** [[FelixTheCat Felix the Cat]] (1936) While Felix was very prominent in the silent era, the rise of sound film ultimately proved to be his downfall. However, he survived as a popular newspaper comic, and did receive a very brief three-cartoon revival via Van Beuren Studios' "Rainbow Parade" series during the 1930s, with a fourth short in the planning stages before the Van Beuren Studio abruptly went belly-up In 1936.

* Aesop's Fables, AKA "Aesop's Film Fables" (1920-1933) inherited from the Fables Studio, which was formerly run by Paul Terry. Originally a long running silent cartoon series, it became a series of sound cartoons which introduced one of the earliest sound cartoons, "Dinnertime", which notably predates Disney's SteamboatWillie by a month. The sound era of the series lasted around 120 shorts, including its sub-series. Paul Terry's Farmer Al Falfa was also a recurring star of the silent shorts, even appearing in a few of the early sound films before Terry, who had left to found [[TerryToons his own studio]], wrangled back the rights to the character.

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

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Grs4j3sFfm4 Panicky Pup]]-feb 24, Tom and Jerry--Foster, Bailey. Notably similar to FleischerStudio's [[WesternAnimation/SwingYouSinners "Swing, You Sinners!"]]

* 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". 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.
