* As Creator/WaltDisney sought to drastically improve [[ArtEvolution animation quality and standards]] in his cartoons throughout the 1930's and early 40's, this trope became apparent in full force. Far and away the best and most revered Disney animation of the period tends to be either animal characters such as WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse, WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}}, the Disney/ThreeLittlePigs, [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Jiminy Cricket]], Disney/{{Dumbo}} and Disney/{{Bambi}} or stylized caricatures of humans such as [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs the Seven Dwarfs]].

Added DiffLines:

** The book has a fair few fourth wall breaks where the author addresses readers directly, and he discusses some of the metaphor's limitations. When Spiegelman is at his most medium-aware - the scenes where he visits his psychiatrist - he draws the animal faces as explicit masks worn by humans. There's also an ambiguous scene regarding a concentration camp inmate who claims to be a non-Jewish German; Spiegelman initially draws him as a mouse but then redraws him as a cat when asking his father's opinion on the truth of the inmate's story.

* ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}'': Drawing all the characters as mice or other animals is the only significant [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality acceptable break from reality]] that this explicitly biographical comic tolerates.

[[AnimalJingoism Cats vs. mice]] also makes for a convenient visual metaphor, though one that would turn the story into a BrokenAesop if taken too seriously.

* This is almost certainly why ''Pluggers'' uses furries, since the strip is about Midwestern senior citizens.

* Because they found humans to be extremely hard to draw and animate with the technological limitations of the time, most of Pixar's earlier films primarily had either [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory toys]], [[WesternAnimation/ABugsLife insects]], [[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc monsters]], or [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo fish]] as main characters. It wasn't until 2004's ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' that humans became a large part of the characters in their movies ([[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} though not always]]).
