Cartoony Foot Stance Examples:

  • Figaro the cat from Pinocchio and later the Classic Disney Shorts was shown with a plantigrade stance, but the trope is averted in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, where he is shown with the proper digitigrade stance.
  • Lucifer from Cinderella
  • Dinah and the Cheshire Cat from the Disney animated Alice in Wonderland
  • Tigger and Piglet (he does not even have hooves) from the Winnie-the-Pooh films and TV series count as examples, even though they are supposed to be stuffed animals.
    • Eeyore does not have hooves and is digitigrade, unlike real donkeys, which have hooves and are unguligrade.

  • Bullseye the horse and Slinky the dog from the Toy Story franchise (also toys, like Tigger). Also, Hamm has feet that are just hooves.
  • The penguins from Mary Poppins.
  • Chicken Little, Buck Cluck, Goosey Loosey, and Abby Mallard ("The Ugly Duckling") from Chicken Little.
  • The penguins, Rico, Skipper, Private, and Kowalski, from Madagascar.
  • Jose Carioca, Pancho Pistoles and the Aracuan Bird in The Three Caballeros.
  • Rare live-action example: Torgo from Manos: The Hands of Fate is supposed to be a Satyr, but his legs... well, let's just say they don't work like they're supposed to, in any sense of the word. The actor had designed prostheses to make it look like he had goat hooves, but he wore them backwards.
  • Everyone from Robin Hood except Sir Hiss due to him being a snake, which doesn't have feet, and arguably Little John, bears being one of the few plantigrade mammals outside the primate and rodent orders.

  • All foxes and dogs in Vuk the Little Fox.
  • In Zootopia, animals who normally walk on their toes (such as carnivores and ungulates) are redesigned this way, so that their bipedal walk looks more natural.
