Yes, they are made-up. I'd like to say they were derived from Phineas and Ferb, but I'm not so sure. Ana is crying because people around her bully her, saying that her father left their family, when in reality he died...or something like that. The boy here, Sparky (his nickname, his real name is Xerxes....I think)is the light in the family. He's always trying to find ways to cheer up everyone around him.
