* ''WesternAnimation/{{Felidae}}''. To quote the entry: "Despite being an animated film, it is ''definitely'' not for kids. The film contains graphic violence, disturbing images, adult language, and cat sex. Yes, ''cat sex''."
** It's basically a noir drama with cats. It has the language, sex, and violence but instead of humans in fedoras we get cute cats.

* There's also the animated film of ''WesternAnimation/WatershipDown'', which has cute little bunny rabbits...who get snatched by hawks along with being bloodily killed and get into brutal fights.



* ''Literature/TailchasersSong'' is about a young feral cat named Fritti Tailchaser as he goes on an adventure trying to solve the mystery of why cats in his clan are suddenly disappearing. It sounds like a kid's book, but it's a lengthy fantasy novel with deep lore and ConLang. It isn't aimed at children.



* ''VideoGame/ADogsLife'' is a T rated game where you are a dog trying to save his love interest from being cat food.

* 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.

* ''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 '''all''' 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.

* 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.

* 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/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.
