Diane and Jack are the Johnson family's twins, 8 years old in the first episode and now currently 12. Young Jack is more of the sensitive type and idolizes his dad. He is quick to give his father a compliment, even if it does come out a little awkward.
Jack is correctly labeled as “innocent” in the series. He is sweet, kind, naive, and soft. However, he is easily manipulated by Diane, Junior, though the latter is as easily manipulated as him. Sometimes he acts silly, if not outright stupid. He comes up with ideas that are nearly impossible to carry out and lacks the typical intelligence for a boy his age. He is not very smart, in fact usually gets all D’s on tests and report cards. It takes him a lot of time to understand simple things, and calls his mistakes cute. But he prides himself on his dancing. His nickname, “Party Time”, a play on his great ability at dancing, gives him some self-confidence.
