In animation, sometimes a FunnyAnimal who doesn't wear any clothing will as gag; the fur that covers their bodies shown as a removable suit. This can be revealed in a few ways; perhaps a [[NonFatalExplosions Non Fatal Explosion]] goes off, leaving our character in AshFace and furless, with only GoofyPrintUnderwear on. Or, the character can remove their fur voluntarily by using a zipper that was never there before. It's almost always PlayedForLaughs. This can also provide a loophole around NonHumansLackAttributes, hence the character will usually react in embarrassment after their fur has been removed. This also almost always tends to be non-canon, as the characters who remove their fur will also have been shown bathing or showering without having to do this. Of course, [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow there are some exceptions]].

Both variants can also work with feathers, or more rarely, scales and skin. Not to be confused with PrettyInMink or FurAndLoathing, though any of those might be referenced for the [[RuleOfFunny sake of humor]].

** This is actually a bit more sticky; some Pokémon are specifically stated as wearing clothing (such as the PowerLimiter belt worn by Machoke or the belts that Sawk and Throh make themselves out of vines), but others, while ''looking'' like they wear clothing, are more ambiguous on whether or not they ''are'' clothing. One of the more famous examples of this is the debate over whether the "pants' Lucario wears are part of its fur or not.

Machoke was largely considered to wear belts but WordOfGod confirms that they're nude.

** In the recent Paul Rudish shorts Minnie is in her classic, topless design with the skirt. There are a few jokes that her fur is a shirt.

* BugsBunny from ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' was often portrayed with "pockets" on his furry thighs, that he'd keep his hands in or pull carrots out of.

** In Clampett's "The Wise-Quacking Duck", DaffyDuck prepares to get into the oven by performing a strip tease routine with his feathers. And, yes, he wears boxers.

* Inverted with the lawn ornaments' "hats" and "clothing" from ''GnomeoAndJuliet''. This is most noticable during the scene where Tybalt smashes Benny's hat off his head.

* As revealed in [[PixarShorts ''Tokyo Mater'']], a car's paint actually serves as its clothing, so not wearing paint at all is considered to be the automobile equivalent of nudity. * YakkityYak's fur coat is taken literally. * Blackarachnia's helmet from ''TransformersAnimated'' is actually revealed near the end of the episode "Predacons Rising" to be an actual helmet, unlike those of the other Transformers.

* ''{{Garfield}}'' [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1981&addr=810212 ripped his "cat suit"]] when he tried to pick up a chocolate covered peanut. He then said he needed a bigger one.

* Despite the quote at the top of the page, Brian from FamilyGuy is a complete subversion of this trope; the aforementioned "pockets" incident seems to be a one-off joke, seeing as in a recent episode, he confirms, "I ''am'' nude, I'm just covered in fur." * Parodied in [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/1988-04-10 this]] strip of USAcres. Lanoline and Roy roll back their sleeves, before realizing that they don't have sleeves and they just stripped the wool and feathers from their arms, painfully.

* One gag in ''ComicStrip/LeonardLeGenie'' had the cat stripped naked after the disciple catches him. He angrily asks for his "clothes" back and puts his fur back on before resuming the chase. * Webcomic example: in ''WebComic/SabrinaOnline'', Sabrina is apparently wearing pants that make her look like she's not wearing any pants, because it blends into her fur.
