TV Series

Season 1

Season 7

Season 8


  • Mikey, despite appearing in Season 1, did not have his name confirmed until Season 8.
  • Mikey was one of a few characters to be portrayed by multiple actors. He was portrayed by an unidentified child in Season 1 and Wyatt Ralff in Season 8.
  • With Greg's death in The Lost And The Plunderers, Mikey is now the last remaining member of his family.
  • Mikey is adopted by Scott and Alice. In Old Man Dwight, he is the biological son of Scott and Alice.
    • This change was due to the fact that the writers decided to use the preexisting Mikey character rather than create a new character with that name because they didn't want two kids with the exact same name on the main cast.
