Which makes Zootopia a modern civilized world that is entirely animal."''²-->-- '''''WesternAnimation/{{Zootopia}}'' teaser trailer'''²²A whole animal universe is man-made, with shops, houses, technology etc. except that animals take the place of people. In some works, all kinds of animals take the place of people; all animals are human surrogates and considered equals to each other. In other works, some animals or types of animals take the place of people while [[FurryConfusion others are considered normal animals]]. Sometimes, only one species of animal is a human surrogate. There are no people in the setting, except ''maybe'' a TokenHuman or two.²²In some works where some animals or types of animals take the place of people and others are considered normal animals, there are both normal forms and human surrogate forms of one or more animal species.²²Can involve {{Partially Civilized Animal}}s, {{Civilized Animal}}s, or {{Funny Animal}}s. {{Beast M|an}}en might also fall under this trope, though it's rarer as {{Beast M|an}}en tend to be considered a separate species to their animal look-alike. Compare SlidingScaleOfAnimalCast. Compare and contrast AlternateTooniverse, where animals (or other cartoons) and humans each have a separate world which people can cross between, as well as CastOfPersonifications, where the cast are the personifications of nonhuman things or beings given human form. Also compare and contrast LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy, where these types of characters co-exist with people. If mammals are the only Funny Animals in the setting, then you've got yourself WorldOfMammals. Also contrast with FurryLens, in which the cast are really humans but are symbolically depicted as talking animals.²²May result in FurryConfusion and/or CarnivoreConfusion. ²----²!! Examples:²²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder: Advertising/[=PSAs=]]]²* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87lUoaGhUbU "Sexual Violence with]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilglSpeqpx8 the Birds and the Bees"]] are a couple of animated [=PSAs=] meant to teach teens about sexual harassment, and features anthropomorphic [[VisualPun birds and bees]] depicted as high schoolers, as well as a lot of puns and visual gags revolving around the fact that they are such.²* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIXKSALkiO0 This MiO advert.]]²[[/folder]]²[[folder: AnimeAndManga]]²* LittleBitBeastly example: ''Anime/DogDays''²* The cast of the 1986 series ''Anime/MapleTown'' is mostly cute anthropomorphic animals. The exception is the main antagonist, [[SavageWolf scary wolf]] who threatens to kidnap and eat the young animals. Patty is brave enough to confront him at times and even rescues some of her friends from him occasionally. ²* The Kemono manga ''Mekko Rarekko'', which features a cast of anthropomorphic canines.²* Unlike the games (where Sonic naturally lives on a planet [[LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy alongside humans]]), it's shown in ''Anime/SonicX'' that Sonic comes from a planet that lacks humans. [[BigBad Dr. Eggman]] was [[spoiler:revealed to have been born on Earth]]. Sonic and his friends, however, are stuck on Earth for almost the entirety of the first series (first two seasons outside of Japan).²* All the characters in ''Anime/AggressiveRetsuko'' are [[FunnyAnimal Funny Animals]], they mostly act like humans except for a few [[FurryReminder Furry Reminders]].²* The obscure direct-to-video series ''Mother Goose Songs & Rhyme'' features cute anthropomorphic animals as various Mother Goose characters.²* ''Anime/ShimaShimaToraNoShimajiro''²* ''Literature/KaiketsuZorori'' features a world of {{Funny Animal}}s with the human creator of the show coming in to break the fourth wall ever now and then.²* The various continuities of ''Anime/KemonoFriends'' are populated exclusively by the titular Friends, [[UpliftedAnimal animals transformed into]] LittleBitBeastly [[AlwaysFemale girls]] by [[GreenRocks Sandstar]], with the exception of [[TokenHuman the protagonists]].²* ''Manga/{{Beastars}}'' takes place in a society made up entirely of anthropomorphic animals, with a lot of tension between carnivores and herbivores. While it's easy to draw comparisons between this series and ''WesternAnimation/{{Zootopia}}'' for its similar themes, ''Beastars'' is notable for taking a darker and more realistic route, with carnivores having to struggle with maintaining control of their instincts while herbivores try to stay confident despite their fears of said instincts.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Asian Animation]]²* ''Animation/{{Dreamkix}}'' is filled with animals and no humans are seen at all.²* The only known human who ever appears in ''Animation/OurFriendXiongXiaoMi'' is SantaClaus; other than that, the characters in that show are all anthropomorphic animals.²* ''Animation/PleasantGoatAndBigBigWolf'''s main cast entirely comprises anthropomorphic goats and wolves.²* ''Animation/RimbaRacer'' has {{Funny Animal}}s spanning the world.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Comic Books]]²* ''ComicBook/IKilledAdolfHitler'' is set in a world of {{Funny Animal}}s. This includes Hitler.