* Subverted with the crows in ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}''. They have black feathers, as per usual for crows, but they are friendly [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerks With Hearts Of Gold]] At first they appear to be jerks but still very cheerful and fun-loving. And after they befriend Dumbo, they also become very helpful, unlike many other unpleasant characters in the movie. The only thing played straight is that they have black feathers and are portrayed as ethnically black.
