Joe family

Fulgencio Joseph "Joe" Pritchett is the son of Jay and Gloria Pritchett. He was born in the episode "Party Crasher", just after midnight on his half-brother Manny's 14th birthday. While his first name is Fulgencio, Jay says they will never call him by that name as it was only a way to appease Gloria's mother, and instead call him by his middle name Joseph/Joe. Joe currently goes to school at a pre-school called The Learnin' Barn.

Personality

Joe seems to be a very excited and bubbly but calm toddler at times and can be unintentionally violent as seen in "Summer Lovin" when he offscreen does something assumingly violent to a chicken. Joe can sometimes get his mother into trouble for example in "The Day Alex Left For College" when he tells Mitchell and Cameron she was the one that shot Jay's foot.

In "A Tale of Three Cities" after giving Jay some things he stole from a hotel, Joe reveals that he likes stealing because "it makes his heart go fast".

Mishaps With / Involving Joe

In "Larry's Wife", Gloria summons the priest believing that there is evil in Joe. The priest does a blessing on Joe but leaves when Joe pick-pockets the priest's wallet. Gloria returns the wallet and apologizes.

In "Spring-a-Ding-Fling", he begins to walk. Lily blames breaking Gloria's phone on him by saying he can walk for her. She luckily gets away with it until Joe's shoes magically get on the wrong feet.

In "And One to Grow On", it's Joe's birthday and Jay wants to reuse birthday decorations from Manny's birthday party the day before but Gloria refuses.

In "Queer Eyes, Full Hearts", Manny's Spanish teacher teaches Joe to swim.

In "The Big Guns", Jay tries to potty-train Joe despite Gloria's warnings that Joe must be ready on his own and Jay must not put stress on him. The real reason Jay wants to train Joe is that every time he goes to the store to buy diapers, people think that the diapers are for him. After a long time, just when Jay is ready to give up, Joe manages to use the potty, but Jay picks him up before he's finished which results in Joe peeing on Jay.

In "Rash Decisions", Joe has a problem and Gloria starts thinking he's allergic to Stella, but it turns out to be Gloria's face balm.

In "Integrity", Joe spends his time with Mitchell, Cameron, and Lily at their house while Phil and Jay get him a princess castle and causes all sorts of trouble, including: breaking a green bowl, flushing Cameron's keys down the toilet, and covering the Vanderkhoff with purple paint. When he sees his castle, he runs into it, sneezes, and the castle breaks (which was Phil's fault) and Jay blames this on Joe, but Gloria doubts that a 2-year-old can destroy a whole house in one second. The house is rebuilt and repainted and changed from a princess castle to a boy castle, being completely fixed, having random colors of paint and a pirate ship flag.

In "Summer Lovin", Joe goes with his parents and half-brother to look at preschools. At one of the preschools he ends up doing something (implied to be something brutal) to a chicken off-screen.

In "The Day Alex Left for College", Joe reveals to Mitchell that Gloria shot Jay in the foot (deliberately).

Jay says that he had to spend some time with Tommy and his parents at the feelings table. Jay tells Gloria he doesn't think that Joe cared he was there. However Joe tells Jay that he wants him back as they all now call Tommy "Big Ears" a nickname Jay called him during the fight.

Trivia

  • Joe was first portrayed by twin girls Rebecca and Sierra Mark in Season 4. For Season 5 Rebecca and Sierra Mark were replaced by Pierce Wallace. For Season 7, Pierce Wallace was replaced by Jeremy Maguire beacause they wanted to age the actor up, as they needed someone who could walk, talk and speak their lines.
  • Joe's birthday is just after his half-brother Manny's birthday.
  • His first word is 'Jay' ("And One to Grow On").
  • He appears to be allergic to face balm as his mother's gave him rashes ("Rash Decisions").
  • Joe appears to have inherited his mother's penchant/comfort with killing animals, as shown in "Summer Lovin'" when he goes after and catches a chicken and is implied to have killed it (or at least done something brutal) as Gloria immediately offers to pay for the chicken.
