The original cartoon star of animation duo Creator/WaltDisney and his longtime friend and partner Creator/UbIwerks [[note]] if one doesn't count ''[[AliceComedies Julius the Cat]]'')[[/note]], '''''Oswald the Lucky Rabbit''''' was once an all-but-forgotten, but very important, character in the HistoryOfAnimation. Despite how obscure he remained for many years, his presence would wind up having a large impact on the future of the cartoon industry as a whole, laying the groundwork and paving the way for Walt Disney's [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts future]] [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon projects]] which would change animation forever.

* PublicDomainSoundtrack: The Robert Israel scores on the DVD set sometimes include snippets of staple PD tunes; ''Tall Timber'' for instance has a snip of the "Dawn" segment of "The William Tell Overture" used when Oswald is in a pond, hunting ducks. ''Trolley Troubles'' new score includes a few notes from "I've Been Working on the Railroad" in the opening.

* GainaxEnding: The end of ''Spooks'', where Oswald is cornered by The Phantom, and he is asked a question: "What sound does a chicken make, when it lays a square egg?" He then slaps Oswald, who says "Ow!" "Correct!" And then the Phantom vanishes, leaving Oswald bewildered and victorious.

* SelfDisposingVillain: The Phantom from ''Spooks''. Just when he has Oswald in his clutches, he proceeds to ask him the "What sound does a chicken make when it lays a square egg?" joke. Oswald can't answer, so he just slaps him to make him say "Ow!" and accepts the compulsive answer as correct, vanishing into thin air.

Meanwhile, back at Creator/{{Universal}}, Charles Mintz got a second season of cartoons made starring Oswald, but tensions between himself and the Universal executives were starting to boil over - specifically, after the overnight success of Mickey Mouse, the executives were more than a little upset that Mintz had let Disney walk away from the studio. After negotiations to bring Walt Disney back to the studio failed,[[note]] apparently learning nothing from the last time, Mintz's offer was basically to pay Disney a little more per short, but that Universal would completely own the rights to Mickey Mouse and Mintz would have control over Disney's studio; Walt very politely told Mintz to shove it[[/note]] as well as the second season of Oswald not nearly doing as well as the first, Universal [[LaserGuidedKarma reminded Mintz that]] ''he'' didn't own the rights to Oswald either, and Mintz was fired from the studio in 1929, prompting him to form [[Creator/ColumbiaCartoons his own cartoon studio for Columbia]]--and then proceed to rip off Mickey Mouse with his own ComicStrip/KrazyKat cartoons!

. * CanonDiscontinuity: Warren Spector, head of ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'', decided to ignore mentioning the shorts made by Lantz in the game. There's a possible explanation for this, [[WordOfGod Spector]] says that the original black and white versions of Disney characters (like Clarabelle Cow) are forgotten in Wasteland, their colored versions leaving them behind; it'd the same case for Oswald, whose original self faded into obscurity.

For the third season of shorts, the character was brought in-house and handed over to Creator/WalterLantz, a former Winkler director who would now open a studio of his own, after he [[LostHimInACardGame won the rights to Oswald in a poker game]]. Over the next few years, Oswald became the headlining star of his studio and continued to star in moderately successful cartoons, at least prior to the mid-30's. Lantz, with the help of industry veteran Creator/BillNolan and young staffers like Creator/TexAvery (who would occasionally direct a few shorts in Nolan's steed), took the Oswald series into a more cartoony, fantasy driven direction than what Walt had done with him, distinguishing Oswald from being merely Disney's take on FelixTheCat. The animation became much more loose and organic than Disney's product due to Nolan's fast speed, a compensation for Lantz's low budgets on the series, and the tone of Lantz's shorts shifted to improvised, freewheeling musical-oriented fests, with plenty of off the wall animation to boot. Oddly, Oswald had no regular voice actor in the Lantz era (apart from a period of about a year-and-a-half early on, when Pinto Colvig regularly served as his voice), and studio staff would just take turns voicing him.
