This shows the theme because all of the family is watching TV and making loud, loud noises. I know this because Humphrey states that it was LOUD-LOUD-LOUD. And with all this noise going on in the day, its impossible to sleep, since he is nocturnal
This shows how too much TV affects the family because Humphrey says that Anthony is extra-loud in class. I know this because Humphrey states that Mrs. Brisbane calls him lower-your-voice-A.J. I understand why he speaks extra-loud, since the TV is always blaring with noises, making it loud.
The characters change by spending time together as a family and playing outside. I know this because in the story, it says that they play "Crazy Eights" and another game called "Pig". It also shows them playing outside.