²* {{Funny Animal}}s example: ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}'', though it's implied to be more of the author's imagination at work using different animals to represent different groups of people (the Jews are mice, the Germans are cats, the Polish are pigs, the French are frogs, the Americans are dogs, etc.).²** Less ''implied'' and more ''outright stated''; the AuthorAvatar briefly how he should be depicting his girlfriend, since she's ''not'' Jewish (by birth) and is in fact French. She initially suggests a rabbit, and then says that since she's converted to Judaism, she should be a mouse also.²%%*''ComicBook/OmahaTheCatDancer''²* The ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse and many of the comics in the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse don't feature humans, unlike the Disney cartoons they're based on. They're rodent and duck centric.²* The world of ''ComicBook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew'', officially named "Earth-C" in the Creator/DCComics multiverse system (post-ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis, Earth-C was renamed "Earth-26"). Earth-C is designated as the world where most of DC's Golden and Silver Age funny-animal comics ("The Dodo and the Frog," "Peter Porkchops," etc.) take place.²* Duckworld, where ComicBook/HowardTheDuck comes from, is populated solely by anthropomorphic ducks.²* ''ComicBook/FritzTheCat'' and its [[WesternAnimation/FritzTheCat film]] [[WesternAnimation/TheNineLivesOfFritzTheCat adaptations]].²* ''{{Horndog}}''.²* ''ComicBook/{{Blacksad}}'' is one of the currently most famous examples in the European comic book world, starring mostly animals of all kinds with very human-like bodies.²* ''ComicBook/{{Grandville}}'', is a about a badger police detective in a world which is mostly {{Funny Animal}}s with a minor (servant) population of humans. The latter become more significant in the sequels, starting out as largely a background gag.²* ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'', which takes place in Japan where every single animal except horses and lizards are anthropomorphized. [[BigBad Lord Hikiji]] on the other hand...²* ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' takes place on Mobius, a planet populated by anthropomorphic animals. Unlike ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'', there are no humans naturally on Mobius and it is a separate planet from Earth. Humans do pop up (as alien invaders) in one arc, however for the most part Robotnik is the sole human on Mobius.²* The cartoon world of [[ComicBook/SpiderHam Peter Porker, the Amazing Spider-Ham]], is filled with a wide variety of cartoon animal superheroes and villains. Initially appearing in his own book and ''What The?'' in the 80s, we see further glimpses of it the the ''ComicBook/WebWarriors'' comic series.²* Subverted in ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog''. Originally, the comics seemed to take place in one of these. However, once the games started explicitly humans in-series in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', the comic couldn't ignore them for long. Eventually it was shown that Mobius was [[EarthAllAlong a futuristic Earth]] where animals became the dominant species after being mutated long ago. Humans live in a secluded area and have [[SpeculativeBiology since devolved]] into aggressive, four-fingered "Overlanders" (though a few normal humans still exist).²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Film - Animation]]²* Disney's ''WesternAnimation/RobinHood'' has a cast composed fully of anthropomorphized animals, except for Sir Hiss, and even he got a bit of anthropomorphization by having him slither around with his neck constantly elevated. It also managed to avoid having regular animals coexist with the anthropomorphic animals, particularly at the end of the film, where they actually [[TheUnreveal don't even show who or what was pulling the carriage during the finale.]]²* Disney's ''WesternAnimation/ChickenLittle'' is set in a world mostly inhabited by anthropomorphic farm animals who encounter non-animal aliens.²* ''WesternAnimation/{{Zootopia}}'' is set in a world where all mammals are sapient, and plays it up in the film's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9lmhBYB11U teaser trailer.]] The movie itself [[DeconstructedTrope is a comprehensive deconstruction of the logistics and consequences of having dozens of different animal species living together]].²* The ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' franchise takes place in a version of ancient UsefulNotes/{{China}} where the animal styles of kung fu are all performed by actual animals.²* ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheGuardiansTheOwlsOfGaHoole'' has a cast of PartiallyCivilizedAnimal owls. In the book and movie, owls do metalwork in forges, drink tea, and write and read books, but they basically look like normal owls and don't even have FeatherFingers. There's talk that suggests that humans used to exist, but are gone.