* At the end of one episode of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', the eponymous wallaby ends up getting a sunburn after an afternoon at the beach, which makes it bizarre [[FridgeLogic considering the fact that he's from Australia]].

* Badger from the [[Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad Disney adaptation of]] TheWindInTheWillows is furless with a light human-like skintone and a white beard, but still has the facial markings of a badger. Badger in the original story and and in other adaptations, on the other hand, looks slightly less anthropomorphic, had a tail, and was furred like a normal badger.

* The animal looking characters in ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' do not have fur.

to:

* The animal looking characters in ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' do not have fur. It could be justified in that they're aliens.
* The rats from ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'' are all depicted with fur that is colored like human flesh. Exceptions would be two of the evil Toad's henchrats, Whitey, who has white fur due to him being an albino rat; and Thimblenose Ted, a zombie-like rat [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin with a thimble on his nose]], who has gray
fur.



* Many characters from the SonicTheHedgehog series play with this trope to some degree or another. Many of the characters have apricot human-skintone looking muzzles, bellies, and arms and Rouge the Bat has apricot human-skintone body and muzzle and a white head.

It's left vague if Sonic has peach colored fur or if that's his skin, though certain models imply the latter.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', Sue Ellen the PettingZooPerson cat has red hair and solid peach fur over the rest of her body, but Nemo the normal pet cat is black and white with a bicolor pattern.
** Basically all the anthro animals are human skintone colored or otherwise solid colored, whether or not they have a head of hair, facial hair, or human-like body hair.

* The FunnyAnimal bears in TheBerenstainBears are all light brown furred, but the normal animals tend to have various markings.
* The FunnyAnimal pigs in {{Olivia}} are pink or have various human-like skintones, but no head of hair, but the normal animals (except Edwin the black furred pet cat of Olivia) tend to have various markings.
* Gadget Hackwrench of ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' is peach-colored and has no real hints of fur on her body at all, whereas WesternAnimation/ChipAndDale and Monterey Jack have markings on their fur.
** But she does have a full head of strawberry-blond EightiesHair.
* In the two Franchise/AlvinAndTheChipmunks cartoons, the Chipmunks and the Chipettes are both peach colored, but the Chipettes look like they just have peach colored skin and [[FurryFemaleMane have human-like head hair]]. The Chipmunks still look like they have fur, however.
** Contrast that to [[LiveActionAdaptation the two live action movies]] where they are [[AnthropomorphicShift less anthropomorphic]] and have fur and markings more like that of normal chipmunks.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' PeripheryDemographic had this as one of their biggest questions. The ponies do indeed have manes, though they're treated as human hair, but it's generally unmentioned as to whether they have purple, blue, orange, etc. body hair/fur or they have no body hair and it's actually their skin. It gets a little weirder when talking about one of the most well-known elements of the show: the "cutie mark", a symbol of some sort that appears on a pony's hindquarters when they discover their greatest talent or purpose in life. Whether it's just a pattern of differently-colored fur or the mark appears on the pony's skin remained unclear for some time. It was, however, addressed in the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential Ponyville Confidential]]", after Snips and Snails get themselves stuck together with bubble gum. Later we see their fur was shaven off in places to get them apart, and indeed, the part with their cutie marks was shaven off as well.

* The [[PettingZooPeople Caninu and Felineko]] of ''{{Solatorobo}}'' have both body fur and a full head of hair. Notably, females [[HumanoidFemaleAnimal tend to have peach fur and shorter muzzles]], while males tend to stick to one or two colors (though from a larger palette containing greys, whites, oranges, and other colors that wouldn't make much sense for a human skin).

** Similarly, Sunset Shimmer and Flash Sentry, who were both created for ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'' and get far more screen time as humans than ponies, have peach colored skin/coats.

* All of the [[CatFolk Thunderians]] from ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' have this trait. The ContinuityReboot takes more care to show "tufts" of fur at places like shoulders and elbows, and occasionally shows facial or bodily fur bristling with anger or surprise, though ThroughAFaceFullOfFur still occurs.
