* DoingItForTheArt: Sort of. Unlike his competitors like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Leon Schlesinger]] of Creator/WarnerBros, Fred Quimby of Creator/{{MGM}} and Paul Terry of Creator/{{Terrytoons}}, Lantz actually liked making cartoons and wanted to give his audience the best cartoons he could--without spending too much money in the process, since he did suffer from low budgets.

On top of that, he was considered a BenevolentBoss by his staff, with many of the same crew working with him for decades, lasting all the way up to the studios demise in 1972.

** For fans of Lantz's own cartoons, the studio is considered to have gone into this phase from the mid to late 1950's and on.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Lantz originally planned to make a feature-length animated film, riding off the success of Disney's ''Snow White'', which would have been based on Aladdin. Unfortunately, the project never got off the ground due to the lackluster performance of the FleischerStudios film ''WesternAnimation/MrBugGoesToTown''. Which ironically canceled plans for feature length films from the rivals such as [[Creator/{{Terrytoons}} Paul Terry]] and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warner Bros]].

* NeedsMoreLove: The Lantz studio never quite had all of the ingredients of a great cartoon working all at once, but they still made a ton of wonderful cartoons. If you have the money, buy the WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker collections, or buy the Lantz [=DVDs=] from Jerry Beck's ''Cartoon Research Garage Sale'' Web site, and get a taste of one of the most underrated studios of TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The general film historian opinion of Walter Lantz's work; not as good as WaltDisney's or WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, but much better than FamousStudios or TerryToons.
