* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Some of Lantz's shorts have very well orchestrated music--to name a few:
** WesternAnimation/TheBarberOfSeville
** 21 Dollars a Day (Once A Month)
** Scrub Me Mama With A Boogie Beat
** Abou Ben Boogie
** The Greatest Man In Siam
* 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.
* DorkAge: His run on WesternAnimaiotn/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit, for Creator/{{Disney}} fans.
* EarWorm: Lantz was also adept at making these, such as "The Woody Woodpecker Song", "The Woody Woodpecker Polka", and the Chilly Willy theme.
* GrowingTheBeard: The studio had its ups and downs over the years, but its peak years are easily from 1944 to 1949, when Disney veterans ShamusCulhane and Dick Lundy took over directing duties at Lantz, making some of the best cartoons in the studio's history.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The bulk of the studios nearly 600 short output is unavailable, save what has been released on the two Woody Woodpecker DVD sets, and what is available on Jerry Beck's Cartoon Research "Garage Sale" website.
* SoOkayItsAverage: The general film historian opinion of Walter Lantz's work; not as good as Creator/WaltDisney's or WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, but much better than FamousStudios or Creator/{{Terrytoons}}.
* ValuesDissonance: Some of his shorts suffered from this, but they're much rarer cases than you would find from the other studios. "Scrub Me Mama With a Boogie Beat" in particular is full of this.
* 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 ''MrBugGoesToTown''. Which ironically canceled plans for feature length films from the rivals such as [[Creator/{{Terrytoons}} Paul Terry]] and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warner Bros]].
