** Marina is a subversion, as her father is mentioned once.
* ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'': Ginger's dad is divorced. And he's been making promises to Ginger and letting her down for years. By the end of the series, he's only visited Ginger a few times, and most of those meetings weren't exactly Kodak moments.

** Toph is an almost forced-inversion example. Her parents are present, but sheltered and narrow in their thinking. They're also so inattentive of their "tiny, helpless fragile" child that they leave the overwhelming majority of her caretaking to servants. Because of this, Toph is able to secretly become a master [[ElementalPowers Earthbender]] under their noses. And upon finding out, instead of being impressed, Mr. Bei Fong tightens the yoke of parental overprotectiveness, which results in Toph abandoning her parents and running away with Aang's group. The trope would later apply to her own daughters, both of whom state that neither of them knew who their fathers were, only that they were sired by two different men.

* Based on the evidence available, certainly true for Treelo on ''Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse'', and almost certainly true for all of the other main kid characters on the show. Bear seems to be raising them all and in one episode remembers baby Treelo holding his hand while learning to walk. It is never, ever talked about, though.
