* Most fathers in animated sitcoms fulfill a lot of these requirements. Examples include [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]], [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Randy Marsh]], and [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]]. All three are depicted as immature, overactive and more wild than their kids. [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill]] is a notable aversion, however.

The term "mid-life" crisis was first coined by psychoanalyst Elliott Jacques in 1965 to describe a period of major self-doubt felt by some individuals of middle age as the result of the passing of their youth. Symptoms may include depression, feelings of remorse and searching for some undefined dream or goal. It can affect both sexes, although not all psychologists accept it even exists and it doesn't seem to be present in all cultures. Also, even in cultures where such a thing ''does'' tend to exist, it usually only affects about 10% of middle aged adults. It has also been theorized that a mid-life crisis may be triggered by a man's wife approaching menopause age, as the mid-life crisis does not happen with men who are married to women significantly younger than themselves.

* "Middle Age Crazy" by Music/JerryLeeLewis.
-->But today he's forty years old going on twenty\\
And he hears of sordid affairs\\
And he ain't had any\\
And the young thing beside him\\
He knows she understands\\
That he's middle aged crazy\\
Trying to prove he still can
