Well, okay. Emphasis on Anthropomorphic "oddities" on that one, ulthar.

I remember reading an old Disney comic where Donald Duck went duck hunting. 

Donald being his normal self and the ducks he was shooting it being normal ducks.  That's just all kinds of wrong there.

What about Tom and Jerry?  They have a hunter/prey type relationship-yet they often use human devices, walk upright, and even seem to be able to communicate with other animals.

While this might not be an "Anthropomorphic" odditiy, It's always bugged me when in cartoons or movies, you see snakes blink.  Snakes don't have eyelids.

"Spongebob Squarepants" has Mr. Crabs, a crab, who owns a restaurant that serves crab burgers.  Spongebob's pet is a snail named Gary who meows like a cat.

I thought the Crabby Patty was just named after Mr. Crabs.

Maybe...I never thought that.

But, okay, so you have an anthropomorphized crab serving beef burgers.  Perhaps a little better, but not much.   BounceGiggle

Not only that, but the crab has a whale for a daughter.  How does that even work? 

Ren and Stimpy was another one that had kind of an odd structure, where they both had mostly human characteristics, but Stimpy still used a litter box.

And then there's Chowder, which throws animals together with fantasy creatures.  You've got a human-behaving cat living with two pixies and whatever Schnitzel is (his appearance & personality kind of remind me of a badger), a human-behaving rabbit with (I think) a gremlin, a shopkeeper who kind of looks like a wooly mammoth (which throws extinct animals into the mix) and nobody uses real names for food.

BTW this thread is awesome  Smile

Brian in Family Guy I have always found to be a oddity. For one he is one of the few fully articulate and functioning animal characters in the show, even most dogs don't display the same level of humanity, yet he also gets into those uncontrollable urges that plague dogs like drinking out of the toilet, getting into the trash, and licking himself.
But the thing I find the strangest and most disturbing about Brian is the enormous amounts of bestiality that goes on and nobody mentions it. I know its a cartoon, but the women never even seem to notice he is a dog and nobody ever brings up him and having sex with human women. He went after Puterschmidts dog in one episode but it wound up that Ted Turner knocked that dog up, people seemed disturbed by that.

Another of Brian's dog-like characteristics is that he barks uncontrollably at black people. He is also deeply ashamed that he does that. I've always wondered if this was a sly nod to Sam Fuller's controversial film WHITE DOG.

He also is the father of a human child from a previous relationship he had with a woman.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
