Why do many people have the preconception that funny animals are all CUTE?

Seriously, why? I don't like cute. The types of characters I am creating are not meant to be cute.
Not all funny animals are cute-do you people think THESE guys are cute?:

I'm curious to know what you people define as cute.

I am curious because I posed this question:

The person who responded thinks I wast to create cutesy cartoons for kids.

I don't do cute.

A funny animal is the technical term for anthropomorphic animal characters in cartoons and comics and other media.

anthropomorphic animal characters are usually humonid animal characters, but not limited to animal characters that are humanoid. The term pertains to animals that have some human attributes, such as human emotions.

This includes non-humanoid animals like Pluto and Bambi and Figaro:

These characters are cutesy.

The streetfighting cat and dog characters I am working on are inspired in part by characters from the Catillac Cats:

I don't consider these characters cutesy.

I don't consider wacky cartoony characters like the Looney Tunes cutesy:

Howard the Duck wasn't cute:

I am willing to bet most people here don't know too much about either one.
