** One of the episodes, "Who Bopped Bugs Bunny?", involved Babs and Buster trying to solve Bugs Bunny's mysterious disappearance. In the end the culprit is revealed to be Sappy Stanley, an elephant who competed and lost against Bugs Bunny in a parody of the UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s. Although he talks through his mouth depending on his mood, most of the time Stanley speaks straight from his trunk (complete with mouth), making him look more like an anteater than an elephant.

** Prunella is supposed to be a rat (like Mr. Ratburn), but her ears and hair make her look more like a poodle.
*** She may actually be a poodle, since Marc Brown Studios' Facebook page says she is. Oddly enough, she looks more like a rat in Brown's books, sporting a pair of sharp teeth that disappeared when she made the transition to television. The official ''Arthur'' website says she's a rat. It seems all we can say for sure is that Prunella looks confusing.

* Louis from ''WesternAnimation/{{Foofur}}'' is supposed to be a bulldog, but while his face and ears are like those of a real bulldog, his big bulky body would suggest otherwise.

* Rigby from ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' is supposed to be a North American raccoon, but strongly resembles a Crab Eating Raccoon or a Coati, both of which only have a short brown layer of fur, and more slender bodies. Crab Eating Raccoons are native to Costa Rica and South America and Coatis can be found in the Southwest US including Southern California. Rigby's lack of a proper face mask has been explained by the fact that he has [[ArtisticLicenseBiology huge cartoony eyes]], and is occasionally shown blinking where he has black eyelids. This is consistent with his more humanoid looking brother Don too. Rigby's lack of resemblance to his real life counterpart has been PlayedForLaughs on multiple occasions - he comments on the black circles around his eyes as being 'his thing', when he and Mordecai encounter realistic animal versions of themselves Rigby is drawn as a standard gray and black raccoon (present on a comic cover too), and in an early episode, one of the enemies says to him 'what are you supposed to be?'.
** Margaret is supposedly a robin, but looks just like a [[AnimalGenderBender male-colored]] cardinal.
** That ostrich and possum in "Replaced". The ostrich looks like a combless chicken. The possum looks more like a stripeless numbat.
