* BandToon: Many of their series ''(Fat Albert, The Brady Kids, The Archies, etc.)'' involved the characters doing musical numbers as filler, whether or not the characters are professional musicians. The songs were original, and could even become breakout hits (as with "Sugar Sugar" from the Archies), but the main appeal of the trope was surely that the musical numbers could use lots of stock footage.

The studio's first real success came in 1966 with ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfSuperman''; this was soon eclipsed by the runaway popularity of ''WesternAnimation/TheArchieShow'' in 1968. ''Archie'' spun off Filmation's next hit, ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaAndTheGroovieGoolies'', in 1971. In 1972 a bizarre {{crossover}} film was made for ''The ABC Saturday Superstar Movies'' featuring the Groovie Goolies meeting various WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes characters. The studio's first foray into socially conscious cartooning came in 1972 with ''WesternAnimation/FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids''; thereafter, didacticism would be common not only on cartoons like ''WesternAnimation/MissionMagic'' (a precursor to ''Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus'' in featuring a supernaturally endowed teacher, [[PunnyName Miss Tickle]], along with later 1980s pop idol Rick Springfield), but in Filmation's live-action productions as well, such as the environmentally educational ''Ark II'', ''Shazam!'' and ''Isis'' (which featured another magical, HotLibrarian-ish teacher, who transformed into the Egyptian goddess [[[ByThePowerOfGrayskull "O mighty Isis!"]]] in order to fly around in a skimpy skirt and demonstrate social lessons into the bargain).
