* On ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' the title character temporarily adopts a goat and names it Steven Jr.
* On ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall,'' [[CheerfulChild Greg]] carries around a frog that he gives several names, including Wirt Jr. (after [[SociallyAwkwardHero his brother]]) and UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington. In the final episode, he decides that the "perfect frog name" is [[spoiler:Jason Funderburker, the name of Wirt's romantic rival]], who actually seems honored. Interestingly, WordOfGod says that the names are spelled differently (the human is [[spoiler:Jason ''Funderberker'']], with an "e" instead of a "u").
