* In ''ACharlieBrownChristmas'', Snoopy has a big pile of these in his bowl; he eats them as he reads the newspaper. Note - he doesn't chew on them, or gnaw the meat off the bones, he eats the bones.

In media, whenever a non-skull bone shows up, it's a very good bet it will be the classic femur bone, a straight rod with two evenly-sized bulbs at either end, ignoring the RealLife diversity of tibias, scapulas, clavicles, vertebras, and all the other diverse bones that hold the body in shape. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the femur being the largest, strongest, straightest bone in the body, so it's instantly recognizable, often well preserved, and useful for everything from [[BadWithTheBone improvised clubs]] to [[StockAnimalDiet dog chew toys]] to macabre furniture supports.

In media, those femur bones are often symmetrical from both sides, [[CoconutEffect although they aren't like that in]] RealLife. That's also known as "Cartoon Bone".

->''"At first glance, one would think that they have discovered a fossilized bone from an ancient civilization. Look again. Do bones really look like that?!?!?! Perhaps in cartoons, but not around these parts, pal. This, my friend, is the fossilized remains of one of the treats that were used centuries ago in order to domesticate the local wild animals. The sad part is that they were shaped like a 'bone' purely for the entertainment of the creature giving the treat, as the creature eating it couldn't care less what it was shaped like."''
