* BreakoutCharacter: DonaldDuck, incidental character in "The Wise Little Hen", would become one of (if not THE) most famous and beloved characters in the Disney pantheon. And according to the book "Mickey and the Gang: Classic Stories In Verse", WaltDisney even had the foresight to realize Donald could be his next big star, having press kits ready by the time "The Wise Little Hen" hit the theaters.

Silly Symphonies brought along ''many'' imitators, including the WarnerBros. cartoon series ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]]'', Max Fleischer's ''WesternAnimation/ColorClassics'', Creator/UbIwerks' ''WesternAnimation/ComiColorCartoons'', Columbia's ''[[Creator/ColumbiaCartoons Color Rhapsodies]]'', Creator/VanBeurenStudios ''Rainbow Parade'', Creator/WalterLantz's ''Cartune Classics'', and Creator/{{MGM}}'s ''WesternAnimation/HappyHarmonies'' from former Disney employees Creator/HarmanAndIsing. The television series ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'' used the Silly Symphonies title for some of its new cartoons, but unlike the original cartoons, these did feature continuing characters. Disney also produced comic strips and comic books with this title.

* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: "Mother Pluto" is a Silly Symphony InNameOnly. The music is there almost by compromise, it plays exactly like [[PlutoThePup Pluto's]] previous appearances, and his official solo series launched the next year. Pluto had starred on his own, as the first time without MickeyMouse, in another short in this series: ''Just Dogs''.
