There's no denying that parents aren't perfect, but sometimes TV shows take it a littllllleee too far. Even on kids shows!
Like, Timmy's parents on The Fairly OddParents were awful. They constantly left him alone with an abusive babysitter!
I'm still kind of pissed off about Danny's parents in Danny Phantom. If you're going to mess with weird ghost science, at least make sure your kid's not going to wander into one of your machines and basically kill himself.
And I know this show is for teenagers, but Joyce kicking her 16-year-old daughter out and then blaming Giles on Buffy the Vampire Slayer never sat right with me.
I'm still so confused how Chase's parents literally let him transfer schools and countries just to chase Zoey on Zoey 101.
Now it's your turn! What's the most messed-up thing a parent did on a kids or teen show that tends to get glossed over? Let us know in the comments below and you could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