²* The storybook world from ''WesternAnimation/RockADoodle'', although the protagonist is a human boy [[BalefulPolymorph transformed into a cat]].²* All of the ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' films do this with prehistoric mammals. [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Humans did appear in the first film, though]].²* ''WesternAnimation/SurfsUp'' takes place in a world populated by anthropomorphic penguins.²* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' is between this and MouseWorld with animals found in the American Southwest like rodents and lizards. A bit of FurryConfusion and AnimalsNotToScale results in a few scenes too.²* The Hungarian animated film ''Animation/AzErdoKapitanya'' takes place in a world like this, with a [[HeroicDog dog policeman]] chasing a [[CatsAreMean cat criminal]].²* ''Animation/CatCity'' takes place on "Planet X", which is very similar to Earth, but inhabited by anthropomorphic animals (mostly cats and mice, with the occasional rat and bat thrown in the mix).²* The Turkish animated film "Max Maceraları" and it's sequels is taken place in this setting which is set in the Middle Ages ruled by a king lion and queen.²* ''WesternAnimation/RockDog'' is set in a world circa TheEighties with both American and Chinese influences (appropriately, since the film is an InternationalCoproduction).²* ''WesternAnimation/{{Sing}}'' takes place in a world populated by anthropomorphic animals who performed music.²* Disney-Pixar's ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' series is inhabited entirely by Funny Vehicles, with no living creatures except plants.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Fan Fiction]]²* ''Fanfic/LXGTempestRewrite'': One exists in the form of the state of [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Calisota]].[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Literature]]²* The ''Busytown'' series created by Creator/RichardScarry is filled with nothing but friendly humanized animals going through their daily lives. The series mostly stars a cat and a worm.²* ''Literature/TheBerenstainBears'' books and TV show, but with bears specifically.²%%* The ''Sweet Pickles'' book series combines this with AlphabeticalThemeNaming.²* All of Creator/KyellGold's novels are primarily set in universes void of humans. Strangely though, anthropomorphism only applies to land-based mammals, and Lee from ''Literature/OutOfPosition'' mentioned that he once had a [[FurryConfusion pet lizard]].²* The ''Literature/GeronimoStilton'' books and their AnimatedAdaptation do this with mice specifically.²* ''Literature/{{Ysengrimus}}'' is pretty much the book that spawned a whole genre by itself, including many other tales of Literature/ReynardTheFox. Not surprising, since the book uses anthropomorphic fable characters to make a satire about medieval times.²* The ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' and both its AnimatedAdaptation and graphic novel one. A world of humanized animals living in a permanent medieval time period, it's half {{Sugarbowl}}, half world of war. ''Redwall'' mainly contains small woodland animals such as mice, hares, rats, and badgers however non-anthropomorphic looking (though still as sapient as the other characters) birds appear.²* Pick any book made by Creator/RosemaryWells. Most of her children's books star an anthropomorphic animal character such as a raccoon, rabbit, or cat. ²* ''Literature/{{Babar}}'' is a curious example, as it begins with normal animals (primarily elephants and rhinos) who then learn to walk and talk like humans.²* ''Literature/TheGreenEmber'' world is comprised almost entirely of anthropomorphic rabbits, wolves, and giant birds of prey in a setting similar to TheMiddleAges.²%%* The ''Literature/MissBindergarten'' series.²* ''Literature/TheBuilders'' setting is composed of anthropormorphic animals in a [[TheWestern Western]] time period.²* In Anna Dewdney's ''Literature/LlamaLlama'' books and the AnimatedAdaptation, Llama Llama's world is populated by animals such as llamas, gnus, goats and in the television series sheep and giraffes, among others. Humans are nowhere to be seen.²* ''Literature/TheArmadilloWithNoHeart'' takes place in such a world, which is also a WorldOfMammals, with all character to appear in the story being anthropomorphic armadillos or hedgehogs. While they mostly behave like humans (including living in humanlike houses and using typewriters), there is the occasional FurryReminder such as the armadillo protagonist curling into a ball to protect himself from wolves.²* ''Literature/TheBadGuys'' book series takes place in a world of anthropomorphic animals. Despite this, dog kennels are treated as both prisons and standard dog kennels and chickens still live in caged farms (and also risk being eaten by Mr. Snake).²* ''Literature/SunderedLands'' takes place in a setting similar to TheMiddleAges where everyone is some kind of anthropomorphic animal, and no humans are so much as even referenced.²* ''Literature/LittleCritter'' and his family are CartoonCreature critters, all other characters in the series are anthropomorphic animals of some sort.