer Defined, Smithers mentions writing to his mother, so we know that his father dying didn't make him an orphan, and that he has a relationship with and presumably grew up with his mother.
For that matter, it's apparent that neither man views their relationship as paternal - Burns viewing Smithers as an employee and companion, and Smithers viewing him as a boss and love interest. 220.127.116.11 10:21, December 7, 2015 (UTC)
I think we should combine this page with "Charles Montgomery Burns," depending on which name we want the article to go by. -- Thai420 15:37, May 27, 2006 (UTC)
According to episode 1304 (http://wtso.net/movie/52-The%20Simpsons%201304%20A%20Hunka%20Hunka%20Burns%20in%20Love.html - at about 8:20), Mr. Burns is 104. -- 18.104.22.168 2:05, May 4, 2009 (UTC)
- Yes, but more recent episodes are usually more correct. Dohayecarumbadoh 17:34, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
- It is possible that not even Mr. Burns knows his real age. -- Terry12fins24 (talk) 9:29, May 1, 2013 (UTC)
Doesn't Burns have alot more siblings than what is list i mean what about the ones in the photo from the episode double double boy in trouble? -- Firelord jay 20:03, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
- Probably but they are unnamed. -- 22.214.171.124 20:09, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
- His native brother is George Burns. When Mr. Burns left his native family with a "loveless billionaire", he had many siblings in his new family, but they all died. This could be the reason why Mr. Burns seems to be the only child in many episodes. By the way, there are already pages for his siblings on the wiki. -- Terry12fins24 (talk) 9:27, May 1, 2013 (UTC)
