While he enjoys his intelligence, he despises having to take classes for gifted childrenwho are mocked by the other students who call them "Krelboynes".
Jane Kaczmarek is Malcolm's overbearing, authoritarian mother, Lois, and Bryan Cranston plays his immature but loving father, Hal.
Christopher Kennedy Masterson plays eldest brother Francis, a former rebel who, in earlier episodes, was in military school, but eventually marries and settles into a steady job. Justin Berfield is Malcolm's dimwitted older brother Reese, a cruel bully who tortures Malcolm at home, even while he defends him at school. Younger brother Dewey, bitter about his ruined childhood, smart, and musically talented, is portrayed by Erik Per Sullivan.
In earlier episodes the show's focus was on Malcolm, but as the series progressed, it explored all six members of the family more. A fifth son, Jamie, was introduced as a baby at the end of Season 4.

The show's Does My Offbeat Look Big In This? - Call Me Malcolm - Check Sells seasons centered on Malcolm dealing with the rigors of being an intellectual adolescent and enduring the eccentricities of his family life. Later seasons expanded the show's scope by exploring the family's interactions with their extended family, friends and colleagues in more depth, including Lois' tyrannical mother Cloris Leachman ; Craig Feldspar, Lois' coworker at the Lucky Aide drugstore; Malcolm's disabled friend Stevie Kenarban, and Stevie's dad Abe; as well as a series of continuing subplots detailing Francis' misadventures at the military college, from which he subsequently runs away to work in an Alaskan logging camp, before finally landing a job on a dude ranch run by an eccentric German couple.
Malcolm routinely broke the fourth wall by both narrating in voice-over and talking directly to the viewer on camera. The distinctive look and sound of the series relied heavily on elaborate post-production, including fast-cut editing, sound effects and musical inserts, the extensive use of locations, and unusual camera styles, compositions and effects e.
Another distinctive aspect of the show is that the cold open of every episode is unrelated to the main story. Exceptions were episodes which were the conclusions of "two-parters"; each part two episode opened with a recap of its part one episode. The family's surname was never mentioned directly on the series. Linwood Boomer's script for the pilot episode originally included the surname Wilkerson, but it was later removed because he did not want to put "any specific ethnic label on the characters".
The surname appeared in early drafts of promotional material and also on Francis' uniform in the pilot. In the last episode of the series, Francis drops his ID badge from work, which lists his name as "Francis Nolastname". Also in the last episode, the principal announces Malcolm as the speaker, clearly mouthing "Nolastname" as his voice is drowned out by microphone feedback. A publicist for Fox said that "officially the Bye Baby (Ava Club Mix) - Ava & Stone - Bye Baby (Remix) last name should be considered a mystery".
The opening title features short clips from cult films or television shows, edited together with clips from the pilot and early episodes of the show, set to the song "Boss of Me" by They Might Be Giants.

Though palm trees and desert scenery are seen in shots of the local region and town throughout the show, indicating a location in the Western United States, it is never revealed which state the show is set in except for Francis' whereabouts in early seasons, such as his military school in Alabama and his job in Alaska.