²* The [[MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness soft science fiction]] novel ''Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard'' is set in a ''galaxy'' of anthropomorphic mammals, although the focus is on the titular elephants. [[spoiler:All can trace their ancestry back to [[UpliftedAnimal "raised mammals"]] genetically engineered by humans]].²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Pinball]]²* ''Pinball/PoliceForce'' takes place in a world populated entirely by FunnyAnimals.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Tabletop [=RPGs=]]]²* ''TabletopGame/{{Ironclaw}}'' and ''Jadeclaw'' are LowFantasy [=RPGs=] in a world where seemingly all mammals and birds are anthropomorphic. Calabria, the setting of Ironclaw, is divided between four major houses ruled by foxes, horses, boars, and wolves, but their vassals and subjects comprise dozens of other species.²* ''TabletopGame/UrbanJungle'' is a FilmNoir-inspired RPG from the same makers as Ironclaw that takes place in a world similar to our own early 20th century, but with animals as people.²* ''TabletopGame/HcSvntDracones'' is a [[HumanitysWake Post-human]] {{Cyberpunk}} RPG where a MegaCorp repopulated the solar system with genetically engineered human-animal hybrids called "Vectors" following a nuclear war. The few remaining humans either modified themselves into Vectors or died off.²* ''TabletopGame/{{Crimestrikers}}'' is set on Creaturia, a multi-species world populated not only by [[BeastMan humanoid]] mammals, birds and reptiles, but a race of FishPeople called Hydrerans. Dragons existed (in the form of {{Draconic Humanoid}}s) until they were [[FinalSolution hunted to extinction]] long ago, but the species is revived due to genetic engineering. ²* ''TabletopGame/WildSkies: Europa Tempest'' is set in a world of anthropomorphic animals, but centered on a DieselPunk UsefulNotes/{{Europe}} that is struggling to put itself back together after UsefulNotes/WorldWarI ground into a stalemate. Players usually take on the role of mercenaries.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Toys]]²%%* The ''Toys/{{Fabuland}}'' theme of Franchise/{{LEGO}}.²* Every incarnation of ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' after the original generation of toys lacks humans and it's composed entirely of animals, mainly the titular ponies. Although with ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'' there are now plenty of toys of the pony characters as humans (albeit with with [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation very unnatural skintones]]).²* ''Franchise/SylvanianFamilies'' stars a group of anthropomorphic animals mostly on animals families like bunnies and cats.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Video Games]]²* In ''VideoGame/AnimalJam'', everyone in Jamaa is a CivilizedAnimal, even though [[FurryConfusion non-anthropomorphic animals exist]].²* The ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' series is a fictional case of this, taking place in a land where only Pokémon live. While they are aware of humans, they never really show up; with the exception of the [[InvoluntaryTransformation human-turned-Pokémon protagonist]], of course. ²* ''VideoGame/StarFox'' takes place in the Lylat System, which is populated entirely by all kinds of {{Funny Animal}}s IN SPACE (no, we don't know how a fox got into space). The original team alone was composed by a fox, a rabbit, a bird, and a frog, with a monkey as the antagonist.²* ''VideoGame/SpyFox'' is full of [[FullyDressedCartoonAnimal mostly-dressed cartoon animals]] (though many of the males go barefoot), with no humans in sight. The main team is composed of a fox, a monkey, and a duck; while the main villains are a goat, a flea, and a poodle.²* ''VideoGame/SlyCooper'' is a weird example. Although most of the cast consists of {{Funny Animal}}s, both the second ''and'' third game contained [[FurryConfusion feral bears, sharks, and wolves that didn't talk or wear clothes]].²* ''Creator/RandleSimRacing'' is full of {{Funny Animal}}s, especially birds and reptiles, but a few prominent mammals exist, and even fewer humans out of them. Many race cars, and interact with unfamiliar humans without question.²* ''VideoGame/BrutalPawsOfFury'' is a fighting game with a cast of {{Funny Animal}}s.²* ''VideoGame/LastCaseTheDisappearanceOfAmandaKane'' is set in a FilmNoir world where the casts seems to be composed of clothed stags.²%%* In ''VideoGame/InheritTheEarth'' the Morphs have done ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.²* ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' and ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'' both have casts composed of a large variety of marine animals, most of them anthropomorphic and with [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]] squid and later octopuses - the Inklings and Octolings - as the main focus. One notable detail is that there's a grand total of ''two'' true mammals in the cast (Judd and Li'l Judd, who are cats); everyone else is, at best, a vertebrate fish, with the rest being invertebrates. This is a little unusual for this trope, especially since ''Splatoon'' doesn't take place underwater.