* Arthur Spooner in ''Series/KingOfQueens'' is an elderly ManChild on the outer edge of senility who drives [[TheDutifulSon daughter Carrie Heffernan]] to despair with a series of unreasonable demands. A psychologist unwisely advocates giving him what he wants as a sort of aversion therapy, in the hope that the continual demanding will burn itself out. Arthur then ploughs through a dozen or so expensive hobbies in the space of a month, beginning each in a state of high enthusiasm that inevitably burns itself out when the novelty is gone.
