231 Animal Pun Cartoons

All these cartoons are wild (except for the domesticated ones).

In this pun on baseball bat, we see a bat (the nocturnal animal) playing baseball.
This is all my sports knowledge.
In this pun on the running of the bulls, we see two bulls running for office, standing on a podium waving in front of two signs, one that says "Apollo/Ferdinand 2022" and "Steer us in the right direction"
Contrary to popular belief, locals really don't like this.
In this pun on seal of approval, we see a seal (the blubbery aquatic creature) giving a thumbs up and saying, "Yes, you should go for it!"
Much more agreeable than the Walrus of Disappointment
In this pun on chicken patty, we see a woman and a chicken meeting at a party. The woman says, "I'm Patty." The chicken replies, "That's so funny! My name is ALSO Patty. But you can call me --" you guessed it. Chicken Patty.
Spicy Chicken Patty is just Chicken Patty when she’s giving hot takes. #asininechickenpuns
In this pun on german shepherds, we see a man who is also a shepherd from Germany in traditional shepherd attire who has accidentally made his way to a contest for dogs, best in breed for German Shepherds.
Happy #nationaldogday to all the shepherds who happen to be from Germany!
In this pun on chicken stock, we see a chicken stock broker in front of his chart of the DOW, on the phone exclaiming "The corn IPO was a success! We're going to make a million boks!"
I put all my money in chicken stock, but it just got wet (and more flavorful). #asininechickenpuns
In this pun on BBQ classic, pulled pork, we see a different kind of pulled pork: a pig being pulled quickly by a fast runner. This kind of pulled pork is perfect for vegetarians!
A little known fact: BBQ stands for “Bring Boar Quickly.”
In this cephalopod punny version of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey, we see the Cycloptopus (the cyclops as an octopus) holding Nautilodysseus (Odysseus as a nautilus) in his cave and asking his identity. Nautilodysseus responds, "Nobody."
The most epic story ever inked
In this pun on the fantasy chess match that never happened - grandmaster Garry Kasparov vs GM Bobby Fischer - we see a match between Fisher (as a fish) and Catsparov (as a cat). The interspecies history definitely adds some tension.
If you’re going to be imagining a chess match that never happened, you might as well give yourself some creative license on their species.
In this pun on the goose that laid the golden egg, we see a Canada goose (aka Canadian goose) lay a golden egg and think "Oh, you wanted cash, eh? Sorry aboot that!"
Happy Canada Day! (Also I learned through reading many great internet debates that the species is Canada Goose, whereas a Canadian goose is just any goose that happens to deal in loonies and toonies. #themoreyouknow)
