Janice grew up at The Culver City Housing Projects in Los Angeles, until age 11. Her parents, Felice and Harvey Karman, studied theatre and film at UCLA - where her father would bring home the cameras for the weekend to make movies with help from the kids in their row in the project. Due to her family being poor, her father always made sure they had season tickets to the music centre, where she saw movies such as Man of La Mancha, Oliver, Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, all the classics. When she was 16, she raised enough money to send herself to Europe for four months; visiting London, Paris and Amsterdam by herself. Being close with her family, she did this to see how she would respond without them to rely on. In her family, they were encouraged to challenge their fears. Janice took theatre, film and directing classes at UCLA Extension. She received a scholarship at the Strasberg Institute. She was terribly shy and self-conscious in front of people and thought acting would help...

Jeanette is the younger sister of Brittany, as revealed in "It's My Party;" her age in regards to Eleanor isn't specifically stated in the series. She takes on the last name Miller after being adopted by Miss Miller in Help Wanted: Mommy. Jeanette was born in Australia and can best be described as the "absent-minded professor" of the group. Gifted with extraordinary intelligence, she often is so caught up in contemplating the universe that she forgets the simple matters of life, such as not t...
Jeanette's age in regards to her sisters is never stated in the films. Despite not having a stated last name either, it is presumed to be Seville because of The Chipettes being taken in by Daveat the end of the second film. However, this naming would be controversial, as it would make her Simon's adoptive sister in addition to his love interest. Though her CGI version retains many of the traits she had in the 80s series, there are some notable differences. She has an insecure personality, reg...
Jeanette's age in regards to her sisters hasn't been stated in the series so far though she retains the last name Miller as stated in Jeanette's Secret Garden. Jeanette is initially shown to be very gullible (as in Jeanette Enchanted where she believed she could fly when Alvin blew cayenne pepper in her face) in her past, but has worked (mostly) past it. She retains her shy, insecure personality, though less pronounced as she works past it with the help of Alvin (My Sister The Weirdo). She is...

Jeanette isn't brave enough to stand up to Brittany (but she tried to stop Brittany's attempt at robbing Galaxina in Baby Mama Drama). Brittany pushes Jeanette around a lot and takes advantage of her, but deep down they love each other very much and are very loyal to each other. Brittany gets very defensive of Jeanette when someone else is mean to her, in most situations. Even when Brittany is rude to Jeanette, she is extremely loyal despite her behavior towards her, saying "You're my sister,...
Eleanor always stands up to Brittany when she tries to push Jeanette around, and always defends her when anyone says something negative. For example, refusing to help Brittany join a group that called Jeanette a nerd.
Jeanette and Alvin are friends. It's not uncommon for Alvin to stick up for Jeanette if someone is spreading lies or taking advantage of her, but there are still a few times Alvin uses her such as in My Fair Chipette. He has also shown moments where he becomes defensive of Jeanette as in Sisters when Brittany is ignoring her. He played Jeanette's boyfriend in Chip Tracy, but they are actors in this episode. When Jeanette lands the helicopter in the school on the day of the Music Mania, Alvin...
