I'm gonna start a whole new thread for this b/c I am supremely interesting in what everyone thinks. What is the structure of the Firefly clan in House of 1000 Corpses????

Here's my thoughts:

Okay, I think Grandpa is the patriarch and he fathered either Mother Firefly or Earl/The Professor. I think perhaps that he also sired Otis b/c Otis is clearly the head of the family. I feel like Otis is perhaps Baby's, Tiny's, and RJ's Uncle b/c of the way they all look up to him. Baby, Tiny, and RJ are the children of Mother Firefly and Earl (along with some of the kids that didn't make it and now reside in jars). Capt. Spaulding is a friend of the family. So, where does Dr. Satan fit in? Are they related to him at all? Opinions wanted.

I don't think Dr.Satan is related to them but I think he helped out earl by giving him that weird suit thing. Earl might have had a disease so Dr.Satan thought he might be able to help him out so in return Earl now helps out Dr.Satan.

Early on in the film, Cap. Spaulding mentions that Dr. Satan was trying to create a super-soldier. I think Earl was his first success.

The way I am seeing it is like this, We all know who grandpa Hugo is, Mother Firefly is mother to Baby, RJ, Tiny and I think Otis. I say that because I thought Baby said that her brother was upstairs meaning Otis. I think that Capn Spaulding is Mother Fireflys brother. The professor may fit in as the father?? Mother Firefly said that Daddy burned Tiny at one time, that is why he looks that way. And if i remember correctly that MF said that the father was dead, perhaps meaning a Zombie? I think in some twisted way Dr Satan is related but am not sure how, I would think that he may even be the father hence why the family would follow him into the insanity that is going on. But then that leaves the professor who may be the superhuman cration of Dr Satan.

Didn't mother Firefly say that Earl/The Professor was the one who burned Tiny, and he was his father?

Amen

I thought it was rather stupid myself. It's a ripoff of every other cheesy horror movie out there. I don't see anything special about this one. Whoopdee shit, Rob Zombie directed it, who cares?

I think Mother Firefly or Grandpa maybe was a patient of Dr. Satan before he was supposely hung and they decided to save him and let him do his work at their house. Just an idea I guess. Maybe Rob Zombie will explain it in the second one.

Okay... Warning, I am obsessed with the family.
Captain Spaulding is Baby's father. Otis knows the family because he and Baby were pulled into a cult lead by Dr. Satan(hence how Dr. Satan is involved). They were later kicked out and continued back to the Firefly family. It is never revealed whether Capt. Spaulding nor The Professor is Earl. There's a mistake. Mother Firefly implies that Earl lit Tiny on fire and now is dead. Where in 'Pussy Liquor' by Rob Zombie it is said, "Earl had a baby, Baby was her name." Rufus's father is never revealed. And Grampa Hugo's character is never explained in detail. But Captain Spaulding is or was at one time married to Mother Firefly. They're re not siblings.

Okay, then The Professor is Earl. So The Professor is Tiny's father. Captain Spaulding is Baby's father. Otis is NOT related to anyone, just Baby's friend.

Where dis you get the info on Spaulding being Baby's Dad, and Otis not being related? I would like citations just for curiosity sake.

Doesn't she call him Daddy in The Devil's Rejects at some point? I haven't watched it in ages so my memory is a bit foggy.

Dr Satan-father of The professor (mutant guy from ho1kc)
The Preofessor (called Earl by Mama in Ho1kc)- father of Otis

Captain Spaulding (called Earl in the song Pussy Liquor)- Father of Baby and Tiny
Mama Firefly- Mother of baby, Tiny and RJ (RJ's father isn't revealed but assumedly his name if Rufus.)
Grandpa I assume is Mama's father.
