Childhood Obesity Fat Kids Are Cute
From 500 Pound Peep
"Willa Wonka comparisons, I had the thought when I saw part of the old Willy Wonka film recently, that Augustus Gloop was barely fat! This first kid would barely register on anyone's mind as "fat" maybe just a little large today but I remembering the 1970s watching this movie with a class, he was seen as horribly fat!"
This proves my point. Fat kids are cute. The original Augustus Gloob from the Gene Wilder version of Willy Wonka was practically an anorexic bean pole and a poor representation of a fat kid. Today's Augustus Gloop in the Johnny Depp version of Willy Wonka is the proper representation of a young fatling.
