* 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.

* WoodyWoodpecker also (at least in the late 1990's revival) had a nephew and niece named Knothead and Splinter, respectively. [[ThemeNaming Get it?]]
** They started off in the early 1950s comics as Woody's adopted wards rather than any kind of real relatives. The retcon took place when they made some cartoon appearances in the late 1950s.
*** It gets weirder; for the first two months of the comics appearances (''New Funnies'' 182 and 183, both 1952), both kids are boys. One simply changes gender without explanation in month three (''NF'' 184).

* 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.
* {{Popeye}} was sometimes seen with his nephews, Pipeye, Pupeye, Poopeye, Peepeye, although Sweet Pea arguably filled this role anyway.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' started out with an unusual solution to this trope: while Ben's and Gwen's parents were mentioned occasionally, ''every'' adult to appear on the show who was related to a child was a grandparent. (Eliminating the middle man, indeed.) The first depiction of a direct parent/child relationship occurred in the third season, and the trope was abandoned entirely in the fourth season.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'': Fred and Wilma have Pebbles and Wilma was even shown as being pregnant onscreen. Bamm-Bamm, on the other hand, was adopted.
* Max Goof, the son of Goofy, whose [[MissingMom lack of a mother]] was actually addressed a few times. Interestingly, he seems to have been [[GodCreatedCanonForeigner more or less accepted]] in the 'modern' (if not iconic) Disney canon.
** Goofy's wife (among other female... anthropomorphic dogs?) was shown and heard quite frequently in the old '50s cartoons, but as TheFaceless, probably because the animators of the time couldn't bring themselves to draw a sufficiently silly looking female face to match with the male characters.
* In ''{{WesternAnimation/MASK}}'', Matt Trakker has a son, Scott, with no sign of a mother. Although it's curiously never mentioned in the series, the comics, toyline and even the novelisations of cartoon episodes all identify Scott as being adopted.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': Filburt (male turtle) and Dr. Hutchinson (female cat) not only get married, but have several children together, all hatched from a giant egg (one looks inexplicably disturbingly like Heffer, who, uh, [[LamarckWasRight kept the egg warm]].)

* Phil Mendez's "Kissyfur" had a surprisingly well-written father-son relationship at its core. (Incidentally, the show was originally to be named "Bear Roots" and to this day nobody knows how Mendez was convinced "Kissyfur" would be a better title.)
** As I recall, the prime time special that preceded the ongoing series established that the mother died while performing in the circus the family originally belonged to. That was why the father decided escape with his son to the swamp.
* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck in his first episode adopted a daughter, Gosalyn. She's more than happy with the idea of crimefighting being a family business, too.

* 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.
* 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.
* The ''Series/HorribleHistories'' mascot, [[BilingualBonus Rattus Rattus]], has a nephew called Scrappus who he occasionally has to look after.
* [[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/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.

* ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' has a few minor instances:
** The instruction booklet of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' (in the 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."

* ''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.

* {{Popeye}} was sometimes seen with his nephews, Pipeye, Pupeye, Poopeye, Peepeye, although Sweet Pea arguably filled this role anyway.
** The strangest thing about Poopeye (aside from his name; seriously, what self-respecting person would answer to that?) is that he and his brothers first appeared in an episode where Olive Oyl ''dreamed about'' what might happen if she married Popeye and they had children. That cartoon was "Wimmin is a Myskery", a Fleischer short that was remade by Famous Studios as "Bride and Gloom" fourteen years later, well after the nephews had become regulars.
** As the series wore on into the 1950s, the number of nephews dropped to three, and then two. Clearly done in the name of animation economy, but it [[FridgeHorror has some unfortunate implications]].
** Also Popeye slightly subverted this by officially adopting Swee'Pea.
** In the theatrical shorts, Swee'Pea was usually portrayed as Olive's nephew. He's always been an orphan in the comics.
** Some 1960s TV shorts had Olive's bratty niece Diesel.
** Popeye would later gain a biological son, Junior, with Olive Oyl in an animated series from Creator/HannaBarbera.

