** In the [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017 reboot]] the same applies to Webby, who has been raised by Mrs. Beakley in Scrooge's mansion. Not so much for the triplets, since their uncle has been their actual parental figure and still is active in their lives as in the comics.

* In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold,'' ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' (which provides the page image), Arnold lives with his paternal grandparents, who are the landlords of a quirky boarding house. This went unexplained until the episode "Parents Day," when we learn that his parents, Miles and Stella, disappeared on a humanitarian mission in South America. Later episodes and the upcoming movie ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnoldTheJungleMovie'' explore the issue in more detail. Interestingly, although Arnold's father Miles was apparently an only child, his mother Stella has at least one sibling, the parent of Arnold's weird cousin Arnie. This aunt or uncle only exists by inference, however, as he or she isn't seen or even mentioned in either of Arnie's two appearances on the show.
