* DepartmentOfChildDisservices: In "Date with Destiny", we learn that Social Services technically exists. Of course, they're completely useless, taking Max away from Goofy with almost no investigation into the matter. Perhaps the house being half-demolished would warrant Max being removed for a short time, but he's actually returned even as the house gets ''even more'' damaged. Miss Pennypacker does no research into the house Max would stay at. And at the end, she asks Goofy to take her out to dinner on a whim, which just goes to show how unprofessional she is.
** And despite them existing, and PJ's personality suggesting a rough home life, and all the mishaps he gets into with Max, nobody has ever looked into PJ's situation. [[SkewedPriorities Ever.]] Presumably because Pete has ''two'' parents.

* DepartmentOfChildDisservices: In "Date with Destiny", Max has to move in with the Petes because life with Goofy is too unstable, which means that he had ''two'' bad nights, one of which was spent writing a report, and the other of which wasn't even Goofy's fault to begin with. (It was Pete's). And yet... ''[[SocialServicesDoesNotExist no one]]'' thinks to look into PJ's situation. [[SkewedPriorities Ever.]]

* SocialServicesDoesNotExist: Averted in "Date with Destiny" where Max had to live with the Pete family for a short period of time, after his principal deemed that life with Goofy is too unstable (see DepartmentOfChildDisservices). But for the most part, this is played entirely straight, to the point that Pete can say or imply he abuses or neglects PJ in a courtroom ("Bringin' on the Rain") or a hospital ("Axed by Addition") and not get looked into, despite the fact that PJ's warning signs are numerous and a few are not very subtle.

* GoneHorriblyRight: Pete succeeds at causing a massive (simulated) earthquake in the Goofs' house in "Good Neighbor Goof", but it shakes everything into its appropriate place.

Added DiffLines:

* IronicFear: Pete mentions his fear of heights on several occasions. This is ironic because Goofy, who has an even harsher relationship with gravity, and is responsible for more than a few of Pete's less pleasant encounters, isn't afraid of heights at all.

* AbusiveParents: Pete insults and belittles PJ, browbeats and threatens him, manipulates him emotionally, recklessly and indirectly injures him, consistently holds him to unrealistic expectations, is excessively domineering in most aspects of PJ's life, and on multiple occasions treats him almost literally like a slave. PJ is consistently played as mistrusting his father even when Pete ''isn't'' abusing him. Little wonder that fanon expands this to physical abuse...
