These morals tend to get heavy-handed which, combined with their increasing frequency since the TurnOfTheMillennium, can quickly make them the bane of GenreSavvy viewers. In all fairness, though, many children in developed countries ''have'' been getting heavier to the point of obesity in recent years (as have many adults, for that matter), so obviously the higher-ups want to tell people about it.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Subverted}} in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/HomeMovies'' in which Brandon and Jason become overweight from overindulgence in junk food and decide they've become "fat enablers"; when they're apart they [[FormerlyFat drop the weight just fine]], but when they spend time together they revert to their old overindulging ways. {{Subverted}} because at the end of the episode they decide that their friendship is more important to them than their weight, they rope Melissa into joining them to become morbidly obese, and they make a series of movie parodies like "Fat Club." [[SnapBack Then they're back to normal in the next episode.]]
