U Prince Series: Gentle Vet - Stereotypes of animals - Netflix
When anthropomorphising an animal there are stereotypical traits which commonly tend to be associated with particular species. Often these are simply exaggerations of real aspects or behaviours of the creature in question, while other times the stereotype is taken from mythology and replaces any observation-based judgment of that animal's behavior. Some are popularised or solidified by a single particularly notable appearance in media. For example, Disney's 1942 film Bambi portrays the titular deer as an innocent, fragile animal. In any case, once they have entered the culture as widely recognized stereotypes of animals, they tend to be used both in conversation and media as a kind of shorthand for expressing particular qualities. While some authors make use of these animal stereotypes “as is”, others undermine reader expectations by reversing them, developing the animal character in contrasting ways to foil expectations or create amusement, like a fastidious pig or cowardly lion. Some modern stereotypes of animals have a long tradition dating back to Aesop's Fables, which draw upon sources that include ancient Egyptian animal tales. Aesop's stereotypes were so deeply ingrained by the time of Apollonius of Tyana that they were accepted as representative of the various types of animals' “true” natures:
And there is another charm about him, namely, that he puts animals in a pleasing light and makes them interesting to mankind. For after being brought up from childhood with these stories, and after being as it were nursed by them from babyhood, we acquire certain opinions of the several animals and think of some of them as royal animals, of others as silly, of others as witty, and others as innocent.
U Prince Series: Gentle Vet - Rabbits and hares - Netflix
The hyperactive/fast-running rabbit/hare (Again, generally not distinguished from each other.) Examples: the hare in The Tortoise and the Hare, Roger Rabbit, Jazz Jackrabbit, the White Rabbit, Zoef the hare in De Fabeltjeskrant, Raving Rabbids A more positive example of this specific stereotype are the Duracell Bunny and Energizer Bunny, who both advertise batteries with extraordinarily durable energy.
The scared rabbit or hare Rabbits and hares can dash away very quickly and seldom seem at ease. The expression “scared as a rabbit” reminds of this image. Example: The fable The Frightened Hares, where hares feel they are so cowardly that they might as well all jump into the river and kill themselves. Only when they notice frogs jumping away from them they realize there are others who are more afraid of them. More examples: The rabbits in Watership Down mostly have fear as a primary character trait (from Fiver's dream-inspired journey away from destruction, to Cowslip's utter denial of the horror his warren faces, to the Efravan colony's acceptance of a police state to ward off dangers).
