->''"It's a show that the kids can enjoy because of the cartoony action, and Dad can enjoy because he's a big ol' pervert!"''
-->-- '''Lore Sjöberg''', ''The Book of Ratings'' on ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}''

Parent Service is where an all-ages work throws in a bit of mild sexiness to provide extra entertainment for parents and older siblings. Writers know that moms/dads adore watching shows with hot men/women in them, so they throw it in, in case they have to watch it. It's also what separates family shows/movies from children's shows/movies: While in both cases kids are the primary target, the former is specifically designed to retain elements that will keep all members of the family entertained.

A SubTrope of ParentalBonus. Compare MultipleDemographicAppeal.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Parodied by ''Manga/CrayonShinChan'', in the episode where Shin's mom, Mitzi, develops a crush on the {{Bishonen}} [[DracoInLeatherPants villain]] of Action Bastard.
* The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime does play around with the concept with the Team Rocket trio, The Sensational Cerulean Sisters and Ash's mother, who have more than once come off like this. There are also a pretty good amount of one-shots that can apply as well, though the Orange Islands arc had a couple of very blatant examples with Professor Ivy and Lorelei/Prima. (But the show itself is generally tame compared to how certain ''Pokémon'' manga can be, especially Toshiro Ono's handiwork.)
* All ''Anime/TimeBokan'' series feature this (because, well, ''Time Bokan'''s villain trio is essentially always the same, just with different hairdoes and names):
** Doronjo of ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'' is a scantily-clad woman who constantly suffers ClothingDamage, sometimes ending up naked. The [[LiveActionAdaptation live-action]] incarnation of Yatterman-1 (portrayed by Sho Sakurai) has his own EstrogenBrigade.
** ''Itadakiman'' probably takes this the furthest and has the villainess strip in the opening.
* ''Manga/{{Yotsuba}}'' has Asagi and Fuuka. Also, [[http://myanimelist.net/character/3609/Yanda Yanda]] for the female audience.
* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in ''Anime/ActionHeroineCheerFruits'', where Genki encourages Roko to play her villainess character as TheVamp in order to appeal to the fathers in the audience, saying that this is something {{Toku}} does all the time (see Live Action Television, below). The discussion is even accompanied by images of three such villainesses: ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger''[='s=] Mele, ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''[='s=] Mezool, and ''Series/GogoSentaiBoukenger''[='s=] Shizuka of the Wind. However, Roko can't pull it off so Genki tells her to play a shy character instead.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Disturbingly parodied in ''F-Minus'', where a family is walking out of a showing of a kiddie movie, and the father comments that "That movie had something for everybody, talking animals for the kids, and tasteful nudity for the adults."
* In-canon example in ''ComicBook/LoveAndRockets'', in which BigBeautifulWoman Doralis becomes the hostess of a Hispanic-channel children's TV show and the focus of a drooling PeripheryDemographic.
* Franchise/ArchieComics has always been well-known for the MaleGaze sometimes used on its teenage girl characters.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* A Franchise/DisneyPrincess is sometimes this (unless she's clearly underage and, depending on how one defines "underage", sometimes even then).
** Ariel of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' is the first princess whose design evokes sexuality, as she's much curvier and scantily clad (in her mermaid form anyway). WordOfGod is that she was originally going to have GodivaHair, increasing this further.
** Esmerelda of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' gets a poledance (see this page's image).
** Shang in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' is a WalkingShirtlessScene, and Mulan herself ends up naked in a lake. With ''three other guys''.
** For another male example, ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' brings us the delectable Prince Naveen (also the first Disney prince who seems to [[ReallyGetsAround really get around]]), who is [[JamesBondage tied up with snakes]] at one point.
** Disney/{{Pocahontas}}' clothing seems to be this. It's certainly nothing an eastern woodlands tribal woman would wear[[note]]In reality Pocahontas probably would have been topless; but she also would have been only twelve years old[[/note]]. And there's her fiancé at the beginning, who seems to have spent a bit of time at the gym, and her friend's BareYourMidriff outfit.
** Disney/{{Aladdin}} has a scene where Jasmine acts quite seductive and sexy towards Jafar in order to distract him from Aladdin. Also, she's the first Princess who wears a BareYourMidriff outfit.
** Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is put in a stunning dress and given a SexyWalk in her song.
* A lot of the Carnival outfits in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rio}}'' count as this, especially when Linda puts on a BareYourMidriff [[SexyWhateverOutfit sexy bird outfit]].
* A Disney example that's not a princess (and must have been [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar gotten past the radar at gunpoint]]) is the infamous striptease from ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective''.
