In 1943, Lantz attempted to resuscitate the Oswald series via one short, ''The Egg-Cracker Suite'', where the character now sported yet another heavily overhauled redesign -- only to find a cartoon industry that the cutesy hare was completely unsuited to. By this point in time, Disney parodies and fast-paced comedies, as well as ScrewySquirrel-type characters, were all the rage -- including Lantz's own new star, WoodyWoodpecker. As such, the now-domesticated Oswald was given the shaft as a series star altogether, after lasting an impressive 192 short subjects. His last cartoon appearance would be a brief cameo along with WesternAnimation/AndyPanda -- Universal's second major cartoon star -- in the 1951 short ''The Woody Woodpecker Polka''. And aside from comic appearances, occasional TV reruns, the occasional history book anecdote, and two cameos in ''WesternAnimation/ChristmasInTattertown'', the character fell into total obscurity, doomed to be a forgotten relic in animation history...

* DemotedToExtra: Despite being the first real star character Disney had, the modern Disney company is rather conservative with how they use Oswald today, despite owning the character now. While he's by no means an off-limits character and has made numerous cameo roles in some of their films, shorts and theme park attractions, Disney has mostly kept him on the sidelines, and outside of the ''Epic Mickey'' games and a story in "Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #726", he has been given no major roles in newer Disney works.

** Oswald himself is a pretty obvious ersatz of WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat.

* ExtremeOmnigoat: In a gag later reused for "SteamboatWillie", a goat gobbles Oswald's sheet music--so he twists its tail like a crank to make it play the music instead.

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.
