character: My Wife and Kids

My Wife and Kids ‘Thru Thick and Thin’

In the episode ‘Thru Thick and Thin’ Michael, reacts badly to the weight gained by his wife, Janet: suddenly self conscious about her body image, Janet has a dream in which Michael and their three children are fat and fight over food.

The eldest daughter Claire Kyle (Jennifer Freeman) not only has a fat face and fat suit but an exposed fat stomach.

The makeup

Lyssa Baumert was the credited makeup artist.

The fat makeups were by Kevin Haney and Steve Prouty and must have been an interesting challenge: four fat makeups from headcast to application in eight days with the one day of filming subject to the restricted working hours for children!
