* 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.

* ''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.

* When ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' needs a non-anthropomorphic animal, the usual choice is to use jellyfish as bees, and there's never been an anthropomorphic jellyfish. Equally consistent, and equally arbitrary, scallops take the place of birds, snails like Gary behave like cats, and deep-sea worms act like dogs.

* The classic BRB International animated adaptation of ''AroundTheWorldIn80Days'', ''WesternAnimation/AroundTheWorldWithWillyFog'', avoids this in some interesting ways. For starting, all animals are either sapient and anthropomorphic or neither. All the animals that are sapient are mammals and most (with very few exceptions) are rodents, carnivores, pigs and primates, which are never non sapient (and so there are no pet dogs or cats or any known equivalent). Horses, camels and elephants are never sapient and are used for transport.

--->'''Sue Ellen''': Neither one of you really cares about being a vegetarian. You're just usng it as an excuse to fight with each other. You want to know why I gave up eating meat? Because there are some animals whom I consider friends, so I lost my taste for eating them. Frankly, they are a lot better friends than some of the people I know.

** A later episode explains how this works, featuring a chicken farm run by a family of FunnyAnimal chickens, with the livestock acting like normal chickens but still looking anthropomorphic (and apparently enjoying things like movies and Foozball). The difference between 'friend' animals and 'food' animals is that the food animals are injected with hormones that keep them from developing mentally, so that 'there is absolutely no moral grey area'.

** In one episode two of the most posters are "Kung-Fu Koala" and "The Ram Pack". While they could be in-universe FunnyAnimal flicks, they could also be films referencing the actors species.

* Played with in ''DMynaLeagues'', where after losing a high stakes arcade game to an anthropormoprhic Raccoon, they have a rematch playing a Davy Crocket-themed game. The Raccoon scoffs at the childish game, and agrees to play, but suffers a nervous breakdown when he see the Raccoon-skin hats the player characters wear.

* ''Literature/MaxAndRuby'' takes place in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals, or more specifically one full of FunnyAnimal rabbits. Despite this several of Ruby's dolls are of humans.
