For example, Meowth from Pokemon gets some sympathy from me because not only is he always surrounded by incompetence from Team Rocket, but he is overshadowed by Pikachu.
I also feel sorry for Becky Slater from the Wonder Years. She is always playing 2nd fiddle to Winnie Cooper, she is much cuter than Winnie, and she was treated like dirt by that loser Kevin Arnold.
Esther Rolle get my sympathy for putting up with Jimmie Walker. Once John Amos left Good Times, Esther Rolle made it a little bit tolerable. Her legacy deserves better than being remember by playing second class to Jimmie Walker's incompetence and stupidity.
I have lots of sympathy for Savannah (7th Heaven), Lyric (There and Back), and Landon, Atianna, Alabama (Meet the Barkers) because of bad parenting on their respective shows.
