* One episode of ''KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness'' was about Po the panda befriending a young snow leopard cub named Peng, who want to be a famous kung fu master like Po. At the end of the episode, Peng tells Po that he is actually the nephew of [[spoiler: Tai Lung]], causing the panda to freak out.

* ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'' has the Vaeo family with Vince, his daughter Cypress, and his nephews/ her cousins, Nathaniel and Damien. It's been heavily implied so far that the [[NoodleIncident Vuelos Incedent]] killed off Cypress's mother and Nathaniel and Damien's real parents.

* Mr. Chan from TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan has ten children. No mention of their mother was ever made in the series.
* In the first few ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' games, upgrading Tom Nook's store to the highest level introduces Timmy and Tommy, twin assistants whose jobs mainly seem to be following you around when you're on the second floor. (In ''New Leaf'', they've inherited the general store for themselves, while Tom Nook runs a housing shop.) Tom Nook says that Timmy and Tommy are his nephews, although lazy-type and jock-type villagers in ''New Leaf'' seem to believe that he rescued them from street life.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' featured elderly Slappy Squirrel, who lived with her young nephew, Skippy. How he came to live with her is never explained; this is probably intentional, considering the number of other cartoon tropes the show satirized.
** One (more dramatic than usual) episode, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo Clock" actually brought this up: after Slappy goes crazy from overexposure to bad daytime TV and gets put in a home, the local Child Welfare agency actually takes Skippy from his aunt when they can't locate his parents.
** [[WordOfGod Sherri Stoner]] recently answered this question ([[CrowningMomentOfFunny while in character]]). Skippy's parents are apparently on sabbatical and send Slappy an alimony check every month.
* Then there's WesternAnimation/AugieDoggieAndDoggieDaddy. No mother in sight or ever mentioned.
* The [[MyLittlePony Baby Ponies]] are an example as according to [[AllThereInTheManual one of the comics]], Majesty has a magic mirror that produces a baby pony based on whichever pony was looking in it at the time.
** In the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipisMagic new series]] it's pretty much averted, since parents have shown up. Though we still haven't seen Applejack, Big Macintosh, and Applebloom's parents yet, just their granny and a lot of cousins. WordOfGod says she'd like to say the Apple-parents are dead but since Hasbro would never let that fly, it's up in the air for now.
*** And for a full-on subversion, a pair of minor characters actually had twins. The mother never appeared as pregnant onscreen, but their introduction was the episode's cold open, which took place in the maternity ward with the proud father looking disheveled (and giving an explanation of his childrens' anomalous traits which suggests that the twins are throwbacks to the ''in-laws'' of their ancestors).
*** Oddly, though, this seems to apply to Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, the rulers of the kingdom; at the end of the first season, we were introduced to [[PrinceCharmless Prince Blueblood]], previously established as Celestia's nephew, and in the second season finale, Twilight Sparkle's brother married Celestia and Luna's niece, Princess Cadence. (However, Blueblood was only ever called Celestia's nephew once on-screen and never in the episode he ''actually'' appeared in, and Cadence was only ever called Celestia's niece in marketing - ''never'' in the show proper.) Fanon is largely up in the air as to how such blood ties to an effective PhysicalGod are supposed to work. Although WordOfGod says that Blueblood is only very, ''very'' distantly related to Celestia, hence why he's not an Alicorn.
*** The chapter book ''Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell'' gives an origin of sorts for Cadance; [[spoiler: she was an orphan pegasus, who, after saving her Earth pony village from an evil sorceress, was transformed into an alicorn and princess by Celestia, who then adopted her as her "niece"]]. However, the canonical status of this book is in question, so take that with a grain of salt.
** Also averted in ''My Little Pony Tales'' way back in 1992, where all ponies from main cast had parents (although Patch was adopted)
* In ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'', Rancid Rabbit had a convenient niece who was even ''named'' after him as Rancy.
** The episode "Back to School" features the Greasers' nephews, Biff, Squeak and Bartholomew. (The last one was actually smarter than his uncle Lube.)
** ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' actually used this trope a lot - the episode "Harasslin' Match" features Winslow's nephews, Brat and Runt.



