->''"I am not an animal! Well... okay, I'm kind of an animal. My features are animal-like, I don't wear clothes, and I smell a bit outdoorsy most of the time. But I have a job, and I talk and stuff too, so when I say I'm not an animal I think technically I'm on solid ground."''
--> -- '''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'''

They're animals who think, talk and act mostly like human beings. Unlike the SpeechImpairedAnimal, TalkingAnimal, or CivilizedAnimal (whose priorities and motivations are still that of an animal despite their ability to speak), the Funny Animal has almost all the mannerisms of a human being. Sometimes, only his appearance distinguishes him from the hairless primates who draw him. Indeed, one of the main incentives in using such characters are that they are more distinctive, and hence easier to draw as recognizable individuals, than ordinary humans. Or maybe it's just because FurriesAreEasierToDraw.

A good comparison, from the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' cartoons: Scooby-Doo is a SpeechImpairedAnimal. Scrappy-Doo, who might as well be a midget in a dog suit, is a Funny Animal.
The main distinguishing trait of many Funny Animals is that in most situations, they can be replaced by a human and the plot would be mostly identical. Unlike PettingZooPeople, which have animal heads and tails on humanoid bodies, Funny Animals have [[http://cuteanimalart.blogspot.com/2009/10/alfred-mainzer-company-and-dressed.html a body that is generally shaped like that of their respective species]] (or [[CartoonCreature no species in particular]]). Funny Animals are [[FourLegsGoodTwoLegsBetter bipedal even if their species is not naturally so]], and most Funny Animal birds have FeatherFingers, whether their wings look completely like wings or look (to varying degrees) like arms. Some Funny Animals [[AnthropomorphicZigZag can shift]] between using [[RunningOnAllFours two legs and four]].

Practically any cartoon series from UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, or video games aimed at children younger than 13 have at least one such character.

Funny Animal is the technical term used by cartoonists to refer to the genre and characters. Also note that the "funny" in the title isn't literal: Funny Animals can be serious characters too.

Frequently overlaps with AnimalSuperheroes and IntelligentGerbil. May live in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals. May suffer from CarnivoreConfusion and FurryConfusion. See PettingZooPeople for characters who are more anthropomorphized, and CivilizedAnimal and TalkingAnimal for those who are less anthropomorphized.

For characters who are somewhat between Funny Animal and PettingZooPeople there is the subtrope, Borderline Petting Zoo People:
* Borderline PZP have a body that does not look simply like an animal-accented human body, nor does it keep the basic shape of the animal entirely like a Funny Animal. They look partly humanoid and partly like their species, often they have either humanoid legs and non-humanoid torso, humanoid torso and non-humanoid legs, or look semi-humanoid all over. Many [[TopHeavyGuy top heavy]] bipedal animal characters are of the humanoid torso and non-humanoid legs variety. Females are depicted with human-like breasts fairly often.

In the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom, Funny Animals aren't as commonly seen as PettingZooPeople. This is usually because Funny Animals keep their animalistic-shape and lack a few human mannerisms, whereas PettingZooPeople have a mostly humanoid body frame and have full-on human mannerisms. Sometimes, characters who are Funny Animals in their {{canon}} will be made Petting Zoo People in fanart, particularly if the artists want to [[RuleThirtyFour eroticize them]]. Nevertheless, Funny Animals are [[PopularWithFurries fairly popular among members of the fandom]], especially to those who like their animal characters to look a little more accurate.

For further tropes pertaining to funny animals, furries and the tropes that appear frequently in their genres, see FunnyAnimalTropes. Compare IntellectualAnimal.

Closely related to BeastFable, which is the ancient form of the genre.

On the SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism, these fall somewhere between the CivilizedAnimal (Which has some anthropomorphic traits, but still has the lifestyle and priorities of a wild animal) and the PettingZooPerson (Who have animalistic heads, tails, and sometimes hands and feet, but are humanoid everywhere else).

[[folder:Advertising]]
* One British lottery has a fox-man as a mascot.
* Alexandr and Sergei from ''Advertising/CompareTheMeerkat''.
* Several ''Advertising/Orangina'' ads feature anthropomorphs having a dance party. In their underclothes. For some reason.
* The Symbicort commercials mainly have wolves in the animated segments. Could be a factor that they are all [[{{Animorphism}} anthropomorphic wolfified versions]] of the elderly man and his friends and family in the commercials.

