When applied to Black characters, this carries a cargo of UnfortunateImplications. Exaggerated, oversized lips are a key element of {{Blackface}}, so having this trait appear on a Black-coded character can come across as racist minstrelsy whether intentional or not. This was common in [[TheThirties '30s']] and [[TheThirties '40s']] animated cartoons, which often used allusions to MinstrelShows as a ParentalBonus. See also AshFace for a similar gag.

* Gorgeous Gal in the ''WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker'' cartoon A Fine Feathered Frenzy. Since she is a bird there is a lipstick outline around her beak that can be viewed during a close-up. When she puckers up her lips are like a human's lips for comedic effect. At one point Gorgeous Gal appears in a bath and playfully blows bubbles at Woody and her lips are about the size of his face. Another time she rushes to kiss him with the full force of her lips and misses, kissing the wall. The lipstick mark she leaves on the wall is almost the size of Woody's entire body. Soon after that, she spots him while she is on a couch wearing a red low cut red dress, says "Hi baby," closes her eyes and gives him a giant sized duck face inviting him to kiss her. Woody doesn't smooch her enormous puckered lips and runs. Whenever Gorgeous Gal does manage to kiss Woody her lips are shown to be much bigger than the Woodpecker's as well.
