In the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom, Funny Animals aren't as commonly seen as PettingZooPeople. This is usually because Funny Animals keep their animalistic-shape and lack a few human mannerisms, whereas PettingZooPeople have a mostly humanoid body frame and have full-on human mannerisms. Sometimes, characters who are Funny Animals in their {{canon}} will be made Petting Zoo People in fanart, particularly if the artists want to [[RuleThirtyFour eroticize them]]. Nevertheless, Funny Animals are fairly popular among members of the fandom, especially to those who like their animal characters to look a little more accurate.

Frequently overlaps with AnimalSuperheroes and IntelligentGerbil. May live in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals. May suffer from CarnivoreConfusion and FurryConfusion. See PettingZooPeople for characters who are even more anthropomorphized, and CivilizedAnimal and TalkingAnimal for those who are less anthropomorphized.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''WesternAnimation/JoeAndJack'', Jack is a cat, but walks and behaves just like a boy and in practical terms seems more like a brother of Joe of about the same age, or maybe a little younger. His character model even looks a lot like Joe, except different coloring, whiskers, cat ears and a tail. Enhancing the resemblance is that Joe wears a full-body costume of an animal all the time.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Website/CollegeHumor'': {{Deconstructed}} and {{played for laughs}} with "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbs0vSwCWs8 Narnia Dogs Can't Stand]]", where the titular dogs not only try to stand but do other human things even though it's really unnecessary. When the children aren't looking they go right back to doing things like sniffing each other's butts or licking themselves.

* ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest''. They're all humans with rabbit ears (or cat ears).

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' the basic premise is that human beings never existed and mammals evolved to develop sapience, bipedal locomotion, opposable thumbs, and the ability to speak, ending up as civilized animals with very human-like lifestyles and society but still drawing much more heavily on their animalistic traits than is usually seen with this trope.

* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'':
** {{Deconstructed}} by Rocket Raccoon. He's a walking, talking raccoon that can stand on two legs and hold heavy weaponry [[spoiler: because he had multiple painful experiments performed on him]].
** Also [[spoiler:ComicBook/HowardTheDuck]] at the stinger.

On the SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism, these fall somewhere between the CivilizedAnimal (Which has some anthropomorphic traits, but still has the lifestyle and priorities of a wild animal) and the PettingZooPerson (who might as well be human).