* OlderThanRadio: ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogs_Playing_Poker Dogs Playing Poker]]'', sixteen paintings done over the course of 17 years (1893 to 1910) by by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge. The dogs don't play poker in some of them, but all of them feature Funny Animal dogs. These works have been parodies many times in modern fiction.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The title character from ''Animation/BlackCatDetective''. If Creator/SamuelLJackson were a cat, then he would also apparently be a Chinese police officer.
* Kero the Guardian Beast from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''.
* ''Anime/CatSoup'': The cats have human characteristics but you have to stop and wonder if at least one of them really is processing the world around them.
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Gorilla]] from ''Manga/CromartieHighSchool''.
* ''Manga/DamekkoDoubutsu'' takes this to it's logical extreme with the characters looking like humans in costumes. [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom It never actually comes up in the series]].
* There's a couple examples in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', which stick out like sore thumbs among the overwhelmingly human/space alien cast. Notable characters include Oolong, an anthropomorphic pig, Karin, a cat, and Puar, a shapeshifting cabbit (cat/rabbit mashup). Also, at one time it was shown the president of Earth was a dog. They only stick out if you never saw or read the original ''Manga/DragonBall'', which was a much more light-hearted series and almost overflowing with Funny Animals as secondary and tertiary characters. ''Manga/DragonBall'' was originally based on ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'', which had Zhu Bajie (known as "Cho Hakkai" in Japan and "Pig" or "Pigsy" in most English translations) and Sun Wukong (better known by his Japanese name "Son Goku") as two of the main characters-Oolong and Goku, only in their original forms.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'''s Exceed race (including Happy, Carla, and Panther Lily) are creatures that look like cats but behave like people. They can even inherently use magic, making them wizards like any other human.
* Tama from ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler''. He speaks perfect Japanese, can walk on two legs, has a degree in economics and is a qualified boiler room operator. Hayate is the only person who knows he can do it, however; to the rest of the cast he is just a lovable, oafish and above-average intelligent tiger (or 'big cat'). He's also spoken in front of Wataru. When confronted about speaking in front of others he says something about not wanting to shatter the girls' (Maria and Nagi) dreams.
* [[WeaselMascot Chamo]] in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', an ermine with a suspicious attraction for [[MarsNeedsWomen human girls]]. Most definitely a human mage that was slapped with the Academy's [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment very specific punishment]] for breaking TheMasquerade. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v01/c001/54.html The punishment is explained]] by Negi himself.
* All of the animals that appear in ''Anime/MapleTown''.
* ''Manga/OnePiece''
** Tony Tony Chopper, a gullible reindeer doctor. {{Justified|Trope}} in that he ate the Hito Hito no Mi (Human-Human fruit), which gave him human intelligence; before that, he was an ordinary ([[AllOfTheOtherReindeer albeit blue-nosed]]) reindeer.
** Bepo, an apologetic, self-conscious polar bear. Whenever he's aware of people who are surprised at the fact that he can speak, he'll get depressed, hold his head down in shame, and apologize to them.
** When Pappagu the starfish was young, he mixed up the word ''hitode'' (the Japanese word for "starfish") with ''hito'' (a Japanese word for "human"), so he thought he was human. By the time he realized he was a starfish, he had already learned how to speak like a human. He has also created the successful "Criminal" clothing line.
** Pekoms, one of [[Characters/OnePieceTheFourEmperors Big Mam's]] subordinates is a lion, with little eyes (which he counsel behind sunglasses) a formal attire and excellent fighting skills. One might expect that Pekoms was a human who ate a lion Zoan fruit and stays in the hybrid form, but no. He's a human-like lion who ate a ''turtle'' Zoan fruit.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''
** Meowth of the Team Rocket trio taught himself "human talk" and how to stand on his hind legs, all for the love of a female Meowth named Meowzie who said that a human could do more for her than anything he could (as in, the food, housing and adoration), only to be rejected as now she considers him a freak.
** In [[Manga/TheElectricTaleOfPikachu one manga adaptation]], a story arc centers around the kitten of the very same Meowzie; she's found in a Poké Ball the gang purchases (unable to get captured herself, the mother pops her kitten into an unsold ball to ensure that whoever finds her will give her a good home). When Team Rocket, and thus Meowth, come around making trouble, Meowth meets this kitten and instantly sees her mother in her face and shining coin. Then she tells him it's creepy how he acts like he's a human. Oh heartbreak.
** Mewtwo seems quite human-like, but his psychic powers make that easy. In Manga/PokemonSpecial, he actually has Blaine's DNA and is thus a HalfHumanHybrid.
* In Creator/StudioGhibli's ''Anime/PorcoRosso'' (The Crimson Pig) the main protagonist is a pig, or more exactly a "pig-headed" human as he has the complete anatomy of a stout person except for the head. He is the only one of his type and lives among a human society who, while aware of his difference, don't find it bizarre and sometimes openly point it out. It's stated that he somehow became a BalefulPolymorph, given that there are pictures (and a flashback) showing him in human form.
* ''Anime/PrincessTutu'''s Mr. Cat looks exactly as his name implies, and occasionally meows and cleans himself with his paws, but is otherwise a marriage-obsessed ballet instructor. While he is the most prominent one and has the most screen time, there are other guest characters that also fall under this trope.
* ''Manga/ShirokumaCafe'' is pretty much about this, as well as their interactions with humans.
** Inverted with Mr. Shoebill from Episode 8. He does not talk or act anthropomorphosized, but he is still sentient as the Funny Animal characters and is the editor in chief of a local food magazine.
** Is lampshaded in one episode where a nameless human (Nicknamed Mr. Necktie) visits from out of town. And is bewildered that animals can walk and talk and tries to study them. (Despite it's been shown that Funny Animals are everywhere in that universe)
* ''Many'' of the other characters in ''Anime/SuzysZooDaisukiWitzy''.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In ''ComicBook/{{Amulet}}'', the population of Kanalis. Unusually, it's due to a curse, and we actually see people in the process of turning into them.
* Very common in BritishComics. Examples include Biffo the Bear and Big Eggo from ''ComicBook/TheBeano'', Korky the Cat from ''ComicBook/TheDandy'', Mickey the Monkey from ''The Topper'' and ''ComicStrip/RupertBear''.
* DC Comics' ''ComicBook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew'', which contained several {{Continuity Nod}}s to the other Funny Animal comics DC published.
* Tawky Tawny is a very civilized version of this in the original ''[[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]''.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}'', species is purely aesthetic.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' comics, the Sixth Doctor's companion Frobisher is drawn to look like this kind of character, though he's technically a shapeshifter who chooses to take the form of a funny anthropomorphic penguin most of the time.
* An early example is ''ComicStrip/KrazyKat'', running from 1913 to 1944.
* One of the earliest known funny animal characters would have to be [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Jack Mr.Jack]] created by Jimmy Swinnerton which ran from 1903 - 1935.
* The titular duo of ''ComicBook/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'', with Sam leaning slightly further towards being a PettingZooPerson than Max but still having enough animal coding to be this trope. Some characters, like Sal from [[VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice the video games]], also qualify.
* ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'': The Poet Ant, a humanoid radioactive [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ant]] from ''El castillo de arena'' (''The Sand Castle'').
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* The chickens in ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' are difficult to categorise--the humans treat them just like any other chickens, but most of them wear at least one article of clothing and [[TheDitz the stupidest one]] is capable of knitting.
* The cast of ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' could be replaced by humans and it wouldn't make any difference at all. Well, except for Toby who is a dog.
* The penguins in ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'' are an odd case; at times they uncomfortably straddle the line between penguins who can talk and penguin-people.
* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''. In particular, the characters use their animal attributes in their fighting styles, like Crane's wings or Po's [[KevLard body fat]]. Tigress and Tai Lung come the closest to crossing over into PettingZooPeople, but they are still distinctly feline.
* Disney's ''Disney/RobinHood'' is the story of ''Robin Hood'' but with anthropomorphic animal characters.
* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' the basic premise is that primates (including human beings) never existed and mammals evolved to develop sapience, bipedal locomotion, opposable thumbs, and the ability to speak, ending up as civilized animals with very human-like lifestyles and society but still drawing much more heavily on their animalistic traits than is usually seen with this trope.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'':
** {{Deconstructed}} by Rocket Raccoon. He's a walking, talking raccoon that can stand on two legs and hold heavy weaponry [[spoiler: because he had multiple painful experiments performed on him]].
** Also [[spoiler:ComicBook/HowardTheDuck]] at the stinger.

