Why name a black cat after something that is, traditionally, white? Because Snowball II is named after her predecessor…Snowball. Who was white. Snowball II reigned in the Simpsons household from 1985 to 2004, until Doctor Hibbert’s Mercedes-Benz hit her. Lisa went through a number of pets, eventually settling on a cat that was identical to Snowball II in every way. Including, after a bit of thought, her name.
The cat has a good relationship with the other household pet, Santa’s Little Helper, and often tries hard to get the attention of Lisa and the rest of the family when she feels ignored.
Bitzer from “Shaun the Sheep”
As part of a British stop-motion claymation show by the creator behind Wallace and Gromit, Bitzer is a bit of an odd duck. Dog. Bitzer is a farmer's loyal dog, and though he is strict about his work as a working dog should, he often needs Shaun the sheep's help getting his duties done.
He wants a quiet life, but with Shaun around, that isn't likely to happen. Though he's close friends with Shaun and the rest of the flock, he's devoted to his farmer. He works hard to keep the flock's true nature a secret from the farmer, believing it would lead him to think he's gone insane.
Iago from “Aladdin”
There are plenty of animal characters from this famous series of Disney movies, and Iago is without a doubt the mouthiest. Since Gilbert Gottfried provides the colorful bird's voice, it was always going to be that way.
Iago began as the bird on villainous Vizier Jafar's shoulder, but he quickly branches out and flies away from Jafar, joining the side of the good guys and gals as Jafar became eviler and eviler. He's mostly out for himself, but he does find the time to help out Aladdin, Jasmine, and the genie every once in a while. His allegiances keep switching, but he remains a fun, memorable character no matter what.
Brian from “Family Guy”
Hardly even a pet, this dog makes it onto the list via being a nominal member of the family. He walks and talks like a human, drinks, drives, is trying to make his way as a writer, and gets into fights.
Most often seen with toddler Stewie, the two travel through time and save the world. Brian also spends a lot of time with his owner, Peter Griffin. This dog even dates human women, which can raise some eyebrows. Still, he sticks with his friends and family and usually tries to help them out, which means he certainly counts as a loyal pet. But just barely.
Weenie from “Oswald”
Weenie – who appears to actually be a hot dog in a bun – is a deuteragonist of “Oswald” alongside her owner, the titular blue octopus.
Weenie is a loyal and affectionate pet who keeps Oswald focused, and stops him from getting carried away on an idea. She loves to play frisbee or with a ball of yarn, and also enjoys howling along as Oswald plays the piano. She communicates in “bark-speak,” doing her best to tell Oswald what she knows. She loves ice cream and sticks with her owner through thick and thin since the very first episode. Her last appearance was the final episode of the show.
