* For those who view the ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movies as merely properties based on [[MerchandiseDriven toys]] and [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers an '80s cartoon]] that they are being dragged to by their kids, the casting of MeganFox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are this.

* Since ''Series/TheATeam'' was technically intended for children, [[HandsomeLech Face]] could be considered this. Well, any of the four A-Team members could be Parent Service for specific tastes, but Face was the most blatant, considering how ridiculously handsome and charming he was--in Season 3, the showrunners seemed determined to show off his nice, lean arms and legs as much as possible and even gave him his first ShirtlessScene in the Season Premiere. The team's two [[TheChick Chicks]], Amy and Tawnia, were definitely for the dads (''especially'' Tawnia, who was more outright sultry-looking). Face being Parent Service would explain why Bradley Cooper played him in the movie version.

** Alia and Zalaé in ''Toc Toc Toc''. As with ''LazyTown''[='=]s Stephanie above, the characters are preschool-aged children, but the parents only see the [[DawsonCasting adult]] actresses playing them, I can assure you.

* Has happened a couple of times on ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', mostly with Garnet as the subject: the most memorable examples include a scene in which the viewer follows [[MaleGaze Jamie's eyes]] as he watches Garnet sultrily stepping out of the ocean, as well as... well, pretty much all of Garnet's fusion dances. In this case, however, [[LGBTFanbase there's a good chance this isn't aimed towards the dads.]]

Romana I (Mary Tamm) was introduced with a lingering pan up of her in a [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/93f6af73722dee8e100ea6ad51bc5608/tumblr_moq3e0drV41svjdx5o10_r2_500.jpg stunning white dress and fur cape;]] she wore more practical outfits for other episodes, but even the most modest tended to emphasise her figure, lovely [[http://godardsletterboxes.files.wordpress.com/2009/12/250px-romana1.jpg skin tone]] and even had a [[http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/qE9hOaR6cdc/hqdefault.jpg cleavage window.]] Romana II (Lalla Ward), having a different body type, dressed differently, but no [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/staticarchive/ff67b2cd4c231da29a8dabd24f7fc63898d5c1f0.jpg less]] [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_ognmH3g7KYE/TLyGjsCYrII/AAAAAAAAAvg/yOT4RoM9Zzw/s1600/wardl10.jpg attractively.]]

*** In Minerva Mink's episode, the nerdy Wilford Wolf transforms into a gorgeous hunk of a werewolf who turns the tables on Minerva. Could just as easily be considered Parent Service.



** Later on there's both Hakoda and Ozai for a [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal double-dose of]] DILF.
** June. The black clad, [[WhipItGood whip-wielding]], pouty-lipped and stacked bounty hunter. Despite only appearing in one episode, she was [[EnsembleDarkhorse quite popular]], and got to make an appearance in the GrandFinale.
** Ty Lee in general counts for this but [[UpToEleven an extra helping of service]] during the episode "The Beach" where she wears an [[{{Stripperific}} extremely]] [[AbsoluteCleavage revealing]] bikini, and has [[{{Gainaxing}} matching]] JigglePhysics to accompany her "ample assets".
** Almost any major character not named Iroh functions as this sooner or later, for one demographic or another, with the FiveManBand wearing less and less clothing as the series progresses (including total nudity, though it was hardly sexual) and in more [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "should children be watching this?"]] situations (including an all-but-outright-stated ReadyForLovemaking scene and a ''mud wrestling fight''). Heck, even Iroh himself goes all beefcake when he was in prison.

* Shego and Mrs. Dr. Possible in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. And Kim herself, actually.
** There is an entire massive LesYay PeripheryDemographic around the series, pairing teenaged cheerleader Kim and older DarkActionGirl Shego.



** The villain Sedusa also appears in a couple of episodes, who, as her name implies, is something of a seductress.
* Post-timejump [=AndrAIa=] in 'WesternAnimation/ReBoot''. And it didn't help matters when she got {{Brainwashed}} and started calling Matrix "lover".

* Red, a character originally from ''WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood''. She appears in some ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' DirectToVideo films with this role. Particular mention to ''Tom and Jerry's Giant Adventure'' where she is a FairySexy with few butt shots.
* The old ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' series is absolutely '''LOADED''' with this, mostly provided by Sally and Bunnie. Why ''did'' you think they always stood in that weird bent-over posture?
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' is for kids? Yeah, right. That's why Raven runs around in [[LeotardOfPower the equivalent of a one-piece swimsuit]] all the time.
** Starfire's sexiness was toned down ''immensely'' for the cartoon ([[http://michaelmay.us/08blog/gallery/0612a_starfire.jpg Comic]]; [[http://images.absoluteanime.com/teen_titans/starfire.jpg Cartoon]]) but still managed to fall into this trope.
** A possible explanation for the above is the original rationale given by the creators; that they needed to cut features from the comic that would make animation too difficult. In the comic Raven's legs were visible but she also had a flapping dress on; this would be difficult to animate[[note]]especially so that it would keep her privates covered[[/note]] so it became a leotard. With Starfire, the comic version has large muscles and ''very'' large, dynamic hair, which were likewise sacrificed for animation's sake.
** There was a second wave of toning down for the Teen Titans series, as well. Some earlier episodes showed Starfire fairly well-endowed with distinct jiggling during the fights. Later episodes restricted her chest to a mere suggestion.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'': Drew Saturday. Form fitting SpyCatsuit, HartmanHips, and voiced by Creator/NicoleSullivan.

** Fifi La Fume is pretty curvy and seductive as well.
* Some dads enjoy watching ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' with their daughters mainly because of Sam, Clover, and Alex in their tight jumpsuits or even swimsuits in some cases.

* Amy Duncan (the mom of ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'') certainly seems to wear [[SweaterGirl a lot of really tight sweaters]] and shirts that [[MsFanservice don't always need to be worn]] (if that was the case, [[FridgeLogic then why is Amy the only female (or person) in the cast) that ''always'' seems to wear sweaters, even though the show is set in Denver?]] there's also the fact that sometimes, [[NippleAndDimed Amy's bras don't seem to be that well-padded]]. Add in the fact that even the kids mention the fact that [[GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex they shouldn't have too much fun]] because there are enough kids and that the DisneyChannel [[WordOfGod has been trying to get Leigh-Allyn Baker for a show for some time, but she thought that she was too young to play a mother to teens]]... yeah, she's [[UpToEleven this trope in spades.]]

* The original version of ''TheElectricCompany'' had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wp0-yDJAtWQ this]] that could be seen as Parent Service, NightmareFuel, FetishFuel (don't ask), or NightmareRetardant depending on how you look at it (and what's really unsettling is that the writers probably didn't mean for it to be like this).
