|“||Good one Ellen.||”|
— Ellen's famous catchphrase
Outdoorsy free spirit with no kids
Ellen is portrayed by Beth Littleford.
Ellen Jennings is Avery's mother and Chloe's and Tyler's step-mother. She doesn't like dogs, sometimes does not like cats, and makes it known that she doesn't like Stan, but at the end of "The Parrot Trap", she and Stan get along. Her nickname is "Smellen" to other moms due to the medley of horrific odors in her car.One of Ellen's famous qoutes is good one ellen She can get hyper or very energetic as seen when she drank the "special energy drink". She tries to get involved with Avery's hobbies/activities and sometimes even tries living through Avery. For example, she was obsessed with the idea of Avery becoming a cheerleader, getting the opportunity of fitting in and realizing what it was like to be popular and be a cheerleader after missing out from not making the team as a kid. She got excited when saying "good night" to one of the girls with her replying with "good night ells!" It is also mentioned that she is prone to suggestion. If a condition with side effects is described, she starts to experience those effects.
Relationships with other characters
Bennett James is Ellen's husband. While he is a child psychologist, Ellen thinks he got his degree on the internet, and thinks he got it by lying, because his "Techniques" are more like lies. She always tries to attempt reading her husband's book(s), but she never understands them or can't see how any of his techniques are helpful or necessary.When Bennett and Ellen moved into the same house, it seemed as if their family traditions will both be expressed, but some went, but they managed to keep the peace. While at sometimes they disagree in some situations, they always know how to end it right. Bennett has revealed that he and Ellen speak with one voice, which is usually hers. They had met once before they got married, but could not recognize eachother due to the fact that they had different appearances. While Bennett was teaching Tyler to drive, Ellen was carrying Avery in a stroller. Stan eventually rips up a photograph of them in the park from the past.
Avery Jennings is Ellen's daughter. While you might think Ellen and Avery are alike, it doesn't seem so. While Ellen loves ponchos, pineapple, badmitten, and writing notes on grains of rice, Avery doesn't like those kind of things. Avery doesn't like the Jennings Christmas present tradition, without writing a list, while Ellen loves it so it could be a surpise. It is also revealed in Avery's First Breakup that Avery has never asked Ellen for anything (But she may have just been exagerrating). But even so if they aren't very alike to each other, they always love each other.
Ellen's Step-son,Bennett James biological son who she doesn't relate to at all, can be a real handful to her, but she tries to help him do his best, while highlighting his weak points. She, like the rest of the family, is mortified by Tyler's driving.
Ellen's step-daughter,bennet's biological daughter Chloe can be over the top! In the first episode, she ignores Chloe's claim that "Stan can talk!", but tries to savor her cuteness in The Fast and the Furriest. She was also against Chloe getting earrings. Ellen and Bennett often accidently leave her at some random place.
Ellen doesn't really like Stan because she is a cat person. She is the only person in the house who doesn't like him. She even tries to make him a outside dog in The Parrot Trap. Even though they don't really like each other they sometimes get along.
In Howloween, Stan learned from Ellen that she had a dog she loved very much when she was a young girl, but was crushed when the dog ran away. Her disdain towards dogs was because she didn't want to get close to another and re-experience that pain. So Stan thereafter made more effort to be nicer to Ellen, much to her joy.
