Fantone’s Friday Top 5: Worst TV Moms
With Mother's Day coming up, everybody gets this idealistic view of mothers. Don't get me wrong, 9 moms out of 10 are pretty great, but that 1 bad mom is usually awful. Check out the 5 TV moms that probably should have dropped their babies off at a police station.
Number Five: Estelle Costanza from Seinfeld
George Costanza has one of the most obnoxious and melodramatic mothers of all time. Estelle was constantly loudly criticizing both her son and her husband. George blamed all of his neurotic behavior on Estelle, and he was probably justified in doing so. From childhood, Estelle badgered George with "Why can't you be more like Lloyd Braun?" George's childhood friend who ended up in a mental institution. Way to build confidence in your child, Estelle. Her doll was quoted,
Georgie, don't eat with your hands! Why do you eat so fast? You can't even taste it! You're wearing that shirt? You've had it for five years already! Why don't you buy a new shirt!!
Number Four: Peg Bundy from Married...with Children
It's no wonder why Bud and Kelly were such degenerates, their mom literally did not care about them. Peg spent all her time killing them with secondhand smoke and spending money that could have went to making a better life on male strippers. Peg Bundy wasn't just an bad mom, she was an awful wife too. Peg belittled and mocked Al in front of the kids on a regular basis. If the Bundy clan was still around today, Kelly would be an abusive relationship and Bud would be on drugs, thanks to their awful, awful mother.
Number Three: Mrs. Pickles from Rugrats
It's one thing to ignore your teenagers, but when you walk away from 5 toddlers for hours at a time, you're on a whole new level of irresponsible. Tommy and his gang of pants poopers got into numerous dangerous adventures, had a terrorizing bully of a cousin, and never seemed to get changed.
Number Two: The Gang's moms from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
Mac, Charlie, Dee and Dennis are four of the most morally reprehensible characters in television history and their mothers are to blame. Frank is a terrible dad as well, but at least he's awesome.
Charlie's mom Bonnie, works as a hooker for mall Santas and their elves during the holiday season. She's also a racist, attracted to abusive men, and not sure who Charlie's real dad is.
Mac's mom, another horrible racist, is another example of a completely apathetic mother. She spends her time smoking cigarettes and grunting. She fell asleep at her son's fake funeral and taught a young Mac that breaking into neighbors houses and stealing presents was the real meaning of Christmas.
Barbra Reynolds, mom to Dennis and Sweet Dee, is as selfish and cruel as they come. She passed away in a plastic surgery gone wrong, but before her passing, she permanently scarred her kids. She made it perfectly clear that Dee was her least favorite child, and left her children with the grossly irresponsible Frank.
Number One: Mrs. Cartman from South Park
Sluts don't make good moms, and that statement couldn't be more true when it comes to Mrs. Cartman. It's true that she is sweet to Eric, but by giving into her son's every wish, she has created a selfish, empathetic monster. Mrs. Cartman lied to Eric about his biological father, has had sex with seemingly every adult in South Park, and is just as racist and homophobic as Eric, plus she's fed her child to the point of obesity. Considering her drug use and appetite for gang-bangs, and the fact that she tried to abort her 8-year-old, Mrs. Cartman earns the top spot in worst TV moms ever.