* Tinker Bell of Disney's ''Disney/PeterPan'' is an out and out FairySexy, and rumours are that she was modelled after Creator/MarilynMonroe.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* 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.
* In ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', sex symbol Music/DavidBowie wears a pair of extremely tight leather pants that leave nothing to the imagination.
* ''Please Don't Eat the Daisies'' was a light comedy movie about a family and, with moments like Creator/DorisDay as the mother leading a bunch of children in the title song, presumably intended for family audiences. One of its subplots, though, concerns the father's opinion of an actress' bottom. You can't get much more literal Parent Service than that.
* 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 Creator/MeganFox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are this.
* ''Film/{{Elf}}''. Creator/ZooeyDeschanel's shower scene.
* Shay Stanley's presence in ''Film/BlankCheck'' definitely qualifies for this. There's even a scene where she's dancing with the young protagonist in a series of water fountains.
* [[ChristmasCake Loni Anderson]] in ''Film/ThreeNinjas Knuckle Up''. (Though, this was just as she was reaching the peak, so the extra content? Not so much.)
* Vivica A. Fox as the fairy godmother in ''Film/EllaEnchanted''. Additional [[PantyShot Parental Service]] in her third appearance, providing you have the DVD version.
* The Asian [[{{Bishonen}} prettyboy]] ninja in the ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'' movie, who wears blindingly white tailored suits and has a shirtless scene at the end with authentic battle damage.
* When Sharpay of ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' gets food spilled on her shirt, Gabriella frantically paws her chest. Mocked in the Podcast/RiffTrax.
* Fathers stuck watching ''The Metro Chase'' with their kids probably won't complain too much when they see Lindsay Felton dressed like [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-bcNzSMmfZMA/ToDn3-HaVDI/AAAAAAAAAtA/K69PSiBYxgo/s1600/lindsayfeltonmetrochase.jpg this]].
* The live-action ''[[Film/TheJungleBook Jungle Book]]''; the kids get the cute animals. The adults get Jason Scott Lee in a loincloth.
* The live-action ''Film/{{Thunderbirds}}'' movie uses Lady Penelope in this way. Her character introduction is walking into Alan's classroom done up to the nines and saying "Hello boys". Plus there's a lenghty scene with her in the bath later on in the film.
* In ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'', Creator/MilaKunis wears some pretty tight pants, [[spoiler:and later a fair amount of cleavage after she turns into the wicked witch of the west]].
* ''Film/NightAtTheMuseum:''
** ''Battle of the Smithsonian'' has Amelia Earhart (Creator/AmyAdams) spend the entire film wearing [[PaintedOnPants very tight leather pants.]]
** Pharaoh Ahkmenrah (Creator/RamiMalek) wears an elaborate [[BareYourMidriff midriff revealing outfit]] in all three films.
* ''{{Film/Aquamarine}}'' is an otherwise G-rated kids' movie. But Sara Paxton plays a mermaid with GodivaHair - who is dressed very flatteringly when she's a human on land too.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* This trope is the only explanation for the skimpy outfits worn by the female presenters on certain kids' shows in TheEighties and TheNineties, in Latin America. To name a few presenters, there's Xuxa, [[http://slimcelebrity.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Joana-Mortimer-Prado.jpg Feiticeira]] and [[http://www.urgente24.com/sites/default/files/notas/2013/05/23/panam.jpg Laura "Panam" Franco]]; all of whom were models at one point, though [[ContractualPurity the first wouldn't like it if you knew]].
** Check out the shows ''[[http://musicacinetv.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/tatiana-palacios.jpg El Espacio de Tatiana]]'' and ''[[http://oi38.tinypic.com/zl2q2g.jpg Nubeluz]]''.
** Parodied on the episode of ''TheSimpsons'' where the Simpsons go to Brazil and Bart watches a Brazilian kids' show called ''Teleboobies'', featuring sexy women in tank tops and short-shorts rubbing against large letters, a showgirl/stripper demonstrating "clockwise" and "counterclockwise" using tassled pasties on her chest, and an unseen demonstration of "on top" and "underneath" (all we get to see is the family's [[ReactionShot wide-eyed reaction]]). Seeing her in a parade, Bart yells, [[FunnyMoment "Hey, it's the stripper from the kid's show!"]]
* ''Series/SkippyTheBushKangaroo'' has quite a few scenes of attractive women in bikinis, complete with music and camera focus making it clear that the sexiness of the ladies is being emphasized. Sunny (the youngest son) is oblivious, but the older males in the story certainly take notice.
