* ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}'' is a webcomic about a bootlegging gang in Prohibition-era UsefulNotes/StLouis, with plenty of gunfights, killings, and several sociopathic characters. There is painstaking attention to period-appropriate detail, with one exception: all the characters are anthropomorphic cats.

* The oldest example of this trope may be the ''Literature/ReynardTheFox'' stories from the 13th century. It's a medieval poem about a KarmicTrickster fox character who brutally murders, rapes, steals from other animals and has to be brought to court. The story has a lot of adult content, with even a Catholic priest who is apparently married and has his penis bit off by one of the animals.
* Many fairy tales who are kids' entertainment nowadays weren't originally intended that way. In earlier centuries these stories were told to children and adults alike and often featured content that would not be considered child friendly today. A good example is ''Literature/LittleRedRidingHood'' where the wolf character was mostly intended originally as a seductive man lusting for young girls.

* During the 1930s and 1940s the ''Tijuana Bible'' phenomenon began to blossom. These were pornographic comic strip parodies on famous franchises like ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse'', ''WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck'',... drawn by anonymous artists. As Creator/ArtSpiegelman has correctly said: "These were the forefathers of the UndergroundComics of the 1960s and 1970s."
* ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}'' is a story about the lives of a group of gay men, going through the standard issues of the time (homophobia, relationship dramas, AIDS, grieving people dead [[spoiler:due to '''alll''' of those incidents]], et cetera), with the main characters depicted as rather fuzzy mammals. Notably, however, the characters are actually contextually human beings; we're only seeing them through a "furry lens", and the illustrated novel that concludes the comic does in fact describe them as such rather than the anthropomorphic animals they are in the visual art.
* ''ComicBook/FritzTheCat'' and its two {{Animated Adaptation}}s, ''WesternAnimation/FritzTheCat'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheNineLivesOfFritzTheCat''. Graphic sex, graphic violence, drug use and satirical social commentary, all set in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals. Creator/RobertCrumb continued making comic strips with antropomorphic animals doing adult stuff ever since, such as ''Those Cute Little Bearzie Wearzies'' where a fuzzy bear couple that looks absolutely cute act more like a typical RealLife couple by having foul mouthed arguments and having sex with each other.
* ''ComicBook/OmahaTheCatDancer'': An adult comic strip with antropomorphic animal characters who engage in sex, but is otherwise not vulgar. It's more about relationships between people and also touches sexual topics, but in a tasteful and thought provoking way.

* ''ComicBook/TomPoes'' is about the adventures of a bear and his friend the little white cat. It's a children's comic strip, but has very AntiquatedLinguistics and gentle adult satire that will be understood by adults better than children. Creator Marten Toonder used it to openly poke fun at the Nazis when they were at their most powerful and right on his doorstep). The series is still considered one of the most mature and "literary" European comic strips.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' is a show where all the cast are {{Funny Animal}}s. That being said, there are jokes about sex, drugs, alcohol, and even Nazis.

* ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseMan'' is a no-holds-barred deconstructive take on the dark side of celebrity and fame.

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseMan'' ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' is set in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals and humans where every so often puns are made at the expense of species, has large absurdism themes and can be '''extremely''' silly. It's also a no-holds-barred deconstructive take on the dark side of celebrity and fame. fame, the question of happiness as a destination or a path, how the world can be large and meaningless especially compared to how small scope we are, depression, drug addiction, the true meaning of life, how shallow and self-destructive existentialism can be on the face of practicality and even does the unthinkable: it directly addresses CarnivoreConfusion in a world where anthropomorphism is a thing. Needless to say, the result is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything not too dissimilar to how animals are processed and consumed for humans to eat]].

* Swedish comic strips ''ComicBook/ArneAnka'' and ''ComicBook/{{Rocky}}'' are filled to the brim with funny animals. They're also filled with alcohol consumption, sex and deep, deep cynicism.

* ''ComicBook/TheMiceTemplar'' is filled with lots of cute mice and other small, adorable critters. But the story itself is heavily religious and contains a plethora of {{Gorn}}, and is essentially about a young hero trying to stop a tyrant while also trying to [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder figure out who he can trust]].

* ''FanFic/WhatLiesBeyondTheWalls'' is a ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' fanfic that not only contains explicit sex scenes, but also focuses on [[WarIsHell the brutality of war]] and how it can easily corrupt others. It also shows how [[GreyAndGrayMorality gray]] the world really is, and doesn't waste time revealing that everyone on both sides isn't 100% good or evil.
