It's true that Humans Are Bastards. That, and centering works around colorful animals is more child-friendly. So for these reasons, a lot of works center around animal characters, with only a very small amount of human characters. Specific Versions:
- Humans exist and everyone knows about them, but they are very rare in the setting. Other characters might be Funny Animals, fantasy creatures, aliens, etc. (Example: Adventure Time).
- Humans are very common, and may be the dominant species, but only a few appear in the story, which is dominated by animal or fantasy characters (Exammple: Finding Nemo, Bambi).
- Humans are everywhere, but mostly you might just see their feet or vehicles from the point of view of an animal character. There are only a few human characters that have a speaking role (Example: Oliver & Company).
- The Pokémon short film Pikachu's Vacation, which was played before Pokémon: The First Movie and is on that movie's DVD, only has the trainers at the very beginning and end.
- In Bambi humans don't appear often but play an important role.
- The only human characters in U.S. Acres are a farmer and his daughter who appeared right after Orson fell out of the truck and took him to the farm. They only appeared for four strips, were only seen waist-down or in silhouette, and never appeared again.
- Stephen Pastis's Author Avatar is the only human main character in Pearls Before Swine. However, one-shot human characters appear quite often.
- Ronald-Ann was the only human that appeared in A Wish for Wings That Work.
- The Tom and Jerry cartoons; we only ever see the legs of a housemaid, and Tom is "just" a cat while she's present.
- My Little Pony (ONLY G1, though, in which Megan and friends are the only humans, all others are World of Funny Animals)
- SpongeBob SquarePants
