Scooby Doo's Daphne Cursed to Lose What She Holds Most Dear - Her Figure

For readers who don't know, I'm the father of 3 young girls. This week I'll be discussing just a smattering of the weight bias teaching they're getting from the world around them. While I catch some of them, I'm sure there are many instances that I'm missing.
The movie is called, "Frankencreepy", and it's about a curse that leads the Scooby Doo crew to, as the specter puts it,
"lose what you hold most dear"
What's the most important thing in the world to Daphne?

Her figure.

And now she's cursed to be fat.


Take just a moment and imagine how watching this might make a pre-teen child with overweight or obesity feel about themselves.