* Emmy Jo Peden co-hosted 1970s kids' show ''Series/NewZooRevue'', which was aimed at preschoolers. That didn't stop her from wearing miniskirts and go-go boots.
* From Creator/NickJr, bored moms [[HasTwoMommies (and dads)]] have been known to crush on the Kratt Brothers of ''Zaboomafoo'', Sportacus from ''Series/LazyTown'', and Steve from ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'', as well as his replacement Joe.
* Lots of Parent Service on the UK young children's block Creator/CBeebies, most of it simply very good-looking presenters - although Sarah-Jane from ''{{Tikkabilla}}'' is a former contortionist, as many dads like to point out.
* JohnStamos had a large part to do with the staying power of ''Series/FullHouse''. Then there's Becky.
* The producers of ''Series/TheAvengers'' were pretty blatant as to their motives when they brought Diana Rigg onboard as ''M(an) Appeal'', er Emma Peel.
* Magazine/TVGuide did an article once about guys watching ''Series/CaptainKangaroo'' because of a "luscious babe" who used to be on it, sort of like Tim Taylor's female show lead in on ''Series/HomeImprovement''.
* The ''Series/TopOfThePops'' dance troupes such as Pan's People and Legs & Co. that the show used when they couldn't get live footage in the era before music videos were widespread. Over in America meanwhile, there were the ''Solid Gold'' dancers.
* Lampshaded in the third season of the {{Creator/HBO}} series ''Series/{{OZ}}'', when the inmates would regularly crowd around the TV to watch a children's program with a rather well-endowed hostess (with more than a few commenting on [[CargoEnvy how lucky the puppets were]]!).
* In Australia, there was a show called ''What's Up Doc'', which basically showed a few ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoons. It was hosted by Sophie Lee, who introduced the cartoons and tended to wear whatever she wanted due to the dress codes for television (It's not hard to see where that went). Catch was, however, that she wasn't wearing anything that was prohibited by any of the dress codes that existed or anything that was explicitly sexy. She was just extremely hot looking which caught a lot of parent's ire. She wasn't the only attractive woman to host that show. Current ''Getaway'' host Catriona Rowntree (who even went on to become the show's writer/producer) and former model Kate Fischer were also previous hosts of the show. The background set was loosely based on the idea that it's a ''Looney Tunes'' set, complete with a WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck shaped hole in the wall, but who cares?
* Some French-Canadian examples:
** Alia and Zalaé in ''Toc Toc Toc''. As with ''Series/LazyTown''[='=]s Stephanie above, the characters are preschool-aged children, but the parents only see the [[DawsonCasting adult]] actresses playing them.
** Passe-Carreau in ''Passe-Partout''. The attractiveness of the actress at the time is still a running gag for the show's generation.
** It was lampshaded very heavily in ''Les Bougons'', where the prostitute daughter of the family becomes a children's entertainer because of her sex appeal. Let's just say she's playing around with VERY phallic toys in her "videoclips". [[spoiler: The kid's show was in fact a ploy by the crooked producer to trick her into transitioning into hardcore interracial porn. It failed.]]
* Creator/TheBBC's ''Series/BluePeter'' [[http://web.archive.org/web/20130603121131/http://www.show.me.uk/dbimages/chunked_image/2006_1188.JPG isn't above this either]], although it comes off more as TheBeautifulElite.
** Mustn't forget[[note]]Will *never* forget[[/note]] when they did the [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/classic/bluepeter/simonpetersarah/gallery/images/1024/3bp19.html History of Lingerie]]
* Don't forget British Saturday morning kids' show ''Ministry of Mayhem'' with [[http://img002.lazygirls.info/people/holly_willoughby/holly_willoughby_stills_ministry_of_mayhem_0005_5rv2CWA.sized.jpg Holly Willoughby]], [[http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4142/4807936575_6686929d43_z.jpg a maids outfit]], and [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/6uT3L_pyWl8/hqdefault.jpg gunge and cream cakes being splattered about]]. Oh yes.
* Caleb gets a very brief, blink-and-you'll-miss-it ShirtlessScene in the opening titles of ''Mission:2110''.
* ''Series/TheATeam'': [[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.
* The Dad from ''Series/YoungDracula'' could count as being for the Mums... though a lot of his fanbase seems to be made up of teenage girls with Electra complexes.
* [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Morticia Addams]] in most of her incarnations.
* The mother on ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' seems to be used this way.
** On occasion, London (Brenda Song) and Maddie (Ashley Tisdale) fall under this trope too.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITyWBqiDEno No kidding?]]
