* 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: 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 [[TheChick Chick]], Tawnia was definitely for the dads.

* 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.]]
* Babs Bunny in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' had a habit of adding a load of curves when she did some of her costume changes. The two most blatant being the Elvira costume when trying to get an acting gig from Shakesphere, and the time she (somehow) disguised herself as a human to get a role in the "live-action" series "Thirteen-something", and spent half the episode with a pair of double-D's (on a two-foot body, no less!).

* In the live-action ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' films (and perhaps Scooby-Doo as a whole), the outfits worn by Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar) are pretty clearly Parent Service. The vinyl SpyCatsuit Velma wears briefly in the second film is even more so, and the cameo of Pam Anderson in a slightly sheer white top is nothing but.
** Creator/RogerEbert, an admitted "cleavage fetishist", pointed this out in his review as a way of [[DistractedByTheSexy coping with]] the movie:
--->As for myself, scrutinizing the screen helplessly for an angle of approach, one thing above all caught my attention: the director, Raja Gosnell, has a thing about big breasts. I say this not only because of the revealing low-cut costumes of such principals as Sarah Michelle Gellar, but also because of the number of busty extras and background players... ''Scooby-Doo'' could have been a comedy about how a Russ Meyer clone copes with being assigned a live-action adaptation of a kiddie cartoon show.
** The first movie was originally going to be more adult, with things like overt references to marijuana and the suggestion that Velma was a lesbian (with the hots for Daphne). They eventually decided not to go in that direction (although there's still some pretty blatant weed gags), but some of the above is probably a leftover effect.
