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.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** One episode has the town declared as the fattest town in America. This greatly concerns Marge and she manages to convince other people to enforce a ban on sugar so that everyone can start eating healthier. Naturally, people resist to the point of smuggling sugar prohibition style. StatusQuoIsGod kicks in at the end where Marge eventually gives up and lets people indulge in their sugar cravings.
** Zig-zagged in one episode where Homer purposely gains weight to the point of weighing over 300 pounds because it would make him legally disabled, thus he can work from home and never have to physically go to work. A moment later, he gets a warning from the power plant that there will be a meltdown if the problem is not taken care of right now. Homer races to the source and winds up plugging up the hole with his enlarged rear, which somehow stops the threat. Homer realizes that if he had not gained weight, he would have fallen to his death. Homer then decides he has to lose weight so Marge would not be turned off by his body anymore. Mr. Burns tries to get Homer to exercise, but gives up after seeing Homer is too fat to do a proper sit up and decides to just get him liposuction.

* ''Anime/KirbyOfTheStars'' has an episode entitled "Fitness Fiend", which has Dedede obtaining potato chips designed to be ''very''' addictive and to cause the consumer to increase in size by a great deal. Unfortunately, ''[[HoistByHisOwnPetard he]]'' ends up falling victim to their effect, along with Kirby, forcing him and Kirby to lose the weight with the monster Max Flexer (granted, that was their original goal, minus Dedede also being forced to).