* [[Series/TheMuppetShow Kermit the Frog]] sometimes had a nephew called Robin to look after. When Robin (as a tadpole) is introduced to ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', there's a very brief mention of his mother, Kermit's sister. She doesn't get a name or anything, but she exists.
** In the movie ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'', Robin plays Tiny Tim, while Kermit plays Bob Cratchit. So in this story, Robin is Kermit's son - via ''Miss Piggy''.
** In ''Series/MuppetsTonight'', Miss Piggy acquired two nephews Andy and Randy Pig.

* [[Series/TheMuppetShow Kermit ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' has a few minor instances:
** The instruction booklet of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' (in
the Frog]] sometimes words of [[SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong Cranky Kong]]) describes Diddy as "Donkey's little nephew wannabe." Given that they're different species (Donkey's a gorilla and Diddy's a monkey), the likelihood of them actually being related is extremely small; however, the Kong family itself spans diverse species, indicating that one needs only be a primate to be called a Kong. The quote itself seems to derive from either a writer on the Rare Scribes website (who postulated that Diddy was DK's nephew), or DK's in-game data in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' (although it should be mentioned that this was added to the English localization and wasn't in the Japanese version, suggesting this was never Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s intention).
** [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Cranky_Kong#Identity_Confusion Cranky Kong has been inconsistently identified as the father or the grandfather of the modern, tie-wearing DK.]] There is a Donkey Kong Jr. who rarely makes cameos, but presuming the grandfather/grandson relationship is correct, it means the middle generation just vanished in the ''Donkey Kong Country'' universe where there is no explicit "DK Jr."
* Uncle Jesse on ''DukesOfHazzard'' goes the same way as "Series/FamilyAffair". In addition, the whole extended Duke family seems to be made up almost entirely of cousins.
** Nope, sorry, not gonna say it. ''Way'' TooEasy.
* Fat Freddy's Cat from Gilbert Shelton's ''ComicBook/TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers'' has three nephews who finish each other's sentences in the time-honored manner. They actually ask him why so many cartoon characters have nephews and nieces. His answer is pretty much the same as the one on this page, at which they ask, "So are you saying that Huey Dewey and Louie are the illegitimate sons of Donald and Daisy Duck?"
* In ''Series/FamilyAffair'', Uncle Bill, a bachelor, acquired his nieces, Cissy and Buffy, and nephew Jodie after his brother and sister-in-law died in a car crash.
* In the 1978 animated series ''Fangface,'' teenager Sherman "Fangs" Fangsworth transformed into a werewolf every time he saw the moon (or anything remotely resembling the moon). Although this was supposed to be due to a curse that caused a werewolf to be born into his family every 400 years, the next season, Sherman's nephew "Baby Fangs" was introduced who also turned into a werewolf. (One of the episodes in the first season did mention Sherman
had an uncle but nothing was ever clear about Baby Fang's origins.)
* The ''Series/HorribleHistories'' mascot, [[BilingualBonus Rattus Rattus]], has
a nephew called Robin Scrappus who he occasionally has to look after. When Robin (as a tadpole) is introduced to ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', there's a very brief mention of his mother, Kermit's sister. She doesn't get a name or anything, but she exists.
** In the movie ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'', Robin plays Tiny Tim, while Kermit plays Bob Cratchit. So in this story, Robin is Kermit's son - via ''Miss Piggy''.

after.



* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' shows a multi-generational example of this; the title character has both an Uncle and a niece he lives with. Jade's parents are referred to a few times, however; in the first episode, they drop her off with Jackie and are rarely seen thereafter. In a TimeTravel episode, Jade goes back in time and meets Jackie as a child, who tells her he has been sent to the United States by his parents to live with Uncle. In another episode Jade's parents actully appear and refer to Uncle as Uncle, resulting in Jade being utterly confused.
** The latter example is part of a running gag where Uncle is never referred to by any other name. His actual name is never revealed, and even people who are not related to him call him "Uncle."
*** Except for his friend from his acting days that called him "Chuckles".
* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/JamesBondJr'' is actually Bond's ''nephew''. Of course, this hasn't stopped rampant speculation that he's an illegitimate son (this is ''James Bond'' we're talking about here, so there are many opportunities for such children, Bond even impregnated Kissy Suzuki in Ian Fleming's Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice).
* One episode of ''KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness'' was about Po the panda befriending a young snow leopard cub named Peng, who want to be a famous kung fu master like Po.

* In an episode from the last season of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', Fuzzy Lumpkins went on a camping trip with his three nephews - Wuzzy, Buzzy, and Scuzzy.
* In ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', it was revealed in "Exit 9B" that [[spoiler:Garrett Bobby Ferguson has a son. It's unclear to whether the son is illegitimate, conceived before divorce, a clone, or a product of asexual reproduction.]]
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' lived with her spinster aunts, Hilda and Zelda. Her parents do show up at times (these roles are rather prone to TheOtherDarrin), but she doesn't live with them. Her mortal mother has a good excuse - if Sabrina claps eyes on her, she'll turn into a ball of wax. This actually happened, although this didn't impede her mother's ability to speak, or try to have a sense of humor about it. And she did get better. Sabrina just can't look at her anymore or it will happen again. Her father just doesn't seem to be around; he lives with his second wife (Sabrina's parents are divorced) and his stepson.

* The ''Series/HorribleHistories'' mascot, [[BilingualBonus Rattus Rattus]], has a nephew called Scrappus who he occasionally has to look after.
* Mr. Chan from TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan has ten children. No mention of their mother was ever made in the series.
* Then there's WesternAnimation/AugieDoggieAndDoggieDaddy. No mother in sight or ever mentioned.
* In ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', it was revealed in "Exit 9B" that [[spoiler:Garrett Bobby Ferguson has a son. It's unclear to whether the son is illegitimate, conceived before divorce, a clone, or a product of asexual reproduction.]]
* In the first few ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' games, upgrading Tom Nook's store to the highest level introduces Timmy and Tommy, twin assistants whose jobs mainly seem to be following you around when you're on the second floor. (In ''New Leaf'', they've inherited the general store for themselves, while Tom Nook runs a housing shop.) Tom Nook says that Timmy and Tommy are his nephews, although lazy-type and jock-type villagers in ''New Leaf'' seem to believe that he rescued them from street life.

** According to the ''HouseOfMouse'' episode "Clarabelle's Big Secret", [[Disney/TheAristocats Uncle Waldo]] is actually not only the uncle to Abagail and Amelia Gabble, but also a distant uncle to ''DonaldDuck''.

** Done in basically the same way on ''HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' with Potamus (hippopotomi obviously) and ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'' with The Eager Young Space Cadet (aka Porky Pig).

* FelixTheCat is a weird example. He had three kids named Inky, Dinky and Winky, and they inexplicably got [[RetCon retconned]] into his nephews to preserve this trope.

** The first Felix the Cat Cartoon [[note]]from 1919, which actually featured a precursor named Master Tom whose named was later changed to Felix[[/note]] had the character find out his girlfriend (or wife) is pregnant, which causes him to [[DrivenToSuicide commit suicide]]. No, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbX-BeSY_18 really]].

*** At least one sub-series show's Morty and Ferdie's mother: a conspicuously more humanoid mouse, who remains unnamed and is depicted as a soccer mom that enrols her sons in a soccer team to keep them out of mischief (and herself off-panel).

* Fat Freddy's Cat from Gilbert Shelton's ''Series/FreakBrothers'' has three nephews who finish each other's sentences in the time-honored manner. They actually ask him why so many cartoon characters have nephews and nieces. His answer is pretty much the same as the one on this page, at which they ask, "So are you saying that Huey Dewey and Louie are the illegitimate sons of Donald and Daisy Duck?"
