One trope that catches animators when portraying fish, cetacean (whale, dolphin and porpoise) and pinniped (walrus, seal) characters in cartoons is to have them walk on their tailfins (or tail flukes if a cetacean or back feet if a pinniped) when on land. This makes even less sense than a cow with a prehensile tail - cow tails are relatively rigid, but {{Prehensile Tail}}s are viable, whereas tailfins just aren't meant to support an animal's weight - but it's easier to show a fish walking on its tailfins than on its pelvic fins.

This makes even less sense than a cow trope is especially common in cartoons, since filming this is difficult with a prehensile tail - cow tails real fish. In reality, tail-fins are relatively rigid, but {{Prehensile Tail}}s are viable, whereas tailfins just aren't meant to rather floppy, and won't support an the animal's weight - but it's easier to show a fish weight, however, it looks more natural then walking on its tailfins than on its pelvic the pectoral fins.

* Played with with Darwin the goldfish from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball''; Darwin's pelvic fins have turned into actual legs and feet so he can walk.
