Trivia

The last name of the family has only three times been revealed on the show. It is Wilkerson, as revealed in the pilot as the name tag Francis wears on his school uniform. There was also a joke that appeared in the original pilot script. In that script, Malcolm was walking to school when a neighborhood kid came running up shouting, "Malcolm, Malcolm, Malcolm. I was talking to my parents last night - I was listening to them talk, and what's your last name?" "Wilkerson, why?" Malcolm replied. "Oh. Who are the Pariahs?" said the other kid. The joke was eventually cut, and the show's writers subsequently decided never to reveal the family's last name, but it would seem they forgot about Francis's name tag. In the company picnic episode, Hal also refers to them as 'the Wilkersons'. Jennette McCurdy (Daisy Wilkerson [Dewey]) was credited as Wilkerson revealing the last name of the family was Wilkerson.

Goofs

When Lois and Reese are seen in the store, Lois gives Reese a pile of clothes to try on. Reese complains that she gave him a pink shirt and he does not wear pink. The shirt disappears and reappears in the pile between shots. Then, when she says she will get him a different one, she takes a red shirt off the pile, and Reese is still seen holding the pink one.
