** "For Scentimental Reasons": As in a number of other WarnerBros. shorts, a black [[CuteKitten cat]] (later christened Penelope Pussycat) disguises herself as a [[SmellySkunk skunk]] to frighten away her persecutors; this, of course, backfires spectacularly when it attracts AbhorrentAdmirer Pepe le Pew.

If you are a duck on the make, or a RascallyRabbit trying to escape the hunters, or just a [[CanineCompanion dog]] that thinks it's "cute" to [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DogInTurkeysClothing.jpg wear a turkey costume]] (or, at least, has an [[JerkAss owner]] who does), you have a good chance of turning into an '''Laconic/AssInALionSkin'''. This involves one animal (usually a FunnyAnimal) that attempts to [[DisguiseTropes pass as]] an animal of an ''entirely different species'', not simply of a different style or level of reality -- [[WesternAnimation/QuickDrawMcGraw Augie Doggie]] pretending to be TopCat, but ''not'' Augie Doggie pretending to be Doggie Daddy, Franchise/ScoobyDoo, WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}}, [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Pluto]], or [[HeroicDog Rin Tin Tin]]. Note also that the trope specifically excludes an animal dressed as or imitating a human being (or ''vice versa'').

* One of Nick's cons in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' involves his fennec partner Finnick dressing up in an elephant costume. It's not intended to be a believable disguise, but it's instead meant to garner sympathy from people by pretending that the adult Finnick is actually an adorable child with whimsical dreams of growing up to be an elephant. The trope is played much straighter during a gag near the end of the film, where a wolf police officer is preparing for an undercover mission by [[WolfInSheepsClothing donning a sheep costume]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'': Warren T. Rat (actually a [[CatsAreMean cat]] himself) dresses as a [[YouDirtyRat rat]] to fool the mice into buying into his protection racket against the cats. Oddly, he starts out freakishly small for a cat to make this work, but once he is revealed to be a cat he scales up to a normal cat size.
