Very importantly, this does ''not'' mean a character without an outfit is automatically regarded as "naked". Most animal characters from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation wore no clothes whatsoever, but acted denuded only when random comic violence rendered them featherless or furless, with their underlying bare skin (and occasional GoofyPrintUnderwear) revealed. Hence, feathers and fur have long been grandfathered in as an acceptable [[FurIsClothing animal analogue for clothing]]. Strangely, if a half-dressed character loses their shirt they will suddenly realize their crotch is exposed.

** Back when ''Star Wars: Film/ANewHope'' was in production, there were executives worried about Chewbacca not wearing pants. This was rather hilariously lampshaded in the third ''Robot Chicken Star Wars Special'' when Han Solo met Chewbacca's family for the first time, and they were all fully clothed. "You mean you've been naked all this time?!"

* The Annoying Thing/Crazy Frog is often depicted with only a leather jacket, helmet, and goggles. This is a bit of a subversion in that unlike almost all others the Crazy Frog has visible naughty bits. Eventually the Crazy Frog commercials had a black censor bar.

* Many college mascots are animals clad only in a sweater bearing the school's initials.
* Likewise, a good chunk of UsefulNotes/{{fur|ryFandom}}suiters either wear a shirt or shorts/pants. Sometimes the article of clothing ''is'' part of the costume, as in the costumer never bothered to make legs or a complete torso for it (both to keep costs down and make it less hot to wear), letting the clothing hide this fact.

* As with the Trope page quote, Dutch comedian Harry Jekkers mentioned the fact that WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck wears no trousers during one of his shows in the early nineties. In fact, he points out that a '''Duck''', while walking as a normal human being, wears no pants. What follows is his outrage when he points out that when this same '''Duck''' is in his natural element -- swimming in water -- he suddenly starts wearing ''swimming trunks.'' Cue laughter from audience.

Homestar dresses up as [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Tobias Funkë]], wearing nothing but cut-off shorts and blue skin paint.
