Default Why weren't Tommy's parents there?

Did anyone find it weird that Tommy was the only one that didn't bring his parents with him in "Return Of An Old Friend"?

Tommy was raised by his Aunt and Uncle right?

Tommy seemed like a longer latchkey kid so it fit.

it sounds like he had Parents so my guess is he had adoptive Parents who had raised him

They must have been working or something. Having parents there wouldn't have worked storywise. Since Tommy had to be late to make his grand entrance at the end of part 1.

Tommy was raised by his aunt and uncle. I assume they were busy with work.

not likely he mentions he has Parents. He never mentions his Aunt or Uncle in fact we only heard of his Uncle once and it was through I believe Kimberly who stated he had told her he likes to go to his Uncle's cabin on the lake whenever he's feeling down.

I think Kilo is getting it from some original movie information. I remember an article in a newspaper that said he was raised by his uncle. Which may not be right. Since it also mentioned Kimberly having a crush on Billy before Tommy.

We did see his Uncle in Zeo. And he was mentioned in Turbo as well.

we don't know if it's the same Uncle that Kimberly was referring to though. I don't recall him in Zeo but now that you mention it I think 1 of his Uncles was in Turbo

He borrowed his Uncle's Water Speeder. The episode where Gasket abducted him. We saw his uncle looking for him.
