** The rats of Bad Blintz are seriously confused by the children's book ''Mr Bunnsy Has an Adventure'', which suggests that humans are much more comfortable around talking animals than their own experience suggests is the case. They come to the conclusion that the book is a vision of utopia, possibly provided by [[AnimalReligion The Big Rat Underground]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' takes place in [[WorldOfWeirdness the City of Elmore]], where all the animals and [[EverythingTalks every single object]] [[TalkingAnimal is capable of thought and speech]], with some of them [[FunnyAnimal living like humans]], forming the town's "population". However, humans--'''[[MediumBlending live-action]]''' humans-- have frequently been shown on the TV and internet without comment. This, along with the [[MediumBlending photographic backgrounds]], imply the world outside of Elmore [[AlternateTooniverse is mostly the same as real life and populated by regular humans]]. And then there's [[BizarroEpisode "The Sweaters"]], which shows Elmore has some ''animated'' humans, but [[NonStandardCharacterDesign the way they look]], how they act, and the places they hang around are leagues more bizarre than any of the nonhumans in the show.

{{Funny Animal}}s are handy. Because they're animals that act human without ''looking'' human, they can add a sense of whimsy or comedy to a piece; seeing a group of ''animals'' go about ordinary human lives can help to accentuate just how absurd we are sometimes. If they're played with [[FurryReminder "realistic" animal traits]] ([[MostWritersAreHuman or as realistic as circumstances allow]]), they can allow for a unique brand of comedy. If they're being used seriously, they can help give the impression of a different world. Heck, [[FurriesAreEasierToDraw they might just be easier to draw]]. However, in many works that use them, they are a "human substitute." It might get a little too weird [[FridgeLogic to consider]] what it would be like having both humanoid "animals" and "ordinary" humans running around in the same world--especially if there are ''regular'' animals [[FurryConfusion running around as well,]] and even more so if some of ''them ''[[TalkingAnimal talk!]]

** ComicBook/DisneyMouseAndDuckComics in general. The exact proportions vary DependingOnTheWriter. In some stories, the background citizens of Duckburg or Mouseton are approximately equal amounts humans (usually {{Dogfaces}}), birds of various species, pigs etc. while in others, apart from the main characters, there's not a single non-human in sight.

** * ComicBook/DisneyMouseAndDuckComics in general. The exact proportions vary DependingOnTheWriter. In some stories, the background citizens of Duckburg or Mouseton are approximately equal amounts humans (usually {{Dogfaces}}), birds of various species, pigs etc. while in others, apart from the main characters, there's not a single non-human in sight. When it's the former, the various anthropomorphic animals still refer to themselves as humans. The expended canon also includes a TalkingAnimal or two, and even a few stories use AnimalTalk (notably for barnyard animals). There are also ''regular'' animals to top, which DependingOnTheWriter may or may not be the same that have AnimalTalk. And among ''those'', some behave in ways that imply that in spite of their inability to speak, they are still more sentient that our regular animals (see Pluto), while others are scientifically accurate to amazing levels. It's a mess.

Added DiffLines:

* Walter Brooks' Freddy the Pig series features talking animals who can do everything from solving mysteries to running a bank to writing poetry. Interestingly, the talking part came later in the series, meaning Freddy has to pretend to be a mute after putting on human clothes in one early appearance.

* ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears''. Humans don't seem to find talking bears walking around the city too unusual; they do get stares from their lack of manners, but no more than if it were humans acting the same way. There are a few other animals that can speak (most particularly Nom Nom the koala), and even the ones that don't exhibit IntellectualAnimal tencencies.

* The Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog series moved to this kind of world starting with ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''. Before then, there was no telling where Robotnik came from. In fact, the series seems to make a distinct differentiation between humans, anthropomorphs, and regular animals. Sonic will go to great lengths to save animals then reward himself by [[CarnivoreConfusion eating a chili dog]] and the other characters aren't able to communicate with [[TeamPet Chao or Big's pal, Froggy]]. Early promotional "origin stories" and the original plans for Sonic 1 gave Sonic [[InterspeciesRomance a human girlfriend]]. This element would later find itself in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' and your mileage WILL VARY depending on the extent human-hedgehog relationships [[BerserkButton make you want to break stuff]].
