* ''Literature/TheWildOnes'' features an entire city filled with animals who can talk, wear clothes, run shops, and even be part of a gang. Yet said city takes place within a much larger human city, and the animals frequently have to worry about traps the humans put out and getting captured by animal catchers.

* ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}'' is about a down-on-its-luck crime gang in Prohibition-era [[UsefulNotes/StLouis]]. Oh, and they're all anthropomorphic cats.

* In ''[[http://www.drunkduck.com/Harkovast/ Harkovast]]''every character is a talking animal person, with each nation being made up of a particular animal. The only possible exception is the Nameless, whose species is indeterminate at the moment due to their all covering armour and helmets.

* OlderThanRadio: ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogs_Playing_Poker Dogs Playing Poker]]'', sixteen paintings done over the course of 17 years (1893 to 1910) by by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge. The dogs don't play poker in some of them, but all of them feature Funny Animal dogs. These works have been parodies many times in modern fiction.

* ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'''s universe is populated by Funny Animals but it stands out in that they're still very obviously animals. The series is full of FurryReminder's, with the very premise subverting CarnivoreConfusion. Kevin and Kell are an inter-species couple (wolf and rabbit) in a world where it's normal for anthropomorphic animals to hunt other anthropomorphic animals.

** In 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.

* The penguins in ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'' are an odd case; at times they uncomfortably straddle the line between penguins who can talk and penguin-people.
* Brian Griffin of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' usually falls squarely into this category, albeit with occasional TalkingAnimal moments (particularly in the first run of the series, where they were more frequent).
* The chickens in ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' are difficult to categorise--the humans treat them just like any other chickens, but most of them wear at least one article of clothing and [[TheDitz the stupidest one]] is capable of knitting.
* The cast of ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' could be replaced by humans and it wouldn't make any difference at all. Well, except for Toby who is a dog.
* Disney's ''Disney/RobinHood''
* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''. In particular, the characters use their animal attributes in their fighting styles, like Crane's wings or Po's [[KevLard body fat]]. Tigress and Tai Lung come the closest to crossing over into PettingZooPeople, but they are still distinctly feline.

* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' both plays this straight and averts it with its main characters. Mordecai the bluejay might as well be a human, seeing as he doesn't eat like a bird, fly or do anything else birdlike. Rigby the [[RascallyRaccoon raccoon]], on the other hand, is shown to dig through trash and run on all fours, but otherwise acts almost as humanlike. ''Lampshaded'' in this conversation:

* Although some of them dip near-ish the TalkingAnimal end of the spectrum sometimes, the cast of TuffPuppy is essentially this. Although they retain some animal like mannerisms (Dudley, a dog, has a superhuman sense of smell and an unfortunate habit of chewing his own butt, and his partner Kitty loses all self-control and star whenever she sees a mouse or a ball of string
* ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' is straddles the line between this and TalkingAnimal, with a healthy dose of FurryConfusion for good measure. The main cast usually falls squarely into Funny Animal territory, though at times might slip into TalkingAnimal (Chip and Dale more than the others, as they will sometimes run on all fours like actual chipmunks. Monterey and Gadget almost never behave like actual mice). Most other rodents in the series are also portrayed fairly consistently as Funny Animal. Cats generally tread both sides, while dogs and almost everything else tend to be TalkingAnimal exclusively. FurryConfusion occurs with pretty much ''everything'', particularly [[NoCartoonFish fish]] and incidental or background characters.

* The main characters of ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'', They look like bears, they walk on four legs sometimes, and they live in a cave, but they otherwise act human. Most actual humans in the show don't see anything odd about this.
** 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.