[[folder:Literature]]
* The animals from ''Literature/AnimalFarm'' especially the pigs.
* ''Literature/BlackDogs'' has Funny Dogs, Ferrets, Wolverines, Badgers, Polar Bears, Hyenas, ''Giant Ground Sloths'', and it is implied that humans are just another breed of Funny Animal that resemble monkeys.
* ''Literature/BraveStory'' has quite a large population of these. Of course, they're [[FantasticRacism looked down upon by some.]]
* All the characters in ''Literature/ElephantAndPiggie''.
* All the characters in the ''Literature/GeronimoStilton'' series.
* ''Literature/KoziolekMatolek''. Oddly enough, in the first few illustrations he is apparently an ordinary goat like the others, and suddenly becomes anthropomorphic once he goes on his quest.
* Findus the cat in ''Literature/PettsonAndFindus'' is this, he's basically a small child in a cat's body.
* The works of Creator/RichardScarry, particularly the ''Busytown'' books.
* All of the animals characters (With the exception of the Mcduff books) that appear in books made by RosemaryWells.
* ''Literature/SpectralShadows'' has a bunch of these in Serial 11. Going off the Synopsis Page on the Live Journal site, they're also slated to appear in other serials.
* All of the non-human sentient creatures in the world of Alan Dean Foster's ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' novels.
* ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'' makes an important distinction between animals, who are your average unintelligent beings, and Animals, who are this.
* ''Literature/TheWildOnes'' features an entire city filled with animals who can talk, wear clothes, run shops, and even be part of a gang. Yet said city takes place within a much larger human city, and the animals frequently have to worry about traps the humans put out and getting captured by animal catchers.
* Later parts in the story ''Literature/TheWindInTheWillows'' like Toad's car and Toad Hall

