Chickens "In The Mood" and other such... songs

Like dogs doing Jingle Bells and others you will probably fill this thread with…

Is there a name for this genre? Or is it simply filed under Novelty ? (Or stupid.)
Just heard the chickens on a local used car lot commercial on the TV, got me to wondering about stuff like this, and Spike Jones, Dr. Demento finds, other things. But, specifically wondering about a genre name for fake animals performing the piece.
