Historical figures who sported the Southern white suit included Creator/MarkTwain and Colonel Harland Sanders[[note]]The founder of KentuckyFriedChicken[[/note]]; but neither of them was particularly fat or particularly villainous. Mark Twain's satires of Southern aristocracy might have been the TropeCodifier here.

** In "The Monkey Suit", during the trial against Lisa and evolution, Ned has an overweight southern lawyer named Wallace Brady (guest-starred by Larry Hagman) at his side. The guy is not really outright evil, but opposes Lisa and greatly supports creationism, not to mention he's not afraid of manipulating the audience at the courtroom with a cute baby deer (Bambi apparently) by claiming evolution took his mother away, with the intent of siding people against Lisa.

* ''Film/FreedomOnMyMind'': A stock footage newsreel shows a fat double-chinned sheriff in a white shirt blocking entrance to a county courthouse where voter registrations are accepted. This causes a moment of conflict between the white and black civil rights activists. The white kids from all over Yankeeland laugh at the stereotypical newsreel. The black activists who are native to Mississippi get angry, pointing out that this is all deadly serious.

* Another very young example is [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Gideon]] [[EnfanteTerrible Gleeful]]. He's ten years old and his suit is baby blue, but he's chubby, pig-like, has an impressive Southern drawl, is a CorruptHick and a [[TroublinglyUnchildlikeBehavior villain through and through.]]
