I would have to say movies for sure. My absolute favorite movies all contained at the least speaking animals if not anthropomorphic ones. Especially Robin Hood, an animated version of David Copperfield, Cats Don't Dance, and not to mention just about every cartoon playing at the time including Pinky and the Brain and the rest of the Animaniacs. Also really got into the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. *shrugs* what can I say? lol

All sounds good to me.  :) Say no more.

Most animated films and such are anthropomorphic. There's nothing strange or fringe about it.

To be honest, two words:

Yes.

Star Wing, as it was called here for trademark infringement reasons, on the SNES, was enthralling when I was 8 or so.

When I was young we called them anthropomorphic characters, furry grew out of a need for a snappier word I suppose.

My love started when i was little or litteler i had an imaginary friend named Mittie, an Arctic fox with human specifikations, though she was technically feral in design she had this vest on and could speak human language as well as her own called Prex :3 that all just grew after my interest in writing storylines grew too and i developed what i have now :3

I've seen plenty of cartoons with anthropomorphic characters when I was a kid. I was like 5 or 6 when I first saw them, so I can't really tell when that happened.
Few years later I got access to the internet, saw some **censor** up shit and enjoyed it. And boom, I'm a furry.

Edit: had to edit this because of some typos.

Hm well for me it was when a few of my personal friends started talking to me about their own interests and their own personas. They showed me pictures of various types and I just took interest in it.

Oh man, that's a question with a complex answer. Okay so, I used to like films with talking animal characters when I was little, animal flicks, anthropomorphic or not, were my jam, until I got into anime. I was really big into kemonomimi characters, with ears and tails and over time I found characters with more animal traits (Stuff like snouts rather than noses) until eventually it culminated in the obvious "Ho geez, I guess I'm a furry now" moment when I found myself seeking out the old anthro animal cartoons.

Quite a few things inspired me. Cartoons like Sonic SatAM, Gargoyles, TMNT, The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show; movies like Secret of NIHM, the Rescuers, Disney's Robin Hood and American Tail; and games like Tail Concerto, Banjo Kazooie, Sonic the Hedgehog and Altered Beast. Then what truly locked me in was a visual chat game called Furcadia. That was where I first created my fursona, who started out as a simple, generic wolf prince. But as I roleplayed more, I began to evolve a story around him and got ever more creative.
