    I'd like this thread to be a place for people to share the known episodes of past and present TV shows, as well as movies that feature BBW's, SSBBW's, BHM's and SSBHM's prominently in story content or themes.

    No show is taboo in this thread. So even WLS episodes are safe to mention. Just do us all the favor when you mention something, and try to post a link to a wikipage, or imdb page about the media you are bringing to the forum. As a suggestion, try to add specifics, like episode numbers, actor names, etc.

    Lets show some support for plus-sized media programming, whether the end results were welcomed or not.

    The obvious current show imo is "This is Us" - because it actually has a SSBBW as one of the two female leads, which still is really unusual.

    Is this meant to refer mainly to shows with real people, or do cartoons count?

    If real, I remember the Drew Carey show featuring fat people prominently, and in addition to being one himself, Drew also dated one for a while, in, I thought, a sadly-realistic way.

    If cartoons count, there is, of course, the Simpsons and Family Guy, South Park, Fat Albert, and a whole slew of side characters and one-shot episodes, which feature a character or characters gaining weight temporarily, though there's always a note of tragedy to those episodes, when they lose the weight at the end.

    There is the episode of CSI where a BBW accidentally smothers a guy during the course of the Vegas bash.

    Live Action, cartoons. Nearly anything is fair game. I loved the Drew Carey show btw.

    For safety's sake, although you can include characters from kid's media; Ursula from Little Mermaid, Constance from Monster house. I would avoid using child actors. Finding examples of them as adult actors would be preferred; Lori Beth Denberg from Dodgeball.

    There was another TV show. I don't remember the name of it. Might have been Homicide Life on the Street, but maybe not that show.

    There was an episode I believe it started with a crime scene investigation, recovering a dead body of a man who had been suffocated in his sleep. His wife, an ssbbw, was accused of manslaughter from accidentally rolling over onto his head.

    I don't remember specifics at all, other than one scene where she was talking to paramedics or a medical examiner who was pleading with her to lose weight, and showed her a model heart. He/She said "this is a model of your heart, and it can't handle your weight." She grabbed the model, threw on the ground and stepped on, shattering it, and then said smugly "I guess it can't".

    I have no clue where to begin looking for this show or this episode. Anyone remember anything like this?
