On the Lilo and Stich example don't the experiments refer to each other as cousins, rather than siblings? The example still holds if so but for Kissing Cousins, not this.

I removed this example:
- Maybe it's only me that watches WordGirl (it's the only funny show on PBS, which is one of the only channels I get... so yeah...), but how can this not have gotten a mention yet? TJ, Becky Botsford's younger brother, has a massive crush on Word Girl.
- In no way are you alone, fellow troper. I must say, the incest is averted slightly, due mainly to the fact that Becky's adopted, and also TJ has a crush on WordGirl, not Becky. (In fact, he has such a rivalry with his sister he rebuffs all of Becky's minor "slip-ups", stating there's no way she can be WordGirl because WordGirl is too cool. Even to the point of disliking WordGirl when he briefly found out she's his sister in "Two-Brains Forget".) However, there's definitely something there. It would certainly be an interesting shipping, if only the fans didn't solely support WordGirl and Tobey.
- Now that I think about it, there was that whole thing in "Pretty Princess Premiere". TJ did imply he thought WordGirl was stunningly beautiful.

I recommend substituting Todd "Scoops" Ming's parents and Violet Heaslip's parents. See the first 2 images in the gallery here http://wordgirl.wikia.com/wiki/TOEB Would also qualify for "Complicated Family Tree" due to the inbreeding. Even if Becky and TJ did hook up, they're not biological siblings (she's an adopted alien, he's the baby her adoptive parents had later) and yeah, he's more into her alter ego than to her. In one episode TJ actually finds out Becky is Wordgirl (he gets mind-wiped at the end) and is disgusted about it.
