Every one loves Donna, Eric, Kelso, Jackie, Hyde and even Fez. But one of the funniest things about That '70s Show is their wacky parents. If Red wasn't such a hot head it wouldn't be as much fun watching Eric get in trouble!

The Formans:

Red and Kitty Forman are Eric and Laurie's loveable parents. Well Kitty is loveable, Red... not so much. He's very strict and comes across as a big grump most of the time. Red (played by Kurtwood Smith) is sure to use his favorite word "dumb-ass" at least five times an episode and it's usually because of Eric. In Red's eyes his daughter Laurie can do no wrong. His little angel has him wrapped around her little finger. His only other weakness, surprisingly, is Hyde. The two really get along.

Kitty (played by Debra Jo Rupp) used to work as a nurse, but after Red caught the kiddies smoking pot, she decided to stay home and keep an eye on them. She spends her time holding the family together and keeping the peace. She loves her family very much, even Laurie who she says she loves "because she has to." She also loves the wayward Hyde like he was her own, which makes for some sweet moments. She pampers Eric a lot and sees to it that he's good to Donna. Her trademark whiny laugh always cracks me up. When she's not peace keeping in her own house she's trying to keep her friendship in tact with their neighbors, the Pinciottis.

The Pinciottis:

Bob and Midge are Donna's parents although they don't seem to do much parenting. They're always off getting caught up in the latest craze. It's a good thing that Donna is a good girl. Red recently discovered that Bob (played by Don Stark) wears a rug. The annoyingly happy little man gets a kick out of annoying his neighbor Red. He loves sporting velour tracksuits and robes and showing off his hairy chest. Ewww!

Midge (played by Tonya Roberts) is a bit of an air head and never really knows what's going on with Donna because she's too busy throwing some kind of get together with her feminist friends. Bob and Midge are a little too friendly with their public display of affection even when Donna had friends over. Poor girl - they're always embarrassing her. Aren't you glad they're not your parents?

Did you know that Tonya Roberts (Midge) was one of Charlie's Angels in the real 70s?

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
