Or at least, that was how it seemed -- until 2006, when things finally got better; In exchange for trading Al Michaels, a sportscaster, to NBC Universal[[note]]Al Michaels was traded to NBC's Sunday Night Football, as ABC lost the broadcast rights to MondayNightFootball (which moved to Creator/{{ESPN}}, replacing their version of Sunday Night Football in terms of prominence of games broadcast; also included in the deal were some rights to Olympics footage and Friday broadcasts of the Ryder Cup for ESPN)[[/note]], Disney acquired all of the rights to Oswald and his shorts (excluding the post-Disney Universal cartoons), and in 2007, they reintroduced the world to the character via a two-disc DVD collection called '''Walt Disney Treasures: The Adventures of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit'''. A handful of the Lantz Oswalds were also included on the two WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker DVD sets released around the same time.

* Film/TheKingOfJazz: Live action picture with a opening cartoon segment that Ozzie makes a ''very'' brief cameo in. Very first cartoon shot in two-strip technicolor, and as such is Ozzie's first appearance in color.

'''Note''': Belonging to Universal from the start, Oswald, by pure technicality, is '''not''' part of the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts lineup and was technically not even a real Creator/{{Disney}} character until 2006, despite laying the groundwork for Walt and Ub's later work. It is argumentative if Oswald was really the first Disney animated hero because on one hand Disney and Iwerks did create the character, but on the other hand, Disney never had ownership of Oswald to begin with.

Still inspired by his viewings of Creator/CharlieChaplin films, Creator/WinsorMcCay's ''WesternAnimation/GertieTheDinosaur'', as well as Creator/OttoMessmer's ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat'', [[TerryToons Paul Terry's]] ''[[VanBeurenStudios Aesop's Film Fables]]'' and [[Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer Max Fleischer's]] ''WesternAnimation/OutOfTheInkwell'', Walt began striving for higher-quality animation and more dynamic use of rubber-hose animation, as well as much heavier emphasis on personality, story-based gags, and much more attention to story -- this made the series a huge advancement over Walt's earlier ''WesternAnimation/AliceComedies''. While the animation was not quite up to par with the competition, be it technically or drawing wise, Oswald was rife with inventive gags and animation, and benefited from crisp pacing and feel-good premises. Oswald himself, like his successor Mickey, was a likable, scrappy but otherwise rather [[TheEveryman nondescript character]]. Contributing to Oswald's success were animators that would later claim their own stakes in the future of the medium, including his right-hand man and top animator Ub Iwerks (who not only animated, but handled the overall key poses, timing and art direction) [[Creator/HarmanAndIsing Hugh Harman, Rudolph "Rudy" Ising, Norm Blackburn and Rollin "Ham" Hamilton]], Creator/FrizFreleng, [[Creator/DisneysNineOldMen Les Clark]] among more esoteric names like Ben Clopton.

While Creator/{{Disney}} has created many memorable cartoon characters throughout the decades, we must remember [[WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse that it all started with a...]] ''rabbit?''

* ''The King of Jazz'' (1930): A live-action feature starring BingCrosby (in his very first film appearance) and Paul Whiteman, which has an opening cartoon segment that Oswald briefly cameos in. The second cartoon shot in two-strip technicolor, released August 17, just a ''day'' after the ''WesternAnimation/FlipTheFrog'' color short ''Fiddlesticks'', the very first two strip technicolor cartoon got released; regardless, it is Oswald's first color appearance. The movie also had an accompanying Oswald short as a direct tie-in to the film, "My Pal Paul".
