Tommy's parents

Tommy's parents (Japanese: ママ Mama and パパ Papa), are a pair of characters of the day who appeared with their son in The Kangaskhan Kid. They are shown to be a very wealthy family. One day, when the family was flying over Safari Land, Tommy's dimwitted father held Tommy outside the window and accidentally dropped him.

Years later, Tommy's parents brought a photo of Tommy to Officer Jenny, who recognized the boy as "Tomo", a feral boy living with a herd of Kangaskhan in the Safari Zone. When Tommy was introduced to his parents, he initially did not recognize them and did not believe that they were really his parents.

However, after his father whacked him in the head, Tommy's memories of them were restored. Tommy's father then asked if he remembered him (in the Japanese version, he asks if Tommy remembers him being breastfed, explaining why he was opening his shirt to expose his chest) before Misty knocked him unconscious due to feeling that Tommy had enough problems as is. Tommy's parents tried to convince him to leave the Kangaskhan, but instead, they eventually decided to live together with Tommy and the Kangaskhan.