²* ''VideoGame/CarriesOrderUp'' is populated entirely by anthropomorphic sea creatures, from a crab waitress to an eel businessman.²* The characters of ''VideoGame/AviaryAttorney'' are all {{Half Human Hybrid}}s with animal heads, though in background art and such that involves crowds the crowds usually have human faces.²* The setting of ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheWoolBall'' and its sequel. The main characters are hedgehogs inhabiting a planet that gets attacked by evil cats from outer space. The sequel also includes sapient sheep and polar bears. ²* Played with in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog''. In the first several games, it seemed like this trope was being used. Besides [[TokenHuman the oddman out]], Dr. Robotnik, there were only FunnyAnimal characters (possibly due to the games taking place in islands). Thus most western works portrayed the characters living on a planet named "Mobius" where only anthropomorphic animals existed. However, according to Japanese canon humans ''did'' exist. They were just offscreen, bar a few characters such as Robotnik and [[VideoGame/TailsSkypatrol Witchcart]]. This was supported by the series having urban-themed levels since the beginning, and by ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogTheScreenSaver Sonic the Screensaver]]'' and ''Anime/SonicTheAnimation'' ''outright showing Sonic and his friends coexisting with humans''. ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' did away with any doubts on the matter, featuring hubworlds filled with human [=NPCs=], making it clear that the characters [[LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy live on a fictional version of Earth alongside humans]].²* The titular kingdom of ''VideoGame/{{Armello}}'' is populated by [[CivilizedAnimal civilized animals]]... well, civilized ''enough'' for them to engage in a cut-throat battle for the throne when their king falls to madness and decay. The player characters come from one of five clans (Wolf, Rabbit, Rat, Bear, or the catch-all of Bandit) that influence the kingdom, but card art and in-game quest-givers extend the population across a large span of european mammals, throwing in reptiles and amphibians as well.²* ''VideoGame/ToothAndTail'' is set in a world of funny animals that resembles early 20th century Russia. Because all the animals [[ConspicuousConsumption want to eat meat]], [[CarnivoreConfusion and meat has to come from animals (who are all intelligent)]], this causes a CivilWar that makes up the events of the game.²* ''VideoGame/RivalsOfAether'' takes place in a world inhabited entirely by [[BeastMan beast men]], where no humans appear at all. This conceit extends to the {{guest fighter}}s: VideoGame/{{Ori|AndTheBlindForest}} is a somewhat vulpine CartoonCreature, and though VideoGame/ShovelKnight wears full-body armor that conceals his species, his [[FishPeople fish head]] is revealed in a secret taunt. Of course, {{game mod}}s can easily bump the game up to LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy²* ''VideoGame/InvestiGatorTheCaseOfTheBigCrime'' takes place in a world of cartoony animals. Although there aren't too many characters, there is still a relatively diverse choice of species. There are even anthropomorphic fish, which is [[NoCartoonFish a rarity in most stories]].²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Web Animation]]²%%* ''WebAnimation/{{Audience}}''²* ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' focuses on a group of multicolored animals SpeakingSimlish as they go on various adventures--[[BlackComedy and die in gruesome and/or impossible ways]].²* ''WebAnimation/TrueTail'' combines this trope with HighFantasy. The heroes are six adventurers (a cat, a rabbit, a bear, a fox, a phoenix, and a half-dragon/half-sheep hybrid) fighting an evil sorcerer (a vulture) and his undead army. ²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Webcomics]]²%%* Lampshaded in ''Webcomic/NamirDeiter'' when Tipper tries eating cat food because of her species but Snickers reminds Tipper that she has a human digestive tract. ²%%* ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}''²%%* ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}''²* ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie'' plays with this trope. The main characters are two fox children and their single parents, one of whom is a dragon. However, figures from actual history (such as several American presidents and Music/JohnLennon) are mentioned, although they're never shown.²* The titular characters in ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'' are a rabbit and a wolf who [[InterspeciesRomance are]] HappilyMarried, which is a big deal on their world since predator species are allowed to eat prey species. [[spoiler:It was eventually revealed that the characters live on a [[EarthAllAlong futuristic Earth]] where [[HumanitysWake humans have gone extinct]]. And then it was revealed that they live on a parallel Earth with a strong connection to a world of humans. The TimeyWimeyBall may be involved]].²* ''Webcomic/{{Wurr}}'': [[{{Xenofiction}} No humans at all]]. All talking animals seem to fall within one of three species (or subspecies) of [[CivilizedAnimal civilized—albeit still quadrupedal—dog]].