* Behold, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euglena Euglena]]. It's a single celled organism that photosynthesises like an alga, but swims around like a protozoan. Before the kingdom Protista was created and it was realised organisms could be something other than an animal or a plant, botanists and zoologists used to fight over this little thing to determine whose field of study it belongs to. Even now Euglena is usually found in the first chapters of both zoology and botany books.

* [[DisneyChannel Disney Junior's]] ''WesternAnimation/TheOctonauts'' brings us "Vegimals," a group of semi-anthropomorphic vegetables, with a turnip called "Tunip" as their leader. They communicate using cheeping and trilling noises and can whip up a mean "fish biscuit" (not made of actual fish, but tastes fishy.)