-->'''Maddie:''' Ok, it's time to strip and make the bed!\\
'''London:''' Well ok. ''[nervously begins to remove her top]'' If that's what poor people do...
** Creator/DebbyRyan didn't fit this trope so much on ''Suite Life on Deck''. Then she [[{{Series/Jessie}} got her own show]] where she, um, [[BuxomIsBetter developed]]. Disney Channel isn't above putting her in scenes like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9_rJXMvjro this]], much like the London and Maddie example above. A relatively rare example of the (adult) main star on a KidCom fitting into trope, as this genre of show tends to have teens or even tweens play the main roles and therefore falling into {{Squick}} territory of they pull this off otherwise (though [[JailBait this hasn't stopped networks]] depending on who you ask)
*** Also from ''Jessie'', Christina Moore who plays the mom and Jessie's boss. Arguably Chip Epsten, the husband, particularly notable as he's now more frequently shirtless on ''Series/{{Nashville}}''.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' is well known for using the Doctor's companions for these purposes, where it's called "something for the Dads", although the show wasn't shy of having handsome young men around the place for the mums either. Some of the better known are:
** [[HotTeacher Ian Chesterton]], from way back in the 1960s, who Creator/CaroleAnnFord (who played Susan) admits she constantly begged the writers for a TeacherStudentRomance subplot with because she fancied him like mad, and [[http://windycitynerd.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/stevenfirstappearance.jpg Steven Taylor]], best known for wearing tight-fitting polo necks or occasionally [[WigDressAccent a policeman's uniform or a cowboy outfit]], were explicitly added so there could be a handsome young man around the place for ActionHero stuff and gentle ShipTease with female AudienceSurrogate characters, since William Hartnell's elderly Doctor was unsexy and unattainable.
** [[http://i528.photobucket.com/albums/dd330/sjswas/d2-2y-c014.jpg Zoe Heriot]]. No-one remembers much about her aside from her skin-tight LatexSpaceSuit and the lingering, almost worshipful shot of her [[http://web.archive.org/web/20141221005800/http://fancyfembot.com/wp-content/uploads/mindrob3.jpg rear]] in the beginning of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E2TheMindRobber "The Mind Robber"]].
** Jamie [=McCrimmon=]. At one point his actor, Frazer Hines, was voted Sexiest Legs on Television. [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E4TheEnemyOfTheWorld "The Enemy of the World"]] has him dress in a pleather uniform and pretend to be the servant of a CriminalDoppelganger of the Doctor. "The Mind Robber" goes out of its way to have Jamie climb things, allowing for lingering close-ups of the kilt-clad legs of both of the actors who play him. Frazer Hines recalled in an interview: "I said, 'Creator/{{Patrick|Troughton}}, you're paid a fortune as the Doctor to do all that speaking. I'm paid to get the girls from going out to the disco or a nightclub. And Padders [Wendy Padbury, who played Zoe as described in the previous paragraph] is paid to get the dads in from the garden.'"
** The Brigadier is handsome; Benton and Yates moreso and added specifically for this. Benton's lopsided good looks made him enough of an EnsembleDarkhorse that his EstrogenBrigade successfully petitioned the BBC into giving him a bigger role!
** Jo Grant. One example is her in [[http://media.tumblr.com/73e087fae3137b9aa34977465018e724/tumblr_inline_mlw923VE9e1qz4rgp.png yellow go-go boots]] in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS9E5TheTimeMonster "The Time Monster".]] (And that's not even taking into account that her actress, Creator/KatyManning, even posed for an infamous nude shoot with a Dalek after leaving the show.) She and a number of companions of this era are notorious for the number of PantyShot moments that occur. And then there's Ingrid Pitt's character in the same serial, a sexy Atlanean queen with [[MaleGaze very displayed]] and [[TheissTitillationTheory precarious]] cleavage, who spends most of her screen time trading unsubtle double entendres with [[EvilIsSexy Roger Delgado's Master]].
** Eldrad in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E2TheHandOfFear The Hand of Fear]]" - a sexy naked blue woman apparently made out of crystal, draping herself over Tom Baker. It's incredible to watch.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E3TheDeadlyAssassin "The Deadly Assasin"]] is the one Classic story with no companion for this job and the rest of the cast are either old men or a hissing walking corpse, so an excuse is found to dress the Doctor in an unfastened see-through pirate shirt and tight skinny leggings, and [[SexySoakedShirt get him wet]], complete with him tossing back his wet hair and striking a pose. Even official programme guides comment about how dashing and sexy Creator/TomBaker looks in this one. If you prefer a more conventionally handsome look for your men, the serial also delivers Bernard Horsfall in silver lipstick and eyeshadow.