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/AdventuresInWonderland'' 's White Rabbit counted as this. Oddly enough, the March Hare in the same show [[SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism was more like a]] [[PettingZooPeople Petting Zoo Person]].
* {{Creator/Studio100}} series ''Bobo'' features anthropomorphic bunnies.
* Kermit (and other frogs), Piggy (and other pigs), Fozzie, Rowlf, and assorted other characters on ''Series/TheMuppetShow''. (Scooter, Bunsen, the band and the Whatnots are [[CartoonCreature probably meant to be humanish]], Statler, Waldorf and the Swedish Chef are definitely Muppet humans, and Gonzo is ... whatever.)
* In the spin-off to ''Series/KabouterPlop'' called ''Plop & de Peppers'' all three of the animal friends that is with Plop appear this way.
* Every character in ''Series/ZoobileeZoo''.
* All three of the main characters from Creator/{{Studio100}}'s ''Wizzy & Woppy''.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* OlderThanDirt: The Ancient Egyptians apparently liked funny animals. The story of ''The Mouse As Vizier'' features talking animals who have a very human political system, and several papyri depict animals such as mice, cats, hyenas, antelope, crocodiles, donkeys, monkeys, and lions playing board games, using weapons, drinking out of goblets, and playing musical instruments. Except for standing on their hind legs, they aren't anthropomorphic at all. And they completely ignore natural predator-prey relationships. They even herd livestock and ride chariots [[FurryConfusion pulled by normal animals.]]
* A fancy Sumerian lyre, dated to c. 2600 BCE, features inlay scenes that depict funny animals. A bear, jackal, and donkey play music, while a lion and an antelope serve beverages. Except for standing on their hind legs and having hands, they look like normal animals.

* Toys/{{Fabuland}}, a [[BuiltWithLego LEGO]] theme from the [[TheEighties 80s]].

