Why are couples portrayed this way in television and cartoons?
King of Queens - Carrie (skinny and attractive) Doug (idiotic and overweight)
The Simpsons - Marge (skinny and attractive) Homer (idiotic and overweight)
The Cleveland Show - Donna (average build and attractive) Cleveland (slightly overweight)
I just notice that, in some shows (obviously not all) are portrayed with an overweight and idiotic husband. Why?
