Pickles Singular or Plural?

If a family name is singular but has the S at the end, the plural form would have suffix -es. Pickles is singular, but its plural form for the family as a whole would be Pickleses. Creators Arlene Klasky-Csupo and her husband Gabor Csupo and the sole owner Nickelodeon (a division of Viacom) who know their grammar professionally well, they know the plural form is Pickleses, while Pickles is singular. However, is one of the family members like owns a particular item (Tommy for instance), if his/her last name is included, the singular would be Pickles's, and if the whole family lives in that particular house and own it altogther (though Stu and Didi are the rightful owners since theyr'e the parents), the plural would be Pickleses'. Both surnames Pickles and Jones have the S at the end, so their plural forms would have the -es suffix. Please note that there are plural forms that would fall into the category of irregular.

Well for one thing Pickeses is not even a word if I type Pickleses' or Pickles's in a word document or even google for that matter it automatically tries to correct it to Pickles' as that is the correct form as the homes belong to the Pickles family and i've learned that if it has an S at the end of the name you just put the ' after the S so it is stil plural at it doesn't look so sloppy as to be honest Pickleses sounds like something the babies would say.

Let's be honest. Pickles is a family name. The only instance that the word pickles exists as a plural is when referring to the type of vegetable where its singular form is pickle, but especially the slang usage meaning when someone is in trouble (such as when Angelica is in a pickle for breaking Tommy's lamp in "The Trial"). As I researched "Pickleses'", I found out that professional writers who are working for Nickelodeon or doing something with Nickelodeon's legal commercial consent are using the plural Pickleses. Proper grammar is the key to formal and professional writing. Besides, Nickelodeon would not tolerate an employee using Pickles as the plural, and Nickelodeon knows how to tell the difference between singular and plural. If I were a Nickelodeon employee, they would fire me if I used Pickles in the plural instance when it's supposed to be Pickleses, and such companies like them mandate proper grammar. Again, any word with an S in the end in singular form would have the suffix -es for the plural in order to avoid confusion. The only words that can be used as both singular and plural and still be spelled the same would be words without the S at the end, such as moose and deer.

Yes I'm aware it's a family name and instead of Pickleses it could just be Pickles Household as for example I learned that Edwardses can either become the Edwards Family or Edwards Household if Edwardses is a little too awkward which I mean Pickleses I can't even pronounce it correctly as it's to awkward. Another example is Jones if it's possessive like the Pickles own the house then you just add an apostroaphe at the end like it what I changed it too.Babysmurfrocks (talk) 08:12, December 2, 2015 (UTC)

Detailed Info Needed

The detailed information should explain the house's exterior and the interior. For example, speaking of the roof, it is actually a flat roof while the so-called "mansard roof" is actually a sloped facade built around the top rooflines used for concealing ventilation.

We don't have to go into that much detail just for the homes, we should just label the basics of the interior and exterior like the bedrooms, bathrooms, etc along with the garage, backyard etc. If any younger ones come along and find this wiki they're not going to really care about what the roof is or how it is used for ventilation.

I also added detail about the other Pickleses' household (Drew's and Charlotte's), describing its exterior and how their house is a more common style than the other families' homes. FrancineFan3883 (talk) 08:01, December 2, 2015 (UTC)
