Originally, it was not Bobby Newport, but Nick Newport Jr. who was the "Heir to the Newport Throne". (Nick Jr. appears in season 2 as the CEO of Sweetums.) However, in "Campaign Ad" and subsequent episodes, Bobby is described as the heir to the Newport throne, depicted as an only child--Nick Jr. is never mentioned. See more »
