* Steggy from the ''WesternAnimation/ChipAndDaleRescueRangers'' episode "Prehysterical Pet" is supposed to be an alien ''Stegosaurus'', but he looks more like a bizarre dragon creature with backplates and a spiked tail instead.

*** Notably, there was an old CBBC puppet mascot called OtisTheAardvark, who looked more like an aardvark than Arthur ever did. The original Arthur's nose points downward, whereas Otis' nose sticks straight out like that of a real aardvark. Otis himself even commented on this, opining that Arthur looked more like a hamster.

* The titular Aardvark from ''WesternAnimation/TheAntAndTheAardvark'' doesn't look very much like an aardvark, having [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife blue fur]], a long snout more like that of an anteater's than an actual aardvark's, and long angular bent ears.
** Even more so in ''Pink Panther and Pals''. This time the Aardvark's snout is curved upwards like an elephant's and his tail is shortened.

* 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.



* Iwao Takamoto intentionally designed WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo to only vaguely resemble a Great Dane. He consulted a breeder of Great Danes and subverted many of the usual physical features for RuleOfFunny.

* Big Mitch from the 2007 remake of ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle'' is supposed to be a marmoset, but his yellow mane and fur make him look more like a golden lion tamarin. However, this may be because golden lion tamarins are also known as golden marmosets.

* Big Mitch from the 2007 remake of ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle'' is supposed to be a marmoset, but his yellow mane makes him look more like a golden lion tamarin. Also, he's much larger than a real marmoset (marmosets are known for being the smallest primates, most being small enough to fit in a human hand).

** Buzz's ''Pteranodon'' form looks nothing like the real animal. For starters, he has a slightly longer tail, two small wing-claws instead of three (though he sometimes has three claws in some scenes), and a hooked bill.
