  1. Anime example: What about the Son/Ox family from Dragon Ball? Goku, Gohan and Goten saving the world all the time, plus Ox King’s perversions REALLY piss off Chichi. The best parenting comes from Piccolo, who’s basically the godfather.

    Western example: What about the Flintstones?

  2. Griffins are the most dysfunctional family that ever walk on earth. I prefer Peter to get tortured to death by Fliqpy in front of Meg. Later, Flippy adopter her as her daddy
