    I haven't seen many episodes, but it would interest me if Norb cared more about dag. Please tell me an episode where he is at the least worried about him.

    He does care about him, but the only episodes I can think of off the top of my head are "Lumberjack's Delight" and "Van-Tastic Voyage".

    Haven't you seen the episode? Neither have I, but I saw a scene from it and it turns out Daggett fakes his death and Norbert is upset.

    Yes he does, but it's a natural brother relationship, fight fight fight, but love even more.

    Norb didn't seem to care in Das Spoot.

    "...but I wouldn't be able to live with myself. Well, I would but there'd be too many questions."

    He's probably just joking to himself, all part of the love-hate relationship.

    This may not be at all relevent on a board for a kid's show, but another example of this sort of thing is "Kenny vs. Spenny". The guys aren't brothers, but they also have a love-hate relationship. Despite being particularly cruel to each other on a regular basis, even insulting each other and enjoying each others pain. However, in the "Who's the better boxer" competition, the very cruel (and sometimes evil) one forfeited at the end because he did not want to seriously injure his friend.

    I think he cares about him, but Daggett annoys Norbert so much that he has trouble showing his love!

    Do you have any siblings, Akiyalover? Specifically a twin brother?

    Well, I do, and I can tell you right now that there has been no brother relationship on TV EVER(!) that is as accurate as TAB. Granted, I am a girl and not a boy, but me and my brother have the same relationship as Norb and Dag (with me being in the Dag position, of course). We fight insanely, but we are each others best friends and would do anything for each other if the moment called for it -- but try getting either of us to admit that to each other!

    If you notice, the show is often subtle with how they show how much the brothers care about each other. Often, there will be a threat on one of them, the other will freak out and physically remove his brother from the danger, but there will be no attention is brought to it. I feel that the writers approached the whole subject with a "that's just the way it is" vibe. You watch out for your brother, and that's that. If they did focus on that too much, the show would lose a lot of it's realism (never thought I'd use that word to describe TAB)and a lot of it's humor. So, in conclusion, Norb loves Dag as much as Dag loves him.

    He does kinda worry about Dag in Slap Happy, and Oh_Snappish is right about one thing, Daggett annoys Norbert so much that he has trouble showing his love!

    It's true...In the episode "I Dare You!" when Norb and Dagg were dared to chew through the log of death ,Norb told Dagg that he didn't want to see him get hurt. Norb and Dagg fought over protecting eachother from bitting through the log of death.

    Dag cares for Norb than Norb does for Dag. I'll admit that he worries for him from time to time, but half of that time is focused on Norb as being the manipulator over his younger brother. I'm sure that they both share love and affection for the other, but I feel that Dag shows a little more. They fight, they compete and they act like immature kids but it's pretty evident that Dag carries most of the weight in their relationship. One thing that I do find enjoyable about this show however is how their relationship is portrayed. They may argue and get on each other's nerves, but this show shows a great deal of love and companionship between the two: They're brothers, they love each other and they look out for one another just to make sure the other's okay, and this element of creativity is no longer portrayed in entertainment,
