* ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'' has an episode where [[TheDolittle Eliza]] is trying to convince a stoat not to eat an Arctic hare, to no avail; the episode eventually ends with the pair running away to continue their war. Eliza discusses this with her father, who notes that they are animals, after all--stoats eat meat, and you can't convince them not to.

** The inhabitants of the Candy Kingdom in the Land of Ooo are sentient candy. Every building and the streets are made out of candy too.

** The inhabitants of the Candy Kingdom in the Land of Ooo are sentient candy. Every building and the streets are made out of candy too. This is addressed in the first Susan Strong episode--after Finn shows her that she can eat the sidewalk, she tries to eat a passing resident. Finn stops her, explaining that she can't eat a Candy ''Person.'' Unfortunately, she assumes that she can eat everyone except ''that'' person and brings her tribe to attack the city.



** In "Too Old", Bubblegum and Finn go to a diplomatic dinner at Castle Lemongrab, where everyone is a lemon, and the only food served is lemons. Then again, the Earl is kind of a nutjob, and [[FatBastard at this point]] has no trouble eating the ''sapient'' [[ImAHumanitarian lemons]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' takes place in a world populated by humans and PettingZooPeople. One episode shows a chicken farmer who is himself a chicken, and his livestock are [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4xytsouUYo just as anthropomorphic]] as himself, but as he explains they are injected with hormones at birth that make them stupid. In a previous episode, a cow waitress was shown angrily serving steak to a customer.

* A stunningly brutal aversion in a one-off gag on ''WesternAnimation/TuffPuppy''. When looking into Kitty's past, they see her sixteenth birthday where her mother hired a very sentient (yet normal sized) mouse magician, Kitty ate him without even a second thought, understandably {{squick}}ing out the partygoers.

* One of Cinar's ''The Real Story of...'' cartoons features a city inhabited by sheep, wolves and dogs. A dog police detective one of the sheep approaches a dog police detective's (yes, the detective is TheHero) lunch, and the detective shouts at him to leave his shepherd pie alone. The sheep, meanwhile, is positively sick from smelling it.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'' largely avoided this trope until ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard''. The cartoon is about Simba's son (a lion cub) and his friends (several who are carnivores or omnivores) protecting the Pridelands. More than once this involves "saving" prey from predators. Despite this, the main characters eating other animals is acknowledged. One episode even revolves around the fact Fuli (a cheetah) hunts alone, though we never actually see her catching her prey. The Lion Guard frequently interact with prey animals however they don't seem scared of them. To add to the confusion, sometimes they speak, other times they only make animal noises.

** "The Potato" has Darwin giving up eating potatoes due to thinking it is offending Idaho. It turns Idaho didn't mind because apparently potato-people are not the same as edible potatoes.

* The ending of ''[[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving]]'' has Snoopy and Woodstock, the latter of whom is a bird, sitting down to have a turkey dinner. The bonus feature on the special's new DVD release has Bill Melendez admitting even he thought that scene was rather morbid. It ''really'' doesn't help that on at least one occasion in the comic, Woodstock and the other birds spent Thanksgiving hiding at Snoopy's place because they were terrified of becoming Thanksgiving dinners themselves.
