* ''Music/KidsPraise'': Charity Churchmouse is simultaneously a mouse and a gospel singer. She lampshades this at one point:
--> '''Psalty''': My ''dog'' is flying the plane?!
--> '''Charity''': I'm a mouse. What's the difference?
** Risky Rat, the go-to villain for the series, also appears to be this. In his visual appearances, he's covered in fur and has a tail.

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 have animalistic heads, tails, and sometimes hanglasses) a formal attire and excellent fighting skills. One might expect that Pekoms was a human who ate a lion Zoan fruit and stays in the hybrid form, but no. He's a human-like lion who ate a ''turtle'' Zoan fruit.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* One British lottery has a fox-man as a mascot.
* Alexandr and Sergei from ''Advertising/CompareTheMeerkat''.
* Several ''Advertising/Orangina'' ads feature anthropomorphs having a dance party. In their underclothes. For some reason.
* The Symbicort commercials mainly have wolves in the animated segments. Could be a factor that they are all [[{{Animorphism}} anthropomorphic wolfified versions]] of the elderly man and his friends and family in the commercials.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''
** Meowth of the Team Rocket trio taught himself "human talk" and how to stand on his hind legs, all for the love of a female Meowth named Meowzie who said that a human could do more for her than anything he could (as in, the food, housing and adoration), only to be rejected as now she considers him a freak.
** In [[Manga/TheElectricTaleOfPikachu one manga adaptation]], a story arc centers around the kitten of the very same Meowzie; she's found in a Poké Ball the gang purchases (unable to get captured herself, the mother pops her kitten into an unsold ball to ensure that whoever finds her will give her a good home). When Team Rocket, and thus Meowth, come around making trouble, Meowth meets this kitten and instantly sees her mother in her face and shining coin. Then she tells him it's creepy how he acts like he's a human. Oh heartbreak.
** Mewtwo seems quite human-like, but his psychic powers make that easy. In Manga/PokemonSpecial, he actually has Blaine's DNA and is thus a HalfHumanHybrid.
* In Creator/StudioGhibli's ''Anime/PorcoRosso'' (The Crimson Pig) the main protagonist is a pig, or more exactly a "pig-headed" human as he has the complete anatomy of a stout person except for the head. He is the only one of his type and lives among a human society who, while aware of his difference, don't find it bizarre and sometimes openly point it out. It's stated that he somehow became a BalefulPolymorph, given that there
are humanoid pictures (and a flashback) showing him in human form.
* ''Anime/PrincessTutu'''s Mr. Cat looks exactly as his name implies, and occasionally meows and cleans himself with his paws, but is otherwise a marriage-obsessed ballet instructor. While he is the most prominent one and has the most screen time, there are other guest characters that also fall under this trope.
* ''Manga/ShirokumaCafe'' is pretty much about this, as well as their interactions with humans.
** Inverted with Mr. Shoebill from Episode 8. He does not talk or act anthropomorphosized, but he is still sentient as the Funny Animal characters and is the editor in chief of a local food magazine.
** Is lampshaded in one episode where a nameless human (Nicknamed Mr. Necktie) visits from out of town. And is bewildered that animals can walk and talk and tries to study them. (Despite it's been shown that Funny Animals are
everywhere else).

* Very common in BritishComics. Examples include Biffo the Bear and Big Eggo from ''ComicBook/TheBeano'', Korky the Cat from ''ComicBook/TheDandy'', Mickey the Monkey from ''The Topper'' and ''ComicStrip/RupertBear''.
* DC Comics' ''ComicBook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew'', which contained several {{Continuity Nod}}s to the other Funny Animal comics DC published.
* Mr. Tawky Tawny is a very civilized version of this in the original ''[[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]''. His origin has varied over the years, but he's generally pretty cheerful about being a humanoid tiger living among humans.
* Conversely, Marvel's Comicbook/HowardTheDuck is pretty grouchy about being "trapped in a world he never made!" and is mostly just trying to get by among us weird hairless apes.
* Finally, Looney Leo from ''Comicbook/AstroCity'' is a direct [[{{Expy}} expy]] of Tawky Tawny. A Golden Age theatrical cartoon character brought to life by a mad scientist's machine, he's had a rough time of it, but seems to be getting by okay these days.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}'', species is purely aesthetic.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' comics, the Sixth Doctor's companion Frobisher is drawn to look like this kind of character, though he's technically a shapeshifter who chooses to take the form of a funny anthropomorphic penguin most of the time.
* An early example is ''ComicStrip/KrazyKat'', running from 1913 to 1944.
* One of the earliest known funny animal characters would have to be [[https://en.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The title character from ''Animation/BlackCatDetective''. If Creator/SamuelLJackson were a cat, then he would also apparently be a Chinese police officer.
* Kero the Guardian Beast from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''.
* ''Anime/CatSoup'': The cats have human characteristics but you have to stop and wonder if at least one of them really is processing the world around them.
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Gorilla]] from ''Manga/CromartieHighSchool''.
* ''Manga/DamekkoDoubutsu'' takes this to it's logical extreme with the characters looking like humans in costumes. [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom It never actually comes up in the series]].
* There's a couple examples in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', which stick out like sore thumbs among the overwhelmingly human/space alien cast. Notable characters include Oolong, an anthropomorphic pig, Karin, a cat, and Puar, a shapeshifting cabbit (cat/rabbit mashup). Also, at one time it was shown the president of Earth was a dog. 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.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'''s Exceed race (including Happy, Carla, and Panther Lily) are creatures that look like cats but behave like people. They can even inherently use magic, making them wizards like any other human.
* Tama from ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler''. He speaks perfect Japanese, can walk on two legs, has a degree in economics and is a qualified boiler room operator. Hayate is the only person who knows he can do it, however; to the rest of the cast he is just a lovable, oafish and above-average intelligent tiger (or 'big cat'). He's also spoken in front of Wataru. When confronted about speaking in front of others he says something about not wanting to shatter the girls' (Maria and Nagi) dreams.
* [[WeaselMascot Chamo]] in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', an ermine with a suspicious attraction for [[MarsNeedsWomen human girls]]. Most definitely a human mage that was slapped with the Academy's [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment very specific punishment]] for breaking TheMasquerade. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v01/c001/54.html The punishment is explained]] by Negi himself.

** Tony Tony Chopper, a gullible reindeer doctor. {{Justified|Trope}} in that he ate the Hito Hito no Mi (Human-Human fruit), which gave him human intelligence; before that, he was an ordinary ([[AllOfTheOtherReindeer albeit blue-nosed]]) reindeer.
** Bepo, an apologetic, self-conscious polar bear. Whenever he's aware of people who are surprised at the fact that he can speak, he'll get depressed, hold his head down in shame, and apologize to them.
** When Pappagu the starfish was young, he mixed up the word ''hitode'' (the Japanese word for "starfish") with ''hito'' (a Japanese word for "human"), so he thought he was human. By the time he realized he was a starfish, he had already learned how to speak like a human. He has also created the successful "Criminal" clothing line.
** Pekoms, one of [[Characters/OnePieceTheFourEmperors Big Mam's]] subordinates is a lion, with little eyes (which he counsel behind sunglasses) a formal attire and excellent fighting skills. One might expect that Pekoms was a human who ate a lion Zoan fruit and stays in the hybrid form, but no. He's a human-like lion who ate a ''turtle'' Zoan fruit.
