Tropes associated with this Company:
- Deranged Animation: Present in a lot of their What a Cartoon! shorts, but especially the ones directed by Pat Ventura.
- Off Model: There were numerous animation mistakes for their work on Ren and Stimpy, including drawing Stimpy's eyes as just black dots in one scene in "Stimpy's Breakfast Tips". They were fired after the first season.
- Production Posse: Hanna-Barbera worked with Fil-Cartoons extensively, though they gradually phased them out in favor of Rough Draft Studios.
