* The animals of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' are pretty easy to identify, even when their features are changed or exaggerated for artistic license. Shifu is another matter, and unless you've [[AllThereInTheManual read the guidebooks]] you might guess anything from raccoon dog (face, tail) to lemur (hands, ears) [[labelnote:*]]non-native to China[[/labelnote]]. Creator/DustinHoffman, who plays Shifu, went for, "I don't know... some kind of raccoon?" He's officially a red panda, but since red pandas look like [[https://www.google.es/search?q=red+panda&tbm=isch this]] and Shifu looks like [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shifu_5_4093.png this]], you can understand his confusion.

* By as early as the short "The New Car", WesternAnimation/FlipTheFrog was using two distinct designs between his piano-playing introduction and the character acting in the show proper, the latter barely resembling a frog. Later shorts which changed the intro to match the new design just made his species more ambiguous.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'': Bonkers D. Bobcat hardly looks like a real bobcat; his tail is long rather than a stub, his snout is long like a dog's, and his ears are so thin and long they're almost like antenna. At least he has downward-facing cheek tufts.

** Miss Simian is supposed to ''some'' kind of primate, but her specific combination of features don't match any real species. She most closely resembles a chimpanzee with a tail.

** Viewers would be hard-pressed to recognize [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Smaug]] as a dragon if he weren't referred to as such in-universe. Instead he looks more like a winged serpentine cat thing, barely resembling his conception in [[Literature/TheHobbit the book]].
