Top Ten Cartoon Characters with Abusive ParentsCartoonfan202 These are animated characters who get unfairly abused
The Top Ten
Ozai deserves to rot in hell for what he did to Zuko. And it's not because Zuko's my crush, it's because he treated him in a way no child deserves to be treated - TwilightKitsune
His father, Ozai, always favored Azula over him. He has also brutally scarred Zuko and tried to kill him multiple times. - Cartoonfan202
Ozai is the worst father in the history fathers. Attacking and attempting murder his own son, Zuko, more than once. - PeeledBanana
I feel so bad for him! His parents ground him for the littlest things, and they constantly yell at him! The worst part is when his parents sold him to Paris Hilton. - Cartoonfan202
If you watch Helga on the Couch, you'll see. Her parents constantly favor Olga over her, and always forget about Helga. They never packed her any lunches or walked her to school. Big Bob was abrasive, while Miriam is a lazy, forgetful alcoholic - Cartoonfan202
Helga has the worst parents. Her dad doesn't care about her at all, and her mom is never awake to pay attention to her.
Helga's parents are no better than Timmy Turner's parents! They pay more attention towards Olga than her and constantly neglected her when she was little. They are so mean! Big Bob is a neglectful and abrasive jerk while Miriam is a forgetful and alcoholic witch! When Helga had to walk all the way to preschool she was miserable and her parents payed no attention to her at all. They couldn't care less if she was picked on by hoodlums or gotten lost! Shame on those parents!
I bet it would be better if Helga ran away from home, was found and adopted by a more kinder and loving new family who would treat her as one of their own. At least Helga would be happier then.
Meg has been treated very poorly by her father; he slaps her, beats her, throws things at her, sits on her head and farts on her, and in a cutaway in "Peter's Daughter", he greets her by shooting her in the face at point blank range. She is also frequently belittled by her mother, Lois, calling Meg disgusting for having a normal womanly problem, and at one point even implied that Meg should commit suicide. - Cartoonfan202
If memory serves, she intentionally stayed in this abusive relationship to benefit her parents. I cannot think of a worse way the "Status Quo is God" trope was used. - alphadan12
As much as I hate Family Guy, I feel sorry for poor Meg... - Swampert02
Everyone talks about Peter's abuse towards Meg, but Lois is just as bad. She slides cruel remarks into conversations with her daughter that no mother should ever think of saying.
During the episode where Meg went off on her parents about their abuse, it was empowering in a sense. It was perfect because she described their horrific behavior immaculately.
Pacifica pretty much started out as a one-note spoiled brat. I'm pretty sure Mabel even calls her that in an episode. However, as we know more about her, we understand the reasons why she acts the way she does, and she transforms into a very sympathetic and surprisingly relatable character. - phillysports
Watch the episode Northwest Mansion Mystery. Her parents emotionally abuse her to an extent, and they only care about her looks and achievements instead of spending time with her. - Cartoonfan202
I hate her parents!
More like Abusive Owners. While Muriel is nice, Eustace is the opposite. He constantly abuses Courage such as calling him "stupid dog" in the intro. The worst was in the episode Perfect, where Eustace made Courage feel horrible for making one little mistake. - Cartoonfan202
Her mother is a good reason why she bullies the other foals in school, especially in the earlier seasons - Neonco31
Her mother, Spoiled Rich, is emotionally abusive towards her. She yells at DT for losing, raised her to be a bully, and cares about DT's social standing rather than DT herself. - Cartoonfan202
Screw Spoiled B***
His parents don't belive him when he says Vicky is evil expect at the end of channel chasers and Vicky you're fired. - BoyGenius234
His parents always neglect him. - Cartoonfan202
As soon as I saw this I thought of Desiigner's song lol - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Even though I hate Drawn Together, sometimes I feel bad for Clara, because her father constantly neglects her. He also had her strip for him once...that was awful. - Cartoonfan202
Watch Season 4 for proof. - Cartoonfan202
Her own mother treated her and her daughters like living weapons by putting them through rigorous and brutal training, showing no compassion or love for any of them. I felt quite sorry for how Ashi lived in fear of her own mother. You could probably tell how satisfied I was when Ashi finally killed her own mother to protect Jack. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Also, let's not forget that AKU of all people is her biological father. Given that he's evil incarnate, he obviously isn't going to treat daddy's little girl the way he should... - ModernSpongeBobSucks
He's adoptive father constantly abused him sometimes for no reason and is the reason why his face is all messed up. - egnomac
Sam's parents are the overall antithesis of their daughter, being a pair of super-optimistic socialites. Jeremy's side of the family inherited a large fortune from Izzy Manson, who invented a machine that twirled cellophane around deli toothpicks. Overall, the Manson family is very wealthy and are apt to express their wealth in lavish ways, such as turning their basement into a movie theater/bowling alley or hiring an entire medical staff for Sam who came down with a common cold. They possess an enormous disdain of Sam's nonconformity and constantly try to steer her away from it. The Mansons have a rivalry with the Fenton parents. Sam's fathers name is Jeremy Manson, and her mother is credited as Pam - ConorDooley
His parents constantly beat him and cuss him out. And this is supposed to be for KIDS! - Cartoonfan202
His parents (and siblings) treated him horribly and physically and emotionally abused him, explaining why he's such a jerk to everyone else.
