Forgotten Dead
It's clear that someone close to the characters died, but they never seem to mention that person.

In a preemptive Put on a bus, a character was killed off before the show started. Still, you'd think the surviving characters would bring up memories now and then.

Examples

- Toy Story. What happened to Dad? Forgivable since the humans are side characters.

- Averted in Arrested Development, where the family regularly mentions Michael's dead wife.
