I think we have a Strawman or a Jerkass Has a Point moment In Terms of Endearment when Wooldoor explains that a Tumor has turned Foxy into a racist stereotype and Clara asks "What was she before." While mean it accurate as they just shifted from the modern black promiscuous stereotype, to the much older minstrel one.

  • Adult Child: Captain Hero, quite often. One episode, "Super Nanny", is entirely based around this trope.

Adult Child has been renamed to One of the Kids. In order for this to be an example of the trope, the character's childishness has to be from or demonstrated by interacting with children. This example can be added back with context relevant to the trope if it fits.

Manchild is really the more appropriate trope in this instance.

The trope list on this page has both Expy and Captain Ersatz, but these are different tropes that shouldn't describe the same characters. One ought to be removed.

On A Date with Rosie Palms, it said that the network didn't want anything that looked like real masturbation. Wasn't the black waiter in Spelling Applebees doing real masturbation? Even Foxxy in Clum Babies?

Is it okay to add So Bad, It's Horrible? This is Seltzer and Friedberg on steroids.
07:23:10 PM Aug 25th 2010
I wouldn't. That trope is for works which are almost universally agreed to be horrible. As much as a lot of people hate it, it simply has too many fans to qualify for that.
08:21:06 PM Sep 14th 2010
Yeah, but most fans won't admit to liking it.

I'll admit that it's not a perfect show and they do overdo certain types of jokes. That said, I don't have trouble admitting I like it.

That aside, there are message boards and social communities devoted to it, so I would take anyone who's a member of one as someone who admits to liking it. And whether they admit to liking it or not is irrelevant anyway. It can by measured by any number of criteria that this show has a fanbase, so unless we redefine the parameters of what makes something So Bad, It's Horrible, Drawn Together just doesn't qualify.

Hey, um, how is Foxy a Two For One Minority? She's black ... and African American?
01:32:23 PM Dec 1st 2010
She's black and female. Yes, believe it or not, the media considers female to be a minority.

Does that apply even when nearly half the main cast is female, though?
