* On ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb,'' no mention is ever made of Phineas and Candace's biological father, though their stepfather cheerfully takes up the role. (He is briefly mentioned in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbStarWars'', and Phineas is ''just about'' to say what happened to him when [[TheUnreveal the Death Star explodes]]. Although whatever he said [[AlternateContinuity wouldn't have been canon]] anyway.)

Compare and contrast this with MissingMom. Combine the two, and you get ParentalAbandonment. Sometimes, though, DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou. If Dad is dead, we may see a HappierHomeMovie. If he is simply too busy to be with his child, it's WhenYouComingHomeDad. See also TellMeAboutMyFather, SoProudOfYou, TurnOutLikeHisFather. Contrast WellDoneSonGuy.

** The closest thing to a parent figure in the Yagami household would be Hayate. There's Hayate's mysterious "[[HonoraryUncle uncle]]" who supported her financially when she was young, but he doesn't seem to have much of a role beyond that.