²%%*''Webcomic/CodeNameHunter''²* ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest'': All characters are rabbits, with the occasional cat.²* ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' has an entire [[SpaceOpera galaxy]] of {{Funny Animal}}s, complete with planets named for different species. ²%%* ''Webcomic/BeyondTheWesternDeep''²%%* ''Webcomic/PoppyOpossum''²* Downplayed in ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}'', in which only cats and dogs are civilized.²* The eponymous main characters of ''Webcomic/ChuckAndBeans'' are anthropomorphic animals, specifically a rabbit and a dog, respectively. The few background characters that appear are always other anthropomorphic animals.²* The owl people in ''Webcomic/RealmOfOwls'' are the comic's equivalent of humans. There are also other anthropomorphic animals that have human intelligence, like [[https://realmofowls.com/comics/saviour-versus-gatherer the Beast Lord who is a long-spined cat]].²* The cast of ''[[Webcomic/FifteenMinds Blue Moon Blossom]]'' consists of cartoony minimalist animals with what appear to be human levels of intelligence and reasoning.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Web Original]]²* ''Literature/ThePiratesCoveredInFur'' is a story filled with anthropomorphic animals and no humans in sight. The only exception is the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot giant robot dragon]], which doesn't speak and acts feral. ²* ''Website/{{Neopets}}'' was made into one of these a few years after its founding, with the title pets serving as the stand-in for humans, so the Petpets serve as stand-ins for animals.²* The music video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbQgXeY_zi4 Lone Digger]] by Music/CaravanPalace is about a bar fight between a bunch of anthropomorphic animals.²* Also, the music video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJinWua98NA&feature=youtu.be Kangaroo Court]] by Music/CapitalCities is about a zebra is sentenced to prison.²* ''Literature/TailsOfTheBountyHunter'' takes place on planet Drorix, which is populated entirely by [[BeastMan anthros]] and aliens as opposed to anthros and humans like on planet Tero.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Western Animation]]²* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' takes place in a world populated by {{Funny Animal}}s such as bears, aardvarks, and cats. In fact, it is lampshaded when Arthur and his friends are watching a self-parody of the cartoon. [[Literature/{{Arthur}} The original books]] took place in a LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy environment, however eventually the TokenHuman Tibble twins and their grandmother were {{retcon}}ned into bears.²* Many of the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts featuring WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse, WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck and WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}}. Everyone is an animal, [[FurryConfusion humanized or not]]. [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Early shorts]] had Mickey living amongst humans (likely to go with Walt's belief that [[FurryDenial Mickey was a human who looked like a mouse to the viewers]]), however eventually that was phased out for everyone being an animal. ''Most'' characters are pretty anthropomorphic (they talk, wear clothes, and walk upright) but there are a few animals who act like animals (Pluto is probably the most famous). Which end of the scale Chip and Dale fall on varies; in the older shorts where they were foils of Donald they didn't wear clothing and sometimes ran around on all fours, but by the time they got their [[WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers own afternoon cartoon]] they were much more human-like.²* Several ''WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon'' series, such as ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'' and ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'', and ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop''. Same as the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts, all of them are animals. ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' on the other hand eventually fell within the LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy category.²** ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' maintains the lack of humans, with the exception of the "Quack Pack" episode, where the family is trapped in a TV sitcom with a human audience. The characters are unfamiliar with humans and refer to them as "horrible flesh-faced monsters", confirming that this trope normally applies.²%%* ''WesternAnimation/WowWowWubbzy''²* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' combines this with MouseWorld to create a setting primarily populated by fish and other marine animals.²* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'' stars a group of FunnyAnimal children consisting of a penguin, moose, hippo, kangaroo, and a CartoonCreature that resembles an insect.²* ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy'''s main characters are a FemaleFelineMaleMutt duo who are heroic spies. Their boss is a flea, and all the other characters are various species.²* ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' is primarily cats and dogs, but other kinds of animals are seen prominently, then there's also the occasional CartoonCreature like [[IronicName Mr. Sunshine.]]²* ''Literature/MaxAndRuby'' (second TV series based on books by Creator/RosemaryWells) takes place in a world populated by rabbits. Unusually, Ruby's toys are clearly human dolls.²* Another series based on Wells' books is ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool''. There are no humans whatsoever and the main character is a raccoon. Other animal types include cats, mice and bulldogs. They behave almost entirely like humans, with only a very rare FurryReminder.²%%* ''WesternAnimation/TurboDogs''²* ''WesternAnimation/AngelinaBallerina'', both the CivilizedAnimal[=/=]FunnyAnimal world in books and the original version of the show, and the newer world in the CGI version.²* CivilizedAnimal example: ''Literature/{{Franklin}}''. The protagonist is an anthropomorphic turtle and two of his best friends are a bear cub and fox kit. It is, apparently, Earth, as Australia is explicitly mentioned by name and both maps and globes have been depicted that match the Earth.²* {{Justified|Trope}} in the ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' "Bear City" segments. A meteor crashed to earth, and the inhabitants of the town went underground in order to escape its effect. One of the unrealized effects was to make bears start acting like people (but they couldn't talk), taking the places of people in that society.²%%* ''BabarTheAdventuresOfBadou''²%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Olivia}}''²%%* ''Turtle Island''²* ''WesternAnimation/TheBremenAvenueExperience'' is a SettingUpdate of ''Literature/TheBremenTownMusicians'', and its characters (a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster) are based on the animals from the original tale.²* ''WesternAnimation/AlmostNakedAnimals'' takes place in a hotel full of shaved animals in their underwear.²* The main setting of ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}'', Keep Away Island, is this with MixAndMatchCritters, but humans are presumed to exist in the rest of the world, as most of the characters were created by one.²* Rare plant example: ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'', where all of the characters are either talking fruit or vegetables.²%%* Another fruit example: ''WesternAnimation/CoconutFredsFruitSaladIsland''.²* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', and from the same creator, ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' and ''WesternAnimation/LetsGoLuna'' are almost entirely this. A few {{Cartoon Creature}}s and {{Animate Inanimate Object}}s have appeared in all three shows though.²* ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'': Compared to Greenblatt's previous series, ''Chowder'' (which is LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy ), ''Harvey Beaks'' is this, with the characters generally being forest animals like birds, rabbits, skunks, foxes, bears, boars, and what not. There are also a number of {{Cartoon Creature}}s too, such as Fee and Foo.²* ''WesternAnimation/WordWorld'', where all of the inhabitants are animals shaped like their names.²* ''WesternAnimation/SuperSecretSecretSquirrel'' has an all-animal cast, unlike the original ''WesternAnimation/SecretSquirrel'' series, which took place in a LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy world.²* ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' is set on an all-cat world.²* ''WesternAnimation/DavidCopperfield1993'' is an AnthropomorphicAnimalAdaptation of [[Literature/DavidCopperfield the original novel]].²* PlayedForDrama in ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}''. In the words of the Cats' King Claudus, Third Earth is "...a world of warring animals" and his [[TheEmpire empire]] of Thundera is both the [[MasterRace great civilizer]] and the only species strong enough to keep the peace, through AnimalJingoism crossed with FantasticRacism. (His rivals the Lizards have different ideas.) Apart from a small enclave of [[{{Lilliputians}} Lilliputian]] PlantPeople, Third Earth is presented matter-of-factly as being this, until protagonist Lion-O's arrival in the series' first real AdventureTown introduces us to droves and droves of, not ''humans'' but ''[[HumanoidAliens aliens]]''...[[LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy oh my]]!²* ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' takes place in a town full of funny animals. The main character is a squirrel, his boss is a canary, his best friend is a skunk, his rival is a ferret, etc.²%%* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'''s ''WebAnimation/CheatCommandos Adventures'', where all of the inhabitants are talking The Cheats.