Top 10 Abusive Parents in Cartoons

Cartoon parents that either emotionally or psyhically hurt their own kids. Overall cartoon parents that treat their kids like crap.

The Top Ten

Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

The most abusive father in Cartoon history... beats his kids, beats his wife and even threatens to kill his own family.

I have no clue why so many people like this character. - phillysports

Tell me again how is he one of the most popular characters on the show? - Randomator

Stephen Stotch - South Park

Butter's parents are just HORRIBLE.

At least we get to beat him up in the new game >:^D - TheMaelstromKing

Lois Griffin - Family Guy Lois Patrice Griffin is one of the main characters of the American animated television series Family Guy.

Her and peter should have their kids taken away from them. - DucklingWingLady2018

She's just as bad as Peter when it comes to abusing her own kids.

Stan Smith - American Dad Stanford Leonard "Stan" Smith is the main protagonist of the adult animated sitcom American Dad!. He is voiced by the series' co-creator and executive producer, Seth MacFarlane.

He's funnier then Peter but still just as abusive.

Mr. Turner - Fairly Odd Parents

Oof my dad acts like him - Manlypants

When his son gets nearly tortured by Vicky he doesn't care.

Yeah. Don't even get me started on the episode "Vicky Gets Fired". Ugh... how he and Mrs. Turner act in that episode was insufferable! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Timmy's parents are overly stupid - Phillip873

I swear I don't want a dad like him - Neonco31

Bob Pataki - Hey Arnold

What's sad is that most of the parents displayed are just like cartoon and their abuse is humor. But Bob's abuse is so realistic it's sad - Manlypants

Doesn't acklowedge his daughter's existence and doesn't even give enough of a damn to care about her.

Linda Stotch - South Park

Just as bad as Butter's father...

Ozai - Avatar the Last Airbender

I agree that he should be at the top of this list, especially because of what he did to his son, who sympathize with due to having a dad who abused me a lot.

He should be higher most of the parents are tormenting but Ozai tried to kill Zuko

He even tried to KILL his own son..

Eustace - Courage the Cowardly Dog Eustace Bagge is a fictional character from the Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Muriel treats courage way better than Eustace

He should have his dog taken away from him because he is not even fit to have a pet, since he's very abusive towards animals.

I wanna kill this prick for callin' Courage stupid.

He's technically more of a pet owner rather than a parent. Doesn't mean he's not an abusive one at that. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Mrs. Turner - The Fairly Oddparents

Like Timmy's father completely oblivious and blind to the fact that Vicky is a horrible person.

The Contenders

The High Priestess - Samurai Jack

I'd say if Ozai from Avatar: The Last Airbender were to take the title of King of Bad Parents, then I'd say the High Priestess from Samurai Jack deserves the title of Queen of Bad Parents. While some of these parents on this list have actually at least shown ONE moment of either love or remorse at one point, The High Priestess is probably one of, if not, arguably the only mother on this list to have never shown any love for Ashi and her sisters. There was literally only one scene where she affectionately referred to Ashi as "my sweet Ashi", but even so, it wasn't a genuine moment of parental love since it was followed by a relentless beating from one of the female cultists. Simply put, The High Priestess is a being devoid of any compassion or love for her daughters and could care less about her offspring and more about her devotion to Aku. Not to mention she even tried to kill Ashi and at one point tried to manipulate her emotionally by reminding her of her sisters' deaths. ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks
