* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'': In the episode "Emperor Joker!", one of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's {{mook}}s is Fatty. Unlike the Joker's other silent-comedian thugs, he's his chubby self rather than hugely overmuscled.

* PieInTheFace: Arbuckle's ''A Noise from the Deep'' (1913) is believed to be the first ever example of this trope, possibly the TropeMaker. TheOtherWiki credits a 1909 Ben Turpin film called ''Mr. Flip'', but notes that the pie in that film was hand-held, not thrown. In any case, Arbuckle would use this trope many, many times in later films.

** Similarly, the husband in ''Tintype Tangle" attacks Fatty with two pistols that don't seem to run out of bullets at first, but eventually, they do.

'''Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle''' was a silent film star in the 1910s, a pioneering film comedian and one of Hollywood's biggest stars during UsefulNotes/{{The Silent Age|OfHollywood}}. Today, however, he's best known for being the TropeMaker for celebrity scandals, and for being partly responsible for the development of UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode.

* ThoseTwoActors: Arbuckle made dozens of films with Mabel Normand (note how many times they are both mentioned in a title). He later made a bunch of movies with an up-and-comer named Creator/BusterKeaton.

Arbuckle started a singing career when he was a child, and began working in {{vaudeville}} when he was a teenager. He appeared in his first film in 1909, and started doing regular film work in 1913 after moving to Creator/UniversalPictures. Despite his size, Arbuckle was [[{{Acrofatic}} surprisingly agile and acrobatic]], and his films were known for their fast-paced comedy. One thing that his movies helped to popularize was the PieInTheFace gag -- [[UrExample the first known instance]] of a thrown pie landing in someone's face was in his 1913 short ''A Noise from the Deep''. His comedy proved to be a huge hit -- by 1914, Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures was offering him and his frequent collaborator Mabel Normand (one of Hollywood's first female writers, producers and directors) an unheard-of contract of $1000 a day, 25% of all profits and ProtectionFromEditors. By 1918, he was getting a 3-year, $3 million contract. In addition to making movies, Arbuckle managed to secure the big breaks of a number of actors whose names have become synonymous with early Hollywood, including Creator/CharlieChaplin, Creator/BusterKeaton and BobHope.