²%%* ''WesternAnimation/SittingDucks''²* Every incarnation of ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'' on takes place in a world without humans. The fourth generation continuity, ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', is particularly rigorous about this, going to the point of editing the appearances of [[MixAndMatchCritters partly human creatures]] to remove the "partly human" bit (for instance, manticores have fully leonine heads, while a sphinx appeared with a pony's head instead of a human's). The only exception are the ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'' films, which are explicitly set in a separate universe from the one the rest of G4 takes place in.²%%* ''WesternAnimation/LennyAndSid''.²%%* ''WesternAnimation/OutThere'' takes place in a world of {{Cartoon Creature}}s.²* ''WesternAnimation/SheriffCalliesWildWest'' is a WesternSeries for pre-schoolers. Most of its characters are animals, but one of Sheriff Callie's deputies is an anthropomorphic cactus.²* ''WesternAnimation/SkunkFu'' takes place in a version of ancient China where the animal styles of kung fu are all performed by actual animals. [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Sound familiar]]?²* ''WesternAnimation/TootAndPuddle'' is definitely a more unusual example. The entire cast is animals, however, they fall at various stages along the map. Toot, Puddle and the other talking pig characters are pretty much Funny Animals and many of the other characters are too. However, Toot & Puddle live with a bird named Tulip who is generally shaped like a bird and can fly, but can still talk and is completely sentient. Certain animals, such as elephants or cows, tend to be drawn more animal-like and may sometimes perform their animal functions, such an elephant who gives rides around India. However, the elephant still gets paid for doing this job and has her own life off-duty.²* ''WesternAnimation/{{Fantomcat}}'' lived in a world like this. He was a cat; his TrueCompanions, his enemies, and the civilians they protected were all various species of animal.²* Creator/TonkoHouse's animated short ''WesternAnimation/TheDamKeeper'' is set in a world populated by FunnyAnimals containing no dialogue from the characters.²* The Russian series ''Animation/NuPogodi'' has an entire cast of anthropomorphic animals.²* The main characters of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kipper}}'' are anthropomorphic dogs and pigs. There never any humans seen and nothing to indicate any exist within that world.²* ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'' is about a world of anthropomorphic birds.²* Zigzagged in ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'': At first the episodes started and finished with a human ranger and his children having a [[DoubleAesop parallel Aesop]] and living near the characters and [[TheMasquerade all the sentient animals were supposed to coexist secretly with humans]] (showing even normal non-anthropomorphic animals as the rule). After the initial season the writers dropped completely the human characters and the world become a planet of {{Civilized Animal}}s. ²* TheRemake of ''WesternAnimation/DangerMouse''. The original series rarely ''showed'' any humans, but was intended to be a MouseWorld beneath regular London. In the new version, the Queen is a corgi, there's a hippo selling meat pies, and the rodents and other small animals have been scaled up to the point where DM's pillar box HQ is now a skyscraper ''shaped'' like a pillar box.²* Most western cartoons for ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' play this trope straight, despite the games taking place in a LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy environment. ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' and ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' came out prior to ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' and use the outdated "Mobius" concept. ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' takes place in an AlternateUniverse from the games where the characterizations are different and the world seems to be populated by anthros, as no humans other than Dr. Eggman are ever shown. Curiously averted by ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'', which had a significant number of human characters despite being (loosely) based on the early Western canon, although it was still set on Mobius and most characters were anthros. In addition, the series bible for ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' established that Mobius was a [[EarthAllAlong post-apocalyptic Earth]] that was originally populated by humans, similarly to the Archie continuity.²* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Planet Smileyland only has seven inhabitants, but all of them are anthropomorphic animals with no humans in sight.²* ''WesternAnimation/CommanderClark'' is filled with funny animals [[RecycledInSpace in space]]. The main characters are a dog, a fox, and a cat.²* ''WesternAnimation/TheTaleOfTheGreatBunny'': [[EasterBunny The Great Bunny]] lives in one. Abigail goes to it to find him when he doesn't leave Easter Eggs in her house.²* ''WesternAnimation/PeppaPig'' takes place in a world entirely populated by anthropomorphic animals with [[SpeciesSurname species surnames]]. Over the show's long run, only two humans have appeared: Santa Claus and the Queen.²[[/folder]]²----
