  • The Unnamed Parent is an unnamed father whose child (or children) attends Springfield Elementary School.
  • The unusually common practice in kids' shows of not giving a character's parents actual names even if they're around, instead being addressed as Mom and Dad, or occasionally by their last names. While this is probably to insert the feel of a story being shown by a child's perspective, as children don't really use their parents' names, it can make for really odd dialogue when another adult has to talk to them. This is a subtrope of No Name Given. Compare Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep". Examples of Unnamed Parent include:

abstract
  • The Unnamed Parent is an unnamed father whose child (or children) attends Springfield Elementary School.
  • The unusually common practice in kids' shows of not giving a character's parents actual names even if they're around, instead being addressed as Mom and Dad, or occasionally by their last names. While this is probably to insert the feel of a story being shown by a child's perspective, as children don't really use their parents' names, it can make for really odd dialogue when another adult has to talk to them. Some shows can even make this official. For reasons left fittingly unexplained, a person's grandfather might actually be called Granddad, and anyone asking for him want to talk to Granddad. This can become problematic at times, however, when someone outside of the immediate family who would normally be on a first name basis with the parent is involved. This is a subtrope of No Name Given. Compare Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep". Examples of Unnamed Parent include:
