* All the sprogs in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' novels. It's set in a CloseKnitCommunity, so there's always safety and rescue within call sometimes too much so for the kids, who know they CantGetAwayWithNuthin without having their parents told or, worse, having the Duke told (he lectures), the Rector told (he makes them feel ashamed with one look), or, worst, having Old Miss Hart at the sweet shop told (she'll ban you for a week).

* ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'': Lilo is about 6 years old and yet she and Stitch run about Hawaii finding Stitch's cousins with little older supervision. Mertle, who says she's the best hula dancer in the seven year old division in ''Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch,'' also seems to have a bit more freedom than most children as she travels with her friends. It is kind of justified that Lilo's allowed some freedom after Stitch joins the Ohana, though. Do you want to imagine what would happen to a normal person who tried to harm or kidnap the girl while her super-strong and rather protective alien "dog" was there? She was also being left alone like this in the [[Disney/LiloAndStitch original movie]] even before Stitch came into the picture. It explains a lot about why Social Services had their eye on Nani.

* Done in the now-deleted ''[[Website/{{GoAnimate}} Caillou Gets Grounded: The Movie]]'', which involves WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}} (a ''four year old''), [[WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer Dora]] ('''ANOTHER''' four year old), and [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney the Dinosaur]] going to '''LAS VEGAS''' without their parents, and to top it all off, Caillou uses ''his own [[HairTriggerTemper da]][[AbusiveParents d's]] credit card''. You can guess [[YouAreGrounded what the outcome was]]. The movie [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes no longer exists on [=YouTube=], however, so the only way to watch it is to manually make a duplicate]].

** Averted in the season 27 episode "Orange Is The New Yellow" Marge gets arrested because she let Bart go to the park by himself. Marge mentions in court that when she was a kid she was allowed to be alone outside all day, which gets her mother retroactively arrested.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' usually plays this straight as the eight and ten year old Simpson kids walk around town without issue. However in the season 27 episode "Orange Is The New Yellow" Marge gets arrested because she let Bart go to the park by himself. Marge mentions in court that when she was a kid she was allowed to be alone outside all day, which gets her mother retroactively arrested.

* ''WesternAnimation/WordParty'' - Well, they do ask you if they can go outside, but then you have no control over where they go once you say yes.

* ''WesternAnimation/WordParty'' technically only has four babies with no adults in sight. [[FridgeBrilliance Unless you count in the narrator]].

** In the episode "[[Recap/SouthParkS6E11ChildAbductionIsNotFunny Child Abduction is Not Funny]]", this was done deliberately by the parents as their final solution to the child abduction crisis, as they have become too paranoid to even trust themselves to actually protect their children. The kids end up living with [[ItMakesSenseInContext the Mongolians that have been attacking the wall surronding the town]].

* Stewie Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': A 1-year-old who is able get his hands on the parts to construct superscientific devices and weapons and is frequently far from home, with little concern from Lois. Lack of concern from Peter is expected, though. However, he's still working on how to use the toilet. Stewie, that is.

** [[ComicBookTime No matter how many seasons pass]], Ash remains 10 years old. Apparently this is an appropriate age to be given an incredibly powerful monster to keep as a companion and travel around a world inhabited by monsters and crooks with only the company of other children near his age. This may be {{justified|Trope}} in that this is an alternate world where the societal beliefs are much different from our own. But considering that this is a world populated by dangerous monsters yet none of the adults seem too concerned for the children's safety, this trope still applies. Most of these children have god-like monsters at their beck and call, giving them enough power to utterly destroy the world if they had half a mind to do so. We must all hope that none of them ever get dumped or depressed. There is a Poke-Al Queda. [[GoldfishPoopGang They just suck.]] (Aside from ''Best Wishes!'' where they are much more dangerous.) Since all of society revolves around Pokemon and journeys are the norm, kids seem to have some knowledge about survival. WordOfGod is that, by this time, people their age are considered of age for journeys.