This would make the idea of [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction sex between them]] {{squick}}y, if sex for ''them'' were anything like it is for humans. Considering that Roger's idea of adultery was ''literally'' a game of pattycake, this probably isn't the case. (This is a change from the book, where "pattycake" was not meant literally. On the other hand, Roger and Jessica's relationship was also nowhere near as close in the book, though they were married.)
** ''Film/CoolWorld'', which came four years after ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' and had a remarkably similar premise (at least insofar as the notion of toons existing in a world which humans can ostensibly reach) also explored the notion. Being much darker and more mature, they decided the answer was not to do something ridiculous for laughs, but to literally explore the idea of sex, namely between "doodles" (toons) and "noids" (humans). It's well known in Cool World (where apparently the only humans are Creator/BradPitt and, lately, the cartoonist who draws the Cool World comic, leaving a bit of FridgeLogic considering how widespread the knowledge is) that doodles should ''never'' bang noids, but no one is quite sure why. This turns out to be more than simple racism when it turns out is that what happens is the doodle ''becomes'' a noid, at the cost of reality starting to fall apart. After the doodle-cum-noid, flickering between human and toon, pushes Brad Pitt to his death, we get another bit of FridgeLogic to give us a happy ending: ''everyone'' (except, apparently, Brad Pitt's spider partner) knows that when a doodle bumps off a noid, they become a doodle, happy, healthy, and incidentally free for sex now that pregnancy is the only ramification of note.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' started out with an unusual solution to this trope: while Ben's and Gwen's parents were mentioned occasionally, ''every'' adult to appear on the show who was related to a child was a grandparent. (Eliminating the middle man, indeed.) The first depiction of a direct parent/child relationship occurred in the third season, and the trope was abandoned entirely in the fourth season.

* The whole "toons having sexual relations" idea was deconstructed in the movie ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', which portrayed toon marriage as something which could take place [[InterspeciesRomance between characters of different species]]. This would make the idea of [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction sex between them]] {{squick}}y, if sex for ''them'' were anything like it is for humans. Considering that Roger's idea of adultery was ''literally'' a game of pattycake, this probably isn't the case. (This is a change from the book, where "pattycake" was not meant literally. On the other hand, Roger and Jessica's relationship was also nowhere near as close in the book, though they were married.)
** ''Film/CoolWorld'', which came four years after ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' and had a remarkably similar premise (at least insofar as the notion of toons existing in a world which humans can ostensibly reach) also explored the notion. Being much darker and more mature, they decided the answer was not to do something ridiculous for laughs, but to literally explore the idea of sex, namely between "doodles" (toons) and "noids" (humans). It's well known in Cool World (where apparently the only humans are Creator/BradPitt and, lately, the cartoonist who draws the Cool World comic, leaving a bit of FridgeLogic considering how widespread the knowledge is) that doodles should ''never'' bang noids, but no one is quite sure why. This turns out to be more than simple racism when it turns out is that what happens is the doodle ''becomes'' a noid, at the cost of reality starting to fall apart. After the doodle-cum-noid, flickering between human and toon, pushes Brad Pitt to his death, we get another bit of FridgeLogic to give us a happy ending: ''everyone'' (except, apparently, Brad Pitt's spider partner) knows that when a doodle bumps off a noid, they become a doodle, happy, healthy, and incidentally free for sex now that pregnancy is the only ramification of note.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' started out with an unusual solution to this trope: while Ben's and Gwen's parents were mentioned occasionally, ''every'' adult to appear on the show who was related to a child was a grandparent. (Eliminating the middle man, indeed.) The first depiction of a direct parent/child relationship occurred in the third season, and the trope was abandoned entirely in the fourth season.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'': Fred and Wilma have Pebbles and Wilma was even shown as being pregnant onscreen. Bamm-Bamm, on the other hand, was adopted.
* Max Goof, the son of Goofy, whose [[MissingMom lack of a mother]] was actually addressed a few times. Interestingly, he seems to have been [[GodCreatedCanonForeigner more or less accepted]] in the 'modern' (if not iconic) Disney canon.
** Goofy's wife (among other female... anthropomorphic dogs?) was shown and heard quite frequently in the old '50s cartoons, but as TheFaceless, probably because the animators of the time couldn't bring themselves to draw a sufficiently silly looking female face to match with the male characters.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': Filburt (male turtle) and Dr. Hutchinson (female cat) not only get married, but have several children together, all hatched from a giant egg (one looks inexplicably disturbingly like Heffer, who, uh, [[LamarckWasRight kept the egg warm]].)
* Sylvester the Cat had a son, Sylvester Jr. Mrs. Sylvester is shown in only one 1960s cartoon, "Goldimouse and the Three Cats".
* The bulldog [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spike_%28Tom_and_Jerry%29 Spike]] from the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_and_Jerry_%28MGM%29 Tom and Jerry]]'' cartoons has a pup called Tyke, who featured in an extremely short lived spin-off ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spike_and_Tyke Spike and Tyke]]'', his wife however was never seen nor mentioned.