** [[http://nerdalicious.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/leela-louise-jameson-2.jpg Leela]], a NubileSavage who often wore skimpy suede costumes. The media at the time, which was at the time heavily criticising the show, even complained that Leela was like "one of those awful pneumatic girls on ''Series/TopOfThePops''" (Legs and Co).
** Nyssa, who [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nyssa_9366.jpg takes her skirt off for no real reason]] in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E4Terminus Terminus]]". Creator/SarahSutton (the actress that played Nyssa) even admitted that this was deliberate fanservice (and her way of saying farewell to her character's fans) in a number of interviews after the episode aired.
** Tegan Jovanka. If you're into {{Sexy Stewardess}}es, remember that she spent her entire first series in [[http://cdn1.sciencefiction.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/tegan.jpg a stewardess outfit]]. And then there are [[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E5Enlightenment "Enlightenment"]] (casually the serial after the aforementioned "Terminus"), in which she wore a beautiful, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tegan_dress_2634.jpg low-cut]] dress that actually caused a couple of {{Wardrobe Malfunction}}s to her actress, Janet Fielding; and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E4ResurrectionOfTheDaleks "Resurrection of the Daleks"]], in which she has a [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/08/Tegan_Jovanka.jpg black miniskirt]].
** Peri. Her first appearance is [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/peri_in_peril.jpg in a bikini]]. She and Turlough both get in on the action in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E5PlanetOfFire "Planet of Fire"]].
** [[Creator/BilliePiper Rose]]. To put it simply: In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E4TheGirlInTheFireplace "The Girl in the Fireplace"]], there was an unintentional pan over [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/tardis/images/2/2d/Rosestrapped.jpg Rose's tightly-clad body]] while she was StrappedToAnOperatingTable. When the production team saw it in the edit, [[MaleGaze they kept it]].
** [[http://www.doctorwhoreviews.altervista.org/2008-04_files/The%20Sontaran%20Stratagem%20(12).jpg Martha's]] ([[CoveredInGunge "naked slimy evil clone"]]) in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E4TheSontaranStratagem "The Sontaran Stratagem"]].
** [[Creator/GeorgiaMoffett Jenny]], from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E6TheDoctorsDaughter "The Doctor's Daughter"]], although not a companion.
** Creator/JohnSimm's Master plays into this as well, and both he and Creator/DavidTennant (and Creator/BernardCribbins, if you're into old men) enjoy some [[http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/12/17/article-0-07A21ED3000005DC-99_468x610.jpg bound scene]] in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]], although sadly clothed.
** And for the Moms, the [[Creator/ChristopherEccleston Ninth]], [[Creator/DavidTennant Tenth]] and [[Creator/MattSmith Eleventh]] Doctors themselves. Possibly the [[Creator/PeterDavison Fifth]] as well, and perhaps even the [[Creator/JonPertwee Third]], in his way. The [[Creator/PaulMcGann Eighth]] has [[http://www.pmeb.org/ his own]] EstrogenBrigade. Heck, it seems that ''the [[Creator/PeterCapaldi Twelfth]]'' is starting to catch this, too, if Music/{{Foxes}} [[http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2014-08-01/peter-capaldi-is-a-charming-silver-fox-says-doctor-who-guest-star-foxes is to be believed]].
** The BadassInDistress scene in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek "Dalek"]]... definitely for the mums.
** [[Creator/JohnBarrowman Jack Harkness]] is arguably for the Mums (and for [[EvenTheGuysWantHim half the dads, though few will admit]]), especially [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E12BadWolf when he gets]] [[ClothingDamage de]][[http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a293/toolbox1234/DW20051x09BadWolf556.jpg fabricated]].
** Arguably all the dads in spin-off ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' are distinctly "for the mums".
** [[Creator/KarenGillan Amy Pond]], enough that [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/doctor-who/7554825/Viewers-think-new-Doctor-Who-is-too-sexy.html some people complained]] about her being "too sexy" for the show, because her [[http://wearpinkwednesdays.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/karen_1263542a.jpg sexy legs]] actually [[UnfortunateImplications broke]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51JtuEa_OPc the TARDIS.]]
** There's Clara's first appearance in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E1AsylumOfTheDaleks "Asylum of the Daleks"]] wearing a [[http://fanbloomingtastic.typepad.com/.a/6a01348617cb9c970c019b0067408f970d-800wi tight red dress]], which ''certainly'' resulted in many male fans/viewers/dads going "YOWZA!"
* "Studio 100" "Hallo K3" has this for both the moms and dads. For the dads, there are 3 women who wear some revealing clothing sometimes, and for the moms; there is Bas. The hot neighbour of the three girls, who gets many shirtless scenes!