[[folder:Video Games]]
* It'd be easier to list the few human characters in ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' as the sheer number of examples of funny animals in each entry in the series (including Japan-only villagers) put together could possibly fill up half of this page alone (let's just say the game's title is well deserved). The [[TokenHuman only human(s)]] in the games are the PlayerCharacter(s) and presumably their parents.
* The ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' series are full of these, especially [[TheDitz Captain]] [[ThisLoserIsYou Blubber]] & [[FatIdiot Boggy]].
* ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'' has these for most of the NPC's: Pig-men, shark-men, walrus-men, etc. Taking pictures of them with the camera names their species in the form of "[Species] Sapien."
* ''VideoGame/BrutalPawsOfFury'', a game that came out during the 16-bit fighting game boom, has a cast entirely made up of funny animals (most of them {{Half Dressed Cartoon Animal}}s)
* ''VideoGame/{{Bug}}''. Most of the arthropod enemies in the game aren't, though.
* The Mimigas from ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' are rabbit-people. Other than subsisting on flowers ([[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal and not wearing pants]]) they don't act any different than their human neighbors. (And at least two of them are humans who were magically transformed.)
* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'', well, to an extent, with Ripper Roo and Tiny Tiger who averts this somewhat.
* In ''VideoGame/CreepyCastle'', a good part of the cast are bugs like the hero, Moth.
* ''VideoGame/CrusaderKingsII'': Any number of GoodBadBugs involving Glitterhoof and Horse M.D., a pair of horses added as randomly generated characters in the ''Conclave'' and ''Reaper's Due'' {{DLC}}s. By abusing a couple of loopholes in the rules[[note]]They both have a "Horse" trait that is supposed to prevent them from being landed or marrying and producing offspring with nominally human characters, but this doesn't stop you from educating children in Horse culture and then landing them, nor Catholic rulers from nominating them as heirs to bishoprics.[[/note]], you can generate entire dynasties of horses that are as playable as any other, leading to such utter lunacy as [[http://kotaku.com/that-time-a-horse-conquered-the-ancient-world-1757913762 Empress Rainbow Dash of the (restored) Roman Empire]].
* ''VideoGame/DarkChronicle''. Dr. Dell.
* Some characters (but not all) in ''VideoGame/DynamiteDux''.
* In ''VideoGame/InheritTheEarth'' the entire cast is like this, more or less, due to humans being extinct.
* ''VideoGame/{{Lugaru}}''. And its upcoming sequel ''Overgrowth'' is a somewhat more realistic take on this trope.
* Morgana from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' is a [[TalkingAnimal Talking Cat]] that sits in chairs, picks locks, shows you how to make thief tools like smoke bombs, and learns to be an auto mechanic in his spare time. In the MentalWorld of the Palace, he also turns into an anthropomorphized form that walks on two legs, fights with swords and slingshots, and wears a bandana and a UtilityBelt.
* Pretty much everyone in ''VideoGame/{{Pizza Express}}''
* Several [=NPCs=] in ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'' are anthropomorphized versions of such animals like horses, deers, peacocks, goats, roosters, frogs, hedgehogs and rams.
* ''Franchise/SlyCooper'': Everybody— most are humanoid animals, with some variants as deemed stylistically appropriate. The Contessa is the greatest departure, being a spider-centaur creature, while Arpeggio the parrot and Sir Raleigh the frog are essentially unmodified animals.
* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' stars various FunnyAnimal characters who live alongside humans. Sonic's "animal friends" from the classic games are the exception (they're {{Partially Civilized Animal}}s).
* ''VideoGame/TailConcerto'' and ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'' are set in a world of {{floating continent}}s in the sky, populated by dog-people and cat-people. While they mostly act like humans, the dogs are prone to chewing on bones and their national pastime seems to be frisbee-cathing.
* ''VideoGame/ToonTownOnline'' is an MMORPG based around {{FunnyAnimal}}s.
* ''VideoGame/TyTheTasmanianTiger'', {{FollowTheLeader much like}} ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'', both of them staring obscure Australian mammals.
* The majority of monsters in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' are anthropomorphized animals like goats, dogs, cats, fish, etc. Some of them play the trope fully straight while others are basically semi intelligent but still act mostly animal.
* ''VideoGame/UrbanRivals'': Most of the cast is human, but all of the Jungo clan falls under this.

