* "In an old house in Paris, all covered in vines, lived twelve little girls, in two straight lines. The smallest one was ''{{Madeline}}''". Though it's technically a boarding school, Madeline herself is an orphan (in the [[Film/{{Madeline}} live-action movie]], anyway[[note]]In the original books, she at least has a father, as revealed in the very first one.[[/note]]) and the other kids' parents never really figure into the plot. %%If this is wrong and they do indeed, please take the "Repair, Don't Respond" route and remove that line.

* While it was pretty dickish of Franchise/{{Superman}} to put his cousin ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} in an orphanage after her arrival in ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'', at least he cared enough to make sure it was a really nice one.
* For Franchise/{{Superman}} himself, the Smallville Orphanage (where the Kents left him at, before returning to formally adopt him) was usually also shown as such.

* In JohnCWright's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfChaos'', the boarding school straddles the line between this and OrphanageOfFear. On the one hand, they are treated affectionately and given an excellent education. On the other hand, the teachers are under orders to kill them if they start remembering things.

** Of course, this being Futurama, it's more of a HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood that Leela has fond memories of in a manner similar to Phoebe (and some other folks) in ''{{Friends}},'' complete with much of the humor coming from her ''talking'' of it as if it were great fun. For ''one'' example of what it's really like, they didn't have any books... because they ate them to avoid starvation since they didn't have any food. Leela also remembers genuinely fondly of how the warden used to tell her "You're worthless and no one will ever love you!"

** Before ''Awakening'' took place, there was the orphanage in [[FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]] where Patty and Faval (or their [[ExPy expies]] Daisy and Asaello) used to live. Either Patty or Daisy will become a thief to help feeding the kids, while either Faval or Asaello will be hired by the enemy nobleman Bloome under the promise of getting enough money to sustain it. Both can be recruited into the group.

Mind you, employee screening isn't perfect, and sometimes a ChildHater will somehow get on the staff and abuse the orphans until he can be exposed. Also, money is generally in short supply, so the heroes will often have to raise a bundle of cash to keep the place running or avoid having it foreclosed on by a DastardlyWhiplash land developer. Expect the heroes of the story to try SavingTheOrphanage through [[ZanyScheme whatever wacky means necessary.]]

* ''Series/TheATeam'': Face was raised in an orphanage after losing his mother at a young age. (His father had already disappeared.) While he was a bit upset that he never had a real family growing up, every time he reminisces about the orphanage it's a happy memory. We even get to meet a couple of the nuns who raised him in one episode and the kids under their care look fine.
