* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' has several times talked about "getting some fresh air", despite being a water-breathing animal.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' has several times talked about "getting some fresh air", despite being a water-breathing animal. It's also lampshaded in an episode where Krabs offers him a glass of water, then goes to a water cooler turns the nozzle and nothing comes out, he then hands it to spongebob... who apparently drinks it...

* The cast of {{Arthur}} (and the book series it's based on) are basically a bunch of average kids, their families and teachers....who just happen to be different anthropomorphic critters.

* In ''OnePiece'', Tony Tony Chopper is a reindeer that ate a Devil Fruit called the "Human Human Fruit" ("Hito Hito no Mi" in Japan), which gave him human awareness and intelligence, as well as the ability to transform into a human (although he looks like a BeastMan in that form) and a [[PartialTransformation hybrid form]] that's a cross between the human form and his original reindeer form. This trope is mostly averted, as Chopper is fully aware that he's still a reindeer, but on at least one occasion during the [[spoiler:Fishman Island]] arc, [[spoiler:Jinbe]] exclaimed that Luffy and the Straw Hats shouldn't fight [[spoiler:the New Fishman Pirates]]. Chopper (along with Franky, a {{Cyborg}}) wonder why and ask "Is it because... we're humans?", to which Sanji replies:

* In-universe example in the ''XWingSeries''. Apparently "We're only human" is a phrase there, too, and a non human character pointedly states that while the ''speaker'' is human, ''he'' is not.

** Played with in ''SamAndMaxHitTheRoad'', where they buy a coloring book. Sam can ask Max if he wants to do any coloring, and Max points out that [[FurryReminder he's colorblind]]. Sam then realises, "Me, too." [[NegativeContinuity The coloring book can still be used with what are explicitly Max's crayons, and there's several puzzles in the game which rely on colour codes.]]

* The Creator/CartoonNetwork series ''IAmWeasel'' uses this trope frequently. A rather hilarious example may be when Weasel said something along the lines of, "They may only be baboons, but they're still human!"

** In the CarlBarks comic "[[http://disneycomics.free.fr/Ducks/Barks/show.php?s=date&loc=1950/W_OS_263-03 The Trail of the Unicorn]]", Scrooge [=McDuck=] sends for Donald to help capture the one animal he is missing from his zoo, but the nephews take this the wrong way and interrupt his exposition with the following protest:

** "The Mustache" featured Miss Simian talking about the human body...even though none of the students are human.

** One of Elmer Fudd's few solo cartoons had him watching his boss's dog, Rover, for a few days. His boss informed him that Rover believed himself to be human and expected Elmer to treat him that way. Throughout the cartoon, Elmer would slip up (feeding Rover dog food, or have him watch a Series/{{Lassie}} expy, etc), causing Rover to be offended.

[[FridgeLogic Weird, ain't it?]] This may indicate that a FunnyAnimal is unaware that he is an animal. This may also apply to actions, such as a dog eating ice cream or chocolate without getting sick, or a weasel [[InterspeciesRomance having a romantic relationship with a human]] with no comment whatsoever. Most likely, it implies that the creator views the character's appearance as simply cosmetic; as far as the setting is concerned, they're just as human as you, no matter what they might look like. Ever wonder why MickeyMouse was never shown with cheese in the theatrical cartoons? Disney himself forbade it!
