*** Sunflower the servant centaurette in the ''Pastoral Symphony'' segment is a donkey from the waist down and a black girl from the waist up. She's so badly stereotyped that she got {{Orwellian Retcon}}ned out of the 1969 re-release and all subsequent releases. There were also two zebra-based centaurettes who are black from the waist up. The other centaurs and centaurettes are horse-based and white (well, they have white features; they're an AmazingTechnicolorPopulation) from the waist up. In addition, when the centaurs pair up romantically, [[LikeGoesWithLike each pair is a perfect color match]]. The "odd man out" centaur, a blue male, is dejected and lonely until his proper match, a blue female, appears.

** Ludwig Von Drake, another Disney duck, is a UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud-esque HerrDoktor Austrian stereotype. When the character was made in the early 1960s they made him Austrian instead of German because of what happened during UsefulNotes/{{WWII}} and the resulting perceptions of Germany and Germans at the time.

** The Indian snake charmer woozle in ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' embodies Indian stereotypes.



** ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' has mice and cats -- across many different countries -- representing, respectively, the poor and their oppressors. Fievel and his family are Russian Jewish mice fleeing from Cossack cats, for instance. We also meet Italian mice fleeing the cat mafia, and Irish mice, for whom cats seem to represent British colonialism. ''Fievel Goes West'' throws in some culturally-insensitive Native American mice.

** Earlier on, Disney actually averted the "[[NationalAnimalStereotypes Siamese cat = Asian]]" stereotype for once with Milton the cat, who appeared in the animated short "Plutopia" alongside WesternAnimation/PlutoThePup. Milton went on to make a second appearance in "Puss Cafe" with another non-stereotyped Siamese cat named Richard. And this was during TheFifties, no less.

** The original {{Big Lipped Alligator|Moment}} from ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'' could be considered this for black people, given the bone through his nose, the deep-voiced jazz number, and...well...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the big lips]]. He also apparently rules a tribe of sewer rats who resemble your stereotypical HollywoodNatives, wearing SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset and other tribal garb.

* ''Werewolf: The Apocalypse'' features a variety of werewolf tribes that players had to select from, relating to the ethnic stereotypes of their homelands. Just to drive the point totally home, they have powers relating to those stereotypes. So the Irish Fianna have powers relating to drinking, the Shadow Lords (both Japanese and Eastern European, somehow) are ruthless, deceptive and power-hungry, and the Bone Gnawers (ghetto-dwellers, including African-Americans) are poor and despised. The World of Darkness explains this by asserting that mythological creatures are the origin of various racial and ethnic stereotypes.

** Cardassians are amoral, devoted to a big brother-esque government, and the Federation appeases them because they'd prefer a Cold War to a Hot War, referencing Russian stereotypes. Their expansionistic, elitist and racist tendencies also call to mind NaziGermany.