* Many of the ''PowerRangers'' characters. Unsurprisingly, [[EvilIsSexy it always seems to be the villains that get the role]].
** Not that the Pink and Yellow Rangers would be outdone. Kat and Tanya, anyone? And definitely [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Kimberly]], what with the tight gymnastics outfits, the otherwise constant upskirts and the episode where Zedd decides to make her his queen...which she expertly counters by emulating Rita Repulsa in both dress and mannerisms.
** For the ladies, the likes of Tommy and Jason would always be wearing vests to show off their bulging biceps. And of course Leo from ''Lost Galaxy'' gets a pretty gratuitous scene where he rips off his shirt right before morphing. That one even made it into the opening sequence.
** And ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' has Cole, that season's Red Ranger, who usually walked around with a ripped vest that showed off his muscular arms. Not to mention the scene of him and the other rangers facing against the BigBad when they lost their morphing powers, in the rain and Cole is shirtless for majority of the scene. Thank you, producers.
* In the last decade or so, practically every {{Tokusatsu}} show has started casting {{Bishonen}} models[=/=]singers[=/=]actors in the male roles, and attractive ''gravure'' (bikini models) and singers (and in a couple of cases like ''[[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger Go-onger]]'', former Adult Video actresses!) in the female roles.
** One noteworthy recent example of this is episode 27 of ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'': before going into battle, [=Daigo/KyoryuRed=] pulls off a spectacular BattleStrip similar to Leo's aforementioned one, complete with gratuitous close-ups of his bare chest. Unlike Leo, though, not only does Daigo fight unmorphed, but he also spends the rest of his unmorphed screentime shirtless.
** While this practice has increased in the last decade, it's not new. When Sentai was a new series, the standard Japanese house-hold had one television and at least five occupants, so shows had to be designed to have something for everyone in the room. Otherwise, kids wouldn't see the show long enough to get excited about buying the toys. So, there was action and slap-shtick for the kids, light romance for the teens, cute girls for dad, cute guys for mom and an overall light drama for the token family elder. It's hardly like Kamen Rider and Super Sentai weren't full of attractive guys and women in the Showa era!
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' parodies this. Robin, whose alterego Robin Sparkles used to be a teen pop star in Canada, was also the star of a Canadian kids show called "Space Teens". Although the show is supposed to be about two Canadian teenagers solving outer space mysteries through math, when the gang watches it, they find it to be pretty much this trope. It starts with Robin Sparkles sliding down a pole in a short skirt and continues on to feature the teens tugging on an... interestingly shaped control, singing about their (pet) beavers, and solving math problems about how many inches of wood their beavers can eat. Robin, of course, refuses to see the show as anything but innocent, while the rest of the gang laughs it up.
* There's a reason why the actors in ''Series/HorribleHistories'' (a sketch show aimed [mostly] at kids on the BBC) are shirtless every now and then, and it's not just historical accuracy.
** Best demonstrated in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlwDrpTq2Mo song "The Highwayman" about Dick Turpin]], where they dressed up the most attractive member of the cast in fancy clothes and eyeliner and had him smoulder through the song, which is a pastiche of 'Stand and Deliver' by Adam and the Ants. 99% of the comments on the YouTube video are women commenting on the sexiness of the video.
** And for the males, the actress in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jETBIQQ2P7Y Victorian Inventions song]] has noticable cleavage.
** The song sung by the four King Georges of the Georgian era is a BoyBand pastiche in which they strike smouldery expressions and sing in numerical order - "I was the sad one," (George I), "I was the bad one" (George II, played by the most attractive man in the cast, Matt Baynton), "I was the mad one" (George III) and "I was the fat one" (George IV). When this was performed live in the Horrible Histories Proms, Matt sung "I was the bad one," and there was a ''really'' loud and noticeable collective {{Squee}} from the crowd's [[PeripheryDemographic adult women]].
** The RAF pilots song is another BoyBand pastiche where Matt Baynton smoulders a lot.
* 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 Creator/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.]]
* ''Series/SesameStreet'' hasn't blatantly done this (except maybe with [[SesameStreetCred guest stars]]), but over the years there have been a number of (human) female characters who just happened to be fairly easy on the eyes (Maria, Linda, Gina, Leela).
** Also, Sesame Street features a lot of EDUCATIONAL parent-service, in the form of bits teaching things that adults are also interested in (such as the basics of French and Spanish) and guests that have no real educational or interest value to anyone under 30, such as popular musicians from the '80s appearing in the late '90s and later. Averted with Katy Perry: her segment with Elmo was cut because of her cleavage.
