* Bethany and Bob from ''WebAnimation/GameDogs''. This gets outright surreal in [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/game-dogs/1499-Episode-Eight-Jennifer episode 8]] when Jennifer mentions Bethany's shoes -- after we just saw Bethany walk through the door barefoot. [[MindScrew And the punchline is that they're out of style]]. Judging from Bethany's reaction to the remark ("Oh... I see what you did there"), Jennifer intended it as a StealthInsult.

* A great deal of anthro/furry artists on the web always draw their characters barefoot, even if they're otherwise dressed perfectly normally, and even in situations where going barefoot is inadvisable (like, say, in snow). Listing specific artists would likely quadruple the length of the list, however.
** The trope is very rarely lampshaded, and often times not even ''noted''; that is, it's not uncommon for a character's reference sheet to depict the character barefoot, even in multiple different costumes, but even if it goes into great detail about the character's wardrobe preferences, their preferred footwear ([[DoesNotLikeShoes or preference to go barefoot]]) is never brought up.

{{Funny Animal}}s have differing levels of clothing, sometimes even between different characters in the same work. You've got your {{Accessory Wearing Cartoon Animal}}s, who are basically naked except for one or two token items. There are also {{Half Dressed Cartoon Animal}}s, who wear a shirt ''or'' pants, but not both. There are even {{Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal}}s who have complete outfits. And then there's the subject of this article--cartoon animals who are ''almost'' fully clothed by human standards, but who, for whatever reason, go barefoot. (Or bare-pawed if you want to get technical.)
