* Diego in ''WesternAnimation/GoDiegoGo'' often has to help a prey animal evade a predator (the reasons aren't specified) though he's also helped predators to live, and has no qualms about anyone [[NoCartoonFish eating fish]]. In one episode, he helps a llama outrun a puma until he realizes that he personally knows the puma, and it's a ''"nice"'' puma who only wanted to borrow a book. The prey animals are always described as being "afraid of" their predators, but the idea of animals actually ''eating'' each other never comes up.

* ''WesternAnimation/WonderPets'' tends to go out of its way to avoid this issue entirely. No matter what animal the Pets save, they are given a gift of celery, implying that everyone eats celery. It got to the point where, in the Circus episode (which was already [[FurryConfusion plenty weird]]) a lion cub was seen eating ''nut cereal'' and celery.

* ''WesternAnimation/WonderPets'' tends to go out of its way to avoid this issue entirely. No matter what animal the Pets save, they are given a gift of celery, implying which makes sense given that everyone eats celery. It got to the point where, in Pets are a duck, a guinea pig, and a turtle, all of which are herbivores. But then there's the Circus episode (which was already circus episode, which in addition to its [[FurryConfusion plenty weird]]) other issues]], showed a lion cub was seen ''lion'' eating ''nut cereal'' and celery.

* ''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 mentally retarded. In a previous episode, a cow waitress was shown angrily serving steak to a customer.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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]].

* 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.