* Parodied by perverted theatre director Don Dimello in the Series/ComedyBangBang podcasts and TV Show, who is so obsessed with providing "something for daddy" that he directs adaptations of fairy tales as at best risque burlesque and at worse hardcore porn.
* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'':
** As Jerry might say of his wife Theresa - '''Mamma mia!''' There was even one episode where she had ''serious'' cleavage showing, and they blurred it out. In the movie he is blatantly checking out her ass and even comments on it.
** The Parent Service gets really blatant at the end of "New Employee" - just check out Theresa's dance routine, and her 'Flashdance'-inspired last line: "And pull the cord!"
** A recent episode features Theresa dressed as a schoolgirl, really proud of the fact that she was the most popular girl at school, which is explained by Jerry who says that ''she was the first girl admitted in a boys highschool''.
* 1970's-80's British Saturday morning show ''Series/{{Tiswas}}'' had [[http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/resources/images/2620384/ Sally James]]. [[http://sally-james.com/wp-content/gallery/promo-stills-bw/tiswas-studio-4.jpg Her usual attire was either a tight t-shirt or a denim waistcoat worn with nothing underneath, with thigh-length boots and tight jeans, shorts or a short skirt]], though she could sometimes be seen in a [[http://www.celebsinsuspenders.co.uk/S/sallyjames/sallyjames.jpg schoolgirl outfit]] or dressed as a circus ringmaster in a high cut leotard. Royal Navy sailors sent her cap bands with the names of their ships, which she then wore as [[http://sally-james.com/wp-content/gallery/promo-stills-bw/tiswas-studio-2.jpg garters]]. She was also frequently doused in gunge or buckets of water. It was that sort of show.
* ''Series/{{The Librarians|2014}}'' includes former Victoria's Secret model Rebecca Romijn, although Creator/LindyBooth does most of the fanservice with her short dresses, most notably in "And the Apple of the Discord", where she ends up in her underwear after she gets hold of a magic item... which none of the cast do. The male cast aren't bad looking either.
* Conversed and frequently referenced in Dara O'Briain's Craic Dealer. He refers to it as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9_i6tiAzw0/ SOMETHIN FER DA DADS!]]
* ''Series/WonderWoman'': The show was a live action [[ComicBooks comic book]] with simple good vs. evil plots and G rated violence where TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin. That's a recipe for the kids to enjoy. [[Creator/LyndaCarter Lynda Carter]] in a satin bathing suit provided a different kind of appeal entirely.

* {{Creator/Studio100}} {{K3}} is considered an example hereof in The Netherlands and Belgium. Three women jumping up and down in cute dresses while singing songs marketed towards children, though the parents, especially the fathers tend to be a bit of a bonus audience. there is quite a lot of parental bonus in the texts as well.
* And [[http://www.lukassenprodukties.nl/djumbo Djumbo]] from The Netherlands would [[https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Djumbo_bij_Hallo_Djumbo_Tour.jpg also]] [[http://videoklip.free.fr/djumbo_eyahe/djumbo02.jpg count]].
* Music/SClub7 was a kid's band, but had a very attractive [[https://38.media.tumblr.com/a5516b9e23ff70026acb66e7f3cb9492/tumblr_neomm3h0ex1u219k0o1_1280.jpg group of members.]] Compounding this is the fact that their TV show (on CBBC, remember) was set in Miami, Los Angeles, and Barcelona, meaning the group was frequently in swimsuits and other warm-weather clothing.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* The very sport of professional wrestling is this to some but for those who needed a little more, [[WrestlingDoesntPay wrestling porn star]] Val Venis would rub his back with a towel.
* Angel Rose would pull off her shirt for a CheapPop in U Know Pro, even though the gear she wore underneath it covered just as much.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* ''[[Series/SesameStreet The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland]]'' has Vanessa Williams as the Queen of Trash.

* On the Radio/BoersAndBernstein show (a sports radio show in Chicago), the host Dan Bernstein regularly explains that he enjoys watching [[Creator/FoodNetwork Giada De Laurentiis]] with his daughter. His daughter likes the show because she explains cooking in a way that she can easily understand. He likes it because a decent percentage of the shots in the show are of Giada's chest.

* A newspaper article once read speculated that the 1904 play ''PeterPan'' was a source of Parent Service in that young women generally played the title role. Remember, a woman in leggings was ''very'' racy in Edwardian times. Then there's Tiger Lily, a NubileSavage in a tight, short, leather dress.
