** "Duke and the Great Pie War" also includes regular apples along side the anthropomorphic blueberry. And pies. Lots of pies. This was addressed in the DVD commentary for this episode. When asked by fans whether or not the consumption of apples and other plants was cannibalism, the replied that it "didn't count" if the vegetable could not talk. Oh, okay.

** There are animals in the ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' world as well. Just don't ask how.

** In the episode (made later, I believe) that deals with the plagues of Egypt, the Nile turns to tomato juice. There's a short scene of Bob the Tomato seeing this and fainting.
** There are now WesternAnimation/VeggieTales branded tomato, cucumber, and so on seeds. Yes kids, now you can grow and eat half the cast!

** Interestingly, no one bats an eye at Lumpus (a ''moose'') and his love of meat, except when he attempted to eat a bird that was still alive. Hmmmm.

* ''WesternAnimation/WordWorld'' is just weird overall (technically, all the characters are talking ''words'') but it's worth a mention here because all of the major animal characters, down to the Ant, can speak -- except for one. If you guessed that the one animal who never talks and who acts like a normal animal is the dog, you've paid excellent attention to this page. There are also a few minor characters including non-talking sea creatures and a cow who is basically a LivingProp.

** The entire cast is made up of anthropomorphic farm animals. However, the sheep act like normal sheep. Except when they are alone, in which case they can talk to one another. Huh?

** In the original ''Arthur'' book series, the Tibble twins were ''humans''! They had to be the only humans in Elwood city, with the possible exception of their grandmother. Nobody aside from Marc Brown knows why; literally everyone else is a FunnyAnimal.

** And one episode shows that toys are alive and can talk to one another, ''a la'' ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''. To make things even more bizarre, said dog and baby can ''talk to the toys''. No, really, ''what''?

* One ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' gag that showed Spanky Ham's job as a hostage negotiator parodied this. The scene had Pluto taking Goofy hostage, demanding to be treated as another antropomorph, with clothes, a home, a job etc. In true [[BlackComedy DT fashion]], Pluto ended up shooting Goofy and then killing himself.

* The opening scene of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' involves a non-anthropomorphic seagull getting chased off by various bird-like people, including one who looks like a seagull.

** Also, one episode involves a wedding, in this case between two bunnies. One episode shows a future where Arthur, an Aardvark, is married to Francine, a Monkey, and as seen in "the Good, the Bad, & the Binky", D.W.'s friend Emily is a rabbit, who's parents are a female rabbit and a male monkey. You heard me. Although families in this series are generally all the same species. Children of InterspeciesRomance couples have mixed body features as well. For example Emily looks like a rabbit but has a monkey-ish nose.

** In one episode two of the movie posters are of "Kung-Fu Koala" and "The Ram Pack". While they could be in-universe FunnyAnimal flicks (which "Kung-Fu Koala" probably is, since it's a ''Kung-Fu Panda" parody), they could also be films referencing the actors species.

** There may also be elements of CarnivoreConfusion as to what the "krabby patties" are made of. Crab? This seems unlikely, as the store is owned by a talking crab. A (supposedly) false recipe once claimed it was plankton -- which many sea creatures actually eat-- as an orchestrated scare for the villainous Plankton. And then they imply in one episode that the patties ''are'' in fact made of crab. Mr. Krabs takes a bite of one and says, "So that's what I taste like." Ew.
*** Actually, Krabs was comparing himself to the patty, with an extra reference to it as old and wrinkly, "like that man over there." Still, it's a strange comment.

** To add to the confusion, there's even a pair of sentient parasites named [[ShowWithinAShow Bloaty and Squirmy]] who live a sitcom-like existence ''on'' the non-sentient Spunky.

*** Needless to say, however, ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' did their version on what the secret ingredient is and parodied it a-la ''SoylentGreen''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Babar}}'', a show about literal {{Civilized Animal}}s making a human-like society, Lady Rataxes (a rhino) has a pet warthog. The weirdest part is that a warthog ambassador can be seen in some episodes.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' a series about an anthropomorphic world of PettingZooPeople several episodes deal with the main characters transporting other non-anthropomorphic animals including birds and kangaroos. One episode even have the main characters actually buying a pig (and the pig vendor is another porcine, a Hippo).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' features animals who [[AnimalTalk talk]] but otherwise mostly act like wild animals. Animals hunting others is discussed frequently and the Lion Guard frequently has to stop hyenas from hunting animals (supposedly because they kill too many and are thus disrupting the 'Circle of Life'). Gazelles are frequently a target of hyenas but they don't speak. Zebras speak but gazelle only make animal noises.
