Skin Pocket YKTTW Discussion
Funny Animal character might be shown reaching into their pockets to pull out any number of things. But if said character is a pants-less Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal, or doesn't wear clothes at all, they might suddenly have pockets in their fur (or feathers, or scales) that they reach into. Humans or furless characters don't usually have this in animation, probably because it would be Nightmare Fuel for the viewer.
