When the makers of a television show decide that adding a cute kid to the cast will make the ratings of the show go up. This normally is not the case. Comes from the fact that Scrappy Doo supposedly made to entire Scooby Doo cartoon get cancelled
Examples:
The Cosby Show- Olivia
Smurfs- The Smurflings
Scooby Doo- Scrappy Doo
The Brady Bunch- Cousin Oliver
