** Dalmatians are the only dog breed that can approximate a smile, usually done so if they know they're in trouble or are just very happy. It looks like a snarl, but they do not show their back teeth, and they're usually wagging their tails.

* In Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', Lumiere attempts to coach the Beast in order to help him win Belle over, "Give her a dashing, debonair smile. Come, come, show me the smile."

* In ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', 626 (Stitch) bares his teeth in the most humorously creepy way when he says ''"Hi!"'' to Lilo in an attempt to show friendliness and to get her to adopt him. Considering what happens from there, you could say that it worked.

* This was implied in SonicUnleashed where one of the [=NPCs=] asked Sonic why he doesn't smile in his Werehog form and wants him to do it. Sonic does so (albeit offscreen) and the NPC was startled by the [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily discovery]], regretting that he asked.
