* TheTimeTravelersWife featured a geneticist experimenting on mice to make them time travel in order to figure out a cure, but there isn't much said or implied one way or the other about the morality of doing so.

* {{Ferngully}} doesn't just pack in enviromental issues - it shoves in the anti-animal-testing ones too, with the brutally-treated Batty Koda entering the "Batty Rap" which actually had some of the gorier imagery cut from it. Examples used in the song were mostly cosmetic, but the plot-affecting device was the radio antennae implanted in his head which sent him insane.

On the other hand, many dogs, cats, rats and other sentient creatures have suffered tremendously and died because of animal experimentation (sometimes for trivial reasons) when there may be [[http://www.aavs.org/researchProblems.html better scientific alternatives]]. Most modern laboratories and institutions establish an [[http://www.iacuc.org/aboutus.htm Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee]] to ensure that all animal testing is done responsibly and with a minimum number of animals used to gather good scientific data.

* The SAL project in ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' clearly involved cruelty to animals; the monkey test subject was let go after Judai's teacher and animal lover "convinced" its handlers to do so ("convinced" them by threatening to have them arrested, that is).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNimh'': The animation in the laboratory, and the effects of the concoction given to the rats and mice, are pretty nightmarish.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNimh'': The animation in the laboratory, and the effects of the concoction given to the rats and mice, are pretty nightmarish. Notably, the injections to which the animals are subjected are of a ''much'' larger volume than could ever be given to such rodents without killing them in RealLife, suggesting that the lab-flashbacks are subjective memory, not objective fact.
