* There's a couple examples in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', which stick out like sore thumbs among the overwhelmingly human/space alien cast.
** Oolong, an anthropomorphic pig.
** Puar probably also counts. They only stick out if you never saw or read the original ''Manga/DragonBall'', which was a much more light-hearted series and almost overflowing with Funny Animals as secondary and tertiary characters. ''Manga/DragonBall'' was originally based on ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'', which had Zhu Bajie (known as "Cho Hakkai" in Japan and "Pig" or "Pigsy" in most English translations) and Sun Wukong (better known by his Japanese name "Son Goku") as two of the main characters-Oolong and Goku, only in their original forms.

** Notable that they are, in fact, recognized as bears since they befriend Chloe after she studies them for her college project on bears. They've also been known to act like wild bears under times of stress, such as when Grizz decides they need to become more primal.

They look partly humanoid and partly like their species, often they have either humanoid legs and non-humanoid torso, humanoid torso and non-humanoid legs, or look semi-humanoid all over. Many [[TopHeavyGuy top heavy]] bipedal animal characters are of the humanoid torso and non-humanoid legs variety. Females are depicted with human-like breasts fairly often.

** WesternAnimation/BugsBunny straddles the line between Funny Animal and Civilized Animal. He has been [[AnthropomorphicShift moving steadily towards the Funny Animal Camp over the years]]. In ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', he is almost completely a FunnyAnimal, with a large suburban house, a Prius, and a good income stream through royalties from his inventions. ''WesternAnimation/WabbitALooneyTunesProduction'' moves him back to being a CivilizedAnimal living in a hole in the ground.
