Funny animals are animals in cartoons that act like people. In some cartoons there are entire universes populated with funny animals and no human characters in them. How would funny animals be aware of what species they are if there are no human characers around to identify them as such? Cartoons are subjective- artists and animators and audiences KNOW what THEY are because WE can see them.
In cartoons like DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, Talespin and Danger Mouse, there were no human characters, except in the case of Darkwing Duck humans either existed on another planet or hailed from an alternate dimension.
They KNOW they are animals but how can they KNOW of what species they are?

Scrooge McDuck calls himself "the richest duck in the world". How does he know he's a duck? How do the Beagle Boys know they are beagles?
Funny animals are humanized animal characters. They would be sentient. But still how would they KNOW what species they are if HUMANS aren't around to tell them WHAT they are? How would they know WHAT to call themselves? DO you all get what I am saying?
English and all the foreign languages PEOPLE speak are HUMAN languages. So how would these "beings" be capable of speaking English?