* A third of the population of ''Literature/MetamorKeep'' is like this because of an unbreakable curse, though there have been other reasons such as [[VoluntaryShapeshifting other forms of magic]] and [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent being bitten a were critter]] for why they show up. The other two curses were [[FountainOfYouth being made several years younger]] [[OlderThanTheyLook and unable to age]] and [[GenderBender becoming the opposite sex]] though it's the funny animal curse that's the most common amongst the Keepers due to a mix of [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom the writers' preference]] and because [[MostWritersAreMale Most of the writers are Adult Cisgendered Males]]
* In the ''WebOriginal/{{Paradise}}'' setting, humans are randomly, permanently transformed into Funny Animals (and occasionally [[GenderBender gender-changed]]) by causes unknown. A WeirdnessCensor renders these changes InvisibleToNormals, who continue to see the Changed as their original human selves (and genders), leading to a {{Masquerade}} on the part of the Changed in order to keep from being committed to mental institutions or worse. Eventually the WeirdnessCensor comes down, leading to TheUnmasquedWorld.

* Like WesternAnimation/AroundTheWorldWithWillyFog, ''WesternAnimation/AroundTheWorldInEightyDaysBurbankAnimation'' takes place in a world of anthropomorphic animals. Unlike Willy Fog, however, Passepartout is a monkey and Phileas Fogg is a fox.
* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans''.
* Many characters in ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' including the eponymous equine. Plenty of humans too though.
* Everyone in ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' straddles the line between this and TalkingAnimal, with a healthy dose of FurryConfusion for good measure. The main cast usually falls squarely into Funny Animal territory, though at times might slip into TalkingAnimal (Chip and Dale more than the others, as they will sometimes run on all fours like actual chipmunks. Monterey and Gadget almost never behave like actual mice). Most other rodents in the series are also portrayed fairly consistently as Funny Animal. Cats generally tread both sides, while dogs and almost everything else tend to be TalkingAnimal exclusively. FurryConfusion occurs with pretty much ''everything'', particularly [[NoCartoonFish fish]] and incidental or background characters.
* Most of the "core" stars of the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts - WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse, WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}}, and so on. WesternAnimation/{{Pluto|The Pup}} would be an exception, however; as Mickey's pet dog, he's a NearlyNormalAnimal.
* WesternAnimation/CountDuckula. Lampshaded in the WhosOnFirst episode:
--> DUCKULA: You mean human sacrifice?
--> YUBI: Well, almost human sacrifice, give or take a feather.
* ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog''. While everyone acknowledges that Courage is a dog and usually treat him as such, other Funny Animal characters get by with no reference at all to their species. Courage's own characterization as a dog slips sometimes. Often the alien/evil entity/villain of the day (who is sometimes also a talking animal) will treat Courage on the same level as the humans. Often by trying to kill them.
* Brian Griffin of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' usually falls squarely into this category, albeit with occasional TalkingAnimal moments (particularly in the first RUN of the series, where they were more frequent).
* All members of the London Clan in ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' resemble humanoid animals with feathered wings. The Mutates are a genetically-engineered, chimeric version.
* Rex the cockroach from ''{{WesternAnimation/Gawayn}}'' seems to be somewhere between this and CivilisedAnimal
* The entire cast of ''WesternAnimation/TheGetAlongGang''.
* Most of the cast (sans Fee and Foo) of ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks''.
* ''WesternAnimation/IAmNotAnAnimal''. The animals were genetically engineered to talk and were raised with celebrity magazines photoshopped so half the people had animal heads. They escaped and didn't realise that animals aren't supposed to talk.
* While 90% of the ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' cast are monsters and demons, this trope is surprisingly common. The two most prominent being the [[WickedWeasel Weavils]] and the [[AffablyEvil Schwartzentiger]]. We've also seen pandas, a goat, a rhino, a crab, and an ape.
* On ''WesternAnimation/JoeAndJack'', Jack is a cat, but walks and behaves just like a boy and in practical terms seems more like a brother of Joe of about the same age, or maybe a little younger. His character model even looks a lot like Joe, except different coloring, whiskers, cat ears and a tail. Enhancing the resemblance is that Joe wears a full-body costume of an animal all the time.
* All the characters on ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'':
