* ''WesternAnimation/PigsIsPigs'' features the cute, tiny, but unrepentantly gluttonous young piglet named Piggy, and he dreams he's been captured by a mad scientist who force feeds him for an entire day. When it's all over, he can barely walk or even speak, and just as he's about to escape, he can't resist more food. Once he takes a big bite, he explodes into several bloodless chunks before waking up.

Largely a DiscreditedTrope, as it was mostly born from an UrbanLegend that eating too much would make a person explode, then evolved to other forms of humans popping from overfilling. However it is still sometimes used in works that are not going for realism, and is a timeless favourite as a ScareEmStraight [[LiesToChildren cautionary tale]] against [[SevenDeadlySins Gluttony]].
