* ''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 [[ToonWorld the world outside of Elmore 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' takes place in a world much like our own, except that humans coexist with PettingZooPeople (and there are a lot of different kinds of animals featured; even ''insects'' are anthropomorphic in this world!). {{Interspecies Romance}}s are quite common, and some real-life celebrities have {{Fictional Counterpart}}s who are animals, such as [[Creator/QuentinTarantio Quentin Tarantulino]] and Creator/EthanHawke (who's literally a hawk).

* ''ComicBook/{{Fable}}'' -- both the anthropomorphic and realistic animals are capable of speech and human intelligence. It kind of makes you wonder how the Three Little Pigs react to eating their real-world counterparts.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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]].

{{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!]]
