Although they are distinctly separate species, they will show great affection for each other and will rarely act or appear separately. Predators will be notably absent from the group, but [[NatureHero a human being accepted in is not unheard of]]. They tend to be very shy and easily startled, but if a character is [[FriendToAllLivingThings pure at heart, she will be allowed among them]], [[AllAnimalsAreDomesticated and they will even come to her aid]]. If they decide to take matters in their own hands then it will inevitably lead to a GaiasVengeance.

* Any number of ''WesternAnimation/SillySymphonies'' shorts, [[WesternAnimation/HappyHarmonies as well]] [[WesternAnimation/ColorClassics as their imitators.]]
* Creator/TexAvery, who was definitely not a fan of this trope, plays with it in the short ''Little Tinker'', about a skunk looking for a mate and being constantly rejected.
** The first Screwy Squirrel cartoon, ''Screwball Squirrel'', seems like it's going to follow this trope at first with chirping birds, and a cute squirrel collecting nuts in a basket, until Screwy appears on the scene and beats up the cute squirrel.