** WesternAnimation/PorkyPig is consistently show living and working among humans, with ''WesternAnimation/ACornyConcerto'' even giving Elmer's usual role as the one hunting Bugs. Porky is probably like this because he was created earlier than most other ''Looney Tunes'' (who tend to be {{Civilized Animal}}s), in an era when Disney had made Funny Animals universal.
** WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck [[AnthropomorphicZigZag varies a lot]] between a CivilizedAnimal living in the woods or a pond and a Funny Animal living among humans, often as Porky's neighbor, partner, or similar.
** WesternAnimation/BugsBunny straddles the line between Funny Animal and Civilized Animal. He has been [[AnthropomorphicShift moving steadily towards the Funny Animal Camp over the years]]. In ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', he is almost completely a Funny Animal, with a large suburban house, a Prius, and a good income stream through royalties from his inventions. ''WesternAnimation/WabbitALooneyTunesProduction'' moves him back to being a CivilizedAnimal living in a hole in the ground.
* ''WesternAnimation/LosTrotaMusicos'' are a band of domestic animal musicians. What's more funny than that?
* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'':
** One-off antagonist Zeb (a zebra) from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends''. Rather jarring given that most of the cast are also equines, but are not anthropomorphized to the extent Zeb is.
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'': The characters may look like ''My Little Pony'' ponies, but their behaviors and concerns are human. You know you're dealing with a SliceOfLife show about human-like characters when the kids stand around discussing their problems with their parents as they wash the dinner dishes.
* The Goof Nutz Pizza band from the first epidsode of ''WesternAnimation/NapoleonDynamite''.
* All of the characters in ''WesternAnimation/PigGoatBananaCricket'' except for [[AnthropomorphicFood Banana]].
* ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}:
** Popeye encountered one of these in "The Hungry Goat". The short overall felt like more of a Creator/TexAvery cartoon than a Popeye cartoon.
** Funny animals are featured prominently in "Popeye The Sailor" and "I Eats My Spinach". Fleischer Studios was known to use these in the WesternAnimation/BettyBoop cartoons, where the Popeye series branched out of.
* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'':
** This is both played this straight and averted with the main characters. Mordecai the bluejay might as well be a human, seeing as he doesn't eat like a bird, fly, or do anything else bird-like. Rigby the [[RascallyRaccoon raccoon]], on the other hand, is shown to dig through trash and run on all fours, but otherwise acts almost as human-like. ''Lampshaded'' in this conversation:
--->''Mordecai'': Dude, don't dig in the trash. It's not natural.
--->''Rigby'': You're not natural!
** Of note is that in the ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' universe, everybody who can talk is considered human, and nobody really seems to question it.
* Many of the characters of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''. A few non-animal (nor human) characters show up from time to time.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSchnookumsAndMeatFunnyCartoonShow'': Schnookums and Meat themselves, plus many of the characters on the ''Pith Possum'' segments.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScrubMeMamaWithABoogieBeat'', although instead of making ordinary monkeys act like people, they make black people anthro monkeys.
* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants.''
* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin''. Baloo started as a TalkingAnimal [[Disney/TheJungleBook living in the jungles of India]] and wound up an Anthro flying a plane and living in a city.
* Hamton J. Pig from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', being based on Porky, is the only animal member of the cast who lives in a completely human house, even though it's next to the mud piles of other pigs. Otherwise, the cast [[AnthropomorphicShift tend more toward Funny Animals]] than the original ''Looney Tunes'', as they attend school (albeit for an education [[AnimatedActors on being a cartoon character]]), frequently use urban facilities like stores, and are shown socializing with each other in a non-hostile context.
* Although some of them dip near-ish the TalkingAnimal end of the spectrum sometimes, the cast of ''WesternAnimation/TuffPuppy'' is essentially this. Although they retain some animal like mannerisms (Dudley, a dog, has a superhuman sense of smell and an unfortunate habit of chewing his own butt, and his partner Kitty loses all self-control and star whenever she sees a mouse or a ball of string
* The cast of the Franco-German animated series ''Turtle Island''.
* The main characters of ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'', They look like bears, they walk on four legs sometimes, and they live in a cave, but they otherwise act human. Most actual humans in the show don't see anything odd about this. Notable that they are, in fact, recognized as bears since they befriend Chloe after she studies them for her college project on bears. They've also been known to act like wild bears under times of stress, such as when Grizz decides they need to become more primal.
* On ''WesternAnimation/WildAnimalBabyExplorers'', the cast members are basically this, given their speech, use of technology and their general concerns of exploring and learning. They're ''Wild Animal Baby Explorers'' because it's ''wild animals'' that they're exploring, not they themselves that are wild animals.
* All of the cast of ''WesternAnimation/WowWowWubbzy!''
