So, as I try to get some caffeine out of my system, I am watching Futurama. I think my favorite episode is "Tales of Interest." It is three acts of separate stories for each character. Bender the Robot wants to know what it would be like to be human. He gets his answer and he finds out that he becomes gorgeously fat. He learns the fun of eating and not having any remorse for it.
Also, on a side note in Fry's story, the best line of the entire show to me is "Amy, tend to the widow Pac-Man." This is after Pac-Man gets killed a la Centipede style.
That's all I got for right now. So I guess I will leave you with a question. What's your favorite most recent (that means can't choose "Pigs Is Pigs") cartoon involving male weight gain?

King Size Homer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King-Size_Homer) from The Simpsons was pretty good. "All my life I've been an obese man trapped inside a fat man's body."
Interesting that Futurama and the Simpsons were created by the same person, dontcha think?

Not that its a weight gain cartoon, but what about The Family Guy, Peter is great. With a nice FFA on his side oh how sweet his life must be.

Must admit I was surprised to hear there actually ARE women interested in male weight gain.
…Anyhow, to answer your question, two cartoons come to mind.
One’s a Looney Toon cartoon about a dog who bullies a cat and, I believe it was a mouse, to supply him with his daily steak, continuously molesting the cat because he “forgot the gravy”.
Then he thinks of this scheme to get enough money to buy a butcher’s shop, he succeeds, looks absolutely thrilled when he sees all the meat, sausages, etc.
Next you see him laying in a pet’s hospital, completely stuffed to the limit, with a satisfied grin on his face, while two doctors decide he is a “clear case of overeating”. The doctors leave, another door opens and the cat and mouse enter the room with a HUGE vat, they climb on the table, put a funnel in the dog’s mouth (while all he can do is say “No!... No!... No!...”), and while they start pouring the liquid into the funnel they sadistically say “this time we DIDN’T forget the gravy.”
Another cartoon that directly came to mind was a cartoon they once showed us at school during society class. This cartoon was probably meant to make us aware of the hunger in the world and make the fat people feel guilty about themselves. It was a no-words-just-music artistic kind of cartoon about a man who does his daily routine; go to work, have lunch, drive home, have dinner, but his lunches and dinners gradually become larger and larger. It starts with him using knife and fork, but then turns into him lifting the table and shoving the food into his mouth, multiple arms with forks and multiple mouths appearing all over his body, while you see him grow bigger and fatter. His whole life seems to become one obsession with food, at a certain moment it even comes to him “inhaling” his car.
In the end, he comes home, goes to bed, but he can’t get to sleep because his stomach hurts too much, so he goes to the kitchen, takes some pills, then starts “inhaling” the whole kitchen (fridge, oven, pots and pans included), he returns to bed, falls to sleep but gets this terrible nightmare of him falling out of bed, continue to fall (while you get to see all angles of his rotating fat, naked body), he eventually falls on the ground and sees himself surrounded by skinny, anorexic African children, who look at him with their large hungry eyes. He tries to get up, but he has become too fat, so in the end they attack him like a pack of wolves…
Funny how those kind of patronizing lessons can have the complete opposite effect on you… :D

I found this picture of Homer (it wasn't hard to find)
I like the South Park cartoon in wich Cartman uses "gain weight 4000" to gain some muscle mass, but all he gains is weight :)http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en/thumb/7/72/100px-Southpark_ep102_2.jpg
