It is also worth noting that Van Beuren Studios was located directly across the street from FleischerStudios, one of their biggest competitors.

* FollowTheLeader: This was Van Beuren's greatest weakness as a studio; while their animation was as off the wall as you could get, their cartoons were very derivative of what other studios were doing, and they were clearly handicapped by their inability to create unique characters. Many of their early 30's cartoons take their surreal cues straight from their next door rival FleischerStudios; "The Farmerette" even has an obvious BettyBoop stand in, even voiced by one of her actresses, Bonnie Poe. One of their sound fables, "Panicky Pup", is an obvious knockoff of Fleischer's [[WesternAnimation/SwingYouSinners "Swing, You Sinners!"]] Their Tom and Jerry is a flaccid attempt at a ComicStrip/MuttAndJeff-esque duo, and their Milton Mouse and Cubby Bear, as well as their interpretation of WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat, are obvious MickeyMouse knockoffs. Their Toddle Tale and some of their Rainbow Parade cartoons ride off the coat of Disney's SillySymphonies series.

* SissyVillain: The Lepodopterist from "Molly Moo Cow and the Butterflies".

to:

* SissyVillain: The Lepodopterist from "Molly Moo Cow and the Butterflies". He's so [[HarmlessVillain wimpy and nonthreatening]], that the only villainous thing he does is catch butterflies ([[FelonyMisdemeanor at the expense of their freedom]]). He even sings about how he's too cowardly to go chasing after tigers and lions, so he goes after butterflies instead.

* InNameOnly: Only the earliest Aesop's Fables cartoons were loose adaptations of the [[AesopsFables actual Fables]]; later entries usually revolved around cats, mice, and the disgruntled Farmer Al Falfa.

Walt Disney Studios had already made a splash with music and sound effects in their early toons, and Van Beuren promised to follow suit and do the same later on. The producers hired [[NoteworthyDisneyStaff Disney veterans]] Burt Gillett and Tom Palmer to create a new series in hopes of jump-starting the B-list studio’s reputation. The somewhat well-received series was called “Rainbow Parade”, a series of lavish SillySymphonies clones, also starring licensed characters like "Toonerville Folks" and "WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat".

* EverythingsNuttierWithSquirrels: The ending of "In the Bag"; Tom got his money bag swapped out with walnuts, and when he opens the bag in the forest and finds out he's been duped, a bunch of squirrels swarm him!

''Van Beuren Studios'' (pronounced Van Burr-en), originally known as the "Fables Studio", was a cartoon studio that lasted from [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1928 to 1936]]. It is the least known cartoon studio of TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, yet its brief history is dotted with interesting films and major animation talents.

* Rainbow Parade (1934-1936); A series of color cartoons that lasted 26 shorts, and includes four sub-series and several oneshot cartoons. More than a few of them are obvious attempts to ride the coat tails of Disney's SillySymphonies.