* Most Pantomimes (where the Principal Boy is always played by a woman) is a source of this, even today.
* Let's go back even further, when the laws loosen up to allow women to perform, they were often put in roles that includes 'disguising oneself as a boy' for this reason.
* ''Theatre/PokemonLive'' had several dancers in the background wearing skin-tight leotards.
** James delivers a joke about employment benefits and "Don't Ask Don't Tell".
* About half way through the song ''Be Prepared'' in the theatrical version of ''The Lion King'', there's a dance sequence performed by half a dozen male dancers. The parent service comes from them being topless apart from their hyena masks.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* [[BigBad The Dark Queen]] from the ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' series. [[EvilIsSexy It's no wonder]] that people play [[NintendoHard these games]]. She gives the words NintendoHard a [[IncrediblyLamePun whole new meaning]].
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': Apparently, [[http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/3ds/zelda-ocarina-of-time/1/7 one of the developers' wives had some say on Link's character design]]:
--->'''Aounuma:''' So Link is your wife's type?\\
'''Koizuma:''' [[BluntYes Yes.]]
** Heck, ''Miyamoto's wife'' had a say in his design for ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', saying their original boyish teen Link with a "distinctive button nose" wasn't attractive enough. Shigeru jokingly asked if she'd play the game if he was better looking. She seriously said yes.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' has two principal characters:
** The sexy blonde nurse, called literally HelloNurse. Hello Nurse's appearance almost always prompts Wakko and Yakko into exclaiming "[[TropeNamer Hellooooooo, Nurse!]]", (one of the show's well-known lines) and jumping into her arms. She also appears in some short as hostess, maid, FemmeFatale, etc.
** Minerva Mink, an attractive, beautiful and sexy anthropomorphic mink (a reason why the censors found her cartoons TooHotForTV and scrapped them). In her short she appears in a ModestyTowel and has a ShowerScene (with SexySilhouette).
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** In the first season, when the main cast was at its youngest and most childish, the creators gave us Commander Zhao, introduced with a ShirtlessScene, and voiced by Jason Isaacs.
* The villainesses in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Extra points go to Harley and Ivy's blatant ([[WordOfGay and canon!]]) LesYay, and, in later episodes, Harley's attempts to seduce the Joker, which involved pies and nighties and were about as risqué as they were unsuccessful.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow'' had an in-universe example with Brak's favorite show, ''Señor Science''. His dad has quite a fondness for the title character's assistant, Chikita. However, given that she's never on screen, we viewers have to [[TakeOurWordForIt take Dad's word]] on how sexy she is.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' is not immune, such as with Desiree. There's also Vlad for a male example--he even gets a ShirtlessScene at one point. Also pay attention to how the Fenton parents often react to each other.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' has [[FairySexy The Tooth Fairy]] and [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Princess Mandie]].
* It's December, you're sitting around with your kids during Christmas Break who are watching Creator/CartoonNetwork, the special ''WesternAnimation/GrandmaGotRunOverByAReindeer'' comes on, and Cousin Mel is dancing in a coconut bikini top singing a VillainSong about suing SantaClaus.
* Miss Sara Bellum in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. The camera is ''permanently fixed'' at her cleavage.
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'':
** Adult [=AndrAIa=] wears a top that that shows off most her torso and a lot cleavage
** And, despite the [[AxCrazy crazy]], Hexadecimal had to be the original Parental Bonus.
** Daemon's skimpy clothes and several "rebooted" attires for Dot Matrix (Elvira comes to mind) also qualify.
*** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] hilariously when Dot and Bob find themselves in a ''Franchise/TombRaider'' like game, and Dot Reboots as a hot Egyptian chick, checks out her new form and accessories for something she doesn't find and, at Bob's enquiry, replies '''"Well, I was hoping for a couple of [[DoubleEntendre Forty-Fives]]."'''
*** For that matter, so's Bob, Ray, and even Megabyte to a select few. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ud83-o2lHJk They all had their moments]].
** Mouse as well, always wearing pants that were little more than a texture map and swaying her hips suggestively. Even Megabyte notices.
--->'''Mouse:''' Let's get this show on the road, my meter's runnin'.\\
'''Megabyte:''' ([[MaleGaze eyes locked on to her butt]]) ''Indeed.''
* 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!).
* 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..
* In ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' Rogue fulfilled this role. Sure, you could make a claim for others, but Rogue was, WordOfGod even admitting such, always drawn and designed in the show to show off as much skin as she could without actually going overboard.
** Then there's "Walk On The Wild Side" which gets all the X-girls into black leather pants and halter tops as they prepare to fight crime. Oh lord.
