The Sin of Gluttony, in my opinion, is possibly the most accepted by the Christian faith. In modern society, it is much more common to see people gorging themselves on multitudes of food without worrying about succumbing to a deadly sin, although the Christian faith deems that our ability to control our physical appetite is a an analogy. If we are unable to control our eating habits, it is unlikely that we can control other habits such as lust or greed. Gluttony is considered a selfish desire in the Bible, and is therefore an undesired characteristic among good men and women. Disney films do not often have characters that are blatantly gluttonous, although there are characters that do eat more than the other characters in the films.
Gluttony : over-consumption to the point of waste
Winnie the Pooh and his main desire
Although the idea for the film did not originally come from Walt Disney, Winnie the Pooh is a film about a very gluttonous bear. Disney's rendition of the original novel perfectly personifies the sin of gluttony in Pooh bear. This character, although not evil, does part-take in one of the deadly sins, but Disney fans love him anyway. Winnie the Pooh is always looking for honey, he craves it to a point that he is willing to endanger himself, whether it be getting stuck in a doorway or being chased by an entire swarm of bees.
Small Roles With Big Appetites
Gus from the Disney film Cinderella. If he would just leave that last piece of cheese.
Although there are few main characters within Disney films that exhibit gluttony, there are more minor characters that love to eat to the point of gluttony. In the Disney film Cinderella, the mouse named Gus loves to eat. The audience is first introduced to this character when he gets himself stuck in a mouse trap, attempting to get food. He later gets himself in trouble with a cat appropriately named Lucifer due to his gluttonous desire for cheese. Another example of a lesser character in Disney films that has a large appetite is Miko from Walt Disney's Pocahontas. Miko is always using his cunning abilities to get food, whether it be from a friend or someone that wishes to cause him harm. If characters like Gus and Miko could just stop eating the food they crave, they would not get into dangerous situations that threaten their well-being. Although the Christian notion of the deadly sin of gluttony suggests that an ability to control one's appetite also suggests lack of control in other areas, these Disney characters are pure of heart. The only thing these characters want is a good meal, and although they are willing to put themselves in dangerous situations to over-consume, they will do anything for their friends.
